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. [These letters (Qaf, etc.) are one of the miracles of the Quran, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. By the Glorious Quran. (1) In fact, it seems odd (to the pagans) that a warner from their own people has come to them. The disbelievers have said, "It is very strange (2) that after we die and become dust, we shall be brought back to life again. This seems far from reality". (3) We know what the earth consumes of them, for We have the Book that preserves everything. (4) In fact they denied the Truth when it came to them, so they are now in a dilemma. (5) Have they not then observed the sky above them, how We have constructed it and beautified it, and how there are no rifts therein? (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 their thickly-clustered spathes; (10) As a provision for men, and enlivened a region that was dead. Even thus will be the life after death. (11) Before them, the people of Noah and the people of Rass denied this truth; and so did the people 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) What, were We wearied by the first creation? No, indeed; yet they are in doubt about a new creation. (15)
