Q (Qaaf)
45 verses, revealed in Mecca after Dispatched (Al-Mursalaat) before The Town (Al-Balad)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Qaf: By the Glorious Qur'an (Thou art Allah's Messenger). (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 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 (of their bodies) the earth will consume. With Us there is a Book that contains all records. (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 sky above them, how We have fashioned and adorned it, and it has no flaw? (6) We spread out the earth and set upon it solid mountains and We brought forth from it all kinds of delightful plants, (7) An insight and an admonition for every bondman penitent. (8) And We have sent down from the heaven water and blest wherewith We have caused gardens to grow and the grain reaped. (9) And tall date-palms with their spathes pile on pile (10) As a provision for our bondmen; and therewith We have quickened a dead land. Even so will be the coming forth. (11) Before them, the people of Noah and the people of Rass denied this truth; and so did the people of Thamud. (12) and Ad, and Pharaoh, and Lot's brethren, (13) And the companions of the thicket and the people of Tubba'. All denied the messengers, so My threat was justly fulfilled. (14) Were We then worn out by the first creation? Yet they are in doubt about a second creation. (15)
