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, most benevolent, ever-merciful
O you (Prophet Muhamad), the cloaked, (1) Arise and warn (2) proclaim the greatness of your Lord, (3) And thy garments keep free from stain! (4) And keep away from Ar-Rujz (the idols)! (5) And bestow not favors that you may receive again with increase, (6) and be patient unto thy Lord. (7) For when the trumpet shall sound, (8) It will be a day of distress, (9) Dolorous for the unbelievers. (10) Let Me alone with him whom I created lonely. (11) and appointed for him ample wealth (12) and sons that stand in witness. (13) I made things smooth and easy for him, (14) and yet, he greedily desires that I give him even more! (15) By no means! For to Our Signs he has been refractory! (16) Soon will I visit him with a mount of calamities! (17) Lo! He reflected, and determined -- (18) (Self-)destroyed is he, how he planned! (19) Again, death seize him, how he determined! (20) He looked (at others); (21) frowned and scowled; (22) Then he turned away, and was haughty. (23) Then he said: naught is this but magic from of old; (24) “This is nothing but the speech of a man.” (25) I will surely roast him in the Scorching. (26) What could make you conceive what hell-fire is? (27) It neither spares, nor releases, (28) making [all truth] visible to mortal man. (29) there are nineteen [angels] in charge of it -- (30) We have not appointed any one but angels as keepers of Hell, and their number that We have fixed is to make it a means of contention for disbelievers, so that those who were given the Book may be certain, and the faith of the believers may have greater increase, and the people of the Book and believers may not be deceived, and the sceptics and infidels may say: "What does God mean by this parable?" That is how God leads whosoever He will astray, and guides whosoever He will. None knows the armies of your Lord save Him self. This is no more than reminder for mankind. (31)
