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 drew nigh and the moon was rent in twain. (1) And if they see a sign, they turn away, and say: "This is continuous magic." (2) They deny the truth and follow their own whims, every matter has its appointed time, (3) And assuredly there hath come unto them tidings wherein is a deterrent. (4) Consummate wisdom-- but warnings do not avail; (5) Therefore turn away from them; on the day when the announcer will call towards a severe unknown matter (6) They will come forth, with humbled eyes from (their) graves as if they were locusts spread abroad, (7) Rushing towards the caller; the disbelievers will say, “This is a tough day.” (8) ۞ Before them Noah's people also gave the lie (to his Message). They rejected Our servant as a liar, saying: “He is a madman”; and he was rebuffed. (9) Therefore he called upon his Lord: I am overcome, come Thou then to help. (10) We opened the gates of the sky and water started to pour down. (11) We caused the earth to burst forth with springs so that the waters could come together for a predestined purpose. (12) But We bore him on a (vessel made) of planks and oakum, (13) that ran on under Our Eyes, a recompense for him because he had been disbelieved. (14) And indeed, We have caused such [floating vessels] to remain forever a sign [of Our grace unto man]: who, then, is willing to take it to heart? (15) So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! (16) We have made the Quran easy to understand, but is there anyone who would pay attention? (17) The people of `Ad rejected Our guidance. How terrible was My torment and the result (of their disregard) of My warning. (18) Verily, We sent against them a furious wind of harsh voice on a day of evil omen and continuous calamity. (19) Tearing men away as if they were the trunks of palm-trees torn up. (20) So how did My punishment turn out, and My warnings? (21) And in truth We have made the Qur'an easy to remember; but is there any that remembereth? (22)
