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 God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
O, you, wrapped in your cloak, (1) Arise and warn, (2) and exalt your Lord, (3) thy robes purify (4) And all defilement shun! (5) And do not confer favor to acquire more (6) And be patient for the sake of your Lord (i.e. perform your duty to Allah)! (7) Finally, when the Trumpet is sounded, (8) So that is a tough day. (9) For the infidels, not easy. (10) Leave Me and him whom I created alone, (11) and whom I have granted abundant wealth (12) And sons always present by his side, (13) To whom I made (life) smooth and comfortable! (14) Yet he desires that I should give more. (15) By no means! Verily he hath been unto Our signs a foe. (16) On him I shall impose a fearful doom. (17) Indeed, he thought and deliberated. (18) So may he be destroyed [for] how he deliberated. (19) What an evil plan he has made! (20) He looked (at others); (21) and then he frowns and glares, (22) Then turned his back and waxed proud, (23) Then said he: "This is nothing but magic, derived from of old; (24) 'this is nothing but mortal speech.' (25) I will cast him into Hell-fire (26) What will let you know what the Scorching is like! (27) It leaves nothing, nor does it spare; (28) and it burns the flesh. (29) Over it are nineteen (angels guarding). (30) We have appointed only angels to be wardens of the Fire. We have specified their number only as a trial for those who are bent on denying the truth, so that those who were given the Book might gain in certainty, and those who believe might increase in faith -- and so that neither those who have been given the Scripture nor the believers might have any doubts, and that those sick at heart and those who deny the truth might ask, "What does God mean by this parable?" In this way, God lets go astray whom He wills, and guides whom He wills. And none knows the forces of your Lord but He. This is but a Reminder for man. (31)
