Q (Qaaf)
45 verses, revealed in Mecca after Dispatched (Al-Mursalaat) before The Town (Al-Balad)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By Qaf and the glorious Quran, (you are the Messenger of God). (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) 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 all that the earth takes away of them, and a Book of Records is with Us. (4) Nay, they rejected the truth when it came to them, so they are (now) in a state of confusion. (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 forth, and have cast therein firm mountains, and have caused to grow therein of every beauteous kind of plants: (7) All these are to serve as eye openers and as a lesson to every being who is prone to turn (to the Truth). (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 tall palm-trees with their thickly-clustered dates, (10) as sustenance for My servants. With this We have brought the dead land back to life. Thus, will also be your resurrection. (11) The folk of Noah denied (the truth) before them, and (so did) the dwellers at Ar-Rass and (the tribe of) Thamud, (12) Ad, the Pharaoh, Lot, (13) And the dwellers of the Wood, and the people of Tubba'; everyone of them denied (their) Messengers, so My Threat took effect. (14) Were We then worn out by the first creation? Yet they are in doubt about a second creation. (15)
