The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej)
44 verses, revealed in Mecca after Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah) before The News (Al-Naba')
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
A questioner asked concerning a torment about to befall (1) The Unbelievers, the which there is none to ward off,- (2) [It is] from Allah, owner of the ways of ascent. (3) The angels and the Ruh [Jibrael (Gabriel)] ascend to Him in a Day the measure whereof is fifty thousand years, (4) Wherefore be thou patient with a becoming patience. (5) Verily they behold it afar off. (6) but, We see it as near! (7) The Day that the sky will be like molten brass, (8) The mountains like the tufts of (carded) wool, (9) And no friend will ask [anything of] a friend, (10) They will be shown each other. The criminal will wish that he could be ransomed from the punishment of that Day by his children (11) his companion wife, his brother, (12) And his family who had stood by him, (13) and all those on earth. (14) No! Indeed, it is the Flame [of Hell], (15) that will strip off the scalp. (16) and it will claim all those who turned their backs [on the true faith] and turned away [from the truth], (17) and amassed wealth and covetously hoarded it. (18) ۞ Indeed, man is born impatient: (19) when misfortune touches him he starts lamenting, (20) but when they are fortunate, they become niggardly (21) But not so the worshippers (22) Those who are regular in their prayers. (23) And those in whose wealth exists a recognised right, (24) For the (needy) who asks and him who is prevented (for some reason from asking); (25) who acknowledge the Day of Judgment, (26) And those who fear the punishment of their Lord, -- (27) for none may ever feel secure from the punishment of their Lord; (28) who guard their privates (29) Are free of blame, (30) And whosoever seeketh beyond that, then it is those who are the trespassers (31) And those who fulfil their trusts and covenants, (32) And those who are in their testimonies upright (33) And those who guard (the sacredness) of their worship;- (34) Such will be the honoured ones in the Gardens (of Bliss). (35)
