50:1  Qaf: By the Glorious Qur'an (Thou art Allah's Messenger)
50:2  But 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 die and become dust, (shall we live again?) That is a (sort of) return far (from our understanding)."
50:4  We already know how much of them the earth takes away: With Us is a record guarding (the full account)
50:5  But they deny the Truth when it comes to them: so they are in a confused state
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 set thereon mountains standing firm, and produced therein every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs)
50:8  To be observed and commemorated by every devotee turning (to Allah)
50:9  And We send down from the sky rain charted with blessing, and We produce therewith gardens and Grain for harvests
50:10  And tall (and stately) palm-trees, with shoots of fruit-stalks, piled one over another;
50:11  As sustenance for (Allah's) Servants;- and We give (new) life therewith to land that is dead: Thus will be the Resurrection
50:12  Before them was denied (the Hereafter) by the People of Noah, the Companions of the Rass, the Thamud
50:13  The 'Ad, Pharaoh, the brethren of Lut
50:14  The Companions of the Wood, and the People of Tubba'; each one (of them) rejected the messengers, and My warning was duly fulfilled (in them)
50:15  Were We then weary with the first Creation, that they should be in confused doubt about a new Creation
50:16  It was We Who created man, and We know what dark suggestions his soul makes to him: for We are nearer to him than (his) jugular vein
50:17  Behold, two (guardian angels) appointed to learn (his doings) learn (and noted them), one sitting on the right and one on the left
50:18  Not a word does he utter but there is a sentinel by him, ready (to note it)
50:19  And the stupor of death will bring Truth (before his eyes): "This was the thing which thou wast trying to escape!"
50:20  And the Trumpet shall be blown: that will be the Day whereof Warning (had been given)
50:21  And there will come forth every soul: with each will be an (angel) to drive, and an (angel) to bear witness
50:22  (It will be said:) "Thou wast heedless of this; now have We removed thy veil, and sharp is thy sight this Day!"
50:23  And his Companion will say: "Here is (his Record) ready with me!"
50:24  (The sentence will be:) "Throw, throw into Hell every contumacious Rejecter (of Allah)!
50:25  "Who forbade what was good, transgressed all bounds, cast doubts and suspicions
50:26  "Who set up another god beside Allah: Throw him into a severe penalty."
50:27  His Companion will say: "Our Lord! I did not make him transgress, but he was (himself) far astray."
50:28  He will say: "Dispute not with each other in My Presence: I had already in advance sent you Warning
50:29  "The Word changes not before Me, and I do not the least injustice to My Servants."
50:30  One Day We will ask Hell, "Art thou filled to the full?" It will say, "Are there any more (to come)?"
50:31  And the Garden will be brought nigh to the Righteous,- no more a thing distant
50:32  (A voice will say:) "This is what was promised for you,- for every one who turned (to Allah) in sincere repentance, who kept (His Law)
50:33  "Who feared (Allah) Most Gracious Unseen, and brought a heart turned in devotion (to Him)
50:34  "Enter ye therein in Peace and Security; this is a Day of Eternal Life!"
50:35  There will be for them therein all that they wish,- and more besides in Our Presence
50:36  But how many generations before them did We destroy (for their sins),- stronger in power than they? Then did they wander through the land: was there any place of escape (for them)
50:37  Verily in this is a Message for any that has a heart and understanding or who gives ear and earnestly witnesses (the truth)
50:38  We created the heavens and the earth and all between them in Six Days, nor did any sense of weariness touch Us
50:39  Bear, then, with patience, all that they say, and celebrate the praises of thy Lord, before the rising of the sun and before (its) setting
50:40  And during part of the night, (also,) celebrate His praises, and (so likewise) after the postures of adoration
50:41  And listen for the Day when the Caller will call out from a place quite near,
50:42  The Day when they will hear a (mighty) Blast in (very) truth: that will be the Day of Resurrection
50:43  Verily it is We Who give Life and Death; and to Us is the Final Goal
50:44  The Day when the Earth will be rent asunder, from (men) hurrying out: that will be a gathering together,- quite easy for Us
50:45  We know best what they say; and thou art not one to overawe them by force. So admonish with the Qur'an such as fear My Warning
