The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej)
44 verses, revealed in Mecca after Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah) before The News (Al-Naba')
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
There hath asked an asker for the torment about to befall. (1) The unbelievers-- there is none to avert it-- (2) From Allah, Lord of the Ascending Stairways (3) The angels and the Spirit will ascend to Him during a Day the extent of which is fifty thousand years. (4) But be patient (O Muhammad) with a patience fair to see. (5) they see it as being far off; (6) but We see it near. (7) [It will take place] on a Day when the sky will be like molten lead, (8) And the mountains will be like wool, (9) And friend shall not ask of 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) his companion (wife), his brother, (12) And his kindred who sheltered him, (13) and all those on earth. (14) By no means! Surely it is a flaming fire (15) snatching away the scalp, (16) It will summon whoever turns his back and flees, (17) who amassed and hoarded. (18) ۞ Surely man was created fretful, (19) Irritable (discontented) when evil touches him; (20) when good visits him, grudging, (21) except those that pray (22) and are constant in their Prayer; (23) And those in whose wealth exists a recognised right, (24) For him who begs and for him who is denied (good) (25) and those who believe in the Day of Judgement (26) And those who are fearful of the chastisement of their Lord-- (27) Indeed, the punishment of their Lord is not that from which one is safe - (28) and guard their private parts (29) except in regard to their spouses and those whom their right hands possess, for in regard to them they are not reproachable, (30) whereas such as seek to go beyond that [limit] are truly transgressors; (31) and who preserve their trusts and their covenant, (32) and those who are upright in their testimonies; (33) And those who protect their prayers. (34) Those shall be in Gardens, high-honoured. (35)
