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 the Cloaked One! (Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him) (1) Arise and warn (2) Glorify your Lord, (3) And thy garments keep free from stain! (4) And all abomination shun! (5) do not bestow a favour in the expectation of receiving more in return; (6) For the sake of thy Lord, be patient! (7) And [warn all men that] when the trumpet-call [of resurrection] is sounded, (8) That will be- that Day - a Day of Distress,- (9) not an easy day for the unbelievers. (10) Let Me alone with him whom I created lonely. (11) And to whom I granted extensive wealth (12) And sons to be by his side!- (13) and whom I have provided with every resource, (14) then he is eager that I should do more. (15) By no means! For to Our Signs he has been refractory! (16) I shall force him to endure a painful uphill climb! (17) Verily, he thought and plotted; (18) May he be accursed, how he planned! (19) What an evil plan he has made! (20) Then looked he, (21) then 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 the word of a human being!" (25) Soon will I cast him into Hell-Fire! (26) - Ah, what will convey unto thee what that burning is! - (27) It shall not spare, nor leave. (28) It strips away the hide of man. (29) Over it are nineteen. (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)
