The Holy Quran
Chapter 70,  Translated By Shaikh Muhammad Sarwar

HIGH RANKS  (al-ma'rij) 

In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Someone has (needlessly) demanded to experience the torment (of God), (70:1)

which will inevitably seize the disbelievers (2).

No one can defend him against God, the Lord of the exalted positions (3).

On that Day (of Judgment), long as fifty thousand years, the angels and the
Spirit will ascend to Him (4).

(Muhammad), exercise patience with no complaints (5).

They think that it (the Day of Judgment) is far away (6).

but We see it to be very near (7).

On the day when the heavens become like molten metal (8).

and the mountains become like wool, (9) even intimate friends will not
inquire about their friends, (10) 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, (11)

his wife, his brother, (12) his kinsmen who gave him refuge (from hardship)
(13) and all those on earth (14).

By no means! For the raging flames of the fire (15)

will strip-off the flesh (16) and drag into it anyone who has turned away
(from obeying God), (17) and who accumulated wealth without spending it for a
good purpose (18).

Human beings are created greedy (19).

When they are afflicted, they complain, (20)

but when they are fortunate, they become niggardly (21) except those who are
steadfast (22) and constant in their prayers (23).

They are those who assign a certain share of their property (24) for the
needy and the deprived, (25) who acknowledge the Day of Judgment, (26) who are
afraid of the torment of their Lord, (27) the punishment of their Lord is not
something for them to feel secure of, (28) who guard their carnal desires (29)
except from their wives and slave girls, in which case they are not to be
blamed, (30) but whoever goes beyond this is a transgressor; (31) who honor their
trust and promises, (32) who testify to what they have witnessed, (33) and
(finally) those who do not miss their ritual - prayers at the prescribed times;
(34) such people will receive due honor in Paradise (35).

What is wrong with the disbelievers who roam around you (Muhammad), (36) left
and right, in numerous groups? (37).

Does every one of them desire to enter the bountiful Paradise? (38).

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) (39).

I do not need to swear by the Lord of the eastern and western regions that We
have certainly all the power (40) to replace them by a better people and none
can challenge Our power (41).

(Muhammad), leave them alone to dispute and play until they face the Day with
which they have been threatened: (42) the Day when they rush out of their
graves as if racing towards a signpost, (43) with their eyes cast down and
covered by disgrace; the day about which they were promised (44).
