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
There hath asked an asker for the torment about to befall. (1) To the disbelievers; of it there is no preventer. (2) from punishing them. He is the Lord of the Ascending Stairways, (3) To Him ascend the angels and the Spirit in a day the measure of which is fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore, [O believer,] endure all adversity with goodly patience: (5) Lo! they behold it afar off (6) but We see it near at hand. (7) The day the sky becomes like molten brass, (8) And the hills will be light as wool. (9) And no familiar friend will ask a question of his friend (10) They will be seeing them; the guilty will wish if only he could redeem himself from the punishment of that day, by offering his sons. (11) his wife, his brother, (12) his kinsmen who gave him refuge (from hardship) (13) and of whoever [else] lives on earth, all of them - so that he could but save himself. (14) Never! That is indeed a blazing fire. (15) will strip-off the flesh (16) Inviting (all) such as turn their backs and turn away their faces (from the Right). (17) And hoarded (wealth) and withheld it. (18) ۞ Lo! man was created anxious, (19) When they are afflicted, they complain, (20) If good comes to him he holds back his hand, (21) Not so are the prayerful. (22) Those who are constant at their prayer (23) In whose wealth a due share is included (24) for the beggar and the outcast, (25) And those who accept the truth of the judgment day (26) who are afraid of the torment of their Lord, (27) For their Lord's displeasure is the opposite of Peace and Tranquillity;- (28) those who preserve their chastity (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 whoso seeketh more than that, those are they who are transgressors; (31) And those who fulfil their trusts and covenants, (32) And those who stand firm in their testimonies; (33) And those who guard their Salat (prayers) well. (34) They will be honoured in the Gardens of Bliss. (35)
