Q (Qaaf)
45 verses, revealed in Mecca after Dispatched (Al-Mursalaat) before The Town (Al-Balad)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
Qaf. CONSIDER this sublime Qur'an! (1) Nay; they wondered that a warner should have come to them from among themselves. The unbelievers said: “This indeed 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 know what the earth diminishes of them; with Us is a book recording. (4) But no! They called the truth a lie when it came 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 have We spread out, and have flung firm hills therein, and have caused of every lovely kind to grow thereon, (7) As instruction and reminder to every penitent creature. (8) And We send down from the sky rain charted with blessing, and We produce therewith gardens and Grain for harvests; (9) and tall palmtrees with compact spathes (10) as a provision for human beings; and by [all] this We bring dead land to life. Such shall be the Resurrection. (11) The people of Noah denied before them, and the companions of the well and Thamud (12) As did the people of 'Ad and Pharaoh and the brethren of Lot, (13) And the dwellers of the Wood and people of Tubba'. Each of them denied the apostles. So My threat became a reality. (14) Were We exhausted by the act of the first creation? And yet they are confused about a new creation. (15)
