Verse 50:11

رِّزۡقًا لِّلۡعِبَادِ​ ۙ وَاَحۡيَيۡنَا بِهٖ بَلۡدَةً مَّيۡـتًا​ ؕ كَذٰلِكَ الۡخُـرُوۡجُ‏

A provision for My servants. And with all this We give new life to a dead land. Thus will be the Resurrection.

Verse 50:12

كَذَّبَتۡ قَبۡلَهُمۡ قَوۡمُ نُوۡحٍ وَّاَصۡحٰبُ الرَّسِّ وَثَمُوۡدُۙ‏

Before them denied the message, the people of Noah, the dwellers of the valley of Ar-Rass and Thamud. [25:38]

Verse 50:13

وَعَادٌ وَّفِرۡعَوۡنُ وَاِخۡوَانُ لُوۡطٍۙ‏

And the tribe of 'Aad, and Pharaoh, and the brethren of Lot.

Verse 50:14

وَّاَصۡحٰبُ الۡاَيۡكَةِ وَقَوۡمُ تُبَّعٍ​ؕ كُلٌّ كَذَّبَ الرُّسُلَ فَحَقَّ وَعِيۡدِ‏

And the dwellers in the wooded dales (of Midyan), and the people of King Tubba'. All of them denied their Messengers, and so, My warning came to pass. [44:37] [The Himairi Tribe had gained control of the kingdom of Sheba in 115 BC and ruled until 300 CE. Tubba' was the most prominent of their kings, and he was a Unitarian Christian like the vast majority of Christians before the Conference of Nicea in Rome in 325 CE]

Verse 50:15

اَفَعَيِيۡنَا بِالۡخَـلۡقِ الۡاَوَّلِ​ؕ بَلۡ هُمۡ فِىۡ لَبۡسٍ مِّنۡ خَلۡقٍ جَدِيۡدٍ‏

Were We then weary with the first creation that they should be lost in doubt about a new creation? [46:33]

Verse 50:16

وَلَقَدۡ خَلَقۡنَا الۡاِنۡسَانَ وَنَعۡلَمُ مَا تُوَسۡوِسُ بِهٖ نَفۡسُهٗ ۖۚ وَنَحۡنُ اَقۡرَبُ اِلَيۡهِ مِنۡ حَبۡلِ الۡوَرِيۡدِ‏

We have created man and We know the whispering that goes on within his mind (all the intricacies of his thought process), for, We are nearer to him than his Vena cava. [Habl-il-wareed is usually translated as Jugular vein or neck-vein. But Habl = Rope = Cable = A thing that binds = Guarantee = Indispensable= Binding pledge = Holding from disintegration = Holding together. Wareed = Vein. So, my rendition of Habl-il-wareed to Vena cava, the great veins, superior and inferior. They ultimately return the blood from the brain and the body to the heart. The use of 'vein' in this verse, instead of 'artery', seems to allude to the superiority of mind over body. What is being carried from the brain to the heart is through veins]

Verse 50:17

اِذۡ يَتَلَقَّى الۡمُتَلَقِّيٰنِ عَنِ الۡيَمِيۡنِ وَعَنِ الشِّمَالِ قَعِيۡدٌ‏ 

And so it may happen that two conflicting demands in his mind, positioned in opposite directions, pull him apart. [His reason and his emotions 50:21]

Verse 50:18

مَا يَلۡفِظُ مِنۡ قَوۡلٍ اِلَّا لَدَيۡهِ رَقِيۡبٌ عَتِيۡدٌ‏

Not even a word can he utter but there is an ever-vigilant watcher with him. [The Law of Requital makes a meticulous record]

Verse 50:19

وَ جَآءَتۡ سَكۡرَةُ الۡمَوۡتِ بِالۡحَـقِّ​ؕ ذٰلِكَ مَا كُنۡتَ مِنۡهُ تَحِيۡدُ‏ 

And then, the twilight of death brings with it the inevitable truth, 'This is the very thing you would rather evade.'

Verse 50:20

وَنُفِخَ فِى الصُّوۡرِ ​ؕ ذٰ لِكَ يَوۡمُ الۡوَعِيۡدِ‏

(Then there is a long state of sleep 36:52.) And the Trumpet is blown. This is the Day promised.
