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
Cloaked one, (1) Arise, and warn. (2) And your Lord glorify (3) cleanse your clothes, (4) Pollution shun! (5) And do not confer favor to acquire more (6) And persevere in the way of your Lord. (7) When the trumpet is sounded,. (8) That, at that time, shall be a difficult day, (9) For the infidels, not easy. (10) Leave Me and him whom I created alone, (11) And then granted him resources in abundance. (12) And sons always present by his side, (13) And made life smooth and comfortable for him! (14) Yet is he greedy-that I should add (yet more);- (15) Never will he receive more. He has been hostile to Our revelations. (16) I will constrain him to a hard ascent. (17) For lo! he did consider; then he planned - (18) So accursed be he, how evilly did he decide! (19) Again, ruin seize him, how did he hatch a scheme? (20) Then looked he, (21) then frowned and scowled; (22) Then he turned back and was proud; (23) and says, "All this is mere spellbinding eloquence handed down [from olden times]! (24) These are only words from a mere mortal". (25) Anon shall I roast him into the Scorching Fire. (26) What could make you conceive what hell-fire is? (27) It spares nothing; it leaves nothing intact; (28) It strips away the hide of man. (29) Over it are nineteen keepers. (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)
