Q (Qaaf)
45 verses, revealed in Mecca after Dispatched (Al-Mursalaat) before The Town (Al-Balad)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Qaf. By the honored 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) What, when we are dead and turned to dust? That indeed would be an unlikely return' (3) We know very well what the earth takes away from them: We hold a book which records all things. (4) But they denied the truth when it came to them, so they are in a confused condition. (5) What, have they never observed the heaven above them, (and seen) how We built and adorned it, leaving no crack? (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) A perception and an understanding, for every bondman who inclines. (8) And We sent down the auspicious water from the sky, therefore producing gardens with it, and the grain that is harvested. (9) And lofty date-palms with ranged clusters, (10) As sustenance for the bondmen; and with it We revived a dead city; this is how you will be raised. (11) Denied before them (i.e. these pagans of Makkah who denied you, O Muhammad SAW) the people of Nuh (Noah), and the dwellers of Rass, and the Thamud, (12) Ad, the Pharaoh, Lot, (13) and the people of Aykah, and the people of Tubba'. They all gave the lie to the Messengers. Thereafter My threat of chastisement against them was fulfilled. (14) Did We, then, become worn out by the first creation? Not at all; but they are in doubt about a fresh creation. (15)
