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; by oath of the Glorious Qur’an. (1) But they wonder that there has come to them a warner from among themselves, and the disbelievers say, "This is an amazing thing. (2) to come back to life after we have died and become dust? That is most improbable!" (3) We already know how much of them the earth takes away: With Us is a record guarding (the full account). (4) In fact they denied the Truth when it came to them, so they are now in a dilemma. (5) Have they not seen how We have established the sky above them and decked it without gaps and cracks? (6) And the earth -- We stretched it forth, and cast on it firm mountains, and We caused to grow therein of every joyous kind (7) Giving insight and a reminder for every servant who turns [to Allah]. (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 the tall palm-trees having spadices closely set one above another, (10) as a provision for human beings; and by [all] this We bring dead land to life. Such shall be the Resurrection. (11) And before them the people of Nuh belied, and so did the dwellers of Rass and the Thamud. (12) And the A-ad, and Fir'awn, and the brethren of Lut. (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 exhausted by the act of the first creation? And yet they are confused about a new creation. (15)
