[50.1] Qaf. By the Glorious
[50.2] Nay, but they marvel that a warner of their own hath come
unto them; and the disbelievers say: This is a strange thing:
[50.3] When we are dead and have become dust (shall we be
brought back again) ? That would be a far return!
[50.4] We know that which the earth taketh of them, and with Us
is a recording Book.
[50.5] Nay, but they have denied the truth when it came unto
them, therefor they are now in troubled case.
[50.6] Have they not then observed the sky above them, how We
have constructed it and beautified it, and how there are no
rifts therein ?
[50.7] And the earth have We spread out, and have flung firm
hills therein, and have caused of every lovely kind to grow
[50.8] A vision and a reminder for every penitent slave.
[50.9] And We send down from the sky blessed water whereby We
give growth unto gardens and the grain of crops,
[50.10] And lofty date-palms with ranged clusters,
[50.11] Provision (made) for men; and therewith We quicken a
dead land. Even so will be the resurrection of the dead.
[50.12] The folk of Noah denied (the truth) before them, and (so
did) the dwellers at Ar-Rass and (the tribe of) Thamud,
[50.13] And (the tribe of) A'ad, and Pharaoh, and the brethren
[50.14] And the dwellers in the wood, and the folk of Tubb'a:
every one denied their messengers, therefor My threat took
[50.15] Were We then worn out by the first creation ? Yet they
are in doubt about a new creation.
[50.16] We verily created man and We know what his soul
whispereth to him, and We are nearer to him than his jugular
[50.17] When the two Receivers receive (him), seated on the
right hand and on the left,
[50.18] He uttereth no word but there is with him an observer
[50.19] And the agony of death cometh in truth. (And it is said
unto him): This is that which thou wast wont to shun.
[50.20] And the trumpet is blown. This is the threatened Day.
[50.21] And every soul cometh, along with it a driver and a
[50.22] (And unto the evil-doer it is said): Thou wast in
heedlessness of this. Now We have removed from thee thy
covering, and piercing is thy sight this day.
[50.23] And (unto the evil-doer) his comrade saith: This is that
which I have ready (as testimony).
[50.24] (And it is said): Do ye twain hurl to hell each rebel
[50.25] Hinderer of good, transgressor, doubter,
[50.26] Who setteth up another god along with Allah. Do ye twain
hurl him to the dreadful doom.
[50.27] His comrade saith: Our Lord! I did not cause him to
rebel, but he was (himself) far gone in error.
[50.28] He saith: Contend not in My presence, when I had already
proffered unto you the warning.
[50.29] The sentence that cometh from Me cannot be changed, and
I am in no wise a tyrant unto the slaves.
[50.30] On the day when We say unto hell: Art thou filled ? and
it saith: Can there be more to come ?
[50.31] And the Garden is brought nigh for those who kept from
evil, no longer distant.
[50.32] (And it is said): This is that which ye were promised.
(It is) for every penitent and heedful one,
[50.33] Who feareth the Beneficent in secret and cometh with a
[50.34] Enter it in peace. This is the day of immortality.
[50.35] There they have all that they desire, and there is more
[50.36] And how many a generation We destroyed before them, who
were mightier than these in prowess so that they overran the
lands! Had they any place of refuge (when the judgment came) ?
[50.37] Lo! therein verily is a reminder for him who hath a
heart, or giveth ear with full intelligence.
[50.38] And verily We created the heavens and the earth, and all
that is between them, in six Days, and naught of weariness
[50.39] Therefor (O Muhammad) bear with what they say, and hymn
the praise of thy Lord before the rising and before the setting
of the sun;
[50.40] And in the night-time hymn His praise, and after the
[50.41] And listen on the day when the crier crieth from a near
[50.42] The day when they will hear the (Awful) Cry in truth.
That is the day of coming forth (from the graves).
[50.43] Lo! We it is Who quicken and give death, and unto Us is
[50.44] On the day when the earth splitteth asunder from them,
hastening forth (they come). That is a gathering easy for Us (to
[50.45] We are Best Aware of what they say, and thou (O
Muhammad) art in no wise a compeller over them. But warn by the
Qur'an him who feareth My threat.
