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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
Cloaked one, (1) Arise and deliver thy warning! (2) And proclaim the Purity of your Lord. (3) cleanse your clothes, (4) stay away from sins (5) Do not give, thinking to gain greater (6) And for the sake of your Lord, patiently endure. (7) When the Trumpet shall be sounded, (8) That Day will be a difficult day (9) For the disbelievers - not easy. (10) LEAVE Me alone [to deal] with him whom I have created alone, (11) And then bestowed upon him ample means, (12) And sons dwelling in his presence, (13) And made life smooth and comfortable for him! (14) and who still greedily desires that I should bestow upon him more. (15) By no means! Verily he hath been unto Our signs a foe. (16) I will constrain him to a hard ascent. (17) Lo! He reflected, and determined -- (18) and thus he destroys himself, the way he meditates: (19) Again, may he be cursed how he plotted; (20) Then he looked, (21) then he frowned and scowled, (22) then he retreated, and waxed proud. (23) And said, “This is nothing but magic learnt from earlier men.” (24) It is nothing but the word of a mortal' (25) I shall make him suffer the torment of hell. (26) And what can make you know what is Saqar? (27) It spares not, neither leaves alone (28) it scorches (even) the skin. (29) there are nineteen [angels] in charge of it -- (30) We have appointed none but angels to guard the Fire, and made their number only as a trial for the unbelievers, so that those to whom the Book was given are certain and those who believe increase in belief. And that those who were given the Book, and those who believe will not be in doubt. And that those in whose hearts there is a sickness, together with the unbelievers, may say: 'What did Allah intend by this as an example' As such, Allah leaves in error whom He will and He guides whomsoever He will. None knows the hosts of your Lord except He. This is no more than a Reminder to humans. (31)
