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, you, wrapped in your cloak, (1) arise and warn, (2) Thy Lord magnify (3) And your garments do purify, (4) And pollution shun. (5) And do not through giving seek thyself to gain, (6) and persevere for your Lord's sake. (7) When the Horn is blown, (8) That shall be - that Day - a day hard. (9) and it will not be easy for the unbelievers. (10) Leave Me Alone (to deal) with whom I created Alone (without any means, i.e. Al-Walid bin Al-Mughirah Al-Makhzumi)! (11) And gave him abundant wealth (12) And sons dwelling in his presence, (13) And made things easy for them. (14) Yet he wants that I should give him more. (15) Never. He is refractory of Our signs. (16) Anon I shall afflict him with a fearful woe. (17) Lo! He reflected, and determined -- (18) Perish he! How maliciously he devised! (19) And once more let him be cursed, how he plotted! (20) Then he looked around, (21) Then he frowned and scowled, (22) Then he turned back and was arrogant (23) Then said he: "This is nothing but magic, derived from of old; (24) It is nothing but the word of a mortal' (25) Him shall I soon roast in Hell. (26) What will let you know what the Scorching is like! (27) It spares nothing; it leaves nothing intact; (28) Burning the skins! (29) Over it are nineteen (angels guarding). (30) We have appointed only angels to be wardens of the Fire, and their number have We made to be a stumbling-block for those who disbelieve; that those to whom the Scripture hath been given may have certainty, and that believers may increase in faith; and that those to whom the Scripture hath been given and believers may not doubt; and that those in whose hearts there is disease, and disbelievers, may say: What meaneth Allah by this similitude? Thus Allah sendeth astray whom He will, and whom He will He guideth. None knoweth the hosts of thy Lord save Him. This is naught else than a Reminder unto mortals. (31)
