In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Qãf. By the Glorious Qur’an (O Muhammad you are the Rasool of Allah).[1] But they wonder that there has come to them a warner from among themselves. So the unbelievers say: “This indeed is very strange[2] that after we are dead and have become dust we shall be raised to life again, such a return is far from reason."[3] We know all that the earth consumes of their bodies, and We have a Book which keeps records of everything.[4] Nay! But these people deny the truth when it comes to them, and they are confused.[5] Have they never looked at the sky above them, and marked how We have made it and adorned it, and there are no flaws in it?[6] And the earth, how We have spread it out and set upon it mountains and caused to grow in it every kind of beautiful vegetation.[7] All these things are eye-openers and a reminder for every servant returning to Allah.[8] We send down blessed water from the sky with which We bring forth gardens and the harvest grain,[9] and tall palm trees laden with clusters of dates, piled one over another,[10] a sustenance for the servants; thereby giving new life to dead land. That is how the resurrection will be of the dead from the earth.[11] Before, the people of Nüh and the dwellers of Ar-Rass denied this truth and so did Thamüd,[12] ‘Ad, Fir‘on (Pharaoh) and the brethren of Lüt,[13] the dwellers of the Al-Aiykah and the people of Tubba; all of them disbelieved their Rasools and thus brought down upon them My threatened scourge.[14] Were We fatigued with the first creation that they are in doubt about a new creation?[15]


Life after death is a reality and there is nothing strange about it

We created man, We know the prompting of his soul, and We are closer to him than his jugular vein.[16] Besides this direct knowledge ,We have assigned to every one two scribes (guardian angels), the one seated on his right and the other on his left,[17] not a single word does he utter but there is a vigilant guardian ready to note it down.[18] When the agony of death will bring the truth before his eyes, they will say: “This is what you were trying to escape!”[19] And the Trumpet shall be blown; that will be the Day of which you were threatened![20] Each soul will come forth; with it there will be a an angel to drive and an angel to bear witness.[21] It will be said: “You were heedless of this, but now We have removed your veil, so your eyesight is sharp today!”[22] His companion will say: “Here is my testimony ready with me."[23] The sentence will be: “Throw into hell every stubborn disbeliever,[24] every opponent of good, and every doubting transgressor[25] who set up other gods besides Allah. Throw him into severe punishment."[26] His companion will say: “Our Rabb! I did not mislead him. He himself had gone far astray."[27] Allah will say: “Do not dispute with each other in My presence. I gave you warning beforehand.[28] My words cannot be changed, nor am I unjust to My servants."[29]


Allah has assigned two angels to each person for noting each single word that he utters

Every stubborn disbeliever will be thrown into hell

On that Day, We shall ask the hell: “Are you full?” And the hell will answer: “Are there any more?”[30] Paradise shall be brought close to the righteous, which will no more be a distant thing,[31] and it will be said: “Here is what you were promised. It is for every penitent faithful person,[32] who feared the Compassionate (Allah) without seeing Him and will come before Him with a devoted heart."[33] Allah will say: "Enter it in peace; this is the Day of Eternal Life!”[34] There they shall have all that they wish, and We shall have yet more to give.[35]


Hell shall be asked, "Are you full." Hell will answer, "Are there any more?"

How many generations, far stronger in power, have We destroyed before them! They searched the entire land: but could they find any refuge?[36] Surely in this there is a lesson for every person who has a heart, and can hear and witness.[37] We created the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them in six periods, and no fatigue touched Us.[38] Therefore, O Prophet, bear with them in patience whatever they say, and keep on glorifying your Rabb before sunrise and before sunset.[39] And glorify Him during a part of the night and after the prostration (prayers).[40] And listen! The Day when the Caller will call out from a place quite near,[41] the Day when the people will hear the mighty blast in reality; that will be the Day of coming forth (the dead will rise from their graves).[42] Surely it is We Who give life and death; and to Us shall all return,[43] on that Day when the earth shall split asunder and the people shall be rushing out of it; that gathering them together shall be quite easy for Us.[44] We know very well what these unbelievers say. You (O Muhammad) are not there to compel them to believe. So admonish with this Qur’an every such person who fears My warning.[45]


Admonish the unbelievers and bear with them in patience

Admonish them with The Qur'an

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* Life after death is a reality and there is nothing strange about it.
* Allah has assigned two angels to each person for noting down each single word that he utters.
* Every disbeliever will be thrown into hell and hell shall be asked, “Are you full.” Hell will answer, “Are there some more?”
* Admonish people with The Qur’an and bear with them in patience.

Authentic traditions show that the Prophet used to recite this Sürah generally in the Prayer on the Eid days. A woman named Umme Hisham bin Hãrithah, who was a neighbor of the Prophet, said that she was able to commit Sürah Qãf to memory only because she often heard it from the Prophet in the Friday sermons. According to some other traditions, he often recited it during Fajr Prayer. This makes it abundantly clear that this was an important Sürah in the sight of the Prophet. That is why he made sure that its contents reached as many people as possible over and over again.

The reason for its importance can be easily understood by careful study of the Sürah. The theme of the entire Sürah is the Hereafter. When the Prophet started preaching his message in Makkah, what surprised the people most was the news that people would be resurrected after death, and they would have to render an account of their deeds. In this Sürah, arguments are given for the possibility and occurrence of the hereafter in a brief way, in short sentences, and the people are warned, as if to say: “Whether you express wonder and surprise, or you regard it as something remote from reason, or deny it altogether, in any case it cannot change the truth. The absolute, unalterable truth is that Allah knows the whereabouts of each and every particle of your body that has decomposed in the earth, and knows where and in what state it is. Allah’s one signal is enough to make all the decomposed particles gather together again and to make you rise up once again as you had been created in your earthly life. Likewise, the idea that you have been created alone in the world and that you are not answerable to anyone, is no more than a misunderstanding. The fact is that not only is Allah Himself directly aware of each act and word of yours; even of the ideas that pass in your mind, but His angels also are attached to each one of you who are recording whatever you do and utter. On the Day of Judgment you will come out of your graves at one call just as the young shoots of vegetable sprout up from the earth after the first rain shower. Then, this heedlessness which obstructs your vision will be removed and you will see with your own eyes all that you are denying today. At that time, you will realize that you have not been created to be irresponsible in this world but accountable for all your deeds and you will be awarded paradise as a reward or hell as a punishment. The paradise and the hell which you regard as impossible and imaginary things will, at that time, become visible realities. In consequence of your enmity and opposition to the truth, you will be cast into the same hell which you deny today and those who fear Allah and adopt the path of righteousness, will be admitted to the same paradise at the mention of which you express wonder and surprise.
