50:6  Do they not look at the sky above them, how WE have made it and adorned it, and there are no flaws in it
50:7  And the earth - WE have spread it out, and placed therein firm mountains; and WE have made to grow therein every kind of beautiful species

50:9  And WE send down from the clouds water which is full of blessings, and WE produce therewith gardens and crops

50:15  Were WE then wearied by the first creation? Nay, but they are in confusion about the new creation
50:16  And assuredly, WE have created man and WE know what his mind whispers to him, and WE are nearer to him than even his jugular vein

50:20  And the trumpet shall be blown. That will be the Day of Promise
50:21  And every soul shall come forth and along with it there will be an angel to bear witness

50:23  And his companion will say, `This is what I have ready of his record.
50:24  WE shall say to his two companions, cast ye twain into Hell every disbelieving enemy of truth
50:25  Hinderer of good, transgressor, doubter
50:26  `Who sets up another god beside ALLAH, so do, ye twain, cast him into the severe torment.
50:27  His associate will say, `O Lord, it was not that I caused him to rebel; but he himself was too far gone in error.
50:28  ALLAH will say, `Quarrel not in MY presence; I gave you the warning beforehand
50:29  `The sentenced passed by ME cannot be changed, and I am not in the least unjust to MY servants.
50:30  On that day WE will say to Hell, `Art thou filled up?' And it will answer, `Are there any more?
50:31  And Heaven will be brought near to the righteous, no longer remote
50:32  And it will be said, `This is what was promised to you -to every one who constantly turned to God and was watchful of his actions

50:37  Therein, verily, is a reminder for him who has an understanding heart, or, who gives ear and is attentive
50:38  And, verily, WE created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them in six periods and no weariness touched US
50:39  So bear with patience what they say, and celebrate the praises of thy Lord, before the rising of the sun and before its setting

50:44  On the day when the earth will cleave asunder and in consequence of their misdeeds they will come forth hastening - that will be a raising up of the dead easy for US
50:45  WE know best what they say; and thou art not to compel them in any way. So admonish, by means of the Qur'an, him who fears MY warning
