Abdul Majid Daryabadi rendition of Surah The Ascending Stairways, The Ladders(al-Ma`arij)
70:1 There hath asked an asker for the torment about to befall.
70:2 The infidels, of which there is no averter.
70:3 From Allah, Owner of the ascending steps.
70:4 Whereby the angels ascend Unto Him and also the spirit, On a Day whereof the measure is fifty thousand years.
70:5 Wherefore be thou patient with a becoming patience.
70:6 Verily they behold it afar off.
70:7 And We behold it nigh.
70:8 It shall befall on a Day whereon the heaven shall become like Unto dregs of oil.
70:9 And then the mountains shall become like Unto wool dyed.
70:10 And not a friend shall ask a friend,
70:11 Though they shall be made to see one another. Fain would the guilty ransom himself from the torment of that Day by his children.
70:12 And his spouse and his brother.
70:13 And his kin that sheltered him.
70:14 And all who are on the earth; so that this might deliver him.
70:15 By no means! Verily it is a Flame.
70:16 Flaying off the scalp-skin.
70:17 It shall calll him who turneth back and backslideth.
70:18 And masseth and then hoardeth.
70:19 Verily man is formed impatient.
70:20 When evil toucheth him, he is bewailing.
70:21 And when good toucheth him he is begrudging.
70:22 Not so are the prayerful.
70:23 Who are at their prayer constant.
70:24 And those in whose riches is a known right.
70:25 For the beggar and the destitute.
70:26 And those who testify to the Day of Requital.
70:27 And those who are fearful of their Lord's torment -
70:28 Verily the torment of their Lord is not a thing to feel secure from.
70:29 And those who of their private parts are guards.
70:30 Save in regard to their spouses or those whom their right hands own; so verily they are not blameworthy -
70:31 And whosoever seeketh beyond that, then it is those who are the trespassers
70:32 And those who of their trusts and their covenant are keepers.
70:33 And those who stand firm in their testimonies.
70:34 And those who of their prayer are observant.
70:35 Those shall dwell in Gardens, honoured.
70:36 What aileth those who disbelieve, toward thee hastening.
70:37 On the right and on the left, in companies?
70:38 Coveteth every man of them, that he shall enter the Garden of Delight?
70:39 By no means! veriiy We! We have created them from that which they know.
70:40 I swear by the Lord of the easts and the wests, that, vierly We are Able.
70:41 To replace them by others better than they; and We are not to be outrun.
70:42 Wherefore let thou them alone plunging in vanity and sporting until they meet their Day which they are promised.
70:43 The Day whereon they shall come forth from the sepulchres hastily, as though they were to an altar hurrying.
70:44 Downcast shall be their looks; abjectness shall overspread them. Such is the Day which they are promised.
