[The Monotheist Group] (2011 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 ascent 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 sky 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 As well as his mate and his brother
70:13 As well as his whole clan that protected him
70:14 And all who are on Earth, so that he can be saved
70:15 No, it is a 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, mankind 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 reach out
70:23 Who are always maintaining their contact-method
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 Judgment
70:27 And those who are fearful of their Lord's retribution
70:28 The retribution of their Lord is not to be taken for granted
70:29 And those who conceal their private parts
70:30 Except around their spouses or those committed to by oath, there is no blame
70:31 Then, whoever seeks anything beyond this, they are the transgressors
70:32 And those who are trustworthy and keep their pledges
70:33 And those who uphold their testimonies
70:34 And those who are dedicated to their contact-method
70:35 They will be honoured in paradises
70:36 So what is wrong with the rejecters staring at yo
70:37 From the right and the left, in crowd
70:38 Does every one of them hope to enter a paradise of blis
70:39 No, We have created them from what they know
70:40 So I 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
