Mohammad Shafi rendition of Surah The Letter Qaf(Qaf)
---
50:1 Qaf. By the Glorious Qur'aan, [We swear its authenticity]!
50:2 But they wonder that there has come to them a Warner [from Allah] from among themselves. So the suppressors of the Truth say, "This is a strange thing!"
50:3 "What! When we die and have become dust, (shall we rise again to life?) That is a return far [from being ever possible]!"
50:4 We do know what the earth takes away from them. And with Us is a record protected!
50:5 But they deny the Truth when it comes to them. And so they are in a confused state of mind.
50:6 Do they not look at the sky above them — how We have made it and adorned it, and see that there are no cracks in it?
50:7 And We have spread out the earth and cast mountains into it. And We have caused every kind of beautiful spouse of herbage grow in it.
50:8 To be observed and commemorated by every devotee turning to Allah.
50:9 And We send down from the sky rain as a blessing, and We produce therewith gardens and seed for the harvest
50:10 And tall palm-trees, with shoots of fruit-stalks, piled one over another
50:11 A provision for (Allah's) subjects. And We give life therewith [with rain] to land that is dead. Thus will the coming out of the dead from their graves [Resurrection] be.
50:12 [Resurrection] was denied before them by the People of Noah, the Companions of the Rass, and the Thamood,
50:13 And of AAad, of Pharaoh, the brethren of Lot,
50:14 The Companions of the Wood, and the People of Tubba' (an ancient tribe) — all of them rejected the Messengers, and My warning (to them) was duly fulfilled.
50:15 Were We then weary with the first Creation that they should be in such a confused state of mind about a new Creation!?
50:16 And We did create man, and We know the promptings of his own self. And We are closer to him than any bodily channel having access into his brain.
50:17 When the two frequently confronting voices, one located on the right and one on the left, confront each other
50:18 He utters not a word but is there a sentinel by him, ready [to record it]!
50:19 And the pangs of death will bring the Truth home to him. "This was the thing you kept away from!"
50:20 And then the Trumpet is blown — there then is the Day promised!
50:21 And every soul comes forth accompanied by a driver and a witness.
50:22 "You were careless about this. Now that We have taken off your cover from you, strong is your eyesight this Day!"
50:23 And his Companion [witness] says, "It's ready here — what in my hand is [man's record]!"
50:24 "Throw into Hell every stubborn suppressor of evidence proving existence of Allah [with attributes as given in the Qur'aan]!"
50:25 "Who was forbidding what was good, transgressing all bounds, and casting doubts and suspicions."
50:26 "Who had set up other god/s besides Allah! So throw him into the severe punishment."
50:27 His Companion says, "Our Lord! I did not make him transgress, but he was (himself) gone far astray."
50:28 He [Allah] says, "Quarrel not in My Presence; and I did send you the warning in advance."
50:29 "No alteration in the Word with Me, and I am never unjust to My subjects."
50:30 That Day We ask Hell, "Are you full?" And it asks, "Are there any more?"
50:31 And the Garden [of Paradise] is brought near for the pious and righteous, and it is no longer a distant objective [for them.]
50:32 "This is what you were promised. [And this is what was promised] to every one who turned (to Allah in sincere repentance) and protected (himself against satanic influence.)
50:33 Who feared the Gracious One without physically seeing Him with worldly eyes, and has come with a mind turned in devotion (to Him).
50:34 "Enter therein [in Paradise] in Peace and Security; this is time of eternal life!"
50:35 There is for them therein all that they desire. And [there is besides] much more with Us.
50:36 And how many a generation before them, stronger in power than they, did We destroy! They had wandered through the lands in search of a place of escape!!
50:37 Certainly indeed in this is a lesson to learn for any who has an understanding mind or who lends an insightful ear.
50:38 We created the heavens and the earth and all things in between in six periods of time. And weariness did not even touch Us!
50:39 Have patience, then, over what they say, and glorify your Lord with praise, before the rising of the sun and before its setting.
50:40 And glorify Him during parts of the night, and post prostrations!
50:41 And listen the Day when the Caller calls out from a place quite near, —
50:42 The Day when they hear a real mighty Blast — that is the Day of Resurrection!
50:43 It is indeed We Who give life and cause death; and to Us is the final destination.
50:44 That Day the earth swiftly separates from them. That gathering — it is easy for Us!
50:45 We know what they say! And you are not to be coercive on them. So admonish with the Qur'an such as fear My Warning!
