Qaf:

Revealed at Makkah: 3 sections; 45 verses

English Translation of the Holy Quran by Maulana Muhammad Ali


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

50:1 Almighty (God)! By the glorious Quran!

50:2 Nay, they wonder that a warner has come to them from among themselves; so the disbelievers say: This is a wonderful thing!

50:3 When we die and become dust — that is a far return.

50:4 We know indeed what the earth diminishes of them and with Us is a book that preserves.

50:5 Nay, they reject the Truth when it comes to them, so they are in a state of confusion.

50:6 Do they not look at the sky above them? — how We have made it and adorned it and it has no gaps.

50:7 And the earth, We have spread it out, and cast therein mountains, and We have made to grow therein of every beautiful kind —

50:8 To give sight and as a reminder to every servant who turns (to Allah).

50:9 And We send down from the clouds water abounding in good, then We cause to grow thereby gardens and the grain that is reaped,

50:10 And the tall palm-trees having flower spikes piled one above another —

50:11 A sustenance for the servants, and We give life thereby to a dead land. Thus is the rising.

50:12 Before them the people of Noah rejected (the Truth) and (so did) the dwellers of al-Rass and Thamud

50:13 And ‘Ad and Pharaoh and Lot’s brethren,

50:14 And the dwellers of the grove and the people of Tubba‘. They all rejected the messengers, so My threat came to pass.

50:15 Were We then fatigued with the first creation? Yet they are in doubt about a new creation.

50:16 And certainly We created man, and We know what his mind suggests to him — and We are nearer to him than his life-vein.

50:17 When the two receivers receive, sitting on the right and on the left,

50:18 He utters not a word but there is by him a watcher at hand.

50:19 And the stupor of death comes in truth; that is what thou wouldst shun.

50:20 And the trumpet is blown. That is the day of threatening.

50:21 And every soul comes, with it a driver and a witness.

50:22 Thou wast indeed heedless of this, but now We have removed from thee thy veil, so thy sight is sharp this day.

50:23 And his companion will say: This is what is ready with me.

50:24 Cast into hell every ungrateful, rebellious one,

50:25 Forbidder of good, exceeder of limits, doubter,

50:26 Who sets up another god with Allah, so cast him into severe chastisement.

50:27 His companion will say: Our Lord, I did not cause him to rebel but he himself went far in error.

50:28 He will say: Dispute not in My presence, and indeed I gave you warning beforehand.

50:29 My sentence cannot be changed, nor am I in the least unjust to the servants.

50:30 On the day when We say to hell: Art thou filled up? And it will say: Are there any more?

50:31 And the Garden is brought near for those who guard against evil — (it is) not distant.

50:32 This is what you are promised — for everyone turning (to Allah), keeping (the limits) —

50:33 Who fears the Beneficent in secret, and comes with a penitent heart:

50:34 Enter it in peace. That is the day of abiding.

50:35 For them therein is all they wish, and with Us is yet more.

50:36 And how many a generation We destroyed before them who were mightier in prowess than they! so they went about in the lands. Is there a place of refuge?

50:37 Surely there is a reminder in this for him who has a heart or he gives ear and is a witness.

50:38 And certainly We created the heavens and the earth and what is between them in six periods, and no fatigue touched Us.

50:39 So bear with what they say, and celebrate the praise of thy Lord before the rising of the sun and before the setting.

50:40 And glorify Him in the night and after prostration.

50:41 And listen on the day when the crier cries from a near place —

50:42 The day when they hear the cry in truth. That is the day of coming forth.

50:43 Surely We give life and cause to die, and to Us is the eventual coming —

50:44 The day when the earth cleaves asunder from them, hastening forth. That is a gathering easy to Us.

50:45 We know best what they say, and thou art not one to compel them. So remind by means of the Quran him who fears My threat.
