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 Last Day came near, and the moon split apart. (1) Whenever they see a miracle, they turn away from it and say, "This is just a powerful magic". (2) They also gave the lie to (the splitting asunder of the moon) and only followed their desires. Yet everything is destined to reach an end. (3) Messages deterring them from evil had come to them, (4) Mature wisdom;- but (the preaching of) Warners profits them not. (5) So turn away from them. When on the Day the crier calls to the painful business, (6) they will come forth from their graves, with their eyes downcast, [swarming about] like locusts scattered [by the wind,] (7) running with outstretched necks to the Caller. The unbelievers shall say, 'This is a hard 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) Then he invoked his Lord (saying): "I have been overcome, so help (me)!" (10) Thereupon We opened the gates of the sky for water to pour down, (11) And caused springs to gush out from the earth, so that the two waters met totalling a quantity that had been destined. (12) We carried him, (Noah), on a vessel built with boards fixed together with nails, (13) which sailed on under Our supervision: a reward for him who had been shown ingratitude. (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) And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember? (17) Ad treated (the truth) as a lie, so how (great) was My punishment and My warning! (18) We loosed against them a wind clamorous in a day of ill fortune continuous, (19) plucking up men as if they were stumps of uprooted palm-trees. (20) How (great) was then My punishment and My warning! (21) And in truth We have made the Qur'an easy to remember; but is there any that remembereth? (22)
