Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Qaf; by oath of the Glorious Qur’an. (1) Nay, but they marvel that a warner of their own hath come unto them; and the disbelievers say: This is a strange thing: (2) Shall we be brought back when we are dead and have become dust? That is a return remote! (3) We know very well what the earth takes away from them: We hold a book which records all things. (4) Rather, they belied the truth when it came to them, and now they are in a state of confusion. (5) What, have they not beheld heaven above them, how We have built it, and decked it out fair, and it has no cracks? (6) We stretched the earth and placed upon it firm stabilisers and We made every kind of splendid thing to grow upon it (7) An insight and an admonition for every bondman penitent. (8) and We have sent down from the sky blessed water with which We have brought forth gardens and grain to be harvested, (9) And tall (and stately) palm-trees, with shoots of fruit-stalks, piled one over another;- (10) as sustenance for My servants. With this We have brought the dead land back to life. Thus, will also be your resurrection. (11) The people of Noah, Ar-Rass and Thamud denied before you, (12) Ad, the Pharaoh, Lot, (13) And the dwellers in the wood, and the folk of Tubb'a: every one denied their messengers, therefor My threat took effect. (14) So did We tire by creating the first time? Rather they doubt being created again. (15)
