The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
56 verses, revealed in Mecca after Unknown Person (Al-Muzzammil) before The Key (Al-Faatehah)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
O YOU ENFOLDED in your mantle (of reform), (1) Arise, and warn. (2) And thy Sustainer's greatness glorify! (3) thy robes purify (4) And all abomination shun! (5) do not bestow a favour in the expectation of receiving more in return; (6) but unto thy Sustainer turn in patience. (7) For when the trumpet shall sound, (8) That, at that time, shall be a difficult day, (9) For the unbelievers, anything but easy. (10) Leave Me with him whom I alone have created, (11) To whom I granted resources in abundance, (12) and children as [love's] witnesses, (13) And spread [everything] before him, easing [his life]. (14) Yet is he greedy-that I should add (yet more);- (15) By no means! He has been stubbornly hostile to Our revelation: (16) I will cover him with arduous torment. (17) Indeed, he thought and deliberated. (18) And woe to him! How he plotted!- (19) yea, he destroys himself, the way he meditates! (20) Then looked he, (21) Then he frowned and he scowled; (22) Then he turned back and was big with pride, (23) He said, 'This is naught but a trumped-up sorcery; (24) This is not but the word of a human being." (25) Him shall I soon roast in Hell. (26) Would that you really knew what hell is! (27) It neither spares, nor releases, (28) making [all truth] visible to mortal man. (29) Above it are nineteen. (30) We have not appointed the guards of hell, except angels; and did not keep this number except to test the disbelievers in order that the People given the Book(s) may be convinced, and to increase the faith of the believers and so that the People given the Book(s) and the Muslims may not have any doubt and so that those in whose hearts is a disease and the disbelievers, may say, “What does Allah mean by this amazing example?” This is how Allah sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills; and no one knows the armies of Allah except Him; and this is not but an advice to man. (31)
