Wahiduddin Khan rendition of Surah The Letter Qaf(Qaf)
50:1 Qaf By the glorious Quran!
50:2 Indeed, they are astonished that a warner should have come to them from among themselves. So these deniers of the truth say, This is indeed a strange thing,
50:3 to come back to life after we have died and become dust? That is most improbable!
50:4 We know very well what the earth takes away from them: We hold a book which records all things.
50:5 But they denied the truth when it came to them, so they are in a state of confusion.
50:6 Have they not observed the sky above them and marked how We have built it and adorned it, leaving no flaws in it;
50:7 We spread out the earth and set upon it solid mountains and We brought forth from it all kinds of delightful plants,
50:8 as a lesson and reminder for every human being who turns to God;
50:9 and We have sent down from the sky blessed water with which We have brought forth gardens and grain to be harvested,
50:10 and tall palm-trees with their thickly-clustered dates,
50:11 as a provision for human beings; and by [all] this We bring dead land to life. Such shall be the Resurrection.
50:12 Before them, the people of Noah and the people of Rass denied this truth; and so did the people of Thamud.
50:13 And the tribe of Ad, and Pharaoh, and the brethren of Lot,
50:14 and the dwellers of the Wood, and the people of Tubba: every one denied their messengers, and so My warning came true.
50:15 Were We then worn out by the first creation? Yet they are in doubt about a second creation.
50:16 We created man We know the promptings of his soul, and are closer to him than his jugular vein
50:17 and the two recording angels are recording, sitting on the right and the left:
50:18 each word he utters shall be noted down by a vigilant guardian.
50:19 The trance of death will come revealing the truth: that is what you were trying 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 were heedless of this, but now We have removed your veil, so your sight today is sharp.
50:23 His companion attendant will say, I have here his record ready.
50:24 Cast into Hell every ungrateful, rebellious one,
50:25 hinderer of good, transgressor, causing others to doubt,
50:26 who has set up another god besides God: cast him into severe punishment
50:27 and his associate [Satan] will say, Lord, I did not make him transgress, he had already gone far astray himself.
50:28 God will say, Do not quarrel in My presence. I gave you the warning beforehand
50:29 and My word shall not be changed, nor am I unjust to My servants.
50:30 On that Day, We shall ask Hell, Are you now full? Hell will answer, Are there any more?
50:31 Paradise will be brought near to the righteous and will no longer be far away.
50:32 This is what you were promisedthis is for everyone who often turned to God and kept Him in mind,
50:33 who fears the Compassionate One, though He is unseen, and comes to Him with a penitent heart;
50:34 so enter it in peace. This is the Day of everlasting life.
50:35 There they shall have all that they desire, and there is even more with Us.
50:36 How many a generation, far greater in prowess, have We destroyed before them! They searched the entire land: but could they find a refuge?
50:37 There is truly a reminder in this for whoever has a heart, whoever listens attentively.
50:38 We created the heavens, the earth, and everything between them in six days [periods] nor were We ever wearied.
50:39 So bear with patience what they say, and glorify your Lord with His praise, before the rising and before the setting of the sun;
50:40 proclaim His praise in the night and at the end of every prayer.
50:41 Hearken! The Day when the caller will call from near.
50:42 The Day when men will hear the fateful cry, they will rise up [from their graves].
50:43 Truly, it is We who give life and cause death, and to Us shall all return
50:44 on the Day the earth will be rent asunder over them, and from it they shall emerge in haste. To assemble them all is easy enough for Us.
50:45 We know best what those who deny the truth say. You are not there to force them: so remind, with this Quran, those who fear My warning.
