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 Gracious, Most Merciful
Cloaked one, (1) Arise and warn (2) And thy Sustainer's greatness glorify! (3) purify your garments; (4) Pollution shun! (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 trumpet is sounded, (8) that day will be a harsh day, (9) Far from easy for those without Faith. (10) Leave Me and him whom I created alone, (11) To whom I granted resources in abundance, (12) And sons dwelling in his presence, (13) and for whom I have smoothed the way (to power and riches), (14) Yet he wants that I should give him more. (15) Never. He is refractory of Our signs. (16) and I shall constrain him to a hard ascent. (17) For he had thought and calculated. (18) and woe to him; how he plotted! (19) May be then be accursed, how he plotted! (20) Then he thought; (21) Then he frowned and he scowled; (22) then turned back, and swelling-up with pride, (23) And said, "This is not but magic imitated [from others]. (24) "This is nothing but the word of a mortal!" (25) Soon I will cast him into hell. (26) And what could make thee conceive what hell-fire is? (27) It leaves naught nor does it spare aught. (28) It scorches the mortal. (29) there are nineteen [angels] in charge of it -- (30) And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers,- in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,- and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, "What symbol doth Allah intend by this?" Thus doth Allah leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind. (31)
