The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
The Hour has come near, and the moon has split [in two]. (1) And if they behold a portent they turn away and say: Prolonged illusion. (2) And they denied and followed their own desires, whereas each matter has been decided! (3) And indeed the news which had a lot of deterrence, came to them. (4) Extensive wisdom - but warning does not avail [them]. (5) So turn (your) back on them (for) the day when the inviter shall invite them to a hard task, (6) They will come out of the graves with downcast eyes like an expanding swarm of locusts. (7) Rushing towards the caller; the disbelievers will say, “This is a tough day.” (8) ۞ Before them the people of Nuh rejected, so they rejected Our servant and called (him) mad, and he was driven away. (9) So he invoked his Lord, "Indeed, I am overpowered, so help." (10) We therefore opened the gates of heaven, with water flowing furiously. (11) And caused the earth to gush forth springs, so that the waters met for a predestined purpose. (12) And We carried him on a [construction of] planks and nails, (13) which floated on the water before Our very eyes. The flood was a recompense for the deeds of the disbelievers. (14) And assuredly We left it for a sign. Is there then anyone who would be admonished? (15) How terrible then was My punishment and My warning. (16) We have made the Quran easy to understand, but is there anyone who would pay attention? (17) Ad cried lies. How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (18) We sent a raging wind against them on a day of continuous calamity. (19) which hurled people around like uprooted trunks of palm-trees. (20) How (great) was then My punishment and My warning! (21) Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will pay heed? (22)
