50:1  Qaf By the glorious Quran
50:2  But the disbelievers are amazed that a warner has come from among them and they say, ‘How strange
50:3  To come back [to life] after we have died and become dust? That is too farfetched.’
50:4  We know very well what the earth takes away from them: We keep a comprehensive record
50:5  But the disbelievers deny the truth when it comes to them; they are in a state of confusion
50:6  Do they not see the sky above them––how We have built and adorned it, with no rifts in it
50:7  how We spread out the earth and put solid mountains on it, and caused every kind of joyous plant to grow in it
50:8  as a lesson and reminder for every servant who turns to God
50:9  and how We send blessed water down from the sky and grow with it gardens, the harvest grain
50:10  and tall palm trees laden with clusters of dates
50:11  as a provision for everyone; how with water We give [new] life to a land that is dead? This is how the dead will emerge [from their graves]
50:12  The people of Noah disbelieved long before these disbelievers, as did the people of Rass, Thamud
50:13  Ad, Pharaoh, Lot
50:14  the Forest-Dwellers, Tubba: all of these people disbelieved their messengers, and so My warning was realized
50:15  So were We incapable of the first creation? No indeed! Yet they doubt a second creation
50:16  We created man––We know what his soul whispers to him: We are closer to him than his jugular vein–&ndash
50:17  with two receptors set to record, one on his right side and one on his left
50:18  he does not utter a single word without an ever-present watcher
50:19  The trance of death will bring the Truth with it: ‘This is what you tried to escape.’
50:20  The Trumpet will be sounded: ‘This is the Day [you were] warned of.’
50:21  Each person will arrive attended by an [angel] to drive him on and another to bear witness
50:22  ‘You paid no attention to this [Day]; but today We have removed your veil and your sight is sharp.’
50:23  The person’s attendant will say, ‘Here is what I have prepared’
50:24  ‘Hurl every obstinate disbeliever into Hell
50:25  everyone who hindered good, was aggressive, caused others to doubt
50:26  and set up other gods alongside God. Hurl him into severe punishment!’
50:27  and his [evil] companion will say, ‘Lord, I did not make him transgress; he had already gone far astray himself.’
50:28  God will say, ‘Do not argue in My presence. I sent you a warnin
50:29  and My word cannot be changed: I am not unjust to any creature.’
50:30  We shall say to Hell on that day, ‘Are you full?’ and it will reply, ‘Are there no more?’
50:31  But Paradise will be brought close to the righteous and will no longer be distant
50:32  ‘This is what you were promised––this is for everyone who turned often to God and kept Him in mind
50:33  who held the Most Gracious in awe, though He is unseen, who comes before Him with a heart turned to Him in devotion
50:34  so enter it in peace. This is the Day of everlasting Life.’
50:35  They will have all that they wish for there, and We have more for them
50:36  We have destroyed even mightier generations before these disbelievers, who travelled through [many] lands- was there any escape
50:37  There truly is a reminder in this for whoever has a heart, whoever listens attentively
50:38  We created the heavens, the earth, and everything between, in six Days without tiring
50:39  So [Prophet], bear everything they say with patience; celebrate the praise of your Lord before the rising and setting of the sun
50:40  proclaim His praise in the night and at the end of every prayer
50:41  listen out for the Day when the caller will call from a nearby place
50:42  They will come out [from their graves] on that Day, the Day when they hear the mighty blast in reality
50:43  It is We who give life and death; the final return will be to U
50:44  on the Day when the earth will be torn apart, letting them rush out- that gathering will be easy for Us
50:45  We know best what the disbelievers say. You [Prophet] are not there to force them, so remind, with this Quran, those who fear My warning
