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, most benevolent, ever-merciful
O YOU ENFOLDED in your mantle (of reform), (1) Arise and warn! (2) Glorify your Lord, (3) purify your garments; (4) And all defilement shun! (5) And bestow not favour that thou mayest receive more. (6) be patient unto your Lord. (7) Then when the horn shall be blown, (8) Truly, that Day will be a Hard Day. (9) For the disbelievers - not easy. (10) Leave Me with him whom I alone have created, (11) And give him vast riches, (12) and sons that stand in witness. (13) And for whom I smoothed everything. (14) After all that he desires that I should give more; (15) Never! For he is an enemy to Our signs! (16) I will make a distressing punishment overtake him. (17) Verily he considered, and devised. (18) and thus he destroys himself, the way he meditates: (19) yea, he destroys himself, the way he meditates! (20) Then he thought; (21) and then he frowns and glares, (22) Then turned his back and waxed proud, (23) and said, "This is nothing but sorcery from the ancients. (24) “This is nothing but the speech of a man.” (25) I will cast him into hell. (26) What could make you conceive what hell-fire is? (27) It leaves naught nor does it spare aught. (28) Blackening the skins. (29) Over it are nineteen (guards). (30) We have not appointed any one but angels as keepers of Hell, and their number that We have fixed is to make it a means of contention for disbelievers, so that those who were given the Book may be certain, and the faith of the believers may have greater increase, and the people of the Book and believers may not be deceived, and the sceptics and infidels may say: "What does God mean by this parable?" That is how God leads whosoever He will astray, and guides whosoever He will. None knows the armies of your Lord save Him self. This is no more than reminder for mankind. (31)
