Surah Qaf (50)
50 : 1
Qaf. By the honored Qur'an...
50 : 2
But they wonder that there has come to them a warner from among themselves, and the disbelievers say, "This is an amazing thing.
50 : 3
When we have died and have become dust, [we will return to life]? That is a distant return."
50 : 4
We know what the earth diminishes of them, and with Us is a retaining record.
50 : 5
But they denied the truth when it came to them, so they are in a confused condition.
50 : 6
Have they not looked at the heaven above them - how We structured it and adorned it and [how] it has no rifts?
50 : 7
And the earth - We spread it out and cast therein firmly set mountains and made grow therein [something] of every beautiful kind,
50 : 8
Giving insight and a reminder for every servant who turns [to Allah].
50 : 9
And We have sent down blessed rain from the sky and made grow thereby gardens and grain from the harvest
50 : 10
And lofty palm trees having fruit arranged in layers -
50 : 11
As provision for the servants, and We have given life thereby to a dead land. Thus is the resurrection.
50 : 12
The people of Noah denied before them, and the companions of the well and Thamud
50 : 13
And 'Aad and Pharaoh and the brothers of Lot
50 : 14
And the companions of the thicket and the people of Tubba'. All denied the messengers, so My threat was justly fulfilled.
50 : 15
Did We fail in the first creation? But they are in confusion over a new creation.
50 : 16
And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein
50 : 17
When the two receivers receive, seated on the right and on the left.
50 : 18
Man does not utter any word except that with him is an observer prepared [to record].
50 : 19
And the intoxication of death will bring the truth; that is what you were trying to avoid.
50 : 20
And the Horn will be blown. That is the Day of [carrying out] the threat.
50 : 21
And every soul will come, with it a driver and a witness.
50 : 22
[It will be said], "You were certainly in unmindfulness of this, and We have removed from you your cover, so your sight, this Day, is sharp."
50 : 23
And his companion, [the angel], will say, "This [record] is what is with me, prepared."
50 : 24
[Allah will say], "Throw into Hell every obstinate disbeliever,
50 : 25
Preventer of good, aggressor, and doubter,
50 : 26
Who made [as equal] with Allah another deity; then throw him into the severe punishment."
50 : 27
His [devil] companion will say, "Our Lord, I did not make him transgress, but he [himself] was in extreme error."
50 : 28
[Allah] will say, "Do not dispute before Me, while I had already presented to you the warning.
50 : 29
The word will not be changed with Me, and never will I be unjust to the servants."
50 : 30
On the Day We will say to Hell, "Have you been filled?" and it will say, "Are there some more,"
50 : 31
And Paradise will be brought near to the righteous, not far,
50 : 32
[It will be said], "This is what you were promised - for every returner [to Allah] and keeper [of His covenant]
50 : 33
Who feared the Most Merciful unseen and came with a heart returning [in repentance].
50 : 34
Enter it in peace. This is the Day of Eternity."
50 : 35
They will have whatever they wish therein, and with Us is more.
50 : 36
And how many a generation before them did We destroy who were greater than them in [striking] power and had explored throughout the lands. Is there any place of escape?
50 : 37
Indeed in that is a reminder for whoever has a heart or who listens while he is present [in mind].
50 : 38
And We did certainly create the heavens and earth and what is between them in six days, and there touched Us no weariness.
50 : 39
So be patient, [O Muhammad], over what they say and exalt [Allah] with praise of your Lord before the rising of the sun and before its setting,
50 : 40
And [in part] of the night exalt Him and after prostration.
50 : 41
And listen on the Day when the Caller will call out from a place that is near -
50 : 42
The Day they will hear the blast [of the Horn] in truth. That is the Day of Emergence [from the graves].
50 : 43
Indeed, it is We who give life and cause death, and to Us is the destination
50 : 44
On the Day the earth breaks away from them [and they emerge] rapidly; that is a gathering easy for Us.
50 : 45
We are most knowing of what they say, and you are not over them a tyrant. But remind by the Qur'an whoever fears My threat.
