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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
O you enveloped in your cloak! (1) Arise and warn! (2) Glorify your Lord, (3) Thy raiment purify, (4) And keep away from Ar-Rujz (the idols)! (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 is sounded, (8) So that is a tough day. (9) and for the disbelievers, in particular, it will not be at all easy. (10) Leave Me alone with he whom I created (11) and designated for him ample wealth, (12) and children as [love's] witnesses, (13) I made things smooth and easy for him, (14) Yet he desires that I should give more. (15) Never will he receive more. He has been hostile to Our revelations. (16) and I shall constrain him to a hard ascent. (17) For he thought and he plotted -- (18) and thus he destroys himself, the way he meditates: (19) Again (self-)destroyed is he, how he planned! - (20) He looked (at others); (21) Then frowned and grimaced. (22) Then turned he away in pride (23) He said, 'This is naught but a trumped-up sorcery; (24) this is nothing but the word of a mere mortal!” (25) Soon I will cast him into hell. (26) And what will explain to thee what Hell-Fire is? (27) It does not allow to live, and neither leaves [to die,] (28) making [all truth] visible to mortal man. (29) Over it are nineteen keepers. (30) We have appointed none but angels to guard the Fire, and made their number only as a trial for the unbelievers, so that those to whom the Book was given are certain and those who believe increase in belief. And that those who were given the Book, and those who believe will not be in doubt. And that those in whose hearts there is a sickness, together with the unbelievers, may say: 'What did Allah intend by this as an example' As such, Allah leaves in error whom He will and He guides whomsoever He will. None knows the hosts of your Lord except He. This is no more than a Reminder to humans. (31)
