70:1  Someone has (needlessly) demanded to experience the torment (of God)
70:2  which will inevitably seize the disbelievers
70:3  No one can defend him against God, the Lord of the exalted positions
70:4  On that Day (of Judgment), long as fifty thousand years, the angels and the Spirit will ascend to Him
70:5  (Muhammad), exercise patience with no complaints
70:6  They think that it (the Day of Judgment) is far away
70:7  but We see it to be very near
70:8  On the day when the heavens become like molten metal
70:9  and the mountains become like wool
70:10  even intimate friends will not inquire about their friends
70:11  though they may see each other. A sinner will wish that he could save himself from the torment of that day by sacrificing his children
70:12  his wife, his brother
70:13  his kinsmen who gave him refuge (from hardship
70:14  and all those on earth
70:15  By no means! For the raging flames of the fir
70:16  will strip-off the fles
70:17  and drag into it anyone who has turned away (from obeying God)
70:18  and who accumulated wealth without spending it for a good purpose
70:19  Human beings are created greedy
70:20  When they are afflicted, they complain
70:21  but when they are fortunate, they become niggardl
70:22  except those who are steadfas
70:23  and constant in their prayers
70:24  They are those who assign a certain share of their propert
70:25  for the needy and the deprived
70:26  who acknowledge the Day of Judgment
70:27  who are afraid of the torment of their Lord
70:28  the punishment of their Lord is not something for them to feel secure of
70:29  who guard their carnal desire
70:30  except from their wives and slave girls, in which case they are not to be blamed
70:31  but whoever goes beyond this is a transgressor
70:32  who honor their trust and promises
70:33  who testify to what they have witnessed
70:34  and (finally) those who do not miss their ritual - prayers at the prescribed times
70:35  such people will receive due honor in Paradise
70:36  What is wrong with the disbelievers who roam around you (Muhammad)
70:37  left and right, in numerous groups
70:38  Does every one of them desire to enter the bountiful Paradise
70:39  By no means! For they know very well out of what We have created them (The human being's naturally growing from a living germ, without discipline and good deeds will not result in virtue)
70:40  I do not need to swear by the Lord of the eastern and western regions that We have certainly all the powe
70:41  to replace them by a better people and none can challenge Our power
70:42  (Muhammad), leave them alone to dispute and play until they face the Day with which they have been threatened
70:43  the Day when they rush out of their graves as if racing towards a signpost
70:44  with their eyes cast down and covered by disgrace; the day about which they were promised
