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 Beneficent, the Merciful
O THOU [in thy solitude] enfolded! (1) Arise and warn (2) proclaim the greatness of your Lord, (3) And your garments purify! (4) And banish all trepidation. (5) And do not favour others in order to receive more. (6) and for the sake of your Lord, be patient. (7) So when the Trumpet will be blown. (8) It will be a day of distress, (9) It will not be easy for those who deny the truth. (10) Leave Me with him whom I alone have created, (11) and whom I have granted abundant wealth (12) And children to be by his side! (13) and whom I have provided with every resource, (14) and who still desires more. (15) By no means! surely he offers opposition to Our communications. (16) Soon will I visit him with a mount of calamities! (17) For he thought and he plotted -- (18) So let him be cursed! How he plotted! (19) And again perish he! How maliciously he devised! (20) Then he looked round; (21) then he frowned, and scowled, (22) then he retreated and grew proud (23) and said: 'This is no more than traced sorcery; (24) "This is nothing but the word of a mortal!" (25) I will drive him into Saqar. (26) - Ah, what will convey unto thee what that burning is! - (27) It leaves nothing, nor does it spare; (28) and it burns the flesh. (29) Over it are nineteen [angels]. (30) And We have not made the wardens of the fire others than angels, and We have not made their number but as a trial for those who disbelieve, that those who have been given the book may be certain and those who believe may increase in faith, and those who have been given the book and the believers may not doubt, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the unbelievers may say: What does Allah mean by this parable? Thus does Allah make err whom He pleases, and He guides whom He pleases, and none knows the hosts of your Lord but He Himself; and this is naught but a reminder to the mortals. (31)
