Sūrat Qaf (Arabic: سورة ق‎, "The Letter Qāf") is the 50th sura of the Qur'an with 45 ayat. The surah that opens with the single discrete Arabic letter QĀF. It deals predominantly with the Resurrection and the Day of Judgement. Reference is made to previous generations of disbelievers,[1] both to warn the disbelievers in Mecca and to reassure the Prophet. Creation is cited as an indication of God’s ability to bring the dead to life again,[2] and emphasis is placed on the powerlessness of man on the Day of Resurrection.[3] The surah both opens and closes with mention of the Quran.
