;

1 . Qaf. By the Qur´an glorious, We have sent thee as a warner.

2 . Aye! they marvel that there hath come Unto them a warner from among themselves; so the infidels Say: this is a thing wondrous!

3 . Shell We be brought back when we are dead and have become dust? That is a return remote!

4 . Surely We know that which the earth consumeth of them, and with Us is, Book preserved.

5 . Aye! they belie the truth when it cometh Unto them; wherefore they are in an affair confused.

6 . Have they not looked up to the heaven above them, in what wise We have constructed and bedecked it, and that therein is no rift?

7 . And the earth! We have spread it forth, and have cast therein firm mountains, and have caused to grow therein of every beauteous kind of plants:

8 . An insight and an admonition for every bondman penitent.

9 . And We have sent down from the heaven water brest wherewith We have caused gardens to grow and the grain reaped.

10 . And tall date-palms laden with clusters ranged.

11 . As a provision for our bondmen; and therewith We have quickened a dead land. Even so will be the coming forth.

12 . And before them the people of Nuh belied, and so did the dwellers Of Rass and the Thamud.

13 . And the A-ad, and Fir´awn. and the brethren of Lut.

14 . And the dwellers in the wood, and the people of Tubba. Each one belied the apostles, wherefore fulfilled was My judgement.

15 . Are We then wearied with the first creation? Aye! they are in dubiety regarding a new creation.

16 . And assuredly We have created man and We know whatsoever his soul whispereth Unto him, and We are nigher Unto him than his jugular vein.

17 . Behold! when the two receivers receive-one on the right hand and one on the left a sitter.

18 . Not a word he uttereth but there is with him a watcher ready.

19 . And the stupor of death will come in truth: this is that which thou hast been shunning.

20 . And the trumpet will be blown: this is the Day of the Threatening.

21 . And there shall come every soul therewith shall be a driver and a witness.

22 . Assuredly thou wast in neglect thereof; now We have removed from off thee thy veil, so thy sight Today is piercing.

23 . And his companion will say: this is that which with me is ready.

24 . Cast ye twain into Hell every Person rebellious, contumacious.

25 . Hinderer o fgood, trespasser, doubter

26 . Who set up with Allah another god. So cast him ye twain into the torment severe.

27 . His companion will say: O our Lord! caused him not to transgress but he was himself in error far off.

28 . Allah will say: wrangle not in My presence, and had already proferred Unto you the threat.

29 . The Word will not be changed in My presence, nor am an oppressor at all Unto My bondmen.

30 . Mention the Day whereon We shall say Unto the Hell: art thou filled? and it will say: is there yet any addition?

31 . And brought nigh will be the Garden Unto the God-fearing, not far-off.

32 . This is that which ye were promised: for every oft- returning heedful one.

33 . That feareth the Compassionate in the unseen and cometh to Him with a heart penitent:

34 . Enter it in peace. This is the Day of Abidence.

35 . Theirs therein will be whatsoever they list; and with Us will be yet more.

36 . And how many a generation have We destroyed before them, who were mightier in power than they, and they traversed the cities! No place of refuge could they find.

37 . Verily herein is an admonition Unto him who hath a heart, or giveth ear while he is heedful.

38 . And assuredly We created the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is in between the twain in six days, and there touched Us naught of weariness.

39 . So bear thou patiently with that which they say, and hallow the praise of thine Lord before the rising of the sun and before its setting.

40 . And in the night-time hallow Him, and also after the prescribed prostration.

41 . And hearken thou: the Day whereon the caller will call from a place quite near.

42 . The Day whereon they will surely hear the shout - that is the Day of coming forth.

43 . Verily We! it is We Who give life and cause death, and Unto Us is the journeying.

44 . That shall be the Day whereon the earth will be cleft from off them as they hasten forth. That shall be a gathering Unto Us easy.

45 . We are the best Knower of that which they say, and thou art not over them over them tyrant. Wherefore admonish thou by the Qur´an him who feareth My threat.
