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 Compassionate, the Merciful
A beseecher besought the visitation of chastisement, (1) Upon the disbelievers the punishment that none can avert. (2) (A punishment) from Allah, the Owner of the Elevated Passages. (3) To Him ascend the angels and the Spirit in a day the measure of which is fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore endure with a goodly patience. (5) Indeed, they see it [as] distant, (6) And We see it nigh. (7) The day when the sky will become as molten copper, (8) And the mountains will be like wool, (9) and no friend will ask about his friend, (10) though they may see each other. A sinner will wish that he could save himself from the torment of that day by sacrificing his children, (11) his wife, his brother, (12) his kinsmen who gave him refuge (from hardship) (13) and all the people of the earth, if that could deliver him. (14) Nay, verily it is a furnace (15) that will strip off the scalp. (16) It shall claim him who turned and fled (from truth), (17) And collect (wealth) and hide it (from use)! (18) ۞ Surely man is greedy by nature. (19) when evil visits him, impatient, (20) And niggardly when good reaches him;- (21) except those that pray (22) Who persevere in devotion, (23) In whose wealth a due share is included (24) for those that ask and those that are dispossessed, (25) who confirm the Day of Reckoning (26) and are fearful of the punishment of their Lord; (27) for none may ever feel secure from the punishment of their Lord; (28) 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 are to their trusts and promises attentive (32) And those who stand firm in their testimonies; (33) and who take due care of their Prayer: (34) Those shall dwell in Gardens, honoured. (35)
