[70.1] A caller supplicated about a punishment to fall on
[70.2] the unbelievers which none can prevent.
[70.3] (A punishment) from Allah, the Owner of the Elevated Passages.
[70.4] To Him the angels and the Spirit (Gabriel) ascend in a day, the measure of which is fifty thousand years.
[70.5] Therefore be patient, with a beautiful patience;
[70.6] they see it as being far off;
[70.7] but We see it near.
[70.8] On that Day the heaven shall become like molten copper,
[70.9] and the mountains shall be like puffs of wool.
[70.10] No loyal friend will ask another loyal friend
[70.11] though they are in sight of each other. To ransom himself from the punishment of that Day, the sinner will wish that he might even ransom himself by his sons,
[70.12] his companion (wife), his brother,
[70.13] the kinsmen who gave him shelter,
[70.14] and whosoever is in the earth, altogether, so that it might save him.
[70.15] No, in truth, it is a Furnace!
[70.16] It snatches away by the scalps,
[70.17] and it shall call him who withdrew and turned his back
[70.18] and amassed (riches) and hoarded.
[70.19] Indeed, the human was created grudging and impatient.
[70.20] When evil comes upon him he is impatient;
[70.21] but when good comes upon him, he is grudging
[70.22] except those that pray
[70.23] who are constant in prayer;
[70.24] who, from their wealth is a known right
[70.25] for the impoverished non-requester and the requester,
[70.26] who confirm the Day of Reckoning
[70.27] and go in fear of the punishment of their Lord,
[70.28] for none is secure from the punishment of their Lord,
[70.29] who guard their privates
[70.30] except from their wives and what their right hands own, for these they are not blameworthy.
[70.31] But whosoever seeks beyond that, they are the transgressors.
[70.32] (Those) who keep their trusts and their covenant,
[70.33] and standby their witnessing,
[70.34] and who are constant in their prayers.
[70.35] Those are highly honored in the Gardens.
[70.36] But what is the matter with the unbelievers, that they strain their glances continuously towards them,
[70.37] on the right and on the left in groups?
[70.38] What, is every one of them eager to be admitted to the Garden of Bliss?
[70.39] Not at all, for We have created them of what they know.
[70.40] No, I swear by the Lord of the Easts and the Wests that We have the ability
[70.41] to exchange them with others better than they; nothing can outstrip Us!
[70.42] So leave them alone to plunge and play, until they encounter the Day which they are promised;
[70.43] the Day when they shall rush from their graves, as if they were hurrying to a raised flag,
[70.44] their eyes are humbled and they are covered with humiliation. Such is the Day that they were promised.
