25:63 The true servants of the Beneficent are those who walk upon the earth humbly, and when the ignorant ones address them, they say, "Peace!" [3:138, 22:41, 31:17-18]

25:64 And those who adore their Lord at night, making a rightful submission and taking a rightful stand.

25:65 And those who say, “Our Lord! Spare us the agony of Hell, for its doom is relentless.”

25:66 It is a miserable abode and resting place.

25:67 And those who, when they spend their wealth, are neither wasteful, nor stingy. And (they know that) there is always middle ground between the two extremes. [2:219, 17:29]

25:68 Those who call on no deities along with God. Nor take a life that God has forbidden except in the course of justice (through a court of law). Nor do they commit adultery; and whoever does this, drags down one’s own humanity.

25:69 The retribution on the Day of Resurrection will be doubled for him and therein He will abide in lasting humiliation,

25:70 Except one who repents and believes in the Permanent Moral Values and takes corrective action. For such, God will replace the ill effects of their deeds with the balancing effects of good deeds. God is Forgiving, Merciful.

25:71 And whoever repents and takes corrective action, certainly he turns toward God with true repentance.

25:72 Those who: Never give false witness, do not participate in assemblies of vanity, and when they have to pass by futility, they pass by it with dignity,

25:73 When they are reminded of (even) the revelations of their Lord, they do not fall at them deaf and blind (with deaf and blind acceptance).

25:74 And those who pray, "Our Lord! Grant that our spouses and our children be a joy to our eyes (that they excel in character). And let us be the foremost among the righteous."

25:75 Such are the ones who will be rewarded with a high station of honor for their steadfast commitment (to their Lord). Therein they will be met with salutation and peace.

25:76 Therein to abide. What a goodly destiny! And what a high station!
