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 thou wrapped up (in the mantle)! (1) Arise and warn! (2) and magnify the glory of your Lord, (3) Purify your inner self, (4) And pollution shun. (5) Do not give, thinking to gain greater (6) Exercise patience to please your Lord. (7) When the Trumpet shall be sounded, (8) So that is a tough day. (9) For the infidels, not easy. (10) Leave Me with the one I created alone (11) And gave him abundant wealth (12) And children present [with him] (13) whose life I have made run smoothly (14) and yet, he greedily desires that I give yet more! (15) Never. He is refractory of Our signs. (16) Anon I shall afflict him with a fearful woe. (17) For lo! he did consider; then he planned - (18) Perish he! How maliciously he devised! (19) yea, he destroys himself, the way he meditates! (20) Then he looked around, (21) then he frowned and scowled, (22) Then turned he back, and grew stiff-necked. (23) And said: This is naught else than magic from of old; (24) This is naught else than speech of mortal man. (25) I will cast him into Hell-fire (26) What will let you know what the Scorching is like! (27) It does not allow to live, and neither leaves [to die,] (28) making [all truth] visible to mortal man. (29) Over it are nineteen [powers]. (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)
