Muhammad Taqi Usmani rendition of Surah The Ascending Stairways, The Ladders(al-Ma`arij)
70:1 A demanding person has asked for the punishment that is going to befal
70:2 the disbelievers; there is no one to avert it
70:3 (and it will come) from Allah, the Lord of the stairways
70:4 to whom ascend the angels and the Spirit in a day the length of which is fifty thousand years
70:5 So, observe patience, a good patience
70:6 They see it far off
70:7 and We see it near
70:8 (This punishment will befall) on the Day when the sky will be like dregs of oil
70:9 and the mountains will be like dyed wool
70:10 and no friend will ask about any friend
70:11 (though) they will be made to see each other. A guilty person will desire that he may be able to ransom himself from the torment of that day even by his sons
70:12 and his wife and his brother
70:13 and his kindred that sheltered him
70:14 and all those on earth, then he may redeem himself
70:15 By no means! It is the flaming fir
70:16 that will pull out the skin of the scalp
70:17 It will call him who had turned his back and fled away (from the truth
70:18 and accumulated (wealth) and hoarded (it)
70:19 Indeed man is created weak in courage
70:20 very upset when touched by evil
70:21 and very niggard when visited by good (fortune)
70:22 except the performers of Salah
70:23 who are regular in their Salah
70:24 and those in whose riches there is a specified righ
70:25 for the one who asks and the one who is deprived
70:26 and those who believe in the Day of Judgment as true
70:27 and those who are fearful of the torment of their Lord_
70:28 __Indeed the torment of their Lord is not something to be fearless from._
70:29 and those who guard their private parts
70:30 except from their wives and those (slave-girls) owned by their hands,__ because they are not to be blamed
70:31 but the one who seeks (sexual gratification) beyond that, then such people are the transgressors,_
70:32 and those who are careful about their trusts and covenants
70:33 and those who are upright in their testimonies
70:34 and those who take due care of their Salah
70:35 Those will be honoured in gardens (of Jannah )
70:36 So what has happened to those who disbelieve that they are rushing towards yo
70:37 from the right and from the left, in groups
70:38 Does every one of them aspire to be admitted to the garden of bliss
70:39 By no means! We have created them from what they know
70:40 So, I swear by the Lord of the points of sunrise and those of sunset, We are powerfu
70:41 to bring those better than them in their place, and We are not to be frustrated
70:42 So, leave them involved in pastime and play until they encounter their Day, which they are promised
70:43 the Day they will come out of the graves quickly, as if they were rushing toward idols
70:44 with their eyes downcast, enveloped by ignominy. That is the Day, which they were being promised
