The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej)
44 verses, revealed in Mecca after Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah) before The News (Al-Naba')
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Someone has (needlessly) demanded to experience the torment (of God), (1) The infidels, of which there is no averter. (2) from punishing them. He is the Lord of the Ascending Stairways, (3) To Him the angels and the Spirit mount up, in a day whereof the measure is fifty thousand years. (4) So, (O Prophet), persevere with gracious perseverance. (5) They see the (Day) indeed as a far-off (event): (6) but We see it near at hand. (7) On that Day the heavens shall become like molten brass, (8) And the hills become as flakes of wool, (9) And no friend will ask concerning his friend. (10) Though they will be put in sight of each other,- the sinner's desire will be: Would that he could redeem himself from the Penalty of that Day by (sacrificing) his children, (11) his companion wife, his brother, (12) And his kin that sheltered him. (13) and of whoever [else] lives on earth, all of them - so that he could but save himself. (14) But nay! for lo! it is the fire of hell (15) tearing away his skin! (16) and drag into it anyone who has turned away (from obeying God), (17) and amassed (riches) and hoarded. (18) ۞ Verily, man (disbeliever) was created very impatient; (19) Very nervous when touched by misfortune. (20) And niggardly when good reaches him;- (21) except those that pray (22) Those who are constant in their prayer (23) And those within whose wealth is a known right (24) for the impoverished nonrequester and the requester, (25) And those who believe in the Day of Judgement, (26) and fear the chastisement of their Lord (27) Indeed the punishment of their Lord is not a thing to be unafraid of! (28) who guard their privates (29) Save with their wives and those whom their right hands possess, for thus they are not blameworthy; (30) But those who trespass beyond this are transgressors;- (31) and those who fulfil their trusts and their covenants, (32) and perform their witnessings, (33) and (finally) those who do not miss their ritual - prayers at the prescribed times; (34) These will dwell in Gardens, honoured. (35)
