 Surah Name Meaning: The Ways of Ascent
 Revealed at Mecca, Ayat 44

In the name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful

70:1

 

A questioner asked about a Penalty to befall-

70:2

 

The Unbelievers, the which there is none to ward off,-

70:3

 

(A Penalty) from Allah, Lord of the Ways of Ascent.

70:4

 

The angels and the spirit ascend unto him in a Day the measure whereof is (as) fifty thousand years:

70:5

 

Therefore do thou hold Patience,- a Patience of beautiful (contentment).

70:6

 

They see the (Day) indeed as a far-off (event):

70:7

 

But We see it (quite) near.

70:8

 

The Day that the sky will be like molten brass,

70:9

 

And the mountains will be like wool,

70:10

 

And no friend will ask after a friend,

70:11

 

Though they will be put in sight of each other,- the sinner's desire will be: Would that he could redeem himself from the Penalty of that Day by (sacrificing) his children,

70:12

 

His wife and his brother,

70:13

 

His kindred who sheltered him,

70:14

 

And all, all that is on earth,- so it could deliver him:

70:15

 

By no means! for it would be the Fire of Hell!-

70:16

 

Plucking out (his being) right to the skull!-

70:17

 

Inviting (all) such as turn their backs and turn away their faces (from the Right).

70:18

 

And collect (wealth) and hide it (from use)!

70:19

 

Truly man was created very impatient;-

70:20

 

Fretful when evil touches him;

70:21

 

And niggardly when good reaches him;-

70:22

 

Not so those devoted to Prayer;-

70:23

 

Those who remain steadfast to their prayer;

70:24

 

And those in whose wealth is a recognised right.

70:25

 

For the (needy) who asks and him who is prevented (for some reason from asking);

70:26

 

And those who hold to the truth of the Day of Judgment;

70:27

 

And those who fear the displeasure of their Lord,-

70:28

 

For their Lord's displeasure is the opposite of Peace and Tranquillity;-

70:29

 

And those who guard their chastity,

70:30

 

Except with their wives and the (captives) whom their right hands possess,- for (then) they are not to be blamed,

70:31

 

But those who trespass beyond this are transgressors;-

70:32

 

And those who respect their trusts and covenants;

70:33

 

And those who stand firm in their testimonies;

70:34

 

And those who guard (the sacredness) of their worship;-

70:35

 

Such will be the honoured ones in the Gardens (of Bliss).

70:36

 

Now what is the matter with the Unbelievers that they rush madly before thee-

70:37

 

From the right and from the left, in crowds?

70:38

 

Does every man of them long to enter the Garden of Bliss?

70:39

 

By no means! For We have created them out of the (base matter) they know!

70:40

 

Now I do call to witness the Lord of all points in the East and the West that We can certainly-

70:41

 

Substitute for them better (men) than they; And We are not to be defeated (in Our Plan).

70:42

 

So leave them to plunge in vain talk and play about, until they encounter that Day of theirs which they have been promised!-

70:43

 

The Day whereon they will issue from their sepulchres in sudden haste as if they were rushing to a goal-post (fixed for them),-

70:44

 

Their eyes lowered in dejection,- ignominy covering them (all over)! such is the Day the which they are promised!
