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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
O you enveloped in your cloak! (1) Arise and warn! (2) and magnify the glory of your Lord, (3) And thine inner self purify! (4) and flee from the statues! (5) And give not a thing in order to have more (or consider not your deeds of Allah's obedience as a favour to Allah). (6) And for the sake of your Lord, be patient. (7) Finally, when the Trumpet is sounded, (8) Truly, that Day will be a Hard Day. (9) and for the disbelievers, in particular, it will not be at all easy. (10) Leave Me alone [to deal] with him whom I have created alone, (11) And to whom I granted extensive wealth (12) And sons present by his side. (13) whose life I have made run smoothly (14) yet he is eager that I increase him. (15) By no means! surely he offers opposition to Our communications. (16) I shall soon constrain him to a hard ascent. (17) He planned and plotted. (18) May he be condemned! (19) Again, ruin seize him, how did he hatch a scheme? (20) Then he looked, (21) and then he frowns and glares, (22) Then turned he back, and grew stiff-necked. (23) said, "This (the Quran) is nothing but magic, inherited from ancient magicians. (24) It is nothing but the word of a mortal' (25) [Hence,] I shall cause him to endure hell-fire [in the life to come]! (26) What could make you conceive what hell-fire is? (27) It lets nothing remain and leaves nothing [unburned], (28) scorching the flesh; (29) there are nineteen [angels] in charge of it -- (30) And We have not made the keepers of the Fire except angels. And We have not made their number except as a trial for those who disbelieve - that those who were given the Scripture will be convinced and those who have believed will increase in faith and those who were given the Scripture and the believers will not doubt and that those in whose hearts is hypocrisy and the disbelievers will say, "What does Allah intend by this as an example?" Thus does Allah leave astray whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And none knows the soldiers of your Lord except Him. And mention of the Fire is not but a reminder to humanity. (31)
