# 74 The Cloaked One (Al-Muddathir) Explanation of # 74 The Cloaked One (Al-Muddathir)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

[74.1] O thou enveloped in thy cloak,
[74.2] Arise and warn!
[74.3] Thy Lord magnify,
[74.4] Thy raiment purify,
[74.5] Pollution shun!
[74.6] And show not favour, seeking wordly gain!
[74.7] For the sake of thy Lord, be patient!
[74.8] For when the trumpet shall sound,
[74.9] Surely that day will be a day of anguish,
[74.10] Not of ease, for disbelievers.
[74.11] Leave Me (to deal) with him whom I created lonely,
[74.12] And then bestowed upon him ample means,
[74.13] And sons abiding in his presence
[74.14] And made (life) smooth for him.
[74.15] Yet he desireth that I should give more.
[74.16] Nay! For lo! he hath been stubborn to Our revelations.
[74.17] On him I shall impose a fearful doom.
[74.18] For lo! he did consider; then he planned -
[74.19] (Self-)destroyed is he, how he planned!
[74.20] Again (self-)destroyed is he, how he planned! -
[74.21] Then looked he,
[74.22] Then frowned he and showed displeasure.
[74.23] Then turned he away in pride
[74.24] And said: This is naught else than magic from of old;
[74.25] This is naught else than speech of mortal man.
[74.26] Him shall I fling unto the burning.
[74.27] - Ah, what will convey unto thee what that burning is! -
[74.28] It leaveth naught; it spareth naught
[74.29] It shrivelleth the man.
[74.30] Above it are nineteen.
[74.31] We have appointed only angels to be wardens of the Fire, and their number have We made to be a stumbling-block for those who disbelieve; that those to whom the Scripture hath been given may have certainty, and that believers may increase in faith; and that those to whom the Scripture hath been given and believers may not doubt; and that those in whose hearts there is disease, and disbelievers, may say: What meaneth Allah by this similitude ? Thus Allah sendeth astray whom He will, and whom He will He guideth. None knoweth the hosts of thy Lord save Him. This is naught else than a Reminder unto mortals.
[74.32] Nay, by the Moon
[74.33] And the night when it withdraweth
[74.34] And the dawn when it shineth forth,
[74.35] Lo! this is one of the greatest (portents)
[74.36] As a warning unto men,
[74.37] Unto him of you who will advance or hang back.
[74.38] Every soul is a pledge for its own deeds;
[74.39] Save those who will stand on the right hand.
[74.40] In gardens they will ask one another
[74.41] Concerning the guilty:
[74.42] What hath brought you to this burning ?
[74.43] They will answer: We were not of those who prayed
[74.44] Nor did we feed the wretched.
[74.45] We used to wade (in vain dispute) with (all) waders,
[74.46] And we used to deny the Day of Judgment,
[74.47] Till the Inevitable came unto us.
[74.48] The mediation of no mediators will avail them then.
[74.49] Why now turn they away from the Admonishment,
[74.50] As they were frightened asses
[74.51] Fleeing from a lion ?
[74.52] Nay, but everyone of them desireth that he should be given open pages (from Allah).
[74.53] Nay, verily. They fear not the Hereafter.
[74.54] Nay, verily. Lo! this is an Admonishment.
[74.55] So whosoever will may heed.
[74.56] And they will not heed unless Allah willeth (it). He is the fount of fear. He is the fount of Mercy.
