Q (Qaaf)
45 verses, revealed in Mecca after Dispatched (Al-Mursalaat) before The Town (Al-Balad)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
Qaf. By the glorious Koran! (1) They are rather surprised that a warner from among themselves has come to them. So the unbelievers say: "This is astonishing: (2) When we have died and have become dust, [we will return to life]? That is a distant return." (3) We already know how much of them (of their bodies) the earth will consume. With Us there is a Book that contains all records. (4) But they denied the truth when it came to them, so they are in a confused condition. (5) Do they not look at the sky above them - how We have built it and made it beautiful and free of all faults? (6) And the earth have We spread out, and have flung firm hills therein, and have caused of every lovely kind to grow thereon, (7) Giving insight and a reminder for every servant who turns [to Allah]. (8) And We send down from the cloud water abounding in good, then We cause to grow thereby gardens and the grain that is reaped, (9) And lofty palm trees having fruit arranged in layers - (10) As sustenance for (Allah's) Servants;- and We give (new) life therewith to land that is dead: Thus will be the Resurrection. (11) The people of Noah denied before them, and the companions of the well and Thamud (12) And 'Aad and Pharaoh and the brothers of Lot (13) And the Dwellers of the Woods, and the people of Tubb’a; each one of them one denied the Noble Messengers, so My promised punishment proved true. (14) Are We then wearied with the first creation? Aye! they are in dubiety regarding a new creation. (15)
