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 Merciful, the Compassionate
O you who covers himself [with a garment], (1) Arise and deliver thy warning! (2) Thy Lord magnify (3) And keep your clothes clean. (4) And uncleanliness avoid (5) And do not favour others in order to receive more. (6) and persevere for your Lord's sake. (7) For when the Trump is sounded (8) that very Day shall be a day of anguish, (9) not an easy day for the unbelievers. (10) Leave Me and him whom I created alone, (11) To whom I granted resources in abundance, (12) And sons always present by his side, (13) and to whose life I gave so wide a scope: (14) Yet he wants that I should give him more. (15) Nay! For lo! he hath been stubborn to Our revelations. (16) I will cover him with arduous torment. (17) He reflected and then hatched a scheme. (18) Ruin seize him, how did he hatch a scheme? (19) Yea, Woe to him; How he plotted!- (20) Then he beheld, (21) frowned and scowled, (22) Then he turned away, and was haughty. (23) and said, "This is nothing but sorcery from the ancients. (24) 'this is nothing but mortal speech.' (25) I will cast him into Hell-fire (26) And what could make thee conceive what hell-fire is? (27) It leaves nothing, nor does it spare; (28) it scorches the skin; (29) Over it are appointed nineteen. (30) We have appointed only angels to be masters of the Fire, and their number We have appointed only as a trial for the unbelievers, that those who were given the Book may have certainty, and that those who believe may increase in belief, and that those who were given the Book and those who believe may not be in-doubt, and that those in whose hearts there is sickness, and the unbelievers, may say, 'What did God intend by this as a similitude?' So God leads astray whomsoever He will, and He guides whomsoever He will; and none knows the hosts of thy Lord but He. And it is naught but a Reminder to mortals. (31)
