Arthur John Arberry rendition of Surah The Letter Qaf(Qaf)
---
50:1 Qaf. By the glorious Koran!
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 kind
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 harvest
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?
50:37 Surely in that there is a reminder to him who has a heart, or will give ear with a present mind.
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.
