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 [in thy solitude] enfolded! (1) Arise and warn! (2) and magnify the glory of your Lord, (3) And thine inner self purify! (4) And pollution shun. (5) And bestow not favour that thou mayest receive more. (6) And persevere in the way of your Lord. (7) And when the trumpet is blown, (8) That, at that time, shall be a difficult day, (9) For the unbelievers, anything but easy. (10) Leave him to Me, the one whom I created single. (11) And to whom I granted extensive wealth (12) And sons present by his side. (13) And spread [everything] before him, easing [his life]. (14) Yet he desires that I should give more. (15) By no means! He has been stubbornly hostile to Our revelation: (16) Soon will I visit him with a mount of calamities! (17) For lo! he did consider; then he planned - (18) Ruin seize him, how did he hatch a scheme? (19) Again, may he be cursed how he plotted; (20) May he be condemned again for his schemes! He looked around, (21) frowned and scowled; (22) then turned back, and swelling-up with pride, (23) Then he said: This is naught but enchantment, narrated (from others); (24) "This is nothing but the word of a mortal!" (25) Him shall I fling unto the burning. (26) And what can make you know what is Saqar? (27) It spares not (any sinner), nor does it leave (anything unburnt)! (28) scorching the flesh; (29) over it are nineteen. (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)
