70:1  A questioner asked of a befalling torment
70:2  For the disbelievers, for which there is no repelling
70:3  From Allah, The Owner of the Stairways
70:4  To Him the Angels and the Spirit ascend with difficulty to Him in a Day whereof the determined (length) is fifty thousand years
70:5  So (endure) patiently with a becoming patience
70:6  Surely they see it far off
70:7  And We see it near
70:8  On the Day when the heaven will be as molten metal
70:9  And the mountains will be as wool-tufts
70:10  And no intimate (friend) will ask (another) intimate friend
70:11  (As) they are made to behold them (i.e., each other). The criminal would like that he might ransom himself of the torment upon that Day (even) by his seeds
70:12  And his female companion and his brother
70:13  And the nearest of his kin who gave him abode
70:14  And whoever is in the earth all together, so that thereafter it might deliver him
70:15  Not at all! Surely it is a fierce Blaze
70:16  Constantly plucking forth the scalps
70:17  Calling him who withdrew and turned away
70:18  And (who) gathered (riches); (so he) prudently kept them
70:19  Surely man was created most fretful
70:20  When evil touches him, (he is) most impatient
70:21  And when charity touches him, (he is) a constant preventer of it
70:22  Except the ones who are (constantly) praying
70:23  They are the ones who are permanently preserving their prayers
70:24  And (they) are the ones in whose riches is a truthful (duty) known
70:25  For the beggar and the dispossessed
70:26  And the ones who sincerely (believe) in the Day of Doom
70:27  And they are the ones who are timorous of the torment of their Lord
70:28  Surely the torment of their Lord (leaves) none secure (Literally: other than to be secure)
70:29  And they are the ones who preserve their private parts
70:30  Except with their spouses or what their right hands possess; then surely they are not blameworthy (Literally: other than being blameworthy)
70:31  Yet, whoever inequitably seeks (anything) beyond that, then those are the ones who are the aggressors
70:32  And they (The thought continues from verse 29) are the ones who pay heed (i.e., rightly observe) to their deposits and their covenant
70:33  And they are the ones who keep up their testimonies
70:34  And they are the ones who (strictly) preserve their prayer
70:35  Those will be in Gardens, high-honored
70:36  So, for what (reason) are the ones who have disbelieved (hurrying with heads) protruding, facing you
70:37  On the right and on the left in sundry batches
70:38  Does every person of them long to be made to enter a Garden of Bliss
70:39  Not at all! Surely We created them of what they know
70:40  Yet no, I swear by The Lord of the easts and the wests; surely We are indeed (the) Determiners
70:41  To exchange a more charitable (i.e., better) (people) instead of them, and in no way will We ever be outstripped
70:42  So leave them out to wade (Or: be engrossed "in vain talk") and play until they meet the Day of theirs which they are promised
70:43  The Day they will go out of the graves swiftly, as if they were rushing to a standard
70:44  Submissive will be their be holdings (i.e., gazes).They will be oppressed by humbleness. That is the Day which they were promised
