56 verses, revealed in Mecca after Unknown Person (Al-Muzzammil) before The Key (Al-Faatehah)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
O thou shrouded in thy mantle, (1) Arise, and warn, (2) and magnify the glory of your Lord, (3) And your garments purify! (4) shun uncleanness; (5) Give not, thinking to gain greater (6) And for the good-will of thy Lord be thou patient. (7) For when the trumpet is sounded, (8) Truly, that Day will be a Hard Day. (9) not an easy day for the unbelievers. (10) Leave Me with him whom I alone have created, (11) And gave him vast wealth. (12) and sons that stand in witness. (13) whose life I have made run smoothly (14) and yet, he greedily desires that I give him even more! (15) No! Indeed, he has been toward Our verses obstinate. (16) Anon I shall afflict him with a fearful woe. (17) Indeed he thought, and inwardly decided. (18) And woe to him! How he plotted!- (19) Again, death seize him, how he determined! (20) and then he looks [around for new arguments,] (21) frowned and scowled; (22) Then he turned back and was proud; (23) Then he said: "This is nothing but magic from that of old; (24) 'this is nothing but mortal speech.' (25) [Hence,] I shall cause him to endure hell-fire [in the life to come]! (26) And what do you know what Hell is? (27) It spares not (any sinner), nor does it leave (anything unburnt)! (28) Burning the skins! (29) over it are nineteen. (30) We have not appointed the guards of hell, except angels; and did not keep this number except to test the disbelievers in order that the People given the Book(s) may be convinced, and to increase the faith of the believers and so that the People given the Book(s) and the Muslims may not have any doubt and so that those in whose hearts is a disease and the disbelievers, may say, “What does Allah mean by this amazing example?” This is how Allah sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills; and no one knows the armies of Allah except Him; and this is not but an advice to man. (31)
