50:1  QAF. I CALL to witness the glorious Qur'an
50:2  They are rather surprised that a warner from among themselves has come to them. So the unbelievers say: "This is astonishing
50:3  When we are dead and turned to dust, this returning (to life) is most far-fetched."
50:4  We know what the earth consumes of them, for We have the Book that preserves everything
50:5  But no! They called the truth a lie when it came to them; so they are in a confused state
50:6  Have they not looked at the sky above them, how We have fashioned and adorned it, and it has no flaw
50:7  We stretched the earth and placed upon it firm stabilisers and We made every kind of splendid thing to grow upon i
50:8  As instruction and reminder to every penitent creature
50:9  And We send down water as a blessing from the sky, and grow gardens with it and the grain for harvest
50:10  And tall date-palms with their spathes pile on pil
50:11  As a provision for men, and enlivened a region that was dead. Even thus will be the life after death
50:12  The people of Noah, Ar-Rass and Thamud denied before you
50:13  As did the people of 'Ad and Pharaoh and the brethren of Lot
50:14  And the dwellers of the Wood and people of Tubba'. Each of them denied the apostles. So My threat became a reality
50:15  Were We exhausted by the act of the first creation? And yet they are confused about a new creation
50:16  He created man and surely know what misdoubts arise in their hearts; for We are closer to him than his jugular vein
50:17  When the two (angels) who keep the account, one sitting on the right, one on the left, take it down
50:18  There is not a word he utters but an observer is ready (to make note of it)
50:19  The palsy of death will surely come. This is what you wished to avert
50:20  And the trumpet blast will sound: It would be the Day of Doom
50:21  Each soul will come with a driver and a witness
50:22  (And the driver will say:) "You were oblivious of this, so we have removed the veil, and how keen is your sight today!"
50:23  His companion will say: "Here is (the record) I have ready with me."
50:24  "Cast each stubborn unbeliever into Hell," (they will be told)
50:25  "Every obstructor of good, transgressor, and the sceptic
50:26  Who had set up another god with God. Cast him into severe torment."
50:27  His companion will say: "O Lord, I did not lead him to wickedness, but he was himself far astray."
50:28  "Do not argue in My presence. I had announced the promise of doom in advance
50:29  There is no changing of My word, nor am I unjust to My creatures."
50:30  We shall ask Hell that day: "Are you full?" It will answer: "Are there still more?"
50:31  And Paradise will be brought near, not far from those who took heed for themselves and feared God
50:32  "This is what you had been promised," (will be said) to every penitent who remembered (his duty)
50:33  Who feared Ar-Rahman in secret, and came with a penitent heart
50:34  "Enter it in peace. This is the day of life abiding."
50:35  Theirs will be whatsoever they wish: And with Us there is more
50:36  How many generations have We destroyed before them who were mightier in power than they. Then they searched throughout the land to see if there was a way of escape
50:37  Surely there is a reminder in this for whosoever has a heart (to feel), or takes heed
50:38  We created the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them, in six spans, and no weariness came upon Us
50:39  So you bear with patience what they say, and sing the praises of your Lord before the rising of the sun and its setting
50:40  And glorify Him for some portion of the night, and additional adorations
50:41  Take heed that the day the crier calls from a place close (to every one)
50:42  The day they actually hear the blast, will be the Day of rising of the dead
50:43  We are the one who give life and death, and to Us will be the destination
50:44  The day the earth will split asunder they will come out hurriedly. This gathering together is easy for Us
50:45  We are cognisant of what they say; but it is not for you to compel them. So keep on reminding through the Qur'an whoever fears My warning
