Qaf and the Glorious Qur'an.
They marveled that someone from among their midst has come to them with a warning. The unbelievers say, "This is an amazing thing.
Once We have died and become dust? That is a most unlikely return."
We know how many of them the earth consumes, and We keep a comprehensive record [about each one of them].
But when the Truth came to them, they denied it; they are in a state of confusion.
Have they not looked at the sky above them, how We structured it, and beautified it with all its gateways?
And the earth, how We spread it out and placed on it firm mountains, and made every beautiful pair of plants grow in it
This is an insight and a reminder to every worshiper who willingly turns to God.
And We sent down blessed rain from the sky and grew gardens and grain to harvest.
And soaring palm trees, with clustered dates
as provision for the worshipers. By it [the rain] We gave life to a dead town. This is how the emergence [from the graves] will take place.
Before them the people of Noah denied the truth, and so did the dwellers of Rass, Thamud
Aad, Pharaoh and the brothers of Lot,
the woods-dwellers and the people of Tubba'. All of these people rejected their messengers, so My threat was justly fulfilled.
Were We exhausted by the first creation? But they are dubious of a new creation.
We have created man and We know what his inner soul is whispering. We are closer to him than his jugular vein
as he receives the two recording agents, seated one on the right and one on the left.
He does not utter any word, without a vigilant observer present with him.
Eventually, the trance of death will come with the Truth. This is what you were trying to evade.
The Horn will be blown. This is the Promised Day.
Every soul will come, with it a driver and a witness.
"You did not pay much attention to this day, but as We lifted your veil from you, your vision today is keen."
His inseparable companion, will say, "This is what I have recorded."
[God will say], "Cast into Hell everyone who stubbornly denied the truth,
everyone who prevented good from reaching others, aggressor, who caused others to doubt,
who made other gods as equal with God; then cast him into severe punishment."
His [evil] companion will say, "Our Lord, I did not make him transgress, but he [himself], was extremely lost."
[God] will say, "Do not feud in My presence, when I had warned you in advance.
My judgment, once given, is not subject to change and I do not wrong My servants."
On the Day We will say to Hell, "Are you full?" And it will say, "Are there some more?"
And Paradise will be brought near to those who were ever mindful of God, it will not be far
[It will be said], "This is what you were promised. for every repentant, keeper of his covenant with God
who feared the Merciful although He was beyond his perception and came with a repenting heart.
Enter it in peace. This is the Day of Eternity."
Whatever they want there, they will have and with Us is still more.
How many a generation We destroyed before them, who were more powerful and had searched every land. Was there any escape?
There is a reminder in this for whoever has a heart or cared to listen and witness.
And We did create the heavens and earth and everything between them in six days, and We were not the least weary.
So [Prophet] endure what they say and praise your Lord's limitless glory before the rising of the sun and before its setting,
and glorify Him part of the night and after prostration.
Listen for the Day when the Caller will call out from a place that is near.
The Day they will hear the blast in all Truth, that is the Day of Emergence [from the graves].
It is We who give life and cause death, and to Us is their final destination
The Day when the earth cracks as they emerge rapidly; That is an easy gathering for Us.
We know best what they say, and you are not there to force them. So remind with the Quran those who fear My warning.
