The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
THE HOUR HAS come and split is the moon. (1) But if they [who reject all thought of the Last Hour] were to see a sign [of its approach,] they would turn aside and say: "An ever-recurring delusion!" (2) for they are bent on giving it the lie, being always wont to follow their own desires. Yet everything reveals its truth in the end. (3) Tidings containing a deterrent have come to them (4) Wisdom consummate. But warnings avail not. (5) Wherefore withdrew thou from them. The Day whereon the summoner will summon mankind unto a thing unpleasant. (6) abasing their eyes, they shall come forth from the tombs as if they were scattered grasshoppers, (7) running (with their necks extended) to the Caller. The unbelievers will say: 'This is indeed a harsh Day' (8) ۞ The people of Noah cried lies before them; they cried lies to Our servant, and said, 'A man possessed!' And he was rejected. (9) Then he supplicated to his Lord, (saying): 'I am overcome, help me' (10) And We opened up the flood gates of the sky with water pouring down in torrents, (11) And caused the earth to burst with springs, and the waters met for a matter already predestined. (12) And We carried him on a [construction of] planks and nails, (13) Sailing in front of Our sight; as a reward for the sake of one who was rejected. (14) And We left it as a sign. Is there anyone who will be warned? (15) But how (terrible) was My Penalty and My Warning? (16) We have made it easy to learn lessons from the Quran. Is there anyone who would receive admonition? (17) The 'Ad had also disavowed. How was then My punishment and My commination! (18) We indeed sent towards them a severe windstorm, on a day the ill luck of which lasted upon them forever. (19) Plucking out men as if they were uprooted stems of date-palms. (20) How terrible was Our torment and the result of (their disregard) of Our warning. (21) And assuredly We have made the Qur'an easy for admonition; is there then any one who would be admonished! (22)
