Qaf. By the Glorious Qur’an (O Muhammad you are the Messenger of Allah)
But they wonder that there has come to them a Warner from among themselves. So the unbelievers say: "This indeed is very strang
that after we are dead and have become dust we shall be raised to life again, such a return is far from reason."
We know all that the earth consumes of their bodies, and We have a Book which keeps records of everything
Nay! But these people deny the truth when it comes to them, and they are confused
Have they never looked at the sky above them, and marked how We have made it and adorned it, and there are no flaws in it
And the earth, how We have spread it out and set upon it mountains and caused to grow in it every kind of beautiful vegetation
All these things are eye-openers and a reminder for every servant returning to Allah
We send down blessed water from the sky with which We bring forth gardens and the harvest grain
and tall palm trees laden with clusters of dates, piled one over another
a sustenance for the servants; thereby giving new life to dead land. That is how the resurrection will be of the dead from the earth
Before, the people of Noah and the dwellers of Ar-Rass denied this truth and so did Thamud
‘Ad, Pharaoh and the brethren of Lot
the dwellers of the Al-Aiykah and the people of Tubba; all of them disbelieved their Messengers and thus brought down upon them My threatened scourge
Were We fatigued with the first creation that they are in doubt about a new creation
We created man, We know the prompting of his soul, and We are closer to him than his jugular vein
Besides this direct knowledge ,We have assigned to every one two scribes (guardian angels), the one seated on his right and the other on his left
not a single word does he utter but there is a vigilant guardian ready to note it down
When the agony of death will bring the truth before his eyes, they will say: "This is what you were trying to escape!"
And the Trumpet shall be blown; that will be the Day of which you were threatened
Each soul will come forth; with it there will be a an angel to drive and an angel to bear witness
It will be said: "You were heedless of this, but now We have removed your veil, so your eyesight is sharp today!"
His companion will say: "Here is my testimony ready with me."
The sentence will be: "Throw into hell every stubborn disbeliever
every opponent of good, and every doubting transgresso
who set up other gods besides Allah. Throw him into severe punishment."
His companion will say: "Our Lord! I did not mislead him. He himself had gone far astray."
Allah will say: "Do not dispute with each other in My presence. I gave you warning beforehand
My words cannot be changed, nor am I unjust to My servants."
On that Day, We shall ask the hell: "Are you full?" And the hell will answer: "Are there any more?"
Paradise shall be brought close to the righteous, which will no more be a distant thing
and it will be said: "Here is what you were promised. It is for every penitent faithful person
who feared the Compassionate (Allah) without seeing Him and will come before Him with a devoted heart."
Allah will say: "Enter it in peace; this is the Day of Eternal Life!"
There they shall have all that they wish, and We shall have yet more to give
How many generations, far stronger in power, have We destroyed before them! They searched the entire land: but could they find any refuge
Surely in this there is a lesson for every person who has a heart, and can hear and witness
We created the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them in six periods, and no fatigue touched Us
Therefore, O Prophet, bear with them in patience whatever they say, and keep on glorifying your Lord before sunrise and before sunset
And glorify Him during a part of the night and after the prostration (prayers)
And listen! The Day when the Caller will call out from a place quite near
the Day when the people will hear the mighty blast in reality; that will be the Day of coming forth (the dead will rise from their graves)
Surely it is We Who give life and death; and to Us shall all return
on that Day when the earth shall split asunder and the people shall be rushing out of it; that gathering them together shall be quite easy for Us
We know very well what these unbelievers say. You (O Muhammad) are not there to compel them to believe. So admonish with this Qur’an every such person who fears My warning
