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 thou enveloped! (1) Arise, and warn, (2) and exalt your Lord, (3) And your clothing purify (4) And uncleanness do shun, (5) And do not favour others in order to receive more. (6) But, for thy Lord's (Cause), be patient and constant! (7) For when the Trump is sounded (8) it will be a hard day (9) not an easy day for the unbelievers. (10) Leave him to Me, the one whom I created single. (11) And then granted him resources in abundance. (12) and children as [love's] witnesses, (13) And I adjusted affairs for him adjustably; (14) Yet he wants that I should give him more. (15) By no means; he is stubbornly opposed to Our Signs. (16) On him I shall impose a fearful doom. (17) For he had thought and calculated. (18) Ruin seize him, how did he hatch a scheme? (19) Again (self-)destroyed is he, how he planned! - (20) Then he looked, (21) Then frowned he and showed displeasure. (22) and in the end he turns his back [on Our message,] and glories in his arrogance, (23) said, "This (the Quran) is nothing but magic, inherited from ancient magicians. (24) This is naught but the word of a mortal. (25) I will drive him into Saqar. (26) - Ah, what will convey unto thee what that burning is! - (27) It does not allow anyone to live, and neither does it leave anyone to die; (28) It glows and burns the skin. (29) Above it are nineteen. (30) We have made only angels as the keepers of the fire (for they are the strongest in carrying out Our commands). Our informing (people) of the numbers of these angels is a trial for the disbelievers. It gives more certainty to the people of the Book and strengthens the faith of the believers. The people of the Book and the believers have no doubt about it. We have fixed the number to make the disbelievers and those whose hearts are sick say, "What does God mean by such a parable?" Thus, God guides and causes to go astray whomever He wants. No one knows about the army of your Lord except He Himself. This parable is a reminder for mankind. (31)
