Description

This sūra begins by responding to a question about the coming punishment. A description of those who will enter the Garden follows. It then concludes by assuring the Prophet that his opponents are doomed. Q70 takes its title from the reference to the ‘stairways’ or ‘ladders’ to heaven on which the angels descend and ascend (Q70.3).
