50:2  Verily they wonder that a preacher from among themselves is come unto them; and the unbelievers say, this is a wonderful thing
50:3  After we shall be dead, and become dust, shall we return to life? This is a return remote from thought
50:4  Now We know what the earth consumeth of them; and with Us is a book which keepeth an account thereof
50:5  But they charge falsehood on the truth, after it hath come unto them: Wherefore they are plunged in a confused business
50:6  Do they not look up to the heaven above them, and consider how We have raised it and adorned it; and that there are no flaws therein
50:7  We have also spread forth the earth, and thrown thereon mountains firmly rooted: And We cause every beautiful kind of vegetables to spring up therein
50:8  for a subject of meditation, and an admonition unto every man who turneth unto Us
50:9  And We send down rain as a blessing from heaven, whereby We cause gardens to spring forth, and the grain of harvest
50:10  and tall palm-trees having branches laden with dates hanging one above another
50:11  as a provision for mankind; and We thereby quicken a dead country: So shall be the coming forth of the dead from their graves
50:12  The people of Noah, and those who dwelt at Al Rass, and Thamud, and Ad, and Pharaoh accused the prophets of imposture before the Meccans
50:13  and also the brethren of Lot
50:14  and the inhabitants of the wood near Midian, and the people of Tobba: All these accused the apostles of imposture; wherefore the judgments which I threatened were justly inflicted on them
50:15  Is our power exhausted by the first creation? Yea; they are in a perplexity, because of a new creation which is foretold them, namely, the raising of the dead
50:16  We created man, and We know what his soul whispereth within him; and We are nearer unto him than his jugular vein
50:17  When the two angels deputed to take account of a man's behaviour, take an account thereof; one sitting on the right hand, and the other on the left
50:18  He uttereth not a word, but there is with him a watcher, ready to note it
50:19  And the agony of death shall come in truth: This, O man, is what thou soughtest to avoid
50:20  And the trumpet shall sound: This will be the day which hath been threatened
50:21  And every soul shall come; and therewith shall be a driver and a witness
50:22  And the former shall say unto the unbeliever, thou wast negligent heretofore of this day: But we have removed thy veil from off thee; and thy sight is become piercing this day
50:23  And his companion shall say, this is what is ready with me to be attested
50:24  And God shall say, cast into hell every unbeliever, and perverse person
50:25  and every one who forbad good, and every transgressor, and doubter of the faith
50:26  who set up another god with the true God; and cast him into a grievous torment
50:27  His companion shall say, O Lord, I did not seduce him; but he was in a wide error
50:28  God shall say, wrangle not in my presence: Since I threatened you before hand with the torments which ye now see prepared for you
50:29  The sentence is not changed with me: Neither do I treat my servants unjustly
50:30  On that day We will say unto hell, art thou full? And it shall answer, is there yet any addition
50:31  And paradise shall be brought near unto the pious
50:32  and it shall be said unto them, this is what ye have been promised; unto every one who turned himself unto God, and kept his commandments
50:33  who feared the Merciful in secret, and came unto Him with a converted heart
50:34  Enter the same in peace: This is the day of eternity
50:35  Therein shall they have whatever they shall desire; and there will be a superabundant addition of bliss with Us
50:36  How many generations have We destroyed before the Meccans, which were more mighty than they in strength? Pass, therefore, through the regions of the earth, and see whether there be any refuge from our vengeance
50:37  Verily herein is an admonition unto him who hath a heart to understand, or giveth ear, and is present with an attentive mind
50:38  We created the heavens and the earth, and whatever is between them, in six days; and no weariness affected us
50:39  Wherefore patiently suffer what they say; and celebrate the praise of thy Lord before sun-rise, and before sun-set
50:40  and praise Him in some part of the night: And perform the additional parts of worship
50:41  And hearken unto the day whereon the cryer shall call men to judgment from a near place
50:42  The day whereon they shall hear the voice of the trumpet in truth: This will be the day of mens coming forth from their graves
50:43  We give life, and We cause to die; and unto Us shall be the return of all creatures
50:44  The day whereon the earth shall suddenly cleave in sunder over them. This will be an assembly easy for us to assemble
50:45  We well know what the unbelievers say; and thou art not sent to compel them forcibly to the faith. Wherefore warn, by the Koran, him who feareth my threatening
