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, wrapped in your cloak, (1) Arise and warn! (2) and magnify the glory of your Lord, (3) And keep your clothes clean. (4) and shun uncleanness, (5) And do not through giving seek thyself to gain, (6) and for the sake of your Lord, be patient. (7) For when the trumpet blows (8) it will be a hard day (9) not an easy day for the unbelievers. (10) Leave him to Me whom I created alone, (11) And to whom I granted extensive wealth (12) and children as [love's] witnesses, (13) And for whom I smoothed everything. (14) then he is eager that I should do more. (15) No! Indeed, he has been toward Our verses obstinate. (16) I shall force him to endure a painful uphill climb! (17) He planned and plotted. (18) Perish he! How maliciously he devised! (19) What an evil plan he has made! (20) Then he looked, (21) And frowned and puckered his brow, (22) then he retreated, and waxed proud. (23) Then he said: "This is nothing but magic from that of old; (24) this is nothing but the word of a mere mortal!” (25) Soon I will cast him into hell. (26) - Ah, what will convey unto thee what that burning 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. (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)
