"Can he who was dead, to whom We gave life, and a light whereby he can walk amongst men, be like him who is in the depths of darkness, from which he can never come out?" — Holy Qur'an 6:122


Holy Quran Verses from Yusufali's Translation

Surah Qaaaf: Qaf

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

050.001 Qaf: By the Glorious Qur'an (Thou art God's Apostle).
050.002 But they wonder that there has come to them a Warner from among themselves. So the Unbelievers say: "This is a wonderful thing!
050.003 "What! When we die and become dust, (shall we live again?) That is a (sort of) return far (from our understanding)."
050.004 We already know how much of them the earth takes away: With Us is a record guarding (the full account).
050.005 But they deny the Truth when it comes to them: so they are in a confused state.
050.006 Do they not look at the sky above them?- How We have made it and adorned it, and there are no flaws in it?
050.007 And the earth- We have spread it out, and set thereon mountains standing firm, and produced therein every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs)-
050.008 To be observed and commemorated by every devotee turning (to God).
050.009 And We send down from the sky rain charted with blessing, and We produce therewith gardens and Grain for harvests;
050.010 And tall (and stately) palm-trees, with shoots of fruit-stalks, piled one over another;-
050.011 As sustenance for (God's) Servants;- and We give (new) life therewith to land that is dead: Thus will be the Resurrection.
050.012 Before them was denied (the Hereafter) by the People of Noah, the Companions of the Rass, the Thamud,
050.013 The 'Ad, Pharaoh, the brethren of Lut,
050.014 The Companions of the Wood, and the People of Tubba'; each one (of them) rejected the apostles, and My warning was duly fulfilled (in them).
050.015 Were We then weary with the first Creation, that they should be in confused doubt about a new Creation?
050.016 It was We Who created man, and We know what dark suggestions his soul makes to him: for We are nearer to him than (his) jugular vein.
050.017 Behold, two (guardian angels) appointed to learn (his doings) learn (and noted them), one sitting on the right and one on the left.
050.018 Not a word does he utter but there is a sentinel by him, ready (to note it).
050.019 And the stupor of death will bring Truth (before his eyes): "This was the thing which thou wast trying to escape!"
050.020 And the Trumpet shall be blown: that will be the Day whereof Warning (had been given).
050.021 And there will come forth every soul: with each will be an (angel) to drive, and an (angel) to bear witness.
050.022 (It will be said:) "Thou wast heedless of this; now have We removed thy veil, and sharp is thy sight this Day!"
050.023 And his Companion will say: "Here is (his Record) ready with me!"
050.024 (The sentence will be:) "Throw, throw into Hell every contumacious Rejecter (of God)!-
050.025 "Who forbade what was good, transgressed all bounds, cast doubts and suspicions;
050.026 "Who set up another god beside God: Throw him into a severe penalty."
050.027 His Companion will say: "Our Lord! I did not make him transgress, but he was (himself) far astray."
050.028 He will say: "Dispute not with each other in My Presence: I had already in advance sent you Warning.
050.029 "The Word changes not before Me, and I do not the least injustice to My Servants."
050.030 One Day We will ask Hell, "Art thou filled to the full?" It will say, "Are there any more (to come)?"
050.031 And the Garden will be brought nigh to the Righteous,- no more a thing distant.
050.032 (A voice will say:) "This is what was promised for you,- for every one who turned (to God) in sincere repentance, who kept (His Law),
050.033 "Who feared (God) Most Gracious Unseen, and brought a heart turned in devotion (to Him):
050.034 "Enter ye therein in Peace and Security; this is a Day of Eternal Life!"
050.035 There will be for them therein all that they wish,- and more besides in Our Presence.
050.036 But how many generations before them did We destroy (for their sins),- stronger in power than they? Then did they wander through the land: was there any place of escape (for them)?
050.037 Verily in this is a Message for any that has a heart and understanding or who gives ear and earnestly witnesses (the truth).
050.038 We created the heavens and the earth and all between them in Six Days, nor did any sense of weariness touch Us.
050.039 Bear, then, with patience, all that they say, and celebrate the praises of thy Lord, before the rising of the sun and before (its) setting.
050.040 And during part of the night, (also,) celebrate His praises, and (so likewise) after the postures of adoration.
050.041 And listen for the Day when the Caller will call out from a place quiet near,-
050.042 The Day when they will hear a (mighty) Blast in (very) truth: that will be the Day of Resurrection.
050.043 Verily it is We Who give Life and Death; and to Us is the Final Goal-
050.044 The Day when the Earth will be rent asunder, from (men) hurrying out: that will be a gathering together,- quite easy for Us.
050.045 We know best what they say; and thou art not one to overawe them by force. So admonish with the Qur'an such as fear My Warning!


Let us pray (Sura 20, Ayat 114) 'Ya Rabbi Zidni Ilma!' ('O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.') and seek spiritual help (ta'yid) to understand our great faith.
