[The Monotheist Group] (2013 Edition) rendition of Surah The Ascending Stairways, The Ladders(al-Ma`arij)
70:1 Someone asked about the inevitable retribution.
70:2 For the rejecters, there is nothing that will stop it.
70:3 From God, Possessor of the ascending portals.
70:4 The angels and the Spirit ascend to Him in a day which is equivalent to fifty thousand years.
70:5 So be patient with a good patience.
70:6 They see it as far away.
70:7 And We see it as near.
70:8 On the Day the heaven is like molten copper.
70:9 And the mountains are like wool.
70:10 And no friend will ask about his friend.
70:11 When they see it, the criminal will wish he can ransom his children against the retribution.
70:12 And his mate and his brother.
70:13 And his relatives who sheltered him.
70:14 And all who are on the earth, so that he can be saved!
70:15 No, it is a torching flame.
70:16 Eager to roast.
70:17 It calls on those who turned away.
70:18 And who hoarded and counted.
70:19 Indeed, man was created anxious.
70:20 When adversity touches him he is miserable.
70:21 And when good touches him he is stingy.
70:22 Except for those who make the contact prayer.
70:23 Who always observe their contact prayer.
70:24 And those who set aside part of their wealth.
70:25 For the seeker and the denied.
70:26 And those who believe in the Day of Recompense.
70:27 And those who are fearful of the retribution of their Lord.
70:28 The retribution of their Lord is not to be taken for granted.
70:29 And those who keep covered their private parts.
70:30 Except around their spouses or those maintained by their oaths, there is no blame.
70:31 Whoever seeks anything beyond this, they are the transgressors.
70:32 And those who look after what they have been entrusted to and to their pledges.
70:33 And those who uphold their testimonies.
70:34 And those who maintain their contact prayer.
70:35 They will be honored in gardens.
70:36 So what is wrong with the rejecters staring at you?
70:37 From the right and the left, in crowds?
70:38 Does every one of them hope to enter a garden of bliss?
70:39 No, We have created them from what they know.
70:40 So I do swear by the Lord of the east and the west, that We are able.
70:41 To replace them with better people, We can never be defeated.
70:42 So let them talk in vain and play, until they meet their Day which they are promised.
70:43 When they will come out of the graves in a rush, as if they are racing towards a goal.
70:44 Their eyes are cast down, with shame covering them. This is the Day which they were promised.
