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
By Qaf and the glorious Quran, (you are the Messenger of God). (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) When we are dead and have become dust (shall we be brought back again)? That would be a far return! (3) We know all what the earth decreases from them; and with Us is a Book that retains. (4) But no! They called the truth a lie when it came to them; so they are in a confused state. (5) Have they not looked up to the heaven above them, in what wise We have constructed and bedecked it, and that therein is no rift? (6) And the earth! We have spread it out, and set thereon mountains standing firm, and have produced therein every kind of lovely growth (plants). (7) as a lesson and a reminder to every penitent worshiper. (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 dates, (10) a provision for the servants, and thereby We revived a land that was dead. Even so is the coming forth. (11) Before them was denied (the Hereafter) by the People of Noah, the Companions of the Rass, the Thamud, (12) Ad, the Pharaoh, Lot, (13) the dwellers of the Thicket and the nation of Tubba', all belied their Messengers, therefore My threat was realized. (14) Did We fail to accomplish the first creation? Of course, We did not; We have all power over all things. Yet they are confused about a new creation. (15)
