50:1  Qaf. By the glorious Qur’an
50:2  Rather they consider it odd that a warner should have come to them from among themselves. So the faithless say, ‘This is an odd thing
50:3  What! When we are dead and have become dust [shall we be raised again]? That is a far-fetched return!’
50:4  We know what the earth diminishes from them, and with Us is a preserving Book
50:5  Rather they denied the truth when it came to them; so they are now in a perplexed state of affairs
50:6  Have they not then observed the sky above them, how We have built it and adorned it, and that there are no cracks in it
50:7  And We spread out the earth, and cast in it firm mountains, and caused every delightful kind to grow in it
50:8  [In this there is] an insight and admonition for every penitent servant
50:9  And We send down from the sky salubrious water, with which We grow gardens and the grain which is harvested
50:10  and tall date palms with regularly set spathes
50:11  as a provision for servants; and with it We revive a dead country. Likewise will be the rising [from the dead]
50:12  The people of Noah denied before them, and [so did] the inhabitants of Rass and Thamud
50:13  and ‘a€d, Pharaoh, and the brethren of Lot
50:14  and the inhabitants of Aykah and the people of Tubba‘. Each [of them] impugned the apostles, and so My threat became due [against them]
50:15  Were We exhausted by the first creation? Rather they are in doubt about a new creation
50:16  Certainly We have created man and We know to what his soul tempts him, and We are nearer to him than his jugular vein
50:17  When the twin recorders record [his deeds], seated on the right hand and on the left
50:18  he says no word but that there is a ready observer beside him
50:19  Then the agony of death brings the truth: ‘This is what you used to shun!’
50:20  Then the Trumpet will be blown: ‘This is the promised day.’
50:21  Then every soul will come accompanied by a driver and a witness
50:22  ‘You were certainly oblivious of this. We have removed your veil from you, and so your sight is acute today.’
50:23  Then his companion will say, ‘This is what is ready with me [of testimony].&rsquo
50:24  ‘The two of you cast every obdurate ingrate into hell
50:25  [every] hinderer of all good, transgressor, and skeptic
50:26  who has set up another god along with Allah! So the two of you cast him into the severe punishment.’
50:27  His companion will say, ‘Our Lord! I did not make him a rebel, but he [himself] was in extreme error.’
50:28  He will say, ‘Do not wrangle in My presence, for I had already warned you in advance
50:29  The word [of judgement] is unalterable with Me, and I am not tyrannical to the servants.’
50:30  The day when We shall say to hell, ‘Are you full?’ It will say, ‘Is there any more?’
50:31  And paradise will be brought near for the Godwary, not distant [any more]
50:32  ‘This is what you were promised. [It is] for every penitent and dutiful [servant]
50:33  who fears the All-beneficent in secret and comes with a penitent heart
50:34  Enter it in peace! This is the day of immortality.’
50:35  There they will have whatever they wish, and with Us there is yet more
50:36  How many generations We have destroyed before them, who were stronger than these, insomuch that they ransacked the towns?! Is there any escape [from Allah’s punishment]
50:37  There is indeed an admonition in that for one who has a heart, or gives ear, being attentive
50:38  Certainly We created the heavens and the earth, and whatever is between them, in six days, and any fatigue did not touch Us
50:39  So be patient over what they say, and celebrate the praise of your Lord before the rising of the sun and before the sunset
50:40  and glorify Him through part of the night and after the prostrations
50:41  And be on the alert for the day when the caller calls from a close quarter
50:42  the day when they hear the Cry in all truth. That is the day of rising [from the dead]
50:43  Indeed it is We who give life and bring death, and toward Us is the destination
50:44  The day the earth is split open for [disentombing] them, [they will come out] hastening. That mustering is easy for Us [to carry out]
50:45  We know best what they say, and you are not to be a tyrant over them. So admonish by the Qur’an him who fears My threat
