Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

[Qaf 50:1] Qaf; by oath of the Glorious Qur’an.

[Qaf 50:2] Rather they were shocked that a Herald of Warning came to them from among themselves, so the disbelievers said, “This is something really strange.”

[Qaf 50:3] “When we are dead and have turned to dust, will we be raised again? That return is impossible!”

[Qaf 50:4] We know all what the earth decreases from them; and with Us is a Book that retains.

[Qaf 50:5] In fact they denied the Truth when it came to them, so they are now in a dilemma.

[Qaf 50:6] So did they not see the sky above them - how We have made it and beautified it, and there are no cracks in it?

[Qaf 50:7] And (how) We have spread the earth, and placed mountains as anchors in it, and have grown all kinds of beautiful pairs in it?

[Qaf 50:8] A perception and an understanding, for every bondman who inclines.

[Qaf 50:9] And We sent down the auspicious water from the sky, therefore producing gardens with it, and the grain that is harvested.

[Qaf 50:10] And high date-palms with lush fruit.

[Qaf 50:11] As sustenance for the bondmen; and with it We revived a dead city; this is how you will be raised.

[Qaf 50:12] Before these, the people of Nooh had denied, and so did the dwellers of Rass and the Thamud.

[Qaf 50:13] And the tribe of A’ad, and Firaun, and the fellowmen of Lut.

[Qaf 50:14] And the Dwellers of the Woods, and the people of Tubb’a; each one of them denied the Noble Messengers, so My promised punishment proved true.

[Qaf 50:15] So did We tire by creating the first time? Rather they doubt in being created again.
