70:19 Man is created with an anxious disposition.
70:20 Despondent when harm touches him.
70:21 And stingy when good reaches him.
70:22 Except the Musalleen (from Salaat - are not the so-called ritualistic praying ones, but)
70:23 Those who always follow the Divine System.
70:24 Those in whose wealth and possessions is a known right,
70:25 For him who asks for help, and for him who is deprived.
70:26 Those who have conviction in the Day of Judgment. [And therefore, in the Law of Recompense]
70:27 Those who are fearful of their Lord’s requital.
70:28 (They know that) none can feel secure against their Lord’s requital.
70:29 (Still Musalleen are also) Those men and women who maintain their chastity.
70:30 They have intimate relations only with their spouses – that is, those who are rightfully theirs through wedlock. For such relationship they are free of blame. [‘Aw’ = Or = That is = And. 23:5-7]
70:31 But anyone who seeks beyond this, those are the transgressors.
70:32 (And Musalleen are) Those who guard their trusts and duties assigned to them, and their pledges, as a shepherd guards his flock.
70:33 Those who are truthful as witness and stand by their testimony.
70:34 Those who consolidate and protect the Divine System.
70:35 (Musalleen are the ones who collectively build paradise on earth and inherit that in the Hereafter.) They will be the honored ones dwelling in the Gardens of bliss.
70:36 What then, is the matter with the rejecters that they rush to and fro before you, confused? [Instead of joining hands]
70:37 On the right and on the left, in groups.
70:38 Does every one of them hope to enter the Garden of bliss with this attitude?
70:39 Nay! They know with what We created them. [They know that humans have been created like other members of the animal kingdom. Intellect and free will make humans different. Thus they can strive for the Garden of bliss]
70:40 But nay! I call to Witness the Lord of all points in the East and all points in the West, We are Able
70:41 To replace them by others better than they are. And We are not to be outrun.
70:42 Let them chat and play until they meet their Day which they are promised.
70:43 The Day that they shall come forth in haste from their disintegrated states, as if racing toward a goal post.
70:44 With their eyes subdued in shame, humiliation overwhelming them. Such is the Day which they were promised again and again.
