Dr. Mohammad Tahir-ul-Qadri rendition of Surah The Ascending Stairways, The Ladders(al-Ma`arij)
---
70:1 A questioner asked for the torment which is sure to come about,
70:2 Upon the disbelievers, which no one can repel.
70:3 (That will befall) from Allah, Who is the Lord of the Ascending Steps to Heaven (and of the higher ranks and grades of spiritual hierarchy).
70:4 The angels and al-Ruh al-Amin (the Spirit) rise towards His (Throne) in a Day which measures fifty thousand years (according to the worldly scale).*
70:5 So, (O Beloved,) observe patience (on the assertions of the disbelievers) without regrets.
70:6 Surely, they imagine that (Day) to be far off,
70:7 But We see it very near.
70:8 On that Day the sky will become like molten copper,
70:9 And the mountains like (flakes of) coloured wool,
70:10 And no friend will enquire after his friend,
70:11 (Though) they will be shown (to one another). The sinner would desire to ransom himself from the torment of that Day by his children,
70:12 And (by giving) his wife and his brother,
70:13 And (all) his family who used to provide him shelter,
70:14 And all the people on earth (as recompense for himself), so that this (atonement) may save him from (Allah’s torment).
70:15 But no! By no means! Surely, that is a Flaming Fire,
70:16 Stripping off the skin of all the limbs and the scalp.
70:17 It is calling him who turned his back (on the truth) and turned away,
70:18 And (he who) accumulated wealth and then held it (from distribution).
70:19 Surely, man has been created impatient and greedy.
70:20 He gets upset and worried when some hardship (or financial loss) afflicts him,
70:21 But becomes miserly when he receives good fortune (or affluence),
70:22 Except for those who offer Prayer,
70:23 And are constant in their Prayer,
70:24 And those (who are committed to sacrifice and) in whose wealth there is a fixed share,
70:25 Of one who begs and of one who is needy but does not beg,
70:26 And those who affirm the Day of Requital,
70:27 And those who fear the torment of their Lord;
70:28 Surely, the torment of their Lord is not a thing which should not be feared;
70:29 And those who safeguard their private parts,
70:30 Except from their wives or the female slaves they possess. So (in this) there is no blame on them.
70:31 But he who looks for more than that, then it is they who transgress the limits.
70:32 And those who safeguard their trusts and promises,
70:33 And those who stand firm on their testimonies,
70:34 And those who safeguard their Prayers,
70:35 It is they who will enjoy great honour and respect in the Gardens.
70:36 So what is the matter with the disbelievers that they are coming towards you running,
70:37 From the right as well as the left, in groups?
70:38 Does every one of them hope that he may be admitted to the Garden of Bliss (without faith and deeds)?
70:39 Certainly not! Surely, We have created them from a substance which they (also) know.
70:40 So I swear by the Lord of the easts and the wests that surely We have Absolute Power,
70:41 To replace them with people better than them and We are not at all incapable (of doing it).
70:42 So leave them occupied with their absurd talk and pastime until they meet that Day of theirs which they have been promised.
70:43 The Day when they will come forth from their graves in haste as if they are running towards the temples of their idols.
70:44 (Their plight) will be that their eyes will be cast down (with shame and fear) and disgrace enveloping them. It is this Day which they were promised.
