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
By Qaf and the glorious Quran, (you are the Messenger of God). (1) Indeed, they are astonished that a warner should have come to them from among themselves. So these deniers of the truth say, "This is indeed a strange thing, (2) What, when we are dead and become dust? That is a far returning!' (3) We already know how much of them the earth takes away: With Us is a record guarding (the full account). (4) In fact, they have rejected the truth that has come to them, thus, they live in confusion. (5) What, have they never observed the heaven above them, (and seen) how We built and adorned it, leaving no crack? (6) (Have they not seen) how We have spread out the earth, placed on it firm mountains and have made all kinds of flourishing pairs of plants grow? (7) thus offering an insight and a reminder unto every human being who willingly turns unto God. (8) And We send down from the skies water rich in blessings, and cause thereby gardens to grow, and fields of grain, (9) and tall palmtrees with compact spathes (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, Ar-Rass and Thamud denied before you, (12) And Ad and Firon and Lut's brethren, (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)
