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 Gracious, Most Merciful
O the Cloaked One! (Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him) (1) arise and warn, (2) and magnify the glory of your Lord, (3) And keep your clothes clean. (4) and flee from the statues! (5) And do not favour others in order to receive more. (6) and persevere for your Lord's sake. (7) When the Horn is blown, (8) That, at that time, shall be a difficult day, (9) For the unbelievers, anything but easy. (10) Leave Me alone, (to deal) with the (creature) whom I created (bare and) alone!- (11) And gave him abundant wealth (12) And children to be by his side! (13) And I adjusted affairs for him adjustably; (14) and yet, he greedily desires that I give yet more! (15) By no means! surely he offers opposition to Our communications. (16) I will constrain him to a hard ascent. (17) For he thought and he plotted -- (18) Perish he! How maliciously he devised! (19) yea, he destroys himself, the way he meditates! (20) Then he looked round; (21) Then he frowned and he scowled; (22) Then he turned back and was arrogant (23) and says, "All this is mere spellbinding eloquence handed down [from olden times]! (24) These are only words from a mere mortal". (25) Soon I will cast him into hell. (26) And what will explain to thee what Hell-Fire is? (27) It leaves nothing, nor does it spare; (28) it scorches the skin; (29) Over it are nineteen (angels as guardians and keepers of Hell). (30) And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers,- in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,- and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, "What symbol doth Allah intend by this?" Thus doth Allah leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind. (31)
