70:21 And whenever good fortune comes to him, he selfishly withholds it [from others].
70:22 Not so, however, are those who consciously turn towards God in prayer.
70:23 [And] who incessantly persevere in their prayer.
70:4 And in whose possessions there is a due share, acknowledged [by them].
70:25 For such as to ask [for help] and such as are deprived [of what is good in life].
70:26 And who accept as true the [coming of the] Day of Judgment.
70:27 And who stand in dread of their Sustainer’s chastisement.
70:28 For, behold, of their Sustainer’s chastisement none may ever feel [wholly] secure.
70:29 And who are mindful of their chastity.
70:30 [Not giving way to their desires] with any but their spouses – that is, those whom they rightfully possess [through wedlock], for then, behold, they are free of all blame.
70:31 Whereas such as seek to go beyond that [limit] are truly transgressors.
70:32 And who are faithful to their trusts and to their pledges.
70:33 And who stand firm whenever they bear witness.
70:34 And who guard their prayers [from all worldly intent].
70:35 These it is who in the gardens [of paradise] shall be honored!
70:36 What, Then, is amiss with such as are bent on denying the truth, that they run about confusedly to and fro before thee.
70:37 [Coming upon thee] from the right and from the left, in crowds?
70:38 Does every one of them hope to enter [by this means] a garden of bliss?
70:39 Never! For, behold, We have created them out of something that they know [only too well]!
70:40 But nay! I call to witness [Our being] the Sustainer of all the points of sunrise and sunset, Verily, well able are We.
70:41 To replace them with [people] better than they are, for there is nothing to prevent Us [from doing what We will].
70:42 Hence, leave them to indulge in idle talk and play [with words] until they face that [Judgment] Day of theirs which they have been promised.
70:43 The Day when they shall come forth in haste from their graves as if racing towards a goal-post.
70:44 With downcast eyes, with ignominy overwhelming them, that Day which they were promised again and again.
