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, most benevolent, ever-merciful
O THOU [in thy solitude] enfolded! (1) Arise and warn! (2) proclaim the greatness of your Lord, (3) and purify your clothing, (4) shun uncleanness; (5) And bestow not favors that you may receive again with increase, (6) and be patient unto thy Lord. (7) So when the Trumpet will be blown. (8) that shall be a Harsh Day (9) and it will not be easy for the unbelievers. (10) Leave Me Alone (to deal) with whom I created Alone (without any means, i.e. Al-Walid bin Al-Mughirah Al-Makhzumi)! (11) And gave him vast wealth. (12) and sons to be by his side, (13) and made all things smooth for him; (14) and who still desires more. (15) Never! For he is an enemy to Our signs! (16) I shall oblige him to (climb a slippery mountain in the Hell-fire called As-Sa'ud, or to) face a severe torment! (17) Behold, [when Our messages are conveyed to one who is bent on denying the truth,] he reflects and meditates [as to how to disprove them] (18) and thus he destroys himself, the way he meditates: (19) Again, death seized him, how was his determining! (20) He then dared to lift his gaze. (21) then he frowned and scowled, (22) Then he turned back and was haughty; (23) and said: “This (Qur'an) is merely a sorcery of yore; (24) This is not but the word of a human being." (25) I will soon fling him into hell. (26) And what will explain to thee what Hell-Fire is? (27) It leaves and spares no one and nothing. (28) scorching the flesh; (29) Over it are appointed nineteen. (30) We have not appointed any one but angels as keepers of Hell, and their number that We have fixed is to make it a means of contention for disbelievers, so that those who were given the Book may be certain, and the faith of the believers may have greater increase, and the people of the Book and believers may not be deceived, and the sceptics and infidels may say: "What does God mean by this parable?" That is how God leads whosoever He will astray, and guides whosoever He will. None knows the armies of your Lord save Him self. This is no more than reminder for mankind. (31)
