Qaf: By the Glorious Quran: (A Book, Pure and Holy)
But they wonder that a Warner (the Prophet,) has come to them from among themselves. So the unbelievers say: "This is a strange thing
"When we die and become dust, (shall we live again?) that is a (sort of) return far (from our understanding)."
We already know how much of them the earth takes away: And with Us is a Record guarding (the full account)
No! But they deny the truth when it comes to them: So they are in a confused state
Do they not look at the sky above them, how We have made it and decorated it, and there are no flaws in it
And the earth! We have spread it out, and set on it mountains standing firm, and produced in there every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs)—
To be observed and remembered by every servant turning (to Allah and seeking forgiveness)
And We send down from the sky rain filled with blessing, and We produce with it, gardens and grain for harvest
And tall (and stately) palm-trees, with shoots of fruit-stalks, placed one over another—
As sustenance for (Allah’s) servants— And We give (new) life with it to land that is dead. Thus the New Life (resurrection) begins
Before them (the Hereafter) was denied by the People of Nuh (Noah), and the companions of the Rass, and the Samood (Thamud)
And ‘Ad, and Firon (Pharaoh), and the brothers of Lut (Lot)
And the companions of the Wood, and the People of Tubba’; each one (of them) rejected (their) messengers, so My warning was truly fulfilled (for them)
Were We then tired with the first Creation? Nay! They are in a confused (state of) doubt about a new Creation
And indeed, We have created man, and We know what (evil) temptation his innermost self may bring to him: And We are nearer to him than (his) jugular vein
(Remember) that two (guardian angels) appointed to learn (his deeds) learn (and note them), one sitting on the right and one on the left
Not a word does he (each angel) say, but there is a guard by him, ready (to note the deeds)
And the agony of death will bring truth (before his eyes, and he says): "This was the thing you were attempting to escape!"
And the Trumpet shall be blown:— That will be the Day (of Resurrection) about which warning (had been given)
And every soul will come forward; With each soul will be an (angel) to drive, and an (angel) to bear witness
(It will be said to the sinners:) "Indeed, you were careless about this; Now We have removed from you, your veil, and sharp is your sight this Day!"
And his companion (angel) will say: "Here is (his record) ready with me!"
(The sentence from Allah will be:) "Both of you (angels) throw, into Hell every miserable rejecter (of Allah)
"Who prevented what was good, exceeded all bounds, created doubts and suspicions
"Who set up another god besides Allah: Both of you (angels), throw him into a severe penalty."
His companion, (the Satan in the Hell) will say: "Our Lord! I did not make him transgress, but he was (himself) far away (from good)."
He (Allah) will say: "Dispute not with each other in front of Me: I had already in advance sent you the Threat and Warning
"The sentence that comes from Me shall not be changed, and I do not do the least injustice to My servants."
On that Day, We will ask Hell, "Are you filled to the full?" It will say: "Are there any more (to come)?"
And the Garden will be taken near the righteous— It will not be a far away thing
(A voice will say:) "This is what was promised for you— For every one who turned (to Allah) with true repentance, (those) who kept (His Command)
"(Those) who feared (Allah), Most Gracious, Unseen, (Rahman-bil-Ghaib) and brought a heart turned in repentance (and love for Him)
"Therein, you enter in peace and security; This is a Day of Eternal Life!"
For them, there will be all that they wish for— And more besides in Our Presence
And how many generations before them did We destroy (for their sins)— (Though) they were stronger in power than them? And they wandered through the land: Was there any place of escape (for them)
Surely in this there is a Reminder and a Message for anyone who has a heart and understanding or who gives ear and truly sees (the truth)
And indeed, We created the heavens and the earth and all between them in six Days, and no sense of tiredness touches Us
Then bear with patience, all that they say, and celebrate the Praises of your Lord, before the rising of the sun (Faj’r) and before (its) setting (Zuh’r and ‘Asr)
And during part of the night (Maghrib and Isha), (also) celebrate His praises and (glorify Him) after the prayers (of His adoration)
And listen on the Day when the Caller will call out from a place close by—
The Day when they will hear a (mighty) Blast in truth (for awakening): That will be the Day of Resurrection
Surely, it is We Who give life and cause death; And to Us is the Final Return—
On the Day when the earth will be torn apart, from (men) quickly getting out: That will be a gathering together— (It is) quite easy for Us
We know best what they say, and you (O Prophet) are not the one to bring Faith in them by force. But warn (him, the weary and confused) with the Quran such as (he, who) fears My Warning
