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 Beneficent, the Merciful
O THOU [in thy solitude] enfolded! 1 Arise, and warn. 2 And thine Lord magnify! 3 And thine inner self purify! 4 And stay away from idols. 5 Do not bestow favours in expectation of return, 6 But for your Lord be patient. 7 And when the trumpet is blown, 8 Surely that day will be a day of anguish, 9 For the unbelievers, anything but easy. 10 LEAVE Me alone [to deal] with him whom I have created alone, 11 And then granted him resources in abundance. 12 And gave him sons present before him. 13 and for whom I have smoothed the way (to power and riches), 14 Yet he wants that I should give him more. 15 By no means! surely he offers opposition to Our communications. 16 I will cover him with arduous torment. 17 Verily he considered, and devised. 18 So let him be cursed! How he plotted! 19 Yea, Woe to him; How he plotted!- 20 Then he considered [again]; 21 Then he frowned and he looked in a bad tempered way; 22 and in the end he turns his back [on Our message,] and glories in his arrogance, 23 And said, "This is not but magic imitated [from others]. 24 This is nothing but the word of mortal man!" 25 Him shall I fling unto the burning. 26 And what could make thee conceive what hell-fire is? 27 It shall not spare, nor leave. 28 Burning the skins! 29 Over it are nineteen (guards). 30 And We have not made the wardens of the fire others than angels, and We have not made their number but as a trial for those who disbelieve, that those who have been given the book may be certain and those who believe may increase in faith, and those who have been given the book and the believers may not doubt, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the unbelievers may say: What does Allah mean by this parable? Thus does Allah make err whom He pleases, and He guides whom He pleases, and none knows the hosts of your Lord but He Himself; and this is naught but a reminder to the mortals. 31
