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.
