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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
O THOU [in thy solitude] enfolded! (1) Arise and warn (2) and magnify the glory of your Lord, (3) purify your garments; (4) And keep away from Ar-Rujz (the idols)! (5) And do not favour others in order to receive more. (6) and be patient unto thy Lord. (7) When the Trumpet shall be sounded, (8) That will be- that Day - a Day of Distress,- (9) Not easy upon the disbelievers. (10) Leave him to Me whom I created alone, (11) And give him vast riches, (12) And sons to be by his side!- (13) whose life I have made run smoothly (14) yet he is eager that I increase him. (15) Nay! Verily, he has been stubborn and opposing Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). (16) I shall soon constrain him to a hard ascent. (17) For he had thought and calculated. (18) May he be condemned! (19) And once more let him be cursed, how he plotted! (20) Then he thought; (21) Then he frowned and he scowled; (22) Then turned he back, and grew stiff-necked. (23) and said: 'This is no more than traced sorcery; (24) "This is nothing but the word of a human being!" (25) Soon will I cast him into Hell-Fire! (26) Would that you really knew what hell is! (27) It neither leaves, nor spares. (28) it scorches the skin; (29) Over it are nineteen (angels as guardians and keepers of Hell). (30) We have appointed none but angels to guard the Fire, and made their number only as a trial for the unbelievers, so that those to whom the Book was given are certain and those who believe increase in belief. And that those who were given the Book, and those who believe will not be in doubt. And that those in whose hearts there is a sickness, together with the unbelievers, may say: 'What did Allah intend by this as an example' As such, Allah leaves in error whom He will and He guides whomsoever He will. None knows the hosts of your Lord except He. This is no more than a Reminder to humans. (31)
