070.000 The Ascending Stairways

 

070.001

A questioner questioned concerning the doom about to fall

070.002

Upon the disbelievers, which none can repel,

070.003

From Allah, Lord of the Ascending Stairways

070.004

(Whereby) the angels and the Spirit ascend unto Him in a Day whereof the span is fifty thousand years.

070.005

But be patient (O Muhammad) with a patience fair to see.

070.006

Lo! they behold it afar off

070.007

While we behold it nigh:

070.008

The day when the sky will become as molten copper,

070.009

And the hills become as flakes of wool,

070.010

And no familiar friend will ask a question of his friend

070.011

Though they will be given sight of them. The guilty man will long to be able to ransom himself from the punishment of that day at the price of his children

070.012

And his spouse and his brother

070.013

And his kin that harboured him

070.014

And all that are in the earth, if then it might deliver him.

070.015

But nay! for lo! it is the fire of hell

070.016

Eager to roast;

070.017

It calleth him who turned and fled (from truth),

070.018

And hoarded (wealth) and withheld it.

070.019

Lo! man was created anxious,

070.020

Fretful when evil befalleth him

070.021

And, when good befalleth him, grudging;

070.022

Save worshippers.

070.023

Who are constant at their worship

070.024

And in whose wealth there is a right acknowledged

070.025

For the beggar and the destitute;

070.026

And those who believe in the Day of Judgment,

070.027

And those who are fearful of their Lord's doom -

070.028

Lo! the doom of their Lord is that before which none can feel secure -

070.029

And those who preserve their chastity

070.030

Save with their wives and those whom their right hands possess, for thus they are not blameworthy;

070.031

But whoso seeketh more than that, those are they who are transgressors;

070.032

And those who keep their pledges and their covenant,

070.033

And those who stand by their testimony

070.034

And those who are attentive at their worship.

070.035

These will dwell in Gardens, honoured.

070.036

What aileth those who disbelieve, that they keep staring toward thee (O Muhammad), open-eyed,

070.037

On the right and on the left, in groups ?

070.038

Doth every man among them hope to enter the Garden of Delight ?

070.039

Nay, verily. Lo! We created them from what they know.

070.040

But nay! I swear by the Lord of the rising-places and the setting-places of the planets that We verily are Able

070.041

To replace them by (others) better than them. And we are not to be outrun.

070.042

So let them chat and play until they meet their Day which they are promised,

070.043

The day when they come forth from the graves in haste, as racing to a goal,

070.044

With eyes aghast, abasement stupefying them: Such is the Day which they are promised.
