1سَأَلَ سَائِلٌ بِعَذَابٍ وَاقِعٍ
70|1|A questioner questioned the imminent torment.
2لِّلْكَافِرِينَ لَيْسَ لَهُ دَافِعٌ
70|2|For the disbelievers; none can repel it.
3مِّنَ اللَّهِ ذِي الْمَعَارِجِ
70|3|From God, Lord of the Ways of Ascent.
4تَعْرُجُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ وَالرُّوحُ إِلَيْهِ فِي يَوْمٍ كَانَ مِقْدَارُهُ خَمْسِينَ أَلْفَ سَنَةٍ
70|4|Unto Him the angels and the Spirit ascend on a Day the duration of which is fifty thousand years.
5فَاصْبِرْ صَبْرًا جَمِيلًا
70|5|So be patient, with sweet patience.
6إِنَّهُمْ يَرَوْنَهُ بَعِيدًا
70|6|They see it distant.
7وَنَرَاهُ قَرِيبًا
70|7|But We see it near.
8يَوْمَ تَكُونُ السَّمَاءُ كَالْمُهْلِ
70|8|On the Day when the sky will be like molten brass.
9وَتَكُونُ الْجِبَالُ كَالْعِهْنِ
70|9|And the mountains will be like tufted wool.
10وَلَا يَسْأَلُ حَمِيمٌ حَمِيمًا
70|10|No friend will care about his friend.
11يُبَصَّرُونَهُمْ ۚ يَوَدُّ الْمُجْرِمُ لَوْ يَفْتَدِي مِنْ عَذَابِ يَوْمِئِذٍ بِبَنِيهِ
70|11|They will be shown each other. The criminal wishes he would be redeemed from the punishment of that Day by his children.
12وَصَاحِبَتِهِ وَأَخِيهِ
70|12|And his spouse, and his brother.
13وَفَصِيلَتِهِ الَّتِي تُؤْوِيهِ
70|13|And his family that sheltered him.
14وَمَن فِي الْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا ثُمَّ يُنجِيهِ
70|14|And everyone on earth, in order to save him.
15كَلَّا ۖ إِنَّهَا لَظَىٰ
70|15|By no means! It is a Raging Fire.
16نَزَّاعَةً لِّلشَّوَىٰ
70|16|It strips away the scalps.
17تَدْعُو مَنْ أَدْبَرَ وَتَوَلَّىٰ
70|17|It invites him who once turned his back and fled.
18وَجَمَعَ فَأَوْعَىٰ
70|18|And accumulated and hoarded.
19۞ إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ خُلِقَ هَلُوعًا
70|19|Man was created restless.
20إِذَا مَسَّهُ الشَّرُّ جَزُوعًا
70|20|Touched by adversity, he is fretful.
21وَإِذَا مَسَّهُ الْخَيْرُ مَنُوعًا
70|21|Touched by good, he is ungenerous.
22إِلَّا الْمُصَلِّينَ
70|22|Except the prayerful.
23الَّذِينَ هُمْ عَلَىٰ صَلَاتِهِمْ دَائِمُونَ
70|23|Those who are constant at their prayers.
24وَالَّذِينَ فِي أَمْوَالِهِمْ حَقٌّ مَّعْلُومٌ
70|24|And those in whose wealth is a rightful share.
25لِّلسَّائِلِ وَالْمَحْرُومِ
70|25|For the beggar and the deprived.
26وَالَّذِينَ يُصَدِّقُونَ بِيَوْمِ الدِّينِ
70|26|And those who affirm the Day of Judgment.
27وَالَّذِينَ هُم مِّنْ عَذَابِ رَبِّهِم مُّشْفِقُونَ
70|27|And those who fear the punishment of their Lord.
28إِنَّ عَذَابَ رَبِّهِمْ غَيْرُ مَأْمُونٍ
70|28|Their Lord’s punishment is not to be taken for granted.
29وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ لِفُرُوجِهِمْ حَافِظُونَ
70|29|And those who guard their chastity.
30إِلَّا عَلَىٰ أَزْوَاجِهِمْ أَوْ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُهُمْ فَإِنَّهُمْ غَيْرُ مَلُومِينَ
70|30|Except from their spouses or those living under their control, for then they are free of blame.
31فَمَنِ ابْتَغَىٰ وَرَاءَ ذَٰلِكَ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْعَادُونَ
70|31|But whoever seeks to go beyond that—these are the transgressors.
32وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ لِأَمَانَاتِهِمْ وَعَهْدِهِمْ رَاعُونَ
70|32|And those who honor their trusts and their pledges.
33وَالَّذِينَ هُم بِشَهَادَاتِهِمْ قَائِمُونَ
70|33|And those who stand by their testimonies.
34وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ عَلَىٰ صَلَاتِهِمْ يُحَافِظُونَ
70|34|And those who are dedicated to their prayers.
35أُولَٰئِكَ فِي جَنَّاتٍ مُّكْرَمُونَ
70|35|These will be honored in Gardens.
36فَمَالِ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا قِبَلَكَ مُهْطِعِينَ
70|36|What is with those who disbelieve, stretching their necks towards you.
37عَنِ الْيَمِينِ وَعَنِ الشِّمَالِ عِزِينَ
70|37|From the right, and from the left, banding together?
38أَيَطْمَعُ كُلُّ امْرِئٍ مِّنْهُمْ أَن يُدْخَلَ جَنَّةَ نَعِيمٍ
70|38|Is every one of them aspiring to be admitted into a Garden of Bliss?
39كَلَّا ۖ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاهُم مِّمَّا يَعْلَمُونَ
70|39|No indeed! We created them from what they know.
40فَلَا أُقْسِمُ بِرَبِّ الْمَشَارِقِ وَالْمَغَارِبِ إِنَّا لَقَادِرُونَ
70|40|I swear by the Lord of the Easts and the Wests, that We are Able.
41عَلَىٰ أَن نُّبَدِّلَ خَيْرًا مِّنْهُمْ وَمَا نَحْنُ بِمَسْبُوقِينَ
70|41|To replace them with better than they, and We are not to be outdone.
42فَذَرْهُمْ يَخُوضُوا وَيَلْعَبُوا حَتَّىٰ يُلَاقُوا يَوْمَهُمُ الَّذِي يُوعَدُونَ
70|42|So leave them to blunder and play, until they meet their Day which they are promised.
43يَوْمَ يَخْرُجُونَ مِنَ الْأَجْدَاثِ سِرَاعًا كَأَنَّهُمْ إِلَىٰ نُصُبٍ يُوفِضُونَ
70|43|The Day when they will emerge from the tombs in a rush, as though they were hurrying towards a target.
44خَاشِعَةً أَبْصَارُهُمْ تَرْهَقُهُمْ ذِلَّةٌ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ الْيَوْمُ الَّذِي كَانُوا يُوعَدُونَ
70|44|Their eyes cast down; overwhelmed by humiliation. This is the Day which they were promised.
