Sura 70:22 – 29 — The Ladders

[70.22] Not so the worshippers, [70.23] who are steadfast in prayer; [70.24] who set aside a due portion of their wealth [70.25] for the beggar and for the dispossessed; [70.26] who truly believe in the Day of Reckoning, [70.27] and dread the punishment of their Lord [70.28] (for none is secure from the punishment of their Lord); [70.29] who restrain their carnal desire
