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 Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
ONE who is minded to ask might ask about the suffering which [in the hereafter] is bound to befall (1) those who deny the truth. [Know, then, that] nothing can ward it off, (2) a chastisement from Allah, the Lord of the ascending steps, (3) To Him ascend the angels and the Spirit in a day the measure of which is fifty thousand years. (4) But be patient (O Muhammad) with a patience fair to see. (5) Verily they think that the chastisement is far off, (6) But We see it [as] near. (7) The day when the sky will be like molten silver. (8) And the hills will be light as wool. (9) And no familiar friend will ask a question of his friend (10) Though they shall be made to see one another [(i.e. on the Day of Resurrection), there will be none but see his father, children and relatives, but he will neither speak to them nor will ask them for any help)], - the Mujrim, (criminal, sinner, disbeliever, etc.) would desire to ransom himself from the punishment of that Day by his children. (11) and his spouse and his brother, (12) His kindred who sheltered him, (13) And all, all that is on earth,- so it could deliver him: (14) By no means! Verily, it will be the Fire of Hell! (15) Dragging by the head, (16) It shall claim him who turned and fled (from truth), (17) And collect (wealth) and hide it (from spending it in the Cause of Allah). (18) ۞ Surely man is greedy by nature. (19) When evil comes upon him he is impatient; (20) And refraining, when good reaches him. (21) Except the observers of prayer - (22) and continue at their prayers, (23) In whose wealth a due share is included (24) for the impoverished nonrequester and the requester, (25) those who firmly believe in the Day of Recompense, (26) and go in fear of the punishment of their Lord, (27) Lo! the doom of their Lord is that before which none can feel secure - (28) And those who preserve their chastity (29) Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they are not to be blamed - (30) So those who desire more than this it is they who are the transgressors. (31) And those who fulfil their trusts and covenants, (32) And those who are upright in their testimonies, (33) And those who [carefully] maintain their prayer: (34) They will be honoured in the Gardens of Bliss. (35)
