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 God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
O you who are clothed! (1) Arise, and warn, (2) And your Lord (Allah) magnify! (3) cleanse your clothes, (4) And keep away from Ar-Rujz (the idols)! (5) and do not think that by doing such deeds, you have done a great favor to God. (6) but unto thy Sustainer turn in patience. (7) For when the Trump is sounded (8) It will be a day of distress, (9) Far from easy for the disbelievers. (10) Leave Me (to deal) with him whom I created lonely, (11) and to whom I have granted resources vast, (12) and sons ever present with him, (13) and made all things smooth for him; (14) and who still desires more. (15) Never! For he is an enemy to Our signs! (16) Soon will I visit him with a mount of calamities! (17) He reflected and then hatched a scheme. (18) So let him be cursed! How he plotted! (19) Again accursed be he, how evilly did he decide! (20) He looked (at others); (21) then frowned and scowled; (22) then he retreated and grew proud (23) And said: This is naught else than magic from of old; (24) 'this is nothing but mortal speech.' (25) I shall make him suffer the torment of hell. (26) And what do you know what Hell is? (27) Naught doth it permit to endure, and naught doth it leave alone!- (28) it scorches (even) the skin. (29) Over it are nineteen (guards). (30) We have appointed only angels to be wardens of the Fire. We have specified their number only as a trial for those who are bent on denying the truth, so that those who were given the Book might gain in certainty, and those who believe might increase in faith -- and so that neither those who have been given the Scripture nor the believers might have any doubts, and that those sick at heart and those who deny the truth might ask, "What does God mean by this parable?" In this way, God lets go astray whom He wills, and guides whom He wills. And none knows the forces of your Lord but He. This is but a Reminder for man. (31)
