70:1  One demanding, demanded the chastisement which must befal
70:2  The unbelievers-- there is none to avert it-
70:3  From Allah, the 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  Therefore endure with a goodly patience
70:6  Surely they think it to be far off
70:7  And We see it nigh
70:8  On the day when the heaven shall be as molten coppe
70:9  And the mountains shall be as tufts of woo
70:10  And friend shall not ask of frien
70:11  (Though) they shall be made to see each other. The guilty one would fain redeem himself from the chastisement of that day by (sacrificing) his children
70:12  And his wife and his brothe
70:13  And the nearest of his kinsfolk who gave him shelter
70:14  And all those that are in the earth, (wishing) then (that) this might deliver him
70:15  By no means! Surely it is a flaming fir
70:16  Dragging by the head
70:17  It shall claim him who turned and fled (from truth)
70:18  And amasses (wealth) then shuts it up
70:19  Surely man is created of a hasty temperamen
70:20  Being greatly grieved when evil afflicts hi
70:21  And niggardly when good befalls hi
70:22  Except those who pray
70:23  Those who are constant at their praye
70:24  And those in whose wealth there is a fixed portion
70:25  For him who begs and for him who is denied (good
70:26  And those who accept the truth of the judgment da
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 of-
70:29  And those who guard their private parts
70:30  Except in the case of their wives or those whom their right hands possess-- for these surely are not to be blamed
70:31  But he who seeks to go beyond this, these it is that go beyond the limits-
70:32  And those who are faithful to their trusts and their covenan
70:33  And those who are upright in their testimonies
70:34  And those who keep a guard on their prayer
70:35  Those shall be in gardens, honored
70:36  But what is the matter with those who disbelieve that they hasten on around you
70:37  On the right hand and on the left, in sundry parties
70:38  Does every man of them desire that he should be made to enter the garden of bliss
70:39  By no means! Surely We have created them of what they know
70:40  But nay! I swear by the Lord of the Easts and the Wests that We are certainly abl
70:41  To bring instead (others) better than them, and We shall not be overcome
70:42  Therefore leave them alone to go on with the false discourses and to sport until they come face to face with that day of theirs with which they are threatened
70:43  The day on which they shall come forth from their graves in haste, as if they were hastening on to a goal
70:44  Their eyes cast down; disgrace shall overtake them; that is the day which they were threatened with
