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 (Muhammad SAW) enveloped (in garments)! (1) arise and give warning! (2) And thy Sustainer's greatness glorify! (3) And keep your clothes clean. (4) and defilement flee! (5) And do not favour others in order to receive more. (6) be patient unto your Lord. (7) Then when the horn shall be blown, (8) That, at that time, shall be a difficult day, (9) Far from easy for the disbelievers. (10) Leave him to Me, the one whom I created single. (11) And to whom I granted extensive wealth (12) And sons to be by his side!- (13) And made (life) smooth for him. (14) and yet, he greedily desires that I give him even more! (15) Never! For he is an enemy to Our signs! (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) Indeed, he thought and deliberated. (18) May he be condemned! (19) Again, may he be cursed how he plotted; (20) Then looked he, (21) frowned and scowled, (22) Then he turned back and was proud; (23) said, "This (the Quran) is nothing but magic, inherited from ancient magicians. (24) Naught is this but the word of Man. (25) I will soon fling him into hell. (26) And what have you understood, what hell is! (27) It does not allow anyone to live, and neither does it leave anyone to die; (28) Darkening and changing the colour of 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)
