Qaaf. By the Glorious Quran, you are God's messenger
But they wonder how there has come to them a warner from among themselves. So the unbelievers say, “This is a wonderful thing
“What, when we die and become dust? That is far-fetched.
We already know how many of them the earth takes away. With Us is a record guarding the full account
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 adorned it, and there are no flaws in it
And the earth, We have spread it out, and set mountains standing firm, and produced therein every kind of beautiful growth
To be observed and commemorated by every devotee turning to God
And We send down from the sky, rain charged with blessings, and We produce with it gardens and grain for harvest
And tall palm trees, with shoots of fruit-stalks, piled one over another
As sustenance for God's servants. And We give life with it to land that is dead, as will be the resurrection
Before them, was denied the hereafter by the people of Noah, the companions of the Rass, the Thamud
The ‘Ad, Pharaoh, the brothers of Lot
The companions of the Wood, and the people of Touba. Each one rejected the messengers, and My warning was duly fulfilled
And did We tire during the first creation, so that they should be in confused doubt about a new creation
It was We Who created the human being, and We know what suggestions their soul makes to them, for We are nearer to them than their jugular vein
Imagine two guardian angels appointed to observe, one sitting on the right and one on the left
Not a word do they utter, except that there is with him a ready observer
And the shock at death will bring truth, “This was the thing which you were trying to escape.
And the trumpet will be blown. That will be the day when warning will be given
And there will come forward every soul. With each will be an angel to drive, and an angel to bear witness
It will be said, “You were heedless of this, now We have removed your veil, and sharp is your sight this day.
And his companion will say, “Here is his record ready with me.
“Throw into hell, every stubborn rejecter
“Who made forbidden what was good, transgressed all bounds, cast doubts and suspicions
“And who established another god beside God. Throw him into a severe penalty.
His companion will say, “Our Lord, I did not make him transgress, but he was himself far astray.
He will say, “Do not dispute with each other in My presence. I had already in advance sent warning
“The word does not change before Me, and I do not the least injustice to My servants.
One day We will ask hell, “Are you filled to capacity?” It will say, “Are there any more?
And the garden will be brought near to the righteous, no more a thing distant
This is what was promised to you. Everyone who turned in sincere repentance, and who are saved
“Who had been conscious of God, the Merciful Benefactor, Unseen, and who brought a heart turned in devotion
“Enter there in peace and security, this is a day of eternal life.
There will be for them all that they wish, and even more in Our presence
But how many generations before them did We destroy who were stronger in power than they were? Then they wandered through the land. Was there any place of escape for them
Indeed in this is a message for any who has a heart and understanding, or who gives ear and earnestly witnesses
We created the heavens and the earth, and all between them in six days, and no sense of weariness touched Us
So bear with patience all that they say, praise your Lord, before the rising of the Sun and before its setting
And during part of the night, praise Him, and after the positions of adoration
And listen for the day when the caller will call out from a near place
The day when they will hear a mighty blast. In fact, that will be the Day of Resurrection
Indeed it is We Who give life and death, and to Us is the final goal
The day when the earth will be split asunder from people hurrying out. That will be a gathering together that is easy for Us
We know best what they say, and you are not one to overwhelm them by force. So advise with the Quran, those who fear My warning
