70:1  A requester seeks the punishment that will take place
70:2  - Upon the disbelievers – the punishment that none can avert
70:3  From Allah, the Lord of all pinnacles
70:4  The angels and Jibreel, ascend towards Him – the punishment will befall on a day which spans fifty thousand years
70:5  Therefore patiently endure, in the best manner (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him)
70:6  They deem it to be remote
70:7  Whereas We see it impending
70:8  The day when the sky will be like molten silver
70:9  And the hills will be light as wool
70:10  And no friend will ask concerning his friend
70:11  They will be seeing them; the guilty will wish if only he could redeem himself from the punishment of that day, by offering his sons
70:12  And his wife and his brother
70:13  And the family in which he was
70:14  And all those who are in the earth - then only if the redemption saves him
70:15  Never! That is indeed a blazing fire
70:16  A fire that melts the hide
70:17  It calls out to him who reverted and turned away
70:18  And accumulated wealth and hoarded it
70:19  Indeed man is created very impatient, greedy
70:20  Very nervous when touched by misfortune
70:21  And refraining, when good reaches him
70:22  Except those who establish prayer
70:23  Those who are regular in their prayers
70:24  And those in whose wealth exists a recognised right
70:25  For those who beg, and for the needy who cannot even ask
70:26  And those who believe the Day of Judgement to be true
70:27  And those who fear the punishment of their Lord
70:28  Indeed the punishment of their Lord is not a thing to be unafraid of
70:29  And those who protect their private organs (from adultery)
70:30  Except with their wives and the bondwomen in their possession, for there is no reproach on them
70:31  So those who desire more than this – it is they who are the transgressors
70:32  And those who protect the property entrusted to them, and their agreements
70:33  And those who are firm upon their testimonies
70:34  And those who protect their prayers
70:35  It is these who will be honoured in Gardens
70:36  So what is the matter with these disbelievers, that they stare at you (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him)
70:37  From the right and the left, in groups
70:38  Does every man among them aspire to be admitted into the Garden of serenity
70:39  Never! We have indeed created them from a thing they know
70:40  So I swear by the Lord of every East and every West, that We are indeed Able
70:41  To replace them by those better than them; and none can escape from Us
70:42  Therefore leave them, involved in their indecencies and play, till they confront their day which they are promised
70:43  A day when they will come out of the graves in haste, as if rushing towards their goals
70:44  With lowered eyes, disgrace overcoming them; this is the day, which they had been promised
