In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1 . Qaf . By the glorious Quran ,
2 . Nay , but they marvel that a warner of their own hath come unto them ; and the disbelievers say : This is a strange thing :
3 . When we are dead and have become dust ( shall we be brought back again ) ? That would be a far return!
4 . We know that which the earth taketh of them , and with Us is a recording Book .
5 . Nay , but they have denied the truth when it came unto them , therefor they are now in troubled case .
6 . Have they not then observed the sky above them , how We have constructed it and beautified it , and how there are no rifts therein?
7 . And the earth have We spread out , and have flung firm hills therein , and have caused of every lovely kind to grow thereon ,
8 . A vision and a reminder for every penitent slave .
9 . And We send down from the sky blessed water whereby We give growth unto gardens and the grain of crops ,
10 . And lofty date palms with ranged clusters ,
11 . Provision ( made ) for men ; and therewith We quicken a dead land . Even so will be the resurrection of the dead .
12 . The folk of Noah denied ( the truth ) before them , and ( so did ) the dwellers at Ar Kass and ( the tribe of ) Thamud ,
13 . And ( the tribe of ) Aad , and Pharaoh , and the brethren of Lot ,
14 . And the dwellers in the wood , and the folk of Tubba : every one denied their messengers , therefor My threat took effect .
15 . Were We then worn out by the first creation? Yet they are in doubt about a new creation .
16 . We verily created a man and We know what his soul whispereth to him , and We are nearer to him than his jugular vein .
17 . When the two Receivers receive ( him ) , seated on the right hand and on the left ,
18 . He uttereth no word but there is with him an observer ready .
19 . And the agony of death cometh in truth . ( And it is said unto him ) : This is that which thou wast wont to shun .
20 . And the trumpet is blown . This is the threatened Day .
21 . And every soul cometh , along with it a driver and a witness
22 . ( And unto the evil doer it is said ) : Thou wast in heedlessness of this . Now We have removed from thee thy covering , and piercing is thy sight this day .
23 . And ( unto the evil doer ) his comrade saith : This is that which I have ready ( as testimony ) .
24 . ( And it is said ) : Do ye twain hurl to hell each rebel ingrate ,
25 . Hinderer of good , transgressor , doubter ,
26 . Who setteth up another god along with Allah . Do ye twain hurl him to the dreadful doom .
27 . His comrade saith : Our Lord! I did not cause him to rebel , but be was ( himself ) far gone in error .
28 . He saith : Contend not in My presence , when I had already proffered unto you the warning .
29 . The sentence that cometh from Me cannot be changed , and I am in no wise a tyrant unto the slaves .
30 . On the day when We say unto hell : Art thou filled? and it saith : Can there be more to come?
31 . And the Garden is brought nigh for those who kept from evil , no longer distant .
32 . ( And it is said ) : That is that which ye were promised . ( It is ) for every penitent and heedful one ,
33 . Who feareth the Beneficent in secret and cometh with a contrite heart .
34 . Enter it in peace . This is the day of immortality .
35 . There they have all that they desire , and there is more with Us .
36 . 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 ) ?
37 . Lo! therein verily is a reminder for him who hath a heart , or giveth ear with full intelligence . .
38 . And verily We created the heavens and the earth , and all that is between them , in six days , and naught of weariness touched Us .
39 . Therefor ( O Muhammad ) bear with what they say : and hymn the praise of thy Lord before the rising and before the setting of the sun ;
40 . And in the night time hymn His praise : And after the ( prescribed ) prostrations .
41 . And listen on the day when the crier crieth from a near place ,
42 . The day when they will hear the ( Awful ) Cry in truth That is the day of coming forth ( from the graves ) .
43 . Lo! We it is Who quicken and give death , and unto Us is the journeying .
44 . On the day when the earth splitteth asunder from them , hastening forth ( they come ) . That is a gathering easy for Us ( to make ) .
45 . We are best aware of what they say , and thou ( O Muhammad ) art in no wise a compeller over them . But warn by the Quran him who feareth My threat .
