The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej)
44 verses, revealed in Mecca after Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah) before The News (Al-Naba')
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Someone has (needlessly) demanded to experience the torment (of God), (1) The Unbelievers, the which there is none to ward off,- (2) From Allah, the Lord 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) Therefore, [O believers] behave with seemly patience. (5) behold, men look upon that [reckoning] as something far away (6) but, We see it as near! (7) On the Day the sky will be like murky oil, (8) and the mountains will become like tufts of wool, (9) And no friend inquires after friend (10) as they are given sight of them. The sinner will wish that he might ransom himself from the chastisement of that day even by his sons, (11) his companion wife, his brother, (12) And his kindred who sheltered him, (13) and all persons of the earth, if only he could thus save himself. (14) Never! That is indeed a blazing fire. (15) stripping away his skin, (16) Inviting (all) such as turn their backs and turn away their faces (from the Right). (17) And hoarded (wealth) and withheld it. (18) ۞ Verily man is impatient by nature: (19) bewailing when evil befalls him, (20) And niggardly when good reaches him;- (21) Save worshippers. (22) who are steadfast in prayer; (23) And those in whose wealth there is a fixed portion. (24) for the needy and the deprived, (25) who acknowledge the Day of Judgment, (26) And those who fear the punishment of their Lord, -- (27) surely the chastisement of their Lord is a thing none can feel secure from (28) who guard their privates (29) save from their wives and what their right hands own, then not being blameworthy (30) But whosoever seeks beyond that, then it is those who are trespassers. (31) who honor their trust and promises, (32) And those who are upright in their testimonies, (33) And those who are attentive at their worship. (34) It is these who will be honoured in Gardens. (35)
