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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
O YOU ENFOLDED in your mantle (of reform), (1) arise, and warn! (2) Proclaim the glory of your Lord; (3) And thine inner self purify! (4) And uncleanliness avoid (5) And bestow not favors that you may receive again with increase, (6) For the sake of thy Lord, be patient! (7) And when the trumpet is blown, (8) It will be a day of distress, (9) not an easy day 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 as [love's] witnesses, (13) and for whom I have smoothed the way (to power and riches), (14) yet he is eager that I increase him. (15) Never. He is refractory of 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) He planned and plotted. (18) So may he be destroyed [for] how he deliberated. (19) What an evil plan he has made! (20) Then looked he, (21) frowned and scowled, (22) then he retreated, and waxed proud. (23) Then said he: "This is nothing but magic, derived from of old; (24) Nothing more than the speech of a man!" (25) [Hence,] I shall cause him to endure hell-fire [in the life to come]! (26) And what will make you know exactly what Hell-fire is? (27) It spares not (any sinner), nor does it leave (anything unburnt)! (28) Darkening and changing the colour of man! (29) Over it are appointed nineteen. (30) And We have not made the keepers of the Fire except angels. And We have not made their number except as a trial for those who disbelieve - that those who were given the Scripture will be convinced and those who have believed will increase in faith and those who were given the Scripture and the believers will not doubt and that those in whose hearts is hypocrisy and the disbelievers will say, "What does Allah intend by this as an example?" Thus does Allah leave astray whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And none knows the soldiers of your Lord except Him. And mention of the Fire is not but a reminder to humanity. (31)
