Q (Qaaf)
45 verses, revealed in Mecca after Dispatched (Al-Mursalaat) before The Town (Al-Balad)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Qaf. By the glorious Qur'an. (1) But nay - they deem it strange that a warner should have come unto them from their own midst; and so these deniers of the truth are saying, "A strange thing is this! (2) “When we are dead and have turned to dust, will we be raised again? That return is impossible!” (3) We know that which the earth takes of them (their dead bodies), and with Us is a Book preserved (i.e. the Book of Decrees). (4) Aye! they belie the truth when it cometh unto them; wherefore they are in an affair confused. (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) We spread out the earth and set upon it firm mountains, and We cause every delightful thing to grow in it (7) for an insight and a reminder to every penitent servant. (8) And We sent down the auspicious water from the sky, therefore producing gardens with it, and the grain that is harvested. (9) And lofty date-palms with ranged clusters, (10) all this as sustenance for Our servants. And thus We do bring the dead land back to life with water. Such shall be the coming forth (of human beings from the earth). (11) Before them, the nation of Noah, the nation of ArRass belied and so did Thamood (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) Were We then worn out by the first creation? Yet they are in doubt about a new creation. (15)
