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
