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
Cloaked one, (1) arise and give warning! (2) And thy Sustainer's greatness glorify! (3) thy robes purify (4) and flee from the statues! (5) And do not through giving seek thyself to gain, (6) And for the good-will of thy Lord be thou patient. (7) When the Trumpet shall be sounded, (8) it will be a hard day (9) For the unbelievers, anything but easy. (10) Leave to Me the one, whom I have created all by Myself, (11) And then granted him resources in abundance. (12) And sons always present by his side, (13) I made things smooth and easy for him, (14) yet he is eager that I increase him. (15) Never will he receive more. He has been hostile to Our revelations. (16) I will cover him with arduous torment. (17) He reflected and then hatched a scheme. (18) But may he be cursed how he plotted; (19) And once more let him be cursed, how he plotted! (20) Then he considered [again]; (21) frowned and scowled, (22) Then he turned back and was proud; (23) Then he said: This is naught but enchantment, narrated (from others); (24) This is naught else than speech of mortal man. (25) I shall surely roast him in Sakar; (26) And what will make you know exactly what Hell-fire is? (27) It does not allow anyone to live, and neither does it leave anyone to die; (28) . Scorching the skin. (29) Over it are nineteen (guards). (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)
