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 thou wrapped up (in the mantle)! (1) Arise and warn (2) and magnify the glory of your Lord, (3) And your garments purify! (4) And stay away from idols. (5) and bestow not favour in order to seek from others a greater return, (6) and for the sake of your Lord, be patient. (7) When the trumpet is sounded,. (8) that very Day shall be a day of anguish, (9) Far from easy for those without Faith. (10) Leave Me alone, (to deal) with the (creature) whom I created (bare and) alone!- (11) and to whom I have granted resources vast, (12) And children present [with him] (13) and whom I have provided with every resource, (14) Yet he desires that I should give more. (15) By no means! He has been stubbornly hostile to Our revelation: (16) I shall inflict on him hardship, (17) Behold, [when Our messages are conveyed to one who is bent on denying the truth,] he reflects and meditates [as to how to disprove them] (18) death seized him, how was his determining! (19) Again, ruin seize him, how did he hatch a scheme? (20) Then he thought; (21) frowned and scowled, (22) Then he turned back and was haughty; (23) Then he said: "This is nothing but magic from that of old; (24) This is not but the word of a human being." (25) Anon shall I roast him into the Scorching Fire. (26) And what can make you know what is Saqar? (27) It lets nothing remain and leaves nothing [unburned], (28) Blackening the skins. (29) Over it are nineteen (angels guarding). (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)
