Farook Malik rendition of Surah The Ascending Stairways, The Ladders(al-Ma`arij)
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 brass
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 wealth
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 Lord
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 testimonies
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 power
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.
