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 YOU ENFOLDED in your mantle (of reform), (1) Rise up and warn! (2) And proclaim the Purity of your Lord. (3) cleanse your clothes, (4) stay away from sins (5) And do not favour others in order to receive more. (6) and persevere for your Lord's sake. (7) And [warn all men that] when the trumpet-call [of resurrection] is sounded, (8) Truly, that Day will be a Hard Day. (9) Far from easy for the disbelievers. (10) Leave Me with the one I created alone (11) And give him vast riches, (12) And sons present by his side. (13) To whom I made (life) smooth and comfortable! (14) and yet, he greedily desires that I give him even more! (15) Not at all! Surely, he has been disobedient to Our verses. (16) Anon I shall afflict him with a fearful woe. (17) Lo! He reflected, and determined -- (18) and thus he destroys himself, the way he meditates: (19) Let him be destroyed. How he calculated! (20) Then looked he, (21) then frowned and scowled; (22) then he retreated and waxed proud, (23) and said, "This is nothing but sorcery from the ancients. (24) These are only words from a mere mortal". (25) I will cast him into the fire of Hell. (26) And what will explain to thee what Hell-Fire is? (27) It leaveth naught; it spareth naught (28) and it burns the flesh. (29) Over it are nineteen [angels]. (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)
