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 Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
A questioner asked about a Penalty to befall- (1) Upon the disbelievers the punishment that none can avert. (2) (A Penalty) from Allah, Lord of the Ways of Ascent. (3) The angels and the Spirit will ascend to Him during a Day the extent of which is fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore be patient, with a beautiful patience; (5) Verily they think that the chastisement is far off, (6) While we behold it nigh: (7) Upon the day when heaven shall be as molten copper (8) and the mountains shall be as plucked wool-tufts, (9) And friend shall not ask of 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 wife and his brother, (12) And the nearest of his kinsfolk who gave him shelter, (13) and all persons of the earth, if only he could thus save himself. (14) But nay! Verily, all [that awaits him] is a raging flame, (15) That would skin the scalp. (16) It shall claim him who turned and fled (from truth), (17) And collected [wealth] and hoarded. (18) ۞ Truly man was created very impatient;- (19) Being greatly grieved when evil afflicts him (20) and tight-fisted when good fortune visits him, (21) Save worshippers. (22) Who are at their prayer constant. (23) And those in whose wealth there is a known right, (24) for the needy and the deprived, (25) And those who believe in the Day of Judgment, (26) And those who fear the torment of their Lord, (27) the punishment of their Lord is not something for them to feel secure of, (28) And those who guard their private parts (29) Are free of blame, (30) but whoever goes beyond this is a transgressor; (31) and who preserve their trusts and their covenant, (32) and perform their witnessings, (33) And those who [carefully] maintain their prayer: (34) Such shall dwell in the Gardens (i.e. Paradise) honoured. (35)
