In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
QAF. I CALL to witness the glorious Qur'an. (1) Nay, but they marvel that a warner has come to them from among them; and the unbelievers say, 'This is a marvellous thing! (2) to come back to life after we have died and become dust? That is most improbable!" (3) Well do We know how the earth consumes their bodies, for with Us is a record unfailing. (4) But they deny the Truth when it comes to them: so they are in a confused state. (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) And the earth - We spread it out and cast therein firmly set mountains and made grow therein [something] of every beautiful kind, (7) as a lesson and reminder for every human being who turns to God; (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 clusters of dates (10) A provision for (Allah's) slaves. And We give life therewith to a dead land. Thus will be the resurrection (of the dead). (11) [Long] before those [who now deny resurrection] did Noah's people give the lie to this truth, and [so did] the folk of Ar-Rass, and [the tribes of] Thamud (12) and Aad, Pharaoh and the brothers 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) Could We, then, be [thought of as being] worn out by the first creation? Nay - but some people are [still] lost in doubt about [the possibility of] a new creation! (15)
