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 YOU ENFOLDED in your mantle (of reform), (1) Arise and warn! (2) And thy Sustainer's greatness glorify! (3) Thy raiment purify, (4) And banish all trepidation. (5) And bestow not favour that thou mayest receive more. (6) And for the good-will of thy Lord be thou patient. (7) When the Trumpet shall be sounded, (8) it will be a hard day (9) Not easy upon the disbelievers. (10) Leave Me (to deal) with him whom I created lonely, (11) And to whom I granted extensive wealth (12) and sons standing before him, (13) And I adjusted affairs for him adjustably; (14) Yet he desireth that I should give more. (15) Never! For he is an enemy to Our signs! (16) Anon I shall afflict him with a fearful woe. (17) Surely he reflected and guessed, (18) But may he be cursed how he plotted; (19) Let him be destroyed. How he calculated! (20) Then he looked around, (21) then he frowned, and 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 mortal speech.' (25) Him shall I fling unto the burning. (26) And what knoweth thou that which the Scorching Fire? (27) It leaves and spares no one and nothing. (28) Blackening the skins. (29) Above it are nineteen guards. (30) We have appointed only angels to be wardens of the Fire, and their number have We made to be a stumbling-block for those who disbelieve; that those to whom the Scripture hath been given may have certainty, and that believers may increase in faith; and that those to whom the Scripture hath been given and believers may not doubt; and that those in whose hearts there is disease, and disbelievers, may say: What meaneth Allah by this similitude? Thus Allah sendeth astray whom He will, and whom He will He guideth. None knoweth the hosts of thy Lord save Him. This is naught else than a Reminder unto mortals. (31)
