Ali Quli Qara'i rendition of Surah The Ascending Stairways, The Ladders(al-Ma`arij)
70:1 An asker asked for a punishment bound to befal
70:2 —which none can avert from the faithless&mdash
70:3 from Allah, Lord of the lofty stations
70:4 The angels and the Spirit ascend to Him in a day whose span is fifty thousand years
70:5 So be patient, with a patience that is graceful
70:6 Indeed they see it to be far off
70:7 and We see it to be near
70:8 The day when the sky will be like molten copper
70:9 and the mountains like [tufts of] dyed wool
70:10 and no friend will inquire about [the welfare of his] friend
70:11 [though] they will be placed within each other’s sight. The guilty one will wish he could ransom himself from the punishment of that day at the price of his children
70:12 his spouse and his brother
70:13 his kin which had sheltered hi
70:14 and all those who are upon the earth, if that might deliver him
70:15 Never! Indeed it is a blazing fire
70:16 which strips away the scalp
70:17 It invites him who has turned back [from the truth] and forsaken [it]
70:18 amassing [wealth] and hoarding [it]
70:19 Indeed man has been created covetous
70:20 anxious when an ill befalls hi
70:21 and grudging when good comes his wa
70:22 —[all are such] except the prayerful
70:23 those who are persevering in their prayer
70:24 and in whose wealth there is a known righ
70:25 for the beggar and the deprived
70:26 and who affirm the Day of Retribution
70:27 and those who are apprehensive of the punishment of their Lor
70:28 (there is indeed no security from the punishment of their Lord
70:29 and those who guard their private part
70:30 (except from their spouses and their slave women, for then they are not blameworthy
70:31 but whoever seeks beyond that —it is they who are the transgressors
70:32 and those who keep their trusts and covenants
70:33 and those who are observant of their testimonies
70:34 and those who are watchful of their prayers
70:35 They will be in gardens, held in honour
70:36 What is the matter with the faithless that they scramble toward yo
70:37 from the left and the right in batches
70:38 Does each man among them hope to enter the garden of bliss
70:39 Never! Indeed We created them from what they know
70:40 So I swear by the Lord of the easts and the wests that We are abl
70:41 to replace them by [others] better than them and We are not to be outmaneuvered
70:42 So leave them to gossip and play until they encounter their day, which they are promised
70:43 the day when they emerge from the graves, hastening, as if racing toward a target
70:44 with a humbled look [in their eyes], overcast by abasement. That is the day they had been promised
