70:1  A questioner asked you about the punishment which is bound to happen
70:2  It is for the disbelievers and there is none to avert it
70:3  It will come from Allah, the Owner of the Ways of Ascent
70:4  The angels and the Spirit ascend to Him in a Day the measure of which is fifty thousand years
70:5  Therefore, endure with graceful patience
70:6  They see it (Day of Judgment) to be far-off
70:7  but We see it quite near
70:8  On that Day, the sky shall become like molten bras
70:9  and the mountains like tufts of wool
70:10  even a close friend will not ask of his friend
70:11  though they will see each other. To save himself from the punishment of that Day, the culprit (disbeliever) will wish to give his children
70:12  his wife, his brother
70:13  his relatives who gave him shelter
70:14  and all that is in the earth, in ransom to save himself
70:15  By no means! It will be the fire of hell
70:16  eager to pluck out his skull
70:17  it will be calling all those who try to escape and turn their back
70:18  who collected wealth and withheld it
70:19  Indeed, man has been created impatient
70:20  when evil befalls him, he becomes despondent
70:21  but when blessed with good fortune, he becomes stingy
70:22  with the exception of those who offer the Salah (prayer)
70:23  remain steadfast in their Salah (prayer)
70:24  set aside a due share in their wealt
70:25  for the beggars and the deprived
70:26  accept the truth of the Day of Judgment
70:27  dread the punishment of their Lor
70:28  - for none is secure from the punishment of their Lord
70:29  and guard their private parts
70:30  except from their wives and those whom their right hands possess, for in their case they are not blameworthy
70:31  As for those who seek to go beyond this, they are transgressors
70:32  Those who keep their trusts and honor their promises
70:33  who stand firm in their testimonie
70:34  and strictly guard their Salah (prayers)
70:35  It is they who shall live with honor in paradise
70:36  What is the matter with the disbelievers that they are rushing towards you
70:37  from the right and from the left, in groups
70:38  Are they each seeking to enter the garden of bliss
70:39  By no means! Surely, We have created them out of that what they (unbelievers) know
70:40  But nay! I swear by the Lord of the easts and the wests, that We have the powe
70:41  to destroy them and replace them with others better than them, and nothing can hinder Us from doing so
70:42  Therefore, leave them to plunge in vain talk and blunder about until they face that Day of theirs which they are being promised
70:43  The Day when they shall rush forward from their graves, as if they were racing towards a goal, with downcast eyes and countenances distorted with shame
70:44  Such will be the Day, which they are being promised
