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) Yet if they see a sign they turn away, and they say 'A continuous sorcery!' (2) They reject (the warning) and follow their (own) lusts but every matter has its appointed time. (3) They have certainly received the kind of news in which there is a lesson and strong words of wisdom, (4) which are full of wisdom; but the warnings do not help. (5) Therefore, (O Prophet,) turn away from them. The Day that the Caller will call (them) to a terrible affair, (6) with down-cast eyes they shall go forth from their graves, as though they were scattered locusts. (7) Rushing towards the caller; the disbelievers will say, “This is a tough day.” (8) ۞ There belied before them the people of Nuh. So they belied Our bondman and said: a madman; and moreover he was reproven. (9) So he cried unto his Lord, saying: I am vanquished, so give help. (10) So We opened the gates of the cloud with water pouring (11) And We caused the earth to gush forth with springs. So the waters (of the heaven and the earth) met for a matter predestined. (12) We carried him in a well built, watertight vessel made from planks (of wood) (13) floated on under Our eyes: a vindication of him who had been rejected. (14) And We left it as a sign so is there one who would ponder? (15) How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (16) And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition? (17) The 'Ad had also disavowed. How was then My punishment and My commination! (18) On an unfortunate day We sent upon them a continuous violent wind (19) Plucking out men as if they were roots of palm-trees torn up (from the ground). (20) How was then My punishment and My commination! (21) And in truth We have made the Qur'an easy to remember; but is there any that remembereth? (22)
