50:2  Nay, but they marvel that a warner has come to them from among them; and the unbelievers say, 'This is a marvellous thing
50:3  What, when we are dead and become dust? That is a far returning!
50:4  We know what the earth diminishes of them; with Us is a book recording
50:5  Nay, but they cried lies to the truth when it came to them, and so they are in a case confused
50:6  What, have they not beheld heaven above them, how We have built it, and decked it out fair, and it has no cracks
50:7  And the earth -- We stretched it forth, and cast on it firm mountains, and We caused to grow therein of every joyous kin
50:8  for an insight and a reminder to every penitent servant
50:9  And We sent down out of heaven water blessed, and caused to grow thereby gardens and grain of harves
50:10  and tall palm-trees with spathes compact
50:11  a provision for the servants, and thereby We revived a land that was dead. Even so is the coming forth
50:12  Cried lies before them the people of Noah and the men of Er-Rass, and Thamood
50:13  and Ad and Pharaoh, the brothers of Lot
50:14  the men of the Thicket, the people of Tubba'. Every one cried lies to the Messengers, and My threat came true
50:15  What, were We wearied by the first creation? No indeed; but they are in uncertainty as to the new creation
50:16  We indeed created man; and We know what his soul whispers within him, and We are nearer to him than the jugular vein
50:17  When the two angels meet together, sitting one on the right, and one on the left
50:18  not a word he utters, but by him is an observer ready
50:19  And death's agony comes in truth; that is what thou wast shunning
50:20  And the Trumpet shall be blown; that is the Day of the Threat
50:21  And every soul shall come, and with it a driver and a witness
50:22  'Thou wast heedless of this; therefore We have now removed from thee thy covering, and so thy sight today is piercing.
50:23  And his comrade shall say, 'This is what I have, made ready.
50:24  'Cast, you twain, into Gehenna every froward unbeliever
50:25  every hinderer of the good, transgressor, disquieter
50:26  who set up with God another god; therefore, you twain, cast him into the terrible chastisement.
50:27  And his comrade shall say, 'Our Lord, I made him not insolent, but he was in far error.
50:28  He shall say, 'Dispute not before Me! For I sent you beforehand -- the threat
50:29  The Word is not changed with Me; I wrong not My servants.
50:30  Upon the day We shall say unto Gehenna, 'Art thou filled?' And it shall say, 'Are there any more to come?
50:31  And Paradise shall be brought forward to the godfearing, not afar
50:32  'This is that you were promised; it is for every mindful penitent.
50:33  Whosoever fears the All-merciful in the Unseen, and comes with a penitent heart
50:34  'Enter it in peace! This is the Day of Eternity.
50:35  Therein they shall have whatever they will; and with Us there is yet more
50:36  How many a generation We destroyed before them that was stronger in valour than they, then they searched about in the land; was there any asylum

50:38  We created the heavens and the earth, and what between them is, in six days, and no weariness touched Us
50:39  So be thou patient under what they say, and proclaim thy Lord's praise before the rising of the sun, and before its setting
50:40  and proclaim thy Lord's praise in the night, and at the ends of the prostrations
50:41  And listen thou for the day when the caller shall call from a near place
50:42  On the day they hear the Cry in truth, that is the day of coming forth
50:43  It is We who give life, and make to die, and to Us is the homecoming
50:44  Upon the day when the earth is split asunder from about them as they hasten forth; that is a mustering easy for Us
50:45  We know very well what they say; thou art not a tyrant over them. Therefore remind by the Koran him who fears My threat
