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 Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
O thou enveloped in thy cloak, 1 Rise up and warn! 2 And thy Sustainer's greatness glorify! 3 And thine inner self purify! 4 And all abomination shun! 5 And give not a thing in order to have more (or consider not your deeds of Allah's obedience as a favour to Allah). 6 and persevere for your Lord's sake. 7 For when the trumpet is sounded, 8 That Day will be a difficult day 9 not an easy day for the unbelievers. 10 Leave Me with the one I created alone 11 And give him vast riches, 12 And sons to be by his side!- 13 And for whom I smoothed everything. 14 Yet he desireth that I should give more. 15 Not at all! Surely, he has been disobedient to Our verses. 16 I will cover him with arduous torment. 17 Verily, he thought and plotted; 18 So accursed be he, how evilly did he decide! 19 Let him be destroyed. How he calculated! 20 Then he looked round; 21 and then he frowns and glares, 22 then he retreated, and waxed proud. 23 Then he said: "This is nothing but magic from that of old; 24 "This is nothing but the word of a human being!" 25 Him shall I fling unto the burning. 26 What do you think Hell-fire is? 27 It does not allow anyone to live, and neither does it leave anyone to die; 28 making [all truth] visible to mortal man. 29 there are nineteen [angels] in charge of it -- 30 We have appointed none but angels to guard the Fire, and made their number only as a trial for the unbelievers, so that those to whom the Book was given are certain and those who believe increase in belief. And that those who were given the Book, and those who believe will not be in doubt. And that those in whose hearts there is a sickness, together with the unbelievers, may say: 'What did Allah intend by this as an example' As such, Allah leaves in error whom He will and He guides whomsoever He will. None knows the hosts of your Lord except He. This is no more than a Reminder to humans. 31
