Qaaf - The letter Qaaf

50:1 Qaf. By the Glorious Qur'an,
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 thereon,
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 of Lot,
50:14 And the dwellers in the wood, and the folk of Tubb'a: every one denied their messengers, therefor My threat took effect.
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 vein.
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 ready.
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 witness.
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 ingrate,
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 contrite heart.
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 with Us.
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 touched Us.
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 (prescribed) prostrations.
50:41 And listen on the day when the crier crieth from a near place,
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 the journeying.
50:44 On the day when the earth splitteth asunder from them, hastening forth (they come). That is a gathering easy for Us (to make).
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.
