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 God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
O thou enveloped! (1) stand up, deliver your warning, (2) and exalt your Lord, (3) And your garments purify! (4) shun uncleanness; (5) Give not, thinking to gain greater (6) And for the good-will of thy Lord be thou patient. (7) And when the trumpet is blown, (8) That, at that time, shall be a difficult day, (9) for the unbelievers not easy. (10) LEAVE Me alone [to deal] with him whom I have created alone, (11) And gave him vast wealth. (12) and children as [love's] witnesses, (13) And made several preparations for him. (14) Then he desires that I should add more. (15) By no means! surely he offers opposition to Our communications. (16) and I shall constrain him to a hard ascent. (17) He reflected and then hatched a scheme. (18) and woe to him; how he plotted! (19) Again, death seized him, how was his determining! (20) Then looked he, (21) Then he frowned and scowled; (22) Then he turned back and was haughty; (23) Then said he: "This is nothing but magic, derived from of old; (24) This is naught else than speech of mortal man. (25) [Hence,] I shall cause him to endure hell-fire [in the life to come]! (26) And what do you know what Hell is? (27) It leaves naught nor does it spare aught. (28) making [all truth] visible to mortal man. (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)
