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 THOU [in thy solitude] enfolded! (1) Arise, and warn. (2) And your Lord do magnify, (3) and purify your robes, (4) And banish all trepidation. (5) And give not a thing in order to have more (or consider not your deeds of Allah's obedience as a favour to Allah). (6) be patient unto your Lord. (7) Finally, when the Trumpet is sounded, (8) that Day will be a hard and distressing Day. (9) For the disbelievers - not easy. (10) Leave Me alone with he whom I created (11) And then bestowed upon him ample means, (12) And children present [with him] (13) And made several preparations for him. (14) Yet he desireth that I should give more. (15) Never. He is refractory of Our signs. (16) Soon will I visit him with a mount of calamities! (17) He planned and plotted. (18) Perish he! How maliciously he devised! (19) Then may he be destroyed [for] how he deliberated. (20) He then dared to lift his gaze. (21) Then he frowned and he looked in a bad tempered way; (22) then he retreated and waxed proud, (23) and says, "All this is mere spellbinding eloquence handed down [from olden times]! (24) “This is nothing but the speech of a man.” (25) I will surely roast him in the Scorching. (26) And what do you know what Hell is? (27) It does not allow to live, and neither leaves [to die,] (28) it scorches the skin; (29) Above it are nineteen. (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)
