The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
56 verses, revealed in Mecca after Unknown Person (Al-Muzzammil) before The Key (Al-Faatehah)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
O thou wrapped up (in the mantle)! (1) Arise and warn! (2) And proclaim the Purity of your Lord. (3) And your clothing purify (4) shun uncleanness; (5) and do not think that by doing such deeds, you have done a great favor to God. (6) Exercise patience to please your Lord. (7) For when the Trump is sounded (8) That will be- that Day - a Day of Distress,- (9) Not of ease, for disbelievers. (10) Leave Me alone, (to deal) with the (creature) whom I created (bare and) alone!- (11) and designated for him ample wealth, (12) And children present [with him] (13) And made life smooth and comfortable for him! (14) yet he is eager that I increase him. (15) Never! For he is an enemy to Our signs! (16) I will make a distressing punishment overtake him. (17) Indeed, he thought and deliberated. (18) And woe to him! How he plotted!- (19) Again, death seize him, how he determined! (20) Then he looked round; (21) Then he frowned and he looked in a bad tempered way; (22) Then he turned back and was haughty; (23) and said, "This is nothing but sorcery from the ancients. (24) 'this is nothing but mortal speech.' (25) I will surely roast him in the Scorching. (26) And what will make you realize what hell is? (27) It leaveth naught; it spareth naught (28) It shrivelleth the man. (29) and it has nineteen angelic keepers. (30) We have appointed only angels to be wardens of the Fire. We have specified their number only as a trial for those who are bent on denying the truth, so that those who were given the Book might gain in certainty, and those who believe might increase in faith -- and so that neither those who have been given the Scripture nor the believers might have any doubts, and that those sick at heart and those who deny the truth might ask, "What does God mean by this parable?" In this way, God lets go astray whom He wills, and guides whom He wills. And none knows the forces of your Lord but He. This is but a Reminder for man. (31)
