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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
O YOU ENFOLDED in your mantle (of reform), (1) Rise up and warn! (2) And thy Sustainer's greatness glorify! (3) cleanse your clothes, (4) And banish all trepidation. (5) And give not a thing in order to have more (or consider not your deeds of Allah's obedience as a favour to Allah). (6) But for your Lord be patient. (7) Then, when the Trumpet is sounded (i.e. its second blowing); (8) That, at that time, shall be a difficult day, (9) It will not be easy for those who deny the truth. (10) Leave Me alone, (to deal) with the (creature) whom I created (bare and) alone!- (11) and appointed for him ample wealth (12) and sons that stand in witness. (13) To whom I made (life) smooth and comfortable! (14) Yet is he greedy-that I should add (yet more);- (15) Never! For he is an enemy to Our signs! (16) I shall soon constrain him to a hard ascent. (17) For he thought and he plotted;- (18) And woe to him! How he plotted!- (19) Again, ruin seize him, how did he hatch a scheme? (20) Then he looked, (21) Then he frowned and scowled; (22) Then he turned back and was big with pride, (23) and said: 'This is no more than traced sorcery; (24) "This is nothing but the word of a human being!" (25) Soon I will cast him into hell. (26) - Ah, what will convey unto thee what that burning is! - (27) It spares nothing; it leaves nothing intact; (28) It glows and burns the skin. (29) Over it are Nineteen. (30) And We have not made the keepers of the Fire except angels. And We have not made their number except as a trial for those who disbelieve - that those who were given the Scripture will be convinced and those who have believed will increase in faith and those who were given the Scripture and the believers will not doubt and that those in whose hearts is hypocrisy and the disbelievers will say, "What does Allah intend by this as an example?" Thus does Allah leave astray whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And none knows the soldiers of your Lord except Him. And mention of the Fire is not but a reminder to humanity. (31)
