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 benevolent, ever-merciful
O the Cloaked One! (Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him) (1) arise and give warning! (2) And proclaim the Purity of your Lord. (3) Purify your inner self, (4) Pollution shun! (5) And do not confer favor to acquire more (6) And persevere in the way of your Lord. (7) For when the Trump is sounded (8) That, at that time, shall be a difficult day, (9) for the unbelievers not easy. (10) Leave Me with the one I created alone (11) And to whom I granted extensive wealth (12) And children present [with him] (13) And made several preparations for him. (14) And who yet coveteth that shall increase. (15) By no means! He has been stubbornly hostile to Our revelation: (16) I shall oblige him to (climb a slippery mountain in the Hell-fire called As-Sa'ud, or to) face a severe torment! (17) He reflected, and then determined (18) Ruin seize him, how did he hatch a scheme? (19) Then may he be destroyed [for] how he deliberated. (20) Then he looked round; (21) Then he frowned and scowled; (22) then turned back, and swelling-up with pride, (23) And said: "This is nothing but the magic of old, (24) It is nothing but the word of a mortal' (25) I will soon fling him into hell. (26) Would that you really knew what hell is! (27) It neither spares, nor releases, (28) Darkening and changing the colour of man! (29) Over it are nineteen. (30) We have not appointed any one but angels as keepers of Hell, and their number that We have fixed is to make it a means of contention for disbelievers, so that those who were given the Book may be certain, and the faith of the believers may have greater increase, and the people of the Book and believers may not be deceived, and the sceptics and infidels may say: "What does God mean by this parable?" That is how God leads whosoever He will astray, and guides whosoever He will. None knows the armies of your Lord save Him self. This is no more than reminder for mankind. (31)
