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 Compassionate, the Merciful
O you enveloped in your cloak! (1) Rise up and warn! (2) And thy Lord do thou magnify! (3) Thy raiment purify, (4) and flee from the statues! (5) do not bestow a favour in the expectation of receiving more in return; (6) But, for thy Lord's (Cause), be patient and constant! (7) Finally, when the Trumpet is sounded, (8) that very Day shall be a day of anguish, (9) It will not be easy for those who deny the truth. (10) Leave Me (to deal) with him whom I created lonely, (11) And to whom I granted extensive wealth (12) And children to be by his side! (13) And made (life) smooth for him. (14) Then he desires that I should add more. (15) By no means! For to Our Signs he has been refractory! (16) I shall inflict on him hardship, (17) Verily he considered, and devised. (18) May he be condemned! (19) Again, death seized him, how was his determining! (20) Then he looked, (21) frowned and scowled, (22) Then he turned back and was proud; (23) Then said he: "This is nothing but magic, derived from of old; (24) "This is nothing but the word of a human being!" (25) I will soon fling him into hell. (26) Would that you really knew what hell is! (27) It neither spares, nor releases, (28) It scorches the mortal. (29) Over it are nineteen (angels as guardians and keepers of Hell). (30) And We have appointed none but the angels to be wardens of the Fire. And their number we have made only a trial for those who disbelieve, so that those who are vouchsafed the Book may be convinced, and that those who believe may increase in faith, and that those who are vouchsafed the Book and the believers may not doubt, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the infidels may say: what meaneth Allah by this description! In this wise Allah sendeth astray whomsoever He will, and guideth whomsoever He will. And none knoweth the hosts of thy Lord but He. And it is naught but an admonition unto man. (31)
