Shakir 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? That is afar (from probable) return.
50:4 We know indeed what the earth diminishes of them, and with Us is a writing that preserves.
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?
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 To give sight and as a reminder to every servant who turns frequently (to Allah).
50:9 And We send down from the cloud water abounding in good, then We cause to grow thereby gardens and the grain that is reaped,
50:10 And the tall palm-trees having spadices closely set one above another,
50:11 A sustenance for the servants, and We give life thereby to a dead land; thus is the rising.
50:12 (Others) before them rejected (prophets): the people of Nuh and the dwellers of Ar-Rass and Samood,
50:13 And Ad and Firon and Lut's brethren,
50:14 And the dwellers of the grove and the people of Tuba; all rejected the messengers, so My threat came to pass.
50:15 Were We then fatigued with 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 mind suggests to him, and We are nearer to him than his life-vein.
50:17 When the two receivers receive, sitting on the right and on the left.
50:18 He utters not a word but there is by him a watcher at hand.
50:19 And the stupor of death will come in truth; that is what you were trying to escape.
50:20 And the trumpet shall be blown; that is the day of the threatening.
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, so your sight today is sharp.
50:23 And his companions shall say: This is what is ready with me.
50:24 Do 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, so do cast him into severe chastisement.
50:27 His companion will say: Our Lord! I did not lead him into inordinacy but he himself was in a great error.
50:28 He will say: Do not quarrel in My presence, and indeed I gave you the threatening beforehand:
50:29 My word shall not be changed, nor am I in the least unjust to the 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 turns frequently (to Allah), keeps (His limits);
50:33 Who fears the Beneficent Allah in secret and comes with a penitent heart:
50:34 Enter it in peace, that is the day of abiding.
50:35 They have therein what they wish and with Us is more yet.
50:36 And how many a generation did We destroy before them who were mightier in prowess than they, so they went about and about in the lands. Is there a place of refuge?
50:37 Most surely there is a reminder in this for him who has a heart or he gives ear and is a witness.
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.
50:39 Therefore be patient of what they say, and sing the praise of your Lord before the rising of the sun and before the setting.
50:40 And glorify Him in the night and after the prayers.
50:41 And listen on the day when the crier shall cry from a near place
50:42 The day when they shall hear the cry in truth; that is the day of coming forth.
50:43 Surely We give life and cause to die, and to Us is the eventual coming;
50:44 The day on which the earth shall cleave asunder under them, they will make haste; that is a gathering together easy to Us.
50:45 We know best what they say, and you are not one to compel them; therefore remind him by means of the Quran who fears My threat.
