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 in thy cloak, (1) Arise and warn! (2) proclaim the greatness of your Lord, (3) cleanse your clothes, (4) stay away from sins (5) And do not confer favor to acquire more (6) and persevere for your Lord's sake. (7) Then when the horn shall be blown, (8) That will be- that Day - a Day of Distress,- (9) not of ease, for all who [now] deny the truth! (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 vast wealth. (12) and sons to be by his side, (13) And made life smooth and comfortable for him! (14) And who yet coveteth that shall increase. (15) Never! For he is an enemy to Our signs! (16) I will cover him with arduous torment. (17) Indeed, he thought and deliberated. (18) So may he be destroyed [for] how he deliberated. (19) Again accursed be he, how evilly did he decide! (20) Then he thought; (21) frowned and scowled; (22) then he retreated and grew proud (23) Then he said: This is naught but enchantment, narrated (from others); (24) "This is nothing but the word of a human being!" (25) Soon will I cast him into Hell-Fire! (26) Would that you really knew what hell is! (27) It neither spares, nor releases, (28) It shrivelleth the man. (29) Over it are nineteen (guards). (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)
