Qaf. By the Qur'an glorious, We have sent thee as a warner. (1) Nay, but they marvel that a warner has come to them from among them; and the unbelievers say, 'This is a marvellous thing! (2) “When we are dead and have turned to dust, will we be raised again? That return is impossible!” (3) We already know how much of them the earth takes away: With Us is a record guarding (the full account). (4) Nay, but they cried lies to the truth when it came to them, and so they are in a case confused. (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 the earth, We have made it plain and cast in it mountains and We have made to grow therein of all beautiful kinds, (7) As instruction and reminder to every penitent creature. (8) And We have sent down from the heaven water and blest wherewith We have caused gardens to grow and the grain reaped. (9) and tall palm-trees with their thickly-clustered dates, (10) As sustenance for (Allah's) Servants;- and We give (new) life therewith to land that is dead: Thus will be the Resurrection. (11) The people of Noah denied before them, and the companions of the well and Thamud (12) And (the tribe of) A'ad, and Pharaoh, and the brethren of Lot, (13) And the dwellers in the wood, and the people of Tubba; each one belied the apostles, wherefore fulfilled was My judgement. (14) So did We tire by creating the first time? Rather they doubt being created again. (15)
