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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
A questioner asked of a chastisement about to fall (1) Upon the disbelievers, which none can avert, (2) a chastisement from Allah, the Lord of the ascending steps, (3) On that Day (of Judgment), long as fifty thousand years, the angels and the Spirit will ascend to Him. (4) So be thou patient with a sweet patience; (5) They see the (Day) indeed as a far-off (event): (6) And We see it nigh. (7) It shall befall on a Day whereon the heaven shall become like unto dregs of oil. (8) and the mountains will be like tufts of wool, (9) And not a friend shall ask a friend, (10) Though they will be given sight of them. The guilty man will long to be able to ransom himself from the punishment of that day at the price of his children (11) 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) But no! There is a raging blaze (15) tearing away his skin! (16) It shall call him who turneth back and backslideth. (17) and who accumulated wealth without spending it for a good purpose. (18) ۞ Verily man is formed impatient. (19) bewailing when evil befalls him, (20) and tight-fisted when good fortune visits him, (21) Except those who pray, (22) Those who are regular in their prayers. (23) and in whose possessions there is a due share, acknowledged [by them,] (24) for such as ask [for help] and such as are deprived [of what is good in life]; (25) who confirm the Day of Doom (26) And those who fear the punishment 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) except from their wives and slave girls, in which case they are not to be blamed, (30) But whosoever seeks beyond that, then it is those who are trespassers. (31) And those who are faithful to their trusts and their covenant (32) And those who stand firm in their testimonies; (33) and who take due care of their Prayer: (34) Those are highly honored in the Gardens. (35)
