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 Merciful, the Compassionate
O thou wrapped up (in the mantle)! (1) Arise, and warn, (2) And proclaim the Purity of your Lord. (3) and purify your clothing, (4) And keep away from Ar-Rujz (the idols)! (5) Do not bestow favours in expectation of return, (6) And persevere in the way of your Lord. (7) Finally, when the Trumpet is sounded, (8) That shall be - that Day - a day hard. (9) and it will not be easy for the unbelievers. (10) Leave Me alone with he whom I created (11) And to whom I granted extensive wealth (12) and sons to be by his side, (13) And for whom I smoothed everything. (14) Yet is he greedy-that I should add (yet more);- (15) Nay! Verily, he has been stubborn and opposing Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). (16) I shall oblige him to (climb a slippery mountain in the Hell-fire called As-Sa'ud, or to) face a severe torment! (17) Indeed he thought, and inwardly decided. (18) But may he be cursed how he plotted; (19) Then may he be destroyed [for] how he deliberated. (20) Then he beheld, (21) then frowned and scowled; (22) Then turned his back and waxed proud, (23) and said: “This (Qur'an) is merely a sorcery of yore; (24) “This is nothing but the speech of a man.” (25) I shall surely roast him in Sakar; (26) And what have you understood, what hell is! (27) It neither spares, nor releases, (28) Burning the skins! (29) Over it are nineteen keepers. (30) We have appointed none but angels as the keepers of the Fire, and We have not made their number but as a trial for the unbelievers so that those who have been endowed with the Book will be convinced and the believers' faith will increase, and neither those who have been endowed with the Book nor the believers will fall into any doubt. As for those in whose hearts there is a sickness as well as the unbelievers, they will say: “What did Allah aim at by this strange parable?” Thus does Allah let whomsoever He pleases to go astray, and directs whomsoever He pleases to the Right Way. And none knows the hosts of your Lord but He. (And Hell has only been mentioned here) that people may take heed. (31)
