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 shrouded in thy mantle, (1) stand up, deliver your warning, (2) Glorify your Lord, (3) And keep your clothes clean. (4) And banish all trepidation. (5) And bestow not favour that thou mayest receive more. (6) For the sake of thy Lord, be patient! (7) So when the Trumpet will be blown. (8) So that is a tough day. (9) Not of ease, for disbelievers. (10) Leave Me (to deal) with him whom I created lonely, (11) and designated for him ample wealth, (12) and sons ever present with him, (13) To whom I made (life) smooth and comfortable! (14) Yet he desireth that I should give more. (15) Not at all! Surely, he has been disobedient to Our verses. (16) I will make a distressing punishment overtake him. (17) He reflected, and then determined (18) So accursed be he, how evilly did he decide! (19) Again, ruin seize him, how did he hatch a scheme? (20) Then he thought; (21) Then frowned and grimaced. (22) Then turned he away in pride (23) Then he said: naught is this but magic from of old; (24) "This is nothing but the word of a mortal!" (25) I will cast him into hell. (26) What will let you know what the Scorching is like! (27) It does not allow to live, and neither leaves [to die,] (28) It glows and burns the skin. (29) Over 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)
