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 you who are clothed! (1) arise and give warning! (2) And proclaim the Purity of your Lord. (3) Thy raiment purify, (4) And uncleanness do shun, (5) And bestow not favour that thou mayest receive more. (6) And persevere in the way of your Lord. (7) Then, when the Trumpet is sounded (i.e. its second blowing); (8) Surely that day will be a day of anguish, (9) Not of ease, for disbelievers. (10) Leave him to Me, the one whom I created single. (11) To whom I granted resources in abundance, (12) And sons present by his side. (13) And I adjusted affairs for him adjustably; (14) yet he is eager that I increase him. (15) By no means! He has been stubbornly hostile to Our revelation: (16) We shall make him suffer the torment of hell without relief. (17) For he thought and he plotted -- (18) and thus he destroys himself, the way he meditates: (19) And once more let him be cursed, how he plotted! (20) Then he thought; (21) Then he frowned and scowled, (22) then he retreated and waxed proud, (23) He said, 'This is naught but a trumped-up sorcery; (24) This is naught else than speech of mortal man. (25) I will soon fling him into hell. (26) What do you think Hell-fire is? (27) It spares nothing; it leaves nothing intact; (28) making [all truth] visible to mortal man. (29) Over it are nineteen (angels as guardians and keepers of Hell). (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)
