The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
56 verses, revealed in Mecca after Unknown Person (Al-Muzzammil) before The Key (Al-Faatehah)
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
O you who are clothed! (1) arise and give warning! (2) Thy Lord magnify (3) And thine raiment purify. (4) And banish all trepidation. (5) And do not favour others in order to receive more. (6) and persevere for your Lord's sake. (7) When the trumpet is sounded,. (8) that very Day shall be a day of anguish, (9) Not easy upon the disbelievers. (10) Leave Me alone with he whom I created (11) And then granted him resources in abundance. (12) and children living in his presence, (13) I made things smooth and easy for him, (14) And who yet coveteth that shall increase. (15) By no means! Verily he hath been unto Our signs a foe. (16) I shall oblige him to (climb a slippery mountain in the Hell-fire called As-Sa'ud, or to) face a severe torment! (17) For he thought and he plotted;- (18) May he be accursed, how he planned! (19) And once more let him be cursed, how he plotted! (20) Then he thought; (21) frowned and scowled; (22) and in the end he turns his back [on Our message,] and glories in his arrogance, (23) and said: “This (Qur'an) is merely a sorcery of yore; (24) This is naught but the word of a mortal. (25) Soon I will cast him into hell. (26) And what knoweth thou that which the Scorching Fire? (27) It leaves and spares no one and nothing. (28) It glows and burns the skin. (29) Above it are nineteen guards. (30) We have made only angels as the keepers of the fire (for they are the strongest in carrying out Our commands). Our informing (people) of the numbers of these angels is a trial for the disbelievers. It gives more certainty to the people of the Book and strengthens the faith of the believers. The people of the Book and the believers have no doubt about it. We have fixed the number to make the disbelievers and those whose hearts are sick say, "What does God mean by such a parable?" Thus, God guides and causes to go astray whomever He wants. No one knows about the army of your Lord except He Himself. This parable is a reminder for mankind. (31)
