70:1  A questioner questioned concerning the doom about to fal
70:2  Upon the disbelievers, which none can repel
70:3  From Allah, Lord of the Ascending Stairway
70:4  (Whereby) the angels and the Spirit ascend unto Him in a Day whereof the span is fifty thousand years
70:5  But be patient (O Muhammad) with a patience fair to see
70:6  Lo! they behold it afar of
70:7  While we behold it nigh
70:8  The day when the sky will become as molten copper
70:9  And the hills become as flakes of wool
70:10  And no familiar friend will ask a question of his frien
70:11  Though they will be given sight of them. The guilty man will long to be able to ransom himself from the punishment of that day at the price of his childre
70:12  And his spouse and his brothe
70:13  And his kin that harboured hi
70:14  And all that are in the earth, if then it might deliver him
70:15  But nay! for lo! it is the fire of hel
70:16  Eager to roast
70:17  It calleth him who turned and fled (from truth)
70:18  And hoarded (wealth) and withheld it
70:19  Lo! man was created anxious
70:20  Fretful when evil befalleth hi
70:21  And, when good befalleth him, grudging
70:22  Save worshippers
70:23  Who are constant at their worshi
70:24  And in whose wealth there is a right acknowledge
70:25  For the beggar and the destitute
70:26  And those who believe in the Day of Judgment
70:27  And those who are fearful of their Lord's doom
70:28  Lo! the doom of their Lord is that before which none can feel secure
70:29  And those who preserve their chastit
70:30  Save with their wives and those whom their right hands possess, for thus they are not blameworthy
70:31  But whoso seeketh more than that, those are they who are transgressors
70:32  And those who keep their pledges and their covenant
70:33  And those who stand by their testimon
70:34  And those who are attentive at their worship
70:35  These will dwell in Gardens, honoured
70:36  What aileth those who disbelieve, that they keep staring toward thee (O Muhammad), open-eyed
70:37  On the right and on the left, in groups
70:38  Doth every man among them hope to enter the Garden of Delight
70:39  Nay, verily. Lo! We created them from what they know
70:40  But nay! I swear by the Lord of the rising-places and the setting-places of the planets that We verily are Abl
70:41  To replace them by (others) better than them. And we are not to be outrun
70:42  So let them chat and play until they meet their Day which they are promised
70:43  The day when they come forth from the graves in haste, as racing to a goal
70:44  With eyes aghast, abasement stupefying them: Such is the Day which they are promised
