56 verses, revealed in Mecca after Unknown Person (Al-Muzzammil) before The Key (Al-Faatehah)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
O THOU [in thy solitude] enfolded! 1 arise and warn, 2 And thine Lord magnify! 3 And thy garments keep free from stain! 4 And all defilement shun! 5 Do not give, thinking to gain greater 6 be patient unto your Lord. 7 When the Trumpet shall be sounded, 8 So that is a tough day. 9 and it will not be easy for the unbelievers. 10 LEAVE Me alone [to deal] with him whom I have created alone, 11 and whom I have granted abundant wealth 12 and children living in his presence, 13 And made (life) smooth for him. 14 then he is eager that I should do more. 15 Never! For he is an enemy to Our signs! 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 For he thought and he plotted;- 18 May he be accursed, how he planned! 19 Again, death seize him, how he determined! 20 Then he thought; 21 Then frowned and grimaced. 22 Then turned he back, and grew stiff-necked. 23 and says, "All this is mere spellbinding eloquence handed down [from olden times]! 24 Naught is this but the word of Man. 25 I shall surely roast him in Sakar; 26 - Ah, what will convey unto thee what that burning is! - 27 It neither spares, nor releases, 28 and it burns the flesh. 29 Above it are nineteen guards. 30 We have appointed only angels to be wardens of the Fire. We have specified their number only as a trial for those who are bent on denying the truth, so that those who were given the Book might gain in certainty, and those who believe might increase in faith -- and so that neither those who have been given the Scripture nor the believers might have any doubts, and that those sick at heart and those who deny the truth might ask, "What does God mean by this parable?" In this way, God lets go astray whom He wills, and guides whom He wills. And none knows the forces of your Lord but He. This is but a Reminder for man. 31
