50. Surah Qaf – Qaf [ق]


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ



قٓ ۚ وَالْقُرْءَانِ الْمَجِيدِ ﴿ق:١

1. Qaf. By the honored Qur’an


بَلْ عَجِبُوٓا۟ أَن جَآءَهُم مُّنذِرٌ مِّنْهُمْ فَقَالَ الْكٰفِرُونَ هٰذَا شَىْءٌ عَجِيبٌ ﴿ق:٢

2. But they wonder that there has come to them a warner from among themselves, and the disbelievers say, “This is an amazing thing.


أَءِذَا مِتْنَا وَكُنَّا تُرَابًا ۖ ذٰلِكَ رَجْعٌۢ بَعِيدٌ ﴿ق:٣

3. When we have died and have become dust, [we will return to life]? That is a distant return.”


قَدْ عَلِمْنَا مَا تَنقُصُ الْأَرْضُ مِنْهُمْ ۖ وَعِندَنَا كِتٰبٌ حَفِيظٌۢ ﴿ق:٤

4. We know what the earth diminishes of them, and with Us is a retaining record.


بَلْ كَذَّبُوا۟ بِالْحَقِّ لَمَّا جَآءَهُمْ فَهُمْ فِىٓ أَمْرٍ مَّرِيجٍ ﴿ق:٥

5. But they denied the truth when it came to them, so they are in a confused condition.


أَفَلَمْ يَنظُرُوٓا۟ إِلَى السَّمَآءِ فَوْقَهُمْ كَيْفَ بَنَيْنٰهَا وَزَيَّنّٰهَا وَمَا لَهَا مِن فُرُوجٍ ﴿ق:٦

6. Have they not looked at the heaven above them – how We structured it and adorned it and [how] it has no rifts?


وَالْأَرْضَ مَدَدْنٰهَا وَأَلْقَيْنَا فِيهَا رَوٰسِىَ وَأَنۢبَتْنَا فِيهَا مِن كُلِّ زَوْجٍۭ بَهِيجٍ ﴿ق:٧

7. And the earth – We spread it out and cast therein firmly set mountains and made grow therein [something] of every beautiful kind,


تَبْصِرَةً وَذِكْرَىٰ لِكُلِّ عَبْدٍ مُّنِيبٍ ﴿ق:٨

8. Giving insight and a reminder for every servant who turns [to Allah ].


وَنَزَّلْنَا مِنَ السَّمَآءِ مَآءً مُّبٰرَكًا فَأَنۢبَتْنَا بِهِۦ جَنّٰتٍ وَحَبَّ الْحَصِيدِ ﴿ق:٩

9. And We have sent down blessed rain from the sky and made grow thereby gardens and grain from the harvest


وَالنَّخْلَ بَاسِقٰتٍ لَّهَا طَلْعٌ نَّضِيدٌ ﴿ق:١۰

10. And lofty palm trees having fruit arranged in layers –


رِّزْقًا لِّلْعِبَادِ ۖ وَأَحْيَيْنَا بِهِۦ بَلْدَةً مَّيْتًا ۚ كَذٰلِكَ الْخُرُوجُ ﴿ق:١١

11. As provision for the servants, and We have given life thereby to a dead land. Thus is the resurrection.


كَذَّبَتْ قَبْلَهُمْ قَوْمُ نُوحٍ وَأَصْحٰبُ الرَّسِّ وَثَمُودُ ﴿ق:١٢

12. The people of Noah denied before them, and the companions of the well and Thamud


وَعَادٌ وَفِرْعَوْنُ وَإِخْوٰنُ لُوطٍ ﴿ق:١٣

13. And ‘Aad and Pharaoh and the brothers of Lot


وَأَصْحٰبُ الْأَيْكَةِ وَقَوْمُ تُبَّعٍ ۚ كُلٌّ كَذَّبَ الرُّسُلَ فَحَقَّ وَعِيدِ ﴿ق:١٤

14. And the companions of the thicket and the people of Tubba’. All denied the messengers, so My threat was justly fulfilled.


