Q (Qaaf)
45 verses, revealed in Mecca after Dispatched (Al-Mursalaat) before The Town (Al-Balad)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
Qaf. By the honored Qur'an... (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 are dead and turned to dust, this returning (to life) is most far-fetched." (3) Well do We know how the earth consumes their bodies, for with Us is a record unfailing. (4) They gave the lie to the Truth when it came to them. So they are now in a state of great perplexity. (5) So did they not see the sky above them how We have made it and beautified it, and there are no cracks in it? (6) And the earth - We spread it out and cast therein firmly set mountains and made grow therein [something] of every beautiful kind, (7) An insight and an admonition for every bondman penitent. (8) And We send down blessed water (rain) from the sky, then We produce therewith gardens and grain (every kind of harvests) that are reaped. (9) and tall palm-trees with their thickly-clustered dates, (10) A sustenance for the servants, and We give life thereby to a dead land; thus is the rising. (11) The people of Noah, dwellers of the Ra's, Thamud, (12) and so did 'Ad, and Pharaoh and Lot's brethren, (13) And the dwellers in the wood, and the folk of Tubb'a: every one denied their messengers, therefor My threat took effect. (14) What, were We wearied by the first creation? No, indeed; yet they are in doubt about a new creation. (15)
