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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
A requester seeks the punishment that will take place (1) those who deny the truth. [Know, then, that] nothing can ward it off, (2) From Allah, Lord of the Ascending Stairways (3) To Him the angels and the Spirit (Gabriel) ascend in a day, the measure of which is fifty thousand years. (4) So be patient (O Muhammad SAW), with a good patience. (5) They think that it (the Day of Judgment) is far away. (6) but We see it is nigh. (7) The Day that the sky will be like molten brass, (8) And the mountains will be like flakes of wool, (9) And no friend will ask of a friend, (10) though they may be in one another's sight: [for,] everyone who was lost in sin will on that Day but desire to ransom himself from suffering at the price of his own children, (11) and his spouse and his brother, (12) and his kinsfolk who gave him shelter, (13) and of whoever [else] lives on earth, all of them - so that he could but save himself. (14) No, in truth, it is a Furnace! (15) That would skin the scalp. (16) Inviting (all) such as turn their backs and turn away their faces (from the Right). (17) and amass [wealth] and thereupon withhold [it from their fellow-men]. (18) ۞ Indeed, man is born impatient: (19) Irritable (discontented) when evil touches him; (20) And niggardly when good touches him; (21) But not so the worshippers (22) Those who are regular in their prayers. (23) those in whose wealth is a right known (24) for the needy and the deprived, (25) And those who believe in the Day of Recompense, (26) And those who are fearful of the punishment of their Lord - (27) Surely no one can be secure from the punishment of his Lord, -- (28) who guard their privates (29) Except with their wives and the (women slaves and captives) whom their right hands possess, for (then) they are not to be blamed, (30) but whoever goes beyond this is a transgressor; (31) And those who respect their trusts and covenants; (32) And those who are in their testimonies upright (33) and who guard their prayers [from all worldly intent]. (34) They will be in gardens, honored. (35)