أَفَعَيِينَا بِالْخَلْقِ الْأَوَّلِ ۚ بَلْ هُمْ فِى لَبْسٍ مِّنْ خَلْقٍ جَدِيدٍ ﴿ق:١٥

15. Did We fail in the first creation? But they are in confusion over a new creation.


وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسٰنَ وَنَعْلَمُ مَا تُوَسْوِسُ بِهِۦ نَفْسُهُۥ ۖ وَنَحْنُ أَقْرَبُ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ حَبْلِ الْوَرِيدِ ﴿ق:١٦

16. And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein


إِذْ يَتَلَقَّى الْمُتَلَقِّيَانِ عَنِ الْيَمِينِ وَعَنِ الشِّمَالِ قَعِيدٌ ﴿ق:١٧

17. When the two receivers receive, seated on the right and on the left.


مَّا يَلْفِظُ مِن قَوْلٍ إِلَّا لَدَيْهِ رَقِيبٌ عَتِيدٌ ﴿ق:١٨

18. Man does not utter any word except that with him is an observer prepared [to record].


وَجَآءَتْ سَكْرَةُ الْمَوْتِ بِالْحَقِّ ۖ ذٰلِكَ مَا كُنتَ مِنْهُ تَحِيدُ ﴿ق:١٩

19. And the intoxication of death will bring the truth; that is what you were trying to avoid.


وَنُفِخَ فِى الصُّورِ ۚ ذٰلِكَ يَوْمُ الْوَعِيدِ ﴿ق:٢۰

20. And the Horn will be blown. That is the Day of [carrying out] the threat.


وَجَآءَتْ كُلُّ نَفْسٍ مَّعَهَا سَآئِقٌ وَشَهِيدٌ ﴿ق:٢١

21. And every soul will come, with it a driver and a witness.


لَّقَدْ كُنتَ فِى غَفْلَةٍ مِّنْ هٰذَا فَكَشَفْنَا عَنكَ غِطَآءَكَ فَبَصَرُكَ الْيَوْمَ حَدِيدٌ ﴿ق:٢٢

22. [It will be said], “You were certainly in unmindfulness of this, and We have removed from you your cover, so your sight, this Day, is sharp.”


وَقَالَ قَرِينُهُۥ هٰذَا مَا لَدَىَّ عَتِيدٌ ﴿ق:٢٣

23. And his companion, [the angel], will say, “This [record] is what is with me, prepared.”

26. Who made [as equal] with Allah another deity; then throw him into the severe punishment.”


قَالَ قَرِينُهُۥ رَبَّنَا مَآ أَطْغَيْتُهُۥ وَلٰكِن كَانَ فِى ضَلٰلٍۭ بَعِيدٍ ﴿ق:٢٧

27. His [devil] companion will say, “Our Lord, I did not make him transgress, but he [himself] was in extreme error.”


قَالَ لَا تَخْتَصِمُوا۟ لَدَىَّ وَقَدْ قَدَّمْتُ إِلَيْكُم بِالْوَعِيدِ ﴿ق:٢٨

28. [ Allah ] will say, “Do not dispute before Me, while I had already presented to you the warning.


مَا يُبَدَّلُ الْقَوْلُ لَدَىَّ وَمَآ أَنَا۠ بِظَلّٰمٍ لِّلْعَبِيدِ ﴿ق:٢٩

مَّنْ خَشِىَ الرَّحْمٰنَ بِالْغَيْبِ وَجَآءَ بِقَلْبٍ مُّنِيبٍ ﴿ق:٣٣

33. Who feared the Most Merciful unseen and came with a heart returning [in repentance].


ادْخُلُوهَا بِسَلٰمٍ ۖ ذٰلِكَ يَوْمُ الْخُلُودِ ﴿ق:٣٤

35. They will have whatever they wish therein, and with Us is more.


وَكَمْ أَهْلَكْنَا قَبْلَهُم مِّن قَرْنٍ هُمْ أَشَدُّ مِنْهُم بَطْشًا فَنَقَّبُوا۟ فِى الْبِلٰدِ هَلْ مِن مَّحِيصٍ ﴿ق:٣٦

36. And how many a generation before them did We destroy who were greater than them in [striking] power and had explored throughout the lands. Is there any place of escape?


إِنَّ فِى ذٰلِكَ لَذِكْرَىٰ لِمَن كَانَ لَهُۥ قَلْبٌ أَوْ أَلْقَى السَّمْعَ وَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ ﴿ق:٣٧

37. Indeed in that is a reminder for whoever has a heart or who listens while he is present [in mind].

يَوْمَ يَسْمَعُونَ الصَّيْحَةَ بِالْحَقِّ ۚ ذٰلِكَ يَوْمُ الْخُرُوجِ ﴿ق:٤٢

42. The Day they will hear the blast [of the Horn] in truth. That is the Day of Emergence [from the graves].

44. On the Day the earth breaks away from them [and they emerge] rapidly; that is a gathering easy for Us.


نَّحْنُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا يَقُولُونَ ۖ وَمَآ أَنتَ عَلَيْهِم بِجَبَّارٍ ۖ فَذَكِّرْ بِالْقُرْءَانِ مَن يَخَافُ وَعِيدِ ﴿ق:٤٥
