56 verses, revealed in Mecca after Unknown Person (Al-Muzzammil) before The Key (Al-Faatehah)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
O thou enveloped! (1) Arise and warn! (2) Proclaim the glory of your Lord; (3) Purify your inner self, (4) and defilement flee! (5) And do not confer favor to acquire more (6) be patient unto your Lord. (7) When the Horn is blown, (8) that day will be a harsh day, (9) Dolorous for the unbelievers. (10) Leave to Me the one, whom I have created all by Myself, (11) and to whom I have granted resources vast, (12) and sons that stand in witness. (13) And spread [everything] before him, easing [his life]. (14) And who yet coveteth that shall increase. (15) Nay! For lo! he hath been stubborn to Our revelations. (16) On him I shall impose a fearful doom. (17) Surely he reflected and guessed, (18) death seized him, how was his determining! (19) May be then be accursed, how he plotted! (20) and then he looks [around for new arguments,] (21) and then he frowns and glares, (22) then he retreated, and waxed proud. (23) And said, "This is not but magic imitated [from others]. (24) "This is nothing but the word of a mortal!" (25) I will soon fling him into hell. (26) and what will teach thee what is Sakar? (27) It does not allow to live, and neither leaves [to die,] (28) making [all truth] visible to mortal man. (29) there are nineteen [angels] in charge of it -- (30) We have appointed only angels to be wardens of the Fire, and their number have We made to be a stumbling-block for those who disbelieve; that those to whom the Scripture hath been given may have certainty, and that believers may increase in faith; and that those to whom the Scripture hath been given and believers may not doubt; and that those in whose hearts there is disease, and disbelievers, may say: What meaneth Allah by this similitude? Thus Allah sendeth astray whom He will, and whom He will He guideth. None knoweth the hosts of thy Lord save Him. This is naught else than a Reminder unto mortals. (31)
