70:1  Spiritually blind person has demanded a (divine) retribution bound to come
70:2  For those who are spiritually dead and blind- which none can avert-
70:3  From Allâh, the Lord of the Ascending Stairways.
70:4  The Angels and the holy spirit- (Archangel Gabriel)- ascend to Him in a day whereof the measure of which is fifty thousand years.
70:5  Now, therefore, cling to patience with adorable patience.
70:6  Verily they see that (day) as a far-off (event),
70:7  Whereas 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 wool.
70:10  And no friend will ask his friend (about his condition)
70:11  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,
70:12  His wife, his brother,
70:13  And his kinsfolk who sheltered him,
70:14  Even all the people on earth if that would save him.
70:15  But nay! Indeed, it is a Flaming Fire,
70:16  Extremely eager for burning.
70:17  It will claim whoever turned away (from the truth)
70:18  Hoarded wealth and withheld it.
70:19  Verily, man has a (natural tendency) to be quickly irritated
70:20  Extremely anxious when he is touched by evil,
70:21  Niggardly when he is touched by richness;
70:22  Except for those who who pray,
70:23  Persistent in performing their prayer,
70:24  And who give a due share of their wealth
70:25  To the beggar and the needy,
70:26  And who have Absolute Faith in the Day of Judgment,
70:27  And those who desire to be saved from the punishment of their Lord-
70:28  For they know that none should feel secure from punishment of their Lord-
70:29  And those who guard their chastity
70:30  Except from their wives and those whom their right hands possess, in such a case they are free from blame-
70:31  But those who go beyond this are the transgressors-
70:32  And those who are faithful to their trusts and their covenant,
70:33  And those who stand firm in their testimonies;
70:34  And those who always maintain their prayer.
70:35  These will be highly honored in the Garden of Bliss
70:36  What is the matter with the those who persistently refuse to yield to the Truth, that they rush towards you with outstretched necks
70:37  And staring eyes from the right and from the left in scattered groups?!
70:38  Does every one of them hope to be admitted to the Paradise of Bliss?
70:39  Nay, indeed, We have created them out of what they know.
70:40  But nay! I swear by the Lord of the Eastern and Western regions that We are surely able
70:41  To replace them by others better than them. We are not to be outrun.
70:42  Now, therefore, leave them alone to converse vainly and amuse themselves until they meet their day which they are promised.
70:43  The day when they come out of the graves in haste as though they were racing to a goal
70:44  With their eyes lowered in fear and humility, while humiliation covering them. Such is the day which they are promised.
