Q (Qaaf)
45 verses, revealed in Mecca after Dispatched (Al-Mursalaat) before The Town (Al-Balad)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Qaf. [These letters (Qaf, etc.) are one of the miracles of the Quran, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. By the Glorious Quran. (1) Nay, but they marvel that a warner of their own hath come unto them; and the disbelievers say: This is a strange thing: (2) What! when we are dead and have become dust? That is afar (from probable) return. (3) We know indeed what the earth diminishes of them, and with Us is a writing that preserves. (4) But they denied the truth when it came to them, so they are in a state of confusion. (5) What, have they not beheld heaven above them, how We have built it, and decked it out fair, and it has no cracks? (6) We stretched the earth and placed upon it firm stabilisers and We made every kind of splendid thing to grow upon it (7) As instruction and reminder to every penitent creature. (8) And We send down from the skies water rich in blessings, and cause thereby gardens to grow, and fields of grain, (9) And lofty palm trees having fruit arranged in layers - (10) as sustenance apportioned to men; and by [all] this We bring dead land to life: [and] even so will be [man's] coming-forth from death. (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) The Companions of the Wood, and the People of Tubba'; each one (of them) rejected the messengers, and My warning was duly fulfilled (in them). (14) What, were We wearied by the first creation? No indeed; but they are in uncertainty as to the new creation. (15)
