56 verses, revealed in Mecca after Unknown Person (Al-Muzzammil) before The Key (Al-Faatehah)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
O YOU ENFOLDED in your mantle (of reform), (1) arise and give warning! (2) and exalt your Lord, (3) Thy raiment purify, (4) And keep away from Ar-Rujz (the idols)! (5) do not bestow a favour in the expectation of receiving more in return; (6) Exercise patience to please your Lord. (7) When the Trumpet is sounded, (8) That Day will be a difficult day (9) It will not be easy for those who deny the truth. (10) Leave Me with him whom I created alone, (11) And to whom I granted extensive wealth (12) And sons dwelling in his presence, (13) And made (life) smooth for him. (14) Yet is he greedy-that I should add (yet more);- (15) Never. He is refractory of Our signs. (16) Soon will I visit him with a mount of calamities! (17) For he thought and he plotted -- (18) (Self-)destroyed is he, how he planned! (19) Let him be destroyed. How he calculated! (20) Then looked he, (21) Then frowned and grimaced. (22) and he turned his back and behaved arrogantly (23) Then said he: "This is nothing but magic, derived from of old; (24) This is not but the word of a human being." (25) I will soon fling him into hell. (26) and what will teach thee what is Sakar? (27) It neither spares, nor releases, (28) It scorches the mortal. (29) Over it are nineteen keepers. (30) We have not appointed the guards of hell, except angels; and did not keep this number except to test the disbelievers in order that the People given the Book(s) may be convinced, and to increase the faith of the believers and so that the People given the Book(s) and the Muslims may not have any doubt and so that those in whose hearts is a disease and the disbelievers, may say, “What does Allah mean by this amazing example?” This is how Allah sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills; and no one knows the armies of Allah except Him; and this is not but an advice to man. (31)
