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 requester seeks the punishment that will take place (1) Upon the disbelievers, which none can avert, (2) From Allah, the Lord of all pinnacles. (3) To Him the angels and the Spirit (Gabriel) ascend in a day, the measure of which is fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore endure with a goodly patience. (5) Lo! they behold it afar off (6) And We see it nigh. (7) The Day that the sky will be like the boiling filth of oil, (or molten copper or silver or lead, etc.). (8) and the mountains will become like tufts of wool, (9) And not a friend shall ask a 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) And his kindred who sheltered him, (13) and whosoever is in the earth, all together, so that then it might deliver him. (14) But nay! Verily, all [that awaits him] is a raging flame, (15) A fire that melts the hide. (16) It invites he who turned his back [on truth] and went away [from obedience] (17) and amassed wealth and covetously hoarded it. (18) ۞ Truly man was created very impatient;- (19) When evil toucheth him, he is bewailing. (20) And niggardly when good befalls him (21) Except the observers of prayer - (22) who are steadfast in prayer; (23) In whose wealth a due share is included (24) For those who beg, and for the needy who cannot even ask. (25) And those who believe the Day of Judgement to be true. (26) And those who fear the punishment of their Lord. (27) for none is secure from the punishment of their Lord, (28) And those who 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) but whoever goes beyond this is a transgressor; (31) And those who keep their pledges and their covenant, (32) And those who stand firm in their testimonies; (33) And those who [carefully] maintain their prayer: (34) Such shall dwell in the Gardens (i.e. Paradise) honoured. (35)
