Sura Qaf
Sheikh / AbdulBaset AbdulSamad

  • In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

    50:1-3 Qaf. By the glorious Quran, nay, but they marvel that a warner of their own has come to them ; and the disbelievers say : This is a strange thing : When we are dead and have become dust (shall we be brought back again)? That would be a far return!

    50:4-5 We know that which the earth takes of them, and with Us is a recording Book. Nay, but they have denied the truth when it came to them; therefore they are now in a troubled case.

    50:6-11 Have they not then observed the sky above them, how We have constructed it and beautified it, and how there are no rifts therein? And the earth have We spread out, and have flung firm hills therein, and have caused of every lovely kind to grow thereon, a vision and a reminder for every penitent slave. And We send down from the sky blessed water whereby We give growth to gardens and the grain of crops, and lofty date palms with ranged clusters, provision (made) for men; and therewith We quicken a dead land. Even so will be the resurrection of the dead.

    50:12-14 The folk of Noah denied (the truth) before them, and (so did) the dwellers at Ar-Rass and (the tribe of) Thamud, and (the tribe of) Aad, and Pharaoh, and the brethren of Lot, and the dwellers in the wood, and the folk of Tubba: every one denied their Messengers, therefore My threat took effect.

    50:15-16 Were We then worn out by the first creation? Yet they are in doubt about a new creation. We verily created a man and We know what his soul whispers to him, and We are nearer to him than his jugular vein.

    50:17-19 When the two receivers receive (him) seated on the right hand and on the left, he utters no word but there is with him an observer ready. And the agony of death comes in truth. (And it is said to him): This is that which you were wont to shun.

    50:20-29 And the Trumpet is blown. This is the threatened Day. And every soul comes, along with it a driver and a witness, (and to the evildoer it is said:) you were in heedlessness of this. Now We have removed from you your covering, and piercing is your sight this Day. And (to the evildoer) his comrade says: This is that which I have ready (as testimony). (And it is said:) Do you both hurl to Hell each rebel ingrate, hinderer of good, transgressor, doubter, who sets up another god along with God. Do you both hurl him to the dreadful punishment? His comrade says: Our Lord! I did not cause him to rebel, but he was (himself) far gone in error. He says: Contend not in My presence, when I had already proffered to you the warning. The sentence that comes from Me cannot be changed, and I am in no way a tyrant to the slaves.

    50:30 On the Day when We say to Hell: Are you filled? And it says: Can there be more to come?

    50:31-35 And the Garden is brought near for those who kept from evil, no longer distant. (And it is said): This is that which you were promised. (It is) for every penitent and heedful one, who fears the Beneficent in secret and comes with a contrite heart. Enter it in peace. This is the Day of immortality. There they have all that they desire, and there is more with Us.

    50:36-37 And how many a generation We destroyed before them, who were mightier than these in prowess so that they overran the lands! Had they any place of refuge (when the judgment came)? Lo! Therein verily is a reminder for him who has a heart, or gives ear with full intelligence.

    50:38 And verily We created the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, in six Days, and nothing of weariness touched Us.

    50:39-40 Therefore (O Muhammad) have patience with what they say, and hymn the praise of your Lord before the rising and before the setting of the sun; and in the nighttime hymn His praise: And after the (prescribed) prostrations.

    50:41-44 And listen on the Day when the crier cries from a near place, the Day when they will hear the (Awful) Cry in truth. That is the Day of coming forth (from the graves). Lo! We it is Who quicken and give death, and to Us is the journeying. On the Day when the earth splits asunder from them, hastening forth (they come). That is a gathering easy for Us (to make).

    50:45 We are Best Aware of what they say, and you (O Muhammad) are in no way a compeller over them. But warn by the Quran him who fears My threat.
