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 Gracious, Most Merciful
O thou shrouded in thy mantle, (1) Arise and warn (2) And thy Lord do thou magnify! (3) And your garments purify! (4) And banish all trepidation. (5) And bestow not favors that you may receive again with increase, (6) And persevere in the way of your Lord. (7) Then, when the Trumpet is sounded (i.e. its second blowing); (8) that shall be a Harsh Day (9) not an easy day for the unbelievers. (10) Leave Me with the one I created alone (11) And for whom I appointed wealth extended. (12) and sons to be by his side, (13) and for whom I have smoothed the way (to power and riches), (14) then he is eager that I should do more. (15) Never. He is refractory of Our signs. (16) I shall soon constrain him to a hard ascent. (17) For he thought and he plotted -- (18) Ruin seize him, how did he hatch a scheme? (19) Again (self-)destroyed is he, how he planned! - (20) Then he looked around, (21) Then frowned he and showed displeasure. (22) then turned back, and swelling-up with pride, (23) And said: "This is nothing but the magic of old, (24) This is nothing but the word of a mortal!" (25) I shall make him suffer the torment of hell. (26) - Ah, what will convey unto thee what that burning is! - (27) It does not allow to live, and neither leaves [to die,] (28) It glows and burns the skin. (29) Over it are nineteen (angels guarding). (30) And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers,- in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,- and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, "What symbol doth Allah intend by this?" Thus doth Allah leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind. (31)
