The Study Quran rendition of Surah The Ascending Stairways, The Ladders(al-Ma`arij)
70:1 A questioner asked about an impending punishmen
70:2 upon the disbelievers which none can avert
70:3 from God, Lord of the ascending ways
70:4 Unto Him ascend the angels and the Spirit on a day whose measure is fifty thousand years
70:5 So be patient with beautiful patience
70:6 Truly they see it as far off
70:7 but We see it as nigh
70:8 On a day when the sky is as molten lead
70:9 and the mountains are as carded wool
70:10 and no loyal friend shall ask about a loyal friend
70:11 [though] they will be made to see them. The guilty would wish to ransom himself from the punishment of that Day at the price of his children
70:12 his spouse, and his brother
70:13 his kin who had sheltered him
70:14 and all who are on the earth, that it might save him
70:15 Nay, but it is a churning fire
70:16 ripping away the scalp
70:17 calling to those who turned their backs and fled
70:18 who amassed and hoarded
70:19 Truly man was created anxious
70:20 when evil befalls him, fretful
70:21 and when good befalls him, begrudging
70:22 save those who perform prayer
70:23 who are constant in their prayers
70:24 and in whose wealth is an acknowledged du
70:25 for the beggar and the deprived
70:26 those who affirm the Day of Judgment
70:27 and who are wary of the punishment of their Lord
70:28 truly there is no security from the punishment of their Lord
70:29 those who guard their private parts
70:30 save from their spouses or those whom their right hands possess, for then they are not blameworthy
70:31 but whosoever seeks beyond that, they are the transgressors
70:32 those who abide by their trusts and their pact
70:33 who uphold their testimony
70:34 and who are mindful of their prayers
70:35 those shall be in Gardens, honored
70:36 So how is it that those who disbelieve scramble toward the
70:37 from the right and from the left in droves
70:38 Does every man among them desire to be admitted into a Garden of bliss
70:39 Nay! Truly We created them from that which they know
70:40 So I swear by the Lord of the easts and the wests that We are abl
70:41 to replace [them] with what is better than them; and none outstrips Us
70:42 So leave them to indulge in idle talk and play until they meet the Day that they are promised
70:43 a day when they come forth from their graves, hastening as if racing to a goal
70:44 their eyes humbled, abasement shall overcome them. That is the Day they have been promised
