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 you who covers himself [with a garment], (1) stand up, deliver your warning, (2) And thy Sustainer's greatness glorify! (3) And your clothing purify (4) And keep away from Ar-Rujz (the idols)! (5) And do not confer favor to acquire more (6) And for the sake of your Lord, patiently endure. (7) When the trumpet is sounded,. (8) that will surely be a hard day, (9) not an easy day for the unbelievers. (10) LEAVE Me alone [to deal] with him whom I have created alone, (11) To whom I granted resources in abundance, (12) and children living in his presence, (13) and whom I have provided with every resource, (14) Yet is he greedy-that I should add (yet more);- (15) By no means! surely he offers opposition to Our communications. (16) Anon I shall afflict him with a fearful woe. (17) For he thought and he plotted -- (18) So let him be cursed! How he plotted! (19) Again, death seize him, how he determined! (20) Then he looked around, (21) then frowned and scowled; (22) Then turned he back, and grew stiff-necked. (23) And said, “This is nothing but magic learnt from earlier men.” (24) This is nothing but the word of a mortal!" (25) I will surely roast him in the Scorching. (26) What could make you conceive what hell-fire is? (27) It neither spares, nor releases, (28) Darkening and changing the colour of man! (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.
