Qāf. By the Glorious Qur’ān!
Nay! With respect to this they are surprised that there has come to them a Messenger of their own race to admonish them. So those who are spiritually dead and blind say: “This is really pretty weird."
What! When we die and become dust, (shall we be raised up again)? That is very unlikely to happen.”
Most assuredly We have full knowledge of what the earth diminishes of them. We have a book that keeps all the records.
Nay! they persistently refuse to acknowledge (the divine origin of Qur’ān)- when It has been revealed to them. Now, therefore, they fall into confusion.
Have they not looked at the heavens above them (and see) how We have constructed and adorned it? There are no rifts in it.
As for the earth, We spread it out, set thereon mountains standing firm and produced therein every kind of beautiful growth in pairs.
This is an enlightenment and a Book of Spiritual Quotations for every devoted worshiper (of Allâh), who turns to Him in repentance.
And We cause blessed water to fall down from the sky, then We produce therewith gardens, grain of crops,
And lofty palm trees with clustered fruit,
As a provision for (His) servants. furthermore We give life thereby to a dead land. This is how the resurrection will be!.
Before them, the people of Noah were inclined to deny the Truth and so did the dwellers of Ar-Rass, (the tribe of) Thamūd,
(The tribe of) Ād, Pharaoh, the brethren of Lot,
The Companions of the Thicket and the people of Tubba. All of them had denied the Messengers (of Allâh). So My threat was justly fulfilled.
Were We then worn out by (the task of) the first creation? Nay, but they are deeply skeptical about a new creation.
And verily, We created man and We have full knowledge of what his Inner Self whispers into him. We are closer to him than his jugular vein.
When the two recording Angels receive, sitting on the right and on the left,
Not a single word does he utter but there is by him a keeper at hand.
The agony of death comes in truth. That is what you have been avoiding.
The trumpet will be blown. That will be the day of threatening.
Every human person will come forth along with a driver and a witness.
And most surely you were unaware of this. We have removed your veil, thus, your sight, this day, is sharp.
His Companion will say: "This is what I have made ready of his record."
Now, therefore, cast into hell whoever is spiritually blind and stubborn:
Who has wasted his life on promoting evil, yielding to temptation, casting doubt on every certainty,
And setting up another god with Allâh. Now do cast him into the severe punishment!
His Companion will say: “Our Lord, I did not lead him into temptation but he was deceived into going far away from the Truth."
Allâh will say: “Do not quarrel in my presence since I gave you warning beforehand.
The Sentence that comes from Me cannot be changed, nor am I in the least unfair to the servants."
On that day will We say to Gehenna: "Are you filled?" It will ask: "Are there any more?"
And Al-Jannah will be brought near to the Pious, not far off.
This is what you were promised; it is for every one who turned to Allâh in repentance and kept (His Law),
Whoever showed honor and reverence for the True Merciful (God) in secret and came (to Him) with faithful heart.
Now enter Al- Jannah in Peace! This is the day of immortality.”
They will have therein whatever they desire, and We have even more than what is expected.
So many generations We destroyed before them- (the Pagan Arabs). They were more powerful than them. (When Our divine retribution came), they went about in the lands. Was there any place of escape?!
Indeed, in this there is a lesson for the one who has (an active) heart, and who gives ear and pays close attention (to what has been revealed) .
And verily We created the heavens, the earth and whatsoever is between them in six days without being touched by fatigue.
Now, therefore, bear with patience whatever they say, celebrate the praise of your Lord and declare His absolute majesty and glory before sunrise and sunset.
And during part of the night, celebrate the praise of your Lord and declare His absolute majesty and glory, and so likewise after the prescribed prostrations.
Now wait for the day when the caller will call from a nearby place,
The day when they shall hear the (Inevitable) Blast in truth: that will be the Day of Resurrection.
Verily it is We Who give life and bring death; and to Us is the journey’s end.
The day on which the earth will split asunder under them, they will rush out of their graves: that will be a gathering together- quite easy for Us.
We have full knowledge of whatever they say. And you are not a tyrant over them. Now, Therefore, admonish him by means of the Qur’ān whoever pays close attention to My threat.
