47. Unto Him is referred (all) knowledge of the Hour. And no fruits burst forth from 
their sheaths, and no female carrieth or bringeth forth but with His knowledge. And on 
the day when He calleth unto them: Where are now My partners? they will say: We confess 
unto Thee, not one of us is a witness (for them).
Yusuf Ali
47. To Him is referred the Knowledge of the Hour (of Judgment: He knows all): no 
date-fruit comes out of its sheath nor does a female conceive (within her womb) nor 
bring forth (young) but by His Knowledge.  The Day that (Allah) will propound to them 
the (question) "Where are the partners (ye attributed) to Me?" They will say "We do 
assure thee not one of us can bear witness!"

48. And those to whom they used to cry of old have failed them, and they perceive they 
have no place of refuge.
Yusuf Ali
48. The (deities) they used to invoke aforetime will leave them in the lurch and they 
will perceive that they have no way of escape.

49. Man tireth not of praying for good, and if all toucheth him, then he is disheartened, 
Yusuf Ali
49. Man does not weary of asking for good (things) but if ill touches him he gives up all 
hope (and) is lost in despair.

50. And verily, if We cause him to taste mercy after some hurt that hath touched him, he 
will say: This is my own; and I deem not that the Hour will ever rise, and if I am brought 
back to my Lord, I surely shall be better off with Him But We verily shall tell those who 
disbelieve (all) that they did, and We verily shall make them taste hard punishment
Yusuf Ali
50. When We give him a taste of some mercy from Ourselves after some adversity has touched 
him he is sure to say "This is due to my (merit): I think not that the Hour (of Judgment) 
will (ever) be established; but if I am brought back to my Lord I have (much) good (stored) 
in His sight!" But We will show the Unbelievers the truth of all that they did and We shall 
give them the taste of a severe Penalty.

51. When We show favor unto man, he withdraweth and turneth aside, but when ill toucheth him 
then he aboundeth in prayer.
Yusuf Ali
51. When We bestow favors on man he turns away and gets himself remote on his side (instead 
of coming to Us); and when Evil seizes him (he comes) full of prolonged prayer!

52. Bethink you: If it is from Allah and ye reject it Who is further astray than one who is 
at open feud (with Allah)?
Yusuf Ali
52. Say: "See ye if the (Revelation) is (really) from Allah and yet do ye reject it? Who is 
more astray than one who is in schism far (from any purpose)?"

53. We shall show them Our portents on the horizons and within themselves until it will be 
manifest unto them that it is the Truth. Doth not thy Lord suffice, since He is Witness over 
all things?
Yusuf Ali
53. Soon will We show them Our Signs in the (furthest) regions (of the earth) and in their 
own souls until it becomes manifest to them that this is the Truth.  Is it not enough that 
thy Lord doth witness all things?

54. How! Are they still in doubt about the meeting with their Lord? Lo! Is not He surrounding 
all things?
Yusuf Ali
54. Ah indeed! are they in doubt concerning the Meeting with their Lord? Ah indeed! it is He 
that doth encompass all things!
