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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
O thou wrapped up (in the mantle)! 1 Arise, and warn. 2 And your Lord do magnify, 3 And thine inner self purify! 4 Pollution shun! 5 And bestow not favors that you may receive again with increase, 6 For the sake of thy Lord, be patient! 7 Then when the horn shall be blown, 8 that day will be a harsh day, 9 It will not be easy for those who deny the truth. 10 Leave Me (to deal) with him whom I created lonely, 11 And give him vast riches, 12 and children living in his presence, 13 And made several preparations for him. 14 yet he is eager that I increase him. 15 By no means! For to Our Signs he has been refractory! 16 We shall make him suffer the torment of hell without relief. 17 He reflected, and then determined 18 May he be accursed, how he planned! 19 And again perish he! How maliciously he devised! 20 Then he looked round; 21 Then he frowned and scowled; 22 Then he turned back and was big with pride, 23 and said, "This is nothing but sorcery from the ancients. 24 this is nothing but the word of a mere mortal!” 25 I will cast him into hell. 26 And what could make thee conceive what hell-fire is? 27 It neither leaves, nor spares. 28 it scorches (even) the skin. 29 Over it are nineteen [powers]. 30 And We have not made the keepers of the Fire except angels. And We have not made their number except as a trial for those who disbelieve - that those who were given the Scripture will be convinced and those who have believed will increase in faith and those who were given the Scripture and the believers will not doubt and that those in whose hearts is hypocrisy and the disbelievers will say, "What does Allah intend by this as an example?" Thus does Allah leave astray whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And none knows the soldiers of your Lord except Him. And mention of the Fire is not but a reminder to humanity. 31
