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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
O thou enveloped in thy cloak, (1) Arise and warn! (2) And thy Sustainer's greatness glorify! (3) cleanse your clothes, (4) shun uncleanness; (5) and bestow not favour in order to seek from others a greater return, (6) and for the sake of your Lord, be patient. (7) Finally, when the Trumpet is sounded, (8) that day will be a harsh day, (9) It will not be easy for those who deny the truth. (10) Leave Me with the one I created alone (11) and whom I have granted abundant wealth (12) And gave him sons present before him. (13) And I adjusted affairs for him adjustably; (14) And yet he desires that I should add more! (15) No! Indeed, he has been toward Our verses obstinate. (16) I will cover him with arduous torment. (17) Surely he reflected and guessed, (18) May he be condemned! (19) May be then be accursed, how he plotted! (20) Then he considered [again]; (21) Then he frowned and scowled, (22) then he retreated, and waxed proud. (23) said, "This (the Quran) is nothing but magic, inherited from ancient magicians. (24) "This is nothing but the word of a human being!" (25) I will cast him into hell. (26) What could make you conceive what hell-fire is? (27) It leaves and spares no one and nothing. (28) Blackening the skins. (29) Over it are Nineteen. (30) We have appointed none but angels to guard the Fire, and made their number only as a trial for the unbelievers, so that those to whom the Book was given are certain and those who believe increase in belief. And that those who were given the Book, and those who believe will not be in doubt. And that those in whose hearts there is a sickness, together with the unbelievers, may say: 'What did Allah intend by this as an example' As such, Allah leaves in error whom He will and He guides whomsoever He will. None knows the hosts of your Lord except He. This is no more than a Reminder to humans. (31)
