Hamid S. Aziz rendition of Surah The Letter Qaf(Qaf)
50:1 Qaf. I swear by the glorious Quran (that Muhammad is the Messenger 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 (shall we live again)? That is a far return (or far from probable or from our understanding)."
50:4 We know indeed what the earth diminishes (or takes) from them (excreta or dead bodies), and with Us is a Preserved Record (or the record is preserved).
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 (rifts or flaws)?
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 As a vision (observation or spectacle) and a reminder to every penitent servant (for his delight or awe and instruction).
50:9 And We send down from the cloud water abounding in good (or blessings), then We cause to grow therewith gardens and the grain that is reaped,
50:10 And the lofty palm-trees with fruit spikes closely set one above another,
50:11 A sustenance for the servants (of Allah), and We give life thereby to a dead land; thus is the Resurrection.
50:12 Others before them rejected (these ideas or the Prophets): the people of Noah and the dwellers of Ar-Rass and Thamud,
50:13 And A´ad and Pharaoh and Lot´s brethren,
50:14 And the dwellers of the Wood (Midian) and the people of Tubba; all rejected the messengers. Therefore, My threat came to pass.
50:15 Were We then fatigued with (did We need rest after) 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 soul suggests to him, and We are nearer to him than his life-vein (Jugular and Carotid).
50:17 When the two Receivers receive him, sitting on the right and on the left.
50:18 He utters not a word but there is by him a watcher (sentinel, one who censors) at hand.
50:19 And the stupor of death will bring truth; that is what you were trying to escape.
50:20 And the Trumpet shall be blown; that is the day about which warning had been given.
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, and piercing is your sight this day.
50:23 And his companions (the Driver and the Witness) shall say, "Here (his Record) is ready with me.
50:24 "So 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; cast him into severe chastisement."
50:27 His companion will say, "Our Lord! I did not lead him into transgression but he himself was in great error."
50:28 He will say, "Do not quarrel in My presence, and indeed I gave you the warning beforehand:
50:29 "My word shall not be changed, nor am I in the least unjust to My 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 turned (to Allah or was repentant), and kept His limits (or Law);
50:33 Who fears the Beneficent One in secret (or unseen or inwardly) and comes with a penitent (or devoted) heart:
50:34 "Enter you therein in peace, this is the day of Eternal Life (or Immortality)."
50:35 They have therein all that they wish and with Us is even more.
50:36 And how many a generation did We destroy before them who were mightier in prowess than they. Then they wander through (or overrun) the land; but was there for them a place of refuge (when the Judgment came)?
50:37 Most surely there is a reminder in this for him who has a heart or he gives ear and is a witness (or understands intelligently).
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 (Allah required no rest).
50:39 Therefore be patient of what they say, and sing the praise of your Lord before the rising of the sun and before its setting.
50:40 And glorify Him in the night and after the prescribed prostrations.
50:41 And listen for the Day when the Caller shall cry from a near place.
50:42 The Day when they shall hear the Call (or Cry or Blast) in truth; that is the day of coming forth.
50:43 Surely We give life and cause to die, and to Us is the final destination (or goal).
50:44 The day on which the earth shall be rent asunder from under them, they will hasten forth; that will be a gathering together easy to Us.
50:45 We know best what they say, and you (O Muhammad) are not one to compel them; but admonish by means of the Quran him who fears My warning.
