50:1 - Qaf. By the Glorious Qur'an,

50:2 - Nay, but they marvel that a warner of their own hath come unto them; and the disbelievers say: This is a strange thing:

50:3 - When we are dead and have become dust (shall we be brought back again)? That would be a far return!

50:4 - We know that which the earth taketh of them, and with Us is a recording Book.

50:5 - Nay, but they have denied the truth when it came unto them, therefor they are now in troubled case.

50:6 - Have they not then observed the sky above them, how We have constructed it and beautified it, and how there are no rifts therein?

50:7 - And the earth have We spread out, and have flung firm hills therein, and have caused of every lovely kind to grow thereon,

50:8 - A vision and a reminder for every penitent slave.

50:9 - And We send down from the sky blessed water whereby We give growth unto gardens and the grain of crops,

50:10 - And lofty date-palms with ranged clusters,

50:11 - Provision (made) for men; and therewith We quicken a dead land. Even so will be the resurrection of the dead.

50:12 - The folk of Noah denied (the truth) before them, and (so did) the dwellers at Ar-Rass and (the tribe of) Thamud,

50:13 - And (the tribe of) A'ad, and Pharaoh, and the brethren of Lot,

50:14 - And the dwellers in the wood, and the folk of Tubb'a: every one denied their messengers, therefor My threat took effect.

50:15 - Were We then worn out by the first creation? Yet they are in doubt about a new creation.

50:16 - We verily created man and We know what his soul whispereth to him, and We are nearer to him than his jugular vein.

50:24 - (And it is said): Do ye twain hurl to hell each rebel ingrate,

50:25 - Hinderer of good, transgressor, doubter,

50:26 - Who setteth up another god along with Allah. Do ye twain hurl him to the dreadful doom.

50:27 - His comrade saith: Our Lord! I did not cause him to rebel, but he was (himself) far gone in error.

50:28 - He saith: Contend not in My presence, when I had already proffered unto you the warning.

50:31 - And the Garden is brought nigh for those who kept from evil, no longer distant.

50:32 - (And it is said): This is that which ye were promised. (It is) for every penitent and heedful one,

50:33 - Who feareth the Beneficent in secret and cometh with a contrite heart.

50:34 - Enter it in peace. This is the day of immortality.

50:35 - There they have all that they desire, and there is more with Us.

50:36 - And how many a generation We destroyed before them, who were mightier than these in prowess so that they overran the lands! Had they any place of refuge (when the judgment came)?

50:37 - Lo! therein verily is a reminder for him who hath a heart, or giveth ear with full intelligence.

50:38 - And verily We created the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, in six Days, and naught of weariness touched Us.

50:45 - We are Best Aware of what they say, and thou (O Muhammad) art in no wise a compeller over them. But warn by the Qur'an him who feareth My threat.
