50:1Qaf. By the Glorious Quran.

50:2They marveled that a warner has come to them from among them. The disbelievers say, “This is something strange.

50:3When we have died and become dust? This is a farfetched return.”

50:4We know what the earth consumes of them, and with Us is a comprehensive book.

50:5But they denied the truth when it has come to them, so they are in a confused state.

50:6Have they not observed the sky above them, how We constructed it, and decorated it, and it has no cracks?

50:7And the earth, how We spread it out, and set on it mountains, and grew in it all kinds of delightful pairs?

50:8A lesson and a reminder for every penitent worshiper.

50:9And We brought down from the sky blessed water, and produced with it gardens and grain to harvest.

50:10And the soaring palm trees, with clustered dates.

50:11As sustenance for the servants. And We revive thereby a dead town. Likewise is the resurrection.

50:12Before them the people of Noah denied the truth, and so did the dwellers of Russ, and Thamood.

50:13And Aad, and Pharaoh, and the brethren of Lot.

50:14And the Dwellers of the Woods, and the people of Tubba. They all rejected the messengers, so My threat came true.

50:15Were We fatigued by the first creation? But they are in doubt of a new creation.

50:16We created the human being, and We know what his soul whispers to him. We are nearer to him than his jugular vein.

50:17As the two receivers receive, seated to the right and to the left.

50:18Not a word does he utter, but there is a watcher by him, ready.

50:19The daze of death has come in truth: “This is what you tried to evade.”

50:20And the Trumpet is blown: “This is the Promised Day.”

50:21And every soul will come forward, accompanied by a driver and a witness.

50:22“You were in neglect of this, so We lifted your screen from you, and your vision today is keen.”

50:23And His escort will say, “This is what I have ready with me.”

50:24“Throw into Hell every stubborn disbeliever.

50:25Preventer of good, aggressor, doubter.

50:26Who fabricated another god with God; toss him into the intense agony.”

50:27His escort will say, “Our Lord, I did not make him rebel, but he was far astray.”

50:28He will say, “Do not feud in My presence—I had warned you in advance.

50:29The decree from Me will not be changed, and I am not unjust to the servants.”

50:30On the Day when We will say to Hell, “Are you full?” And it will say, “Are there any more?”

50:31And Paradise will be brought closer to the pious, not far away.

50:32“This is what you were promised—for every careful penitent.

50:33Who inwardly feared the Most Gracious, and came with a repentant heart.

50:34Enter it in peace. This is the Day of Eternity.”

50:35Therein they will have whatever they desire—and We have even more.

50:36How many generations before them, who were more powerful than they, did We destroy? They explored the lands—was there any escape?

50:37In that is a reminder for whoever possesses a heart, or cares to listen and witness.

50:38We created the heavens and the earth and what is between them in six days, and no fatigue touched Us.

50:39So endure what they say, and proclaim the praises of your Lord before the rising of the sun, and before sunset.

50:40And glorify Him during the night, and at the end of devotions.

50:41And listen for the Day when the caller calls from a nearby place.

50:42The Day when they will hear the Shout in all truth. That is the Day of Emergence.

50:43It is We who control life and death, and to Us is the destination.

50:44The Day when the earth will crack for them at once. That is an easy gathering for Us.

50:45We are fully aware of what they say, and you are not a dictator over them. So remind by the Quran whoever fears My warning.
