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 ENFOLDED in your mantle (of reform), 1 Arise and warn, 2 And thy Sustainer's greatness glorify! 3 thy robes purify 4 and flee from the statues! 5 And do not confer favor to acquire more 6 And for the good-will of thy Lord be thou patient. 7 When the Horn is blown, 8 that Day will be a hard and distressing Day. 9 Far from easy for those without Faith. 10 Leave him to Me whom I created alone, 11 and appointed for him ample wealth 12 and sons standing before him, 13 And made life smooth and comfortable for him! 14 And yet he desires that I should add more! 15 By no means! surely he offers opposition to Our communications. 16 Anon I shall afflict him with a fearful woe. 17 Verily, he thought and plotted; 18 And woe to him! How he plotted!- 19 And again perish he! How maliciously he devised! 20 and then he looks [around for new arguments,] 21 frowned and scowled, 22 Then turned he away in pride 23 And said, "This is not but magic imitated [from others]. 24 This is not but the word of a human being." 25 I will cast him into the fire of Hell. 26 - Ah, what will convey unto thee what that burning is! - 27 Naught doth it permit to endure, and naught doth it leave alone!- 28 and it burns the flesh. 29 Over it are nineteen. 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
