The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
THE HOUR HAS come and split is the moon. (1) But if they see a sign they turn away, and say: "This is the same old lie continuing," (2) And they denied and followed their inclinations. But for every matter is a [time of] settlement. (3) And assuredly there hath come unto them tidings wherein is a deterrent. (4) but the warnings have proved to have no effect on them. (5) Therefore, turn away from them. On the Day when the Caller summons them to a terrible thing, (6) Their eyes cast down, going forth from their graves as if they were scattered locusts, (7) running in confusion towards the Summoning Voice; [and] those who [now] deny the truth will exclaim, "Calamitous is this Day!" (8) ۞ Before these, the people of Nooh denied and they belied Our bondman and said, “He is a madman” and rebuffed him. (9) Then he supplicated to his Lord, (saying): 'I am overcome, help me' (10) Then We opened the gates of heaven unto water torrential, (11) And We made the earth break forth with springs; so that the water met for an affair already decreed. (12) But We bore him on a (vessel made) of planks and oakum, (13) which floated on the water before Our very eyes. The flood was a recompense for the deeds of the disbelievers. (14) And We left the Ark as a Sign. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (15) Then see how (dreadful) was My punishment after My warnings! (16) And We have indeed made the Qur’an easy to memorise, so is there one who would remember? (17) The people of 'Ad too rejected the truth. How terrible was My punishment and My warning. (18) We sent a tumultuous wind against them on a day of unremitting misfortune, (19) Plucking out men as if they were roots of palm-trees torn up (from the ground). (20) How [dreadful] was My punishment and My warning! (21) And certainly We have made the Quran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will mind? (22)
