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 shrouded in thy mantle, (1) Arise and warn (2) and magnify the glory of your Lord, (3) purify your garments; (4) And uncleanliness avoid (5) Do not give, thinking to gain greater (6) For the sake of thy Lord, be patient! (7) Then, when the Trumpet is sounded (i.e. its second blowing); (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 with him whom I alone have created, (11) To whom I granted resources in abundance, (12) and sons that stand in witness. (13) whose life I have made run smoothly (14) Yet he desires that I should give more. (15) By no means; he is stubbornly opposed to Our Signs. (16) [and so] I shall constrain him to endure a painful uphill climb! (17) Verily he considered, and devised. (18) death seized him, how was his determining! (19) Then may he be destroyed [for] how he deliberated. (20) Then he looked around, (21) Then he frowned and he scowled; (22) then turned back, and swelling-up with pride, (23) Then he said: "This is nothing but magic from that of old; (24) "This is nothing but the word of a human being!" (25) I will cast him into the fire of Hell. (26) And what will explain to thee what Hell-Fire is? (27) It shall not spare, nor leave. (28) Blackening the skins. (29) Over 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)
