Ali Quli Qarai, The Qur’ān with a Phrase-by-Phrase English Translation (2005)

and the Book 1 will be set up,
and the prophets and the martyrs 2 will be brought,
and judgment will be made between them with justice,
and they will not be wronged.
70 Every soul will be recompensed fully
for what it has done,
and He is best aware of what they do.
71 The faithless will be driven to hell
in throngs.
When they reach it,
and its gates are opened,
its keepers will say to them,
‘Did there not come to you [any] apostles
from among yourselves,
reciting to you the signs of your Lord
and warning you
of the encounter of this day of yours?’
They will say, ‘Yes,
but the word of punishment became due
against the faithless.’
72 It will be said, ‘Enter the gates of hell
to remain in it [forever].
Evil is the [ultimate] abode of the arrogant.’
73 Those who are wary of their Lord will be led
to paradise in throngs.
When they reach it,
and its gates are opened,

1 That is, the record of the people’s deeds.

2 Or ‘the witnesses.’
