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 (Prophet Muhamad), the cloaked, (1) Arise and warn! (2) And your Lord do magnify, (3) cleanse your clothes, (4) And all abomination shun! (5) And bestow not favors that you may receive again with increase, (6) And be patient for the sake of your Lord (i.e. perform your duty to Allah)! (7) When the trumpet is sounded,. (8) That Day will be a difficult day (9) Far from easy for the disbelievers. (10) Let Me alone with him whom I created lonely. (11) and to whom I have granted resources in abundance, (12) and sons ever present with him, (13) And made (life) smooth for him. (14) And who yet coveteth that shall increase. (15) Never. He is refractory of Our signs. (16) I will constrain him to a hard ascent. (17) Surely he reflected and guessed, (18) death seize him, how he determined! (19) Again, death seized him, how was his determining! (20) Then looked he, (21) frowned and scowled; (22) then turned back, and swelling-up with pride, (23) And said: "This is nothing but the magic of old, (24) This is naught else than speech of mortal man. (25) I will cast him into Hell-fire (26) And what can make you know what is Saqar? (27) It spares nothing; it leaves nothing intact; (28) It strips away the hide of man. (29) Over it are nineteen. (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)
