Chapter 70 : The Heights (Al-Ma`aarej)


Sura:Verse English Arabic
70:0 In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
70:1 A questioner may question the inevitable retribution. سَأَلَ سَائِلٌ بِعَذَابٍ وَاقِعٍ
70:2 For the disbelievers, none can stop it. لِلْكَفِرينَ لَيْسَ لَهُ دَافِعٌ
70:3 From GOD; Possessor of the highest Height. مِنْ اللَّهِ ذِي الْمَعَارِجِ
70:4 The angels, with their reports, climb to Him in a day that equals fifty thousand years. تَعْرُجُ الْمَلَئِكَةُ وَالرُّوحُ إِلَيْهِ فِي يَوْمٍ كَانَ مِقْدَارُهُ خَمْسِينَ أَلْفَ سَنَةٍ
70:5 Therefore, you shall resort to a gracious patience. فَاصْبِرْ صَبْرًا جَمِيلًا
70:6 For they see it far away. إِنَّهُمْ يَرَوْنَهُ بَعِيدًا
70:7 While we see it very close. وَنَرَهُ قَرِيبًا
70:8 The day will come when the sky will be like molten rocks. يَوْمَ تَكُونُ السَّمَاءُ كَالْمُهْلِ
70:9 The mountains will be like fluffy wool. وَتَكُونُ الْجِبَالُ كَالْعِهْنِ
70:10 No friend will care about his close friend. وَلَا يَسْءلُ حَمِيمٌ حَمِيمًا
70:11 When they see them, the guilty will wish he could give his own children as ransom, to spare him the retribution of that day. يُبَصَّرُونَهُمْ يَوَدُّ الْمُجْرِمُ لَوْ يَفْتَدِي مِنْ عَذَابِ يَوْمِئِذٍ بِبَنِيهِ
70:12 Also his spouse, and his brother. وَصَحِبَتِهِ وَأَخِيهِ
70:13 Even his whole tribe that raised him. وَفَصِيلَتِهِ الَّتِي تُءويهِ
70:14 Even all the people on earth, if it would save him. وَمَنْ فِي الْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا ثُمَّ يُنجِيهِ
70:15 No; it is aflame. كَلَّا إِنَّهَا لَظَى
70:16 Eager to burn. نَزَّاعَةً لِلشَّوَى
70:17 It calls on those who turned away. تَدْعُوا مَنْ أَدْبَرَ وَتَوَلَّى
70:18 Those who hoarded and counted. وَجَمَعَ فَأَوْعَى
70:19 Indeed, the human being is anxious. إِنَّ الْإِنسَنَ خُلِقَ هَلُوعًا
70:20 If touched by adversity, despondent. إِذَا مَسَّهُ الشَّرُّ جَزُوعًا
70:21 If blessed by wealth, stingy. وَإِذَا مَسَّهُ الْخَيْرُ مَنُوعًا
70:22 Except for the worshipers. إِلَّا الْمُصَلِّينَ
70:23 Who always observe their contact prayers (Salat). الَّذِينَ هُمْ عَلَى صَلَاتِهِمْ دَائِمُونَ
70:24 Part of their money is set aside. وَالَّذِينَ فِي أَمْوَلِهِمْ حَقٌّ مَعْلُومٌ
70:25 For the poor and the needy. لِلسَّائِلِ وَالْمَحْرُومِ
70:26 They believe in the Day of Judgment. وَالَّذِينَ يُصَدِّقُونَ بِيَوْمِ الدِّينِ
70:27 They reverence their Lord's requital. وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ مِنْ عَذَابِ رَبِّهِمْ مُشْفِقُونَ
70:28 Their Lord's requital is not taken for granted. إِنَّ عَذَابَ رَبِّهِمْ غَيْرُ مَأْمُونٍ
70:29 They keep their chastity. وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ لِفُرُوجِهِمْ حَفِظُونَ
70:30 (They have relations) only with their spouses, or what is legally theirs - إِلَّا عَلَى أَزْوَجِهِمْ أَوْ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَنُهُمْ فَإِنَّهُمْ غَيْرُ مَلُومِينَ
70:31 anyone who transgresses these limits is a sinner. فَمَنْ ابْتَغَى وَرَاءَ ذَلِكَ فَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمْ الْعَادُونَ
70:32 And the believers keep their word; they are trustworthy. وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ لِأَمَنَتِهِمْ وَعَهْدِهِمْ رَعُونَ
70:33 Their testimony is truthful. وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ بِشَهَدَتِهِمْ قَائِمُونَ
70:34 They consistently observe their contact prayers (Salat) on time. وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ عَلَى صَلَاتِهِمْ يُحَافِظُونَ
70:35 They have deserved a position of honor in Paradise. أُوْلَئِكَ فِي جَنَّتٍ مُكْرَمُونَ
70:36 What is keeping those who disbelieved from joining you? فَمَالِ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا قِبَلَكَ مُهْطِعِينَ
70:37 To the right, and to the left, they flee. عَنْ الْيَمِينِ وَعَنْ الشِّمَالِ عِزِينَ
70:38 How can any of them expect to enter the blissful Paradise? أَيَطْمَعُ كُلُّ امْرِئٍ مِنْهُمْ أَنْ يُدْخَلَ جَنَّةَ نَعِيمٍ
70:39 Never; we created them, and they know from what. كَلَّا إِنَّا خَلَقْنَهُمْ مِمَّا يَعْلَمُونَ
70:40 I solemnly swear by the Lord of the easts and the wests; we are able - فَلَا أُقْسِمُ بِرَبِّ الْمَشَرِقِ وَالْمَغَرِبِ إِنَّا لَقَدِرُونَ
70:41 to substitute better people in your place; we can never be defeated. عَلَى أَنْ نُبَدِّلَ خَيْرًا مِنْهُمْ وَمَا نَحْنُ بِمَسْبُوقِينَ
70:42 Therefore, let them blunder and play, until they meet the day that is awaiting them. فَذَرْهُمْ يَخُوضُوا وَيَلْعَبُوا حَتَّى يُلَقُوا يَوْمَهُمْ الَّذِي يُوعَدُونَ
70:43 That is the day they come out of the graves in a hurry, as if herded to the (sacrificial) altars. يَوْمَ يَخْرُجُونَ مِنْ الْأَجْدَاثِ سِرَاعًا كَأَنَّهُمْ إِلَى نُصُبٍ يُوفِضُونَ
70:44 With their eyes subdued, shame will cover them. That is the day that is awaiting them. خَشِعَةً أَبْصَرُهُمْ تَرْهَقُهُمْ ذِلَّةٌ ذَلِكَ الْيَوْمُ الَّذِي كَانُوا يُوعَدُونَ

Praise be to God Lord of the universe.
