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 God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
O YOU ENFOLDED in your mantle (of reform), (1) Arise and deliver thy warning! (2) And proclaim the Purity of your Lord. (3) thy robes purify (4) and shun uncleanness, (5) And do not through giving seek thyself to gain, (6) be patient unto your Lord. (7) Finally, when the Trumpet is sounded, (8) that Day will be a hard and distressing Day. (9) Not easy upon the disbelievers. (10) Leave Me (to deal) with him whom I created lonely, (11) And for whom I appointed wealth extended. (12) And sons to be by his side!- (13) and made all things smooth for him; (14) And yet he desires that I should add more! (15) By no means! He has been stubbornly hostile to Our revelation: (16) I shall force him to endure a painful uphill climb! (17) For he thought and he plotted -- (18) But may he be cursed how he plotted; (19) And once more let him be cursed, how he plotted! (20) Then he looked, (21) then he frowned, and scowled, (22) then turned back, and swelling-up with pride, (23) and said, "This is nothing but sorcery from the ancients. (24) “This is nothing but the speech of a man.” (25) I shall surely roast him in Sakar; (26) Would that you really knew what hell is! (27) It shall not spare, nor leave. (28) it scorches the skin; (29) Over it are Nineteen. (30) We have appointed only angels to be wardens of the Fire. We have specified their number only as a trial for those who are bent on denying the truth, so that those who were given the Book might gain in certainty, and those who believe might increase in faith -- and so that neither those who have been given the Scripture nor the believers might have any doubts, and that those sick at heart and those who deny the truth might ask, "What does God mean by this parable?" In this way, God lets go astray whom He wills, and guides whom He wills. And none knows the forces of your Lord but He. This is but a Reminder for man. (31)
