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, wrapped in your cloak, 1 Arise and warn! 2 And your Lord (Allah) magnify! 3 and purify your clothing, 4 and shun uncleanness, 5 Give not, thinking to gain greater 6 For the sake of thy Lord, be patient! 7 When the trumpet is sounded,. 8 That shall be - that Day - a day hard. 9 For the disbelievers - not easy. 10 Leave him to Me, the one whom I created single. 11 To whom I granted resources in abundance, 12 And sons to be by his side!- 13 To whom I made (life) smooth and comfortable! 14 And yet he desires that I should add more! 15 Nay! He is forward unto Our signs; 16 Soon I shall mount him on Saood, the hill of fire. 17 He planned and plotted. 18 So accursed be he, how evilly did he decide! 19 And again perish he! How maliciously he devised! 20 Then he looked round; 21 and then he frowns and glares, 22 Then he turned back and was haughty; 23 And said: "This is nothing but the magic of old, 24 "This is nothing but the word of a mortal!" 25 I will soon fling him into hell. 26 And what will make you realize what hell is? 27 It leaves nothing, nor does it spare; 28 It scorches people's skin 29 Above it are nineteen guards. 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
