Q (Qaaf)
45 verses, revealed in Mecca after Dispatched (Al-Mursalaat) before The Town (Al-Balad)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
Qaf. By the glorious Qur'an. (1) Nay, they wonder that there has come to them a warner (Muhammad SAW) from among themselves. So the disbelievers say: "This is a strange thing! (2) What! when we are dead and have become dust? That is afar (from probable) return. (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) But they denied the truth when it came to them, so they are in a confused condition. (5) Have they not observed the sky above them and marked how We have built it and adorned it, leaving no flaws in it; (6) And (how) We have spread the earth, and placed mountains as anchors in it, and have grown all kinds of beautiful pairs in it? (7) A perception and an understanding, for every bondman who inclines. (8) And We sent down out of heaven water blessed, and caused to grow thereby gardens and grain of harvest (9) And lofty date-palms with ranged clusters, (10) As a provision for our bondmen; and therewith We have quickened a dead land. Even so will be the coming forth. (11) Before these, the people of Nooh had denied, and so did the dwellers of Rass and the Thamud. (12) And 'Aad and Pharaoh and the brothers of Lot (13) And the dwellers of the grove and the people of Tuba; all rejected the apostles, so My threat came to pass. (14) Are We then wearied with the first creation? Aye! they are in dubiety regarding a new creation. (15)
