Spiritually blind person has demanded a (divine) retribution bound to come
For those who are spiritually dead and blind- which none can avert-
From Allâh, the Lord of the Ascending Stairways.
The Angels and the holy spirit- (Archangel Gabriel)- ascend to Him in a day whereof the measure of which is fifty thousand years.
Now, therefore, cling to patience with adorable patience.
Verily they see that (day) as a far-off (event),
Whereas We see it very near.
On that day the sky will become like molten copper,
And the mountains like flakes of wool.
And no friend will ask his friend (about his condition)
Though they are made to see each other. The Ungodly Sinner wishes he would be able to ransom himself from the chastisement of that day by (sacrificing) his children,
His wife, his brother,
And his kinsfolk who sheltered him,
Even all the people on earth if that would save him.
But nay! Indeed, it is a Flaming Fire,
Extremely eager for burning.
It will claim whoever turned away (from the truth)
Hoarded wealth and withheld it.
Verily, man has a (natural tendency) to be quickly irritated
Extremely anxious when he is touched by evil,
Niggardly when he is touched by richness;
Except for those who who pray,
Persistent in performing their prayer,
And who give a due share of their wealth
To the beggar and the needy,
And who have Absolute Faith in the Day of Judgment,
And those who desire to be saved from the punishment of their Lord-
For they know that none should feel secure from punishment of their Lord-
And those who guard their chastity
Except from their wives and those whom their right hands possess, in such a case they are free from blame-
But those who go beyond this are the transgressors-
And those who are faithful to their trusts and their covenant,
And those who stand firm in their testimonies;
And those who always maintain their prayer.
These will be highly honored in the Garden of Bliss
What is the matter with the those who persistently refuse to yield to the Truth, that they rush towards you with outstretched necks
And staring eyes from the right and from the left in scattered groups?!
Does every one of them hope to be admitted to the Paradise of Bliss?
Nay, indeed, We have created them out of what they know.
But nay! I swear by the Lord of the Eastern and Western regions that We are surely able
To replace them by others better than them. We are not to be outrun.
Now, therefore, leave them alone to converse vainly and amuse themselves until they meet their day which they are promised.
The day when they come out of the graves in haste as though they were racing to a goal
With their eyes lowered in fear and humility, while humiliation covering them. Such is the day which they are promised.
