45 verses, revealed in Mecca after Dispatched (Al-Mursalaat) before The Town (Al-Balad)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Qaaf. By the Glorious Koran! (1) No, but they marvel that from among themselves a warner has come to them. The unbelievers say (in mockery): 'This is a marvelous thing! (2) What! When we are dead and reduced to mere dust, (shall we be raised to life)? Such a return is far-fetched.” (3) We already know how much of them the earth takes away: With Us is a record guarding (the full account). (4) But they deny the Truth when it comes to them: so they are in a confused state. (5) Did they never observe the sky above them: how We built it and beautified it; and it has no cracks; (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 water as a blessing from the sky, and grow gardens with it and the grain for harvest, (9) and tall palm-trees with spathes compact, (10) A sustenance for the servants, and We give life thereby to a dead land; thus is the rising. (11) And before them the people of Nuh belied, and so did the dwellers of Rass and the Thamud. (12) and Ad, and Pharaoh, and Lot's brethren, (13) And the dwellers of the Wood and people of Tubba'. Each of them denied the apostles. So My threat became a reality. (14) So did We tire by creating the first time? Rather they doubt being created again. (15)
