Q (Qaaf)
45 verses, revealed in Mecca after Dispatched (Al-Mursalaat) before The Town (Al-Balad)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Qaf. By the glorious Koran! (1) Nay, they wonder that there has come to them a warner (Muhammad SAW) from among themselves. So the disbelievers say: "This is a strange thing! (2) "What! When we die and become dust, (shall we live again?) That is a (sort of) return far (from our understanding)." (3) We already know how much of them the earth takes away: With Us is a record guarding (the full account). (4) They gave the lie to the Truth when it came to them. So they are now in a state of great perplexity. (5) Have they not looked at the heaven above them - how We structured it and adorned it and [how] it has no rifts? (6) And the earth - We spread it out and cast therein firmly set mountains and made grow therein [something] of every beautiful kind, (7) All these are to serve as eye openers and as a lesson to every being who is prone to turn (to the Truth). (8) We also sent down blessed water from the heaven, wherewith We caused gardens and harvest-grain to grow, (9) And tall date-palms with their spathes pile on pile (10) A sustenance for the servants, and We give life thereby to a dead land; thus is the rising. (11) The people of Noah denied before them, and the companions of the well and Thamud (12) As did the people of 'Ad and Pharaoh and the brethren of Lot, (13) and the dwellers of the Wood, and the people of Tubba': every one denied their messengers, and so My warning came true. (14) Did We, then, become worn out by the first creation? Not at all; but they are in doubt about a fresh creation. (15)
