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 Compassionate
O you enveloped in your cloak! (1) Arise and warn, (2) And thy Lord do thou magnify! (3) purify your garments; (4) and flee from the statues! (5) And bestow not favors that you may receive again with increase, (6) For the sake of thy Lord, be patient! (7) Then, when the Trumpet is sounded (i.e. its second blowing); (8) that very Day shall be a day of anguish, (9) and for the disbelievers, in particular, it will not be at all easy. (10) LEAVE Me alone [to deal] with him whom I have created alone, (11) And to whom I granted extensive wealth (12) and sons that stand in witness. (13) and whom I have provided with every resource, (14) Yet he wants that I should give him more. (15) By no means! For to Our Signs he has been refractory! (16) I will make a distressing punishment overtake him. (17) He reflected, and then determined (18) (Self-)destroyed is he, how he planned! (19) yea, he destroys himself, the way he meditates! (20) May he be condemned again for his schemes! He looked around, (21) Then frowned he and scowled. (22) and he turned his back and behaved arrogantly (23) And said, "This is not but magic imitated [from others]. (24) Nothing more than the speech of a man!" (25) I will soon fling him into 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 scorches (even) the skin. (29) Over it are appointed nineteen. (30) We have appointed none but angels as the keepers of the Fire, and We have not made their number but as a trial for the unbelievers so that those who have been endowed with the Book will be convinced and the believers' faith will increase, and neither those who have been endowed with the Book nor the believers will fall into any doubt. As for those in whose hearts there is a sickness as well as the unbelievers, they will say: “What did Allah aim at by this strange parable?” Thus does Allah let whomsoever He pleases to go astray, and directs whomsoever He pleases to the Right Way. And none knows the hosts of your Lord but He. (And Hell has only been mentioned here) that people may take heed. (31)
