Sher Ali rendition of Surah The Ascending Stairways, The Ladders(al-Ma`arij)
---
70:1 An inquirer inquires concerning the punishment about to befall
70:2 The disbelievers, and which none can repel.
70:3 It is from ALLAH, Lord of great ascents.
70:4 The angels and the Spirit ascend to HIM in a day, the measure of which is fifty thousand years.
70:5 So be patient with admirable patience.
70:6 They see it to be far off,
70:7 But WE see it to be nigh.
70:8 The day when the heaven will become like molten copper,
70:9 And the mountains will become like flakes of wool,
70:10 And a friend will not inquire after a friend,
70:11 Though they will be placed in sight of one another. The guilty one would fain ransom himself from the punishment of that day by offering his children,
70:12 And his wife and his brother,
70:13 And his kinsfolk who gave him shelter,
70:14 And by offering all those who are on the earth, if only thus he might save himself.
70:15 But no ! surely, it is a flame of Fire,
70:16 Stripping off the skin even to the extremities of the body.
70:17 It shall call him who turned his back and retreated,
70:18 And hoarded wealth and withheld it.
70:19 Verily, man is created impatient and miserly.
70:20 When evil touches him, he is full of lamentations,
70:21 But when good falls to his lot, he is niggardly,
70:22 Except those who pray,
70:23 Those who are constant in their Prayer;
70:24 And those in whose wealth there is a known right -
70:25 For those who ask for help and for those who do not ask -
70:26 And those who believe in the Day of Judgment to be a reality;
70:27 And those who are fearful of the punishment of their Lord -
70:28 Verily, from the punishment of their Lord none can feel secure -
70:29 And those who guard their private parts -
70:30 Except from their wives and from those whom their right hands possess; such indeed, are not to blame;
70:31 But those who seek to go beyond that, it is these who are transgressors -
70:32 And those who are watchful of their trusts and their covenants;
70:33 And those who are upright in their testimonies.
70:34 And those who are strict in the observance of their Prayer.
70:35 These will be in the Gardens, duly honoured.
70:36 But what is the matter with those who disbelieve that they come hurrying on towards thee,
70:37 From the right hand and from the left, in different parties?
70:38 Does every man among them hope to enter the Garden of Bliss?
70:39 Never ! WE have created them of that which they know.
70:40 But nay ! I swear by the Lord of the Easts and of the Wests that WE have the power
70:41 To bring in their place others better than they, and WE cannot be frustrated in Our plans.
70:42 So leave them alone to indulge in idle talk and to sport until they meet that day of theirs which they are promised,
70:43 The day when they will come forth from their graves hastening as though they were racing to a target,
70:44 Their eyes cast down; and humiliation covering them. Such is the Day which they are promised.
