Book 50


Qaf

In the name of Allah,
the Beneficent,
the Merciful.

[50.1]

Qaf.
I swear by the glorious Quran (that Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah. )

[50.2]

Nay!
they wonder that there has come to them a warner from among themselves,
so the unbelievers say:
This is a wonderful thing:

[50.3]

What!
when we are dead and have become dust?
That is afar (from probable) return.

[50.4]

We know indeed what the earth diminishes of them,
and with Us is a writing that preserves.

[50.5]

Nay,
they rejected the truth when it came to them,
so they are (now) in a state of confusion.

[50.6]

Do they not then look up to heaven above them how We have made it and adorned it and it has no gaps?

[50.7]

And the earth,
We have made it plain and cast in it mountains and We have made to grow therein of all beautiful kinds,

[50.8]

To give sight and as a reminder to every servant who turns frequently (to Allah).

[50.9]

And We send down from the cloud water abounding in good,
then We cause to grow thereby gardens and the grain that is reaped,

[50.10]

And the tall palm-trees having spadices closely set one above another,

[50.11]

A sustenance for the servants,
and We give life thereby to a dead land;
thus is the rising.

[50.12]

(Others) before them rejected (prophets):
the people of Nuh and the dwellers of Ar-Rass and Samood,

[50.13]

And Ad and Firon and Lut's brethren,

[50.14]

And the dwellers of the grove and the people of Tuba;
all rejected the apostles,
so My threat came to pass.

[50.15]

Were We then fatigued with the first creation?
Yet are they in doubt with regard to a new creation.

[50.16]

And certainly We created man,
and We know what his mind suggests to him,
and We are nearer to him than his life-vein.

[50.17]

When the two receivers receive,
sitting on the right and on the left.

[50.18]

He utters not a word but there is by him a watcher at hand.

[50.19]

And the stupor of death will come in truth;
that is what you were trying to escape.

[50.20]

And the trumpet shall be blown;
that is the day of the threatening.

[50.21]

And every soul shall come,
with it a driver and a witness.

[50.22]

Certainly you were heedless of it,
but now We have removed from you your veil,
so your sight today is sharp.

[50.23]

And his companions shall say:
This is what is ready with me.

[50.24]

Do cast into hell every ungrateful,
rebellious one,

[50.25]

Forbidder of good,
exceeder of limits,
doubter,

[50.26]

Who sets up another god with Allah,
so do cast him into severe chastisement.

[50.27]

His companion will say:
Our Lord!
I did not lead him into inordinacy but he himself was in a great error.

[50.28]

He will say:
Do not quarrel in My presence,
and indeed I gave you the threatening beforehand:

[50.29]

My word shall not be changed,
nor am I in the least unjust to the servants.

[50.30]

On the day that We will say to hell:
Are you filled up?
And it will say:
Are there any more?

[50.31]

And the garden shall be brought near to those who guard (against evil),
not far off:

[50.32]

This is what you were promised,
(it is) for every one who turns frequently (to Allah),
keeps (His limits);

[50.33]

Who fears the Beneficent God in secret and comes with a penitent heart:

[50.34]

Enter it in peace,
that is the day of abiding.

[50.35]

They have therein what they wish and with Us is more yet.

[50.36]

And how many a generation did We destroy before them who were mightier in prowess than they,
so they went about and about in the lands.
Is there a place of refuge?

[50.37]

Most surely there is a reminder in this for him who has a heart or he gives ear and is a witness.

[50.38]

And certainly We created the heavens and the earth and what is between them in six periods and there touched Us not any fatigue.

[50.39]

Therefore be patient of what they say,
and sing the praise of your Lord before the rising of the sun and before the setting.

[50.40]

And glorify Him in the night and after the prayers.

[50.41]
And listen on the day when the crier shall cry from a near place

[50.42]

The day when they shall hear the cry in truth;
that is the day of coming forth.

[50.43]

Surely We give life and cause to die,
and to Us is the eventual coming;

[50.44]

The day on which the earth shall cleave asunder under them,
they will make haste;
that is a gathering together easy to Us.

[50.45]

We know best what they say,
and you are not one to compel them;
therefore remind him by means of the Quran who fears My threat.
