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 benevolent, ever-merciful
AN INQUIRER ASKED for the affliction that is to come (1) The Unbelievers, the which there is none to ward off,- (2) From Allah, Lord of the Ascending Stairways (3) Whereby the angels ascend unto Him and also the spirit, On a Day whereof the measure is fifty thousand years. (4) So be patient (O Muhammad SAW), with a good patience. (5) they see it as being far off; (6) But We see it (quite) near. (7) The day when the sky will become as molten copper, (8) and the mountains will be like tufts of wool, (9) And no friend will ask after a friend, (10) although they shall be within sight of one another. The guilty one would fain ransom himself from the torment of that Day by offering his children, (11) And his wife and his brother. (12) And his family who had stood by him, (13) and whosoever is in the earth, altogether, so that it might save him. (14) Nay, verily it is a furnace (15) that will strip off the scalp. (16) It calls out to him who reverted and turned away. (17) And masseth and then hoardeth. (18) ۞ VERILY, man is born with a restless disposition. (19) Irritable (discontented) when evil touches him; (20) And niggardly when good reaches him;- (21) except those that pray (22) Those who are constant at their prayer (23) And those in whose wealth there is a known right, (24) For those who beg, and for the needy who cannot even ask. (25) those who firmly believe in the Day of Recompense, (26) And those who fear the torment of their Lord, (27) Indeed, the punishment of their Lord is not that from which one is safe - (28) And those who guard their private parts (29) Save in regard to their spouses or those whom their right hands own; so verily they are not blameworthy (30) But those who seek more than this will be transgressors; (31) and who are faithful to their trusts and to their pledges: (32) And those who stand by their testimony (33) and (finally) those who do not miss their ritual - prayers at the prescribed times; (34) They will live in gardens with honour. (35)
