70:1  A questioner asks about the chastisement to befal
70:2  The disbelievers -- there is none to avert it -
70:3  From Allah, Lord of the ways of Ascent
70:4  To Him ascend the angels and the Spirit in a day the measure of which is fifty thousand years
70:5  So be patient with a goodly patience
70:6  Surely they see it far off
70:7  And We see it nigh
70:8  The day when the heaven is as molten brass
70:9  And the mountains are as wool
70:10  And no friend will ask of friend
70:11  (Though) they are made to see them. The guilty one would fain redeem himself from the chastisement of that day by his children
70:12  And his wife and his brother
70:13  And his kin that gave him shelter
70:14  And all that are in the earth -- then deliver him -
70:15  By no means! Surely it is a flaming Fire
70:16  Plucking out the extremities -
70:17  It shall claim him who retreats and turns his back
70:18  And hoards then withholds
70:19  Surely man is created impatient -
70:20  Fretful when evil afflicts him
70:21  And niggardly when good befalls him -
70:22  Except those who pray
70:23  Who are constant at their prayer
70:24  And in whose wealth there is a known righ
70:25  For the beggar and the destitute
70:26  And those who accept the truth of the day of Judgment
70:27  And those who are fearful of the chastisement of their Lord -
70:28  Surely the chastisement of their Lord is (a thing) not to be felt secure from -
70:29  And those who restrain their sexual passions
70:30  Except in the presence of their mates or those whom their right hands possess -- for such surely are not to be blamed
70:31  But he who seeks to go beyond this, these are the transgressors
70:32  And those who are faithful to their trusts and their covenant
70:33  And those who are upright in their testimonies
70:34  And those who keep a guard on their prayer
70:35  These are in Gardens, honoured
70:36  But what is the matter with those who disbelieve, that they hasten on to thee
70:37  On the right hand and on the left, in sundry parties
70:38  Does every man of them desire to be admitted to the Garden of bliss
70:39  By no means! Surely We have created them for what they know
70:40  But nay! I swear by the Lord of the Eastern lands and the Western lands! that We are certainly Powerfu
70:41  To bring in their place (others) better than them, and We shall not be overcome
70:42  So leave them alone to plunge in vain talk and to sport, until they come face to face with that day of theirs which they are promised -
70:43  The day when they come forth from the graves in haste, as hastening on to a goal
70:44  Their eyes cast down, disgrace covering them. Such is the day which they are promised
