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 enveloped! (1) arise and give warning! (2) And your Lord (Allah) magnify! (3) Thy raiment purify, (4) stay away from sins (5) Give not, thinking to gain greater (6) and be patient unto thy Lord. (7) When the Horn is blown, (8) That shall be - that Day - a day hard. (9) not an easy day for the unbelievers. (10) Leave Me with him whom I created alone, (11) and designated for him ample wealth, (12) And sons always present by his side, (13) And for whom I smoothed everything. (14) yet he is eager that I increase him. (15) Nay, verily, it is against Our messages that he knowingly, stubbornly sets himself (16) I shall force him to endure a painful uphill climb! (17) Verily, he thought and plotted; (18) And woe to him! How he plotted!- (19) Again (self-)destroyed is he, how he planned! - (20) Then he beheld, (21) then frowned and scowled; (22) and he turned his back and behaved arrogantly (23) Then said he: "This is nothing but magic, derived from of old; (24) This is naught but the word of a mortal. (25) I will drive him into Saqar. (26) And what knoweth thou that which the Scorching Fire? (27) It leaveth naught; it spareth naught (28) . Scorching the skin. (29) there are nineteen [angels] in charge of it -- (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)
