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
O, you, wrapped in your cloak, (1) Arise and warn! (2) and exalt your Lord, (3) Purify your inner self, (4) And keep away from Ar-Rujz (the idols)! (5) Nor expect, in giving, any increase (for thyself)! (6) And for the good-will of thy Lord be thou patient. (7) When the trumpet is sounded,. (8) That shall be - that Day - a day hard. (9) Far from easy for those without Faith. (10) Let Me alone with him whom I created lonely. (11) And gave him abundant wealth (12) And sons to be by his side!- (13) And made things easy for them. (14) Yet he wants that I should give him more. (15) Nay! For lo! he hath been stubborn to Our revelations. (16) Anon I shall afflict him with a fearful woe. (17) Verily he considered, and devised. (18) Ruin seize him, how did he hatch a scheme? (19) May be then be accursed, how he plotted! (20) Then he considered [again]; (21) Then he frowned and scowled; (22) and he turned his back and behaved arrogantly (23) Then he said: This is naught but enchantment, narrated (from others); (24) 'this is nothing but mortal speech.' (25) I will cast him into Hell-fire (26) And what have you understood, what hell is! (27) It leaveth naught; it spareth naught (28) It scorches people's skin (29) Above it are nineteen guards. (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)
