The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
The Last Hour draws near and the moon is split asunder. (1) Yet if they see a sign they turn away, and they say 'A continuous sorcery!' (2) They have cried lies, and followed their caprices; but every matter is settled. (3) And indeed there has come to them news (in this Quran) wherein there is (enough warning) to check (them from evil), (4) Consummate wisdom-- but warnings do not avail; (5) so ignore them. On the Day when the Crier will call out about a horrible event, (6) They will come forth,- their eyes humbled - from (their) graves, (torpid) like locusts scattered abroad, (7) Hastening, with eyes transfixed, towards the Caller!- "Hard is this Day!", the Unbelievers will say. (8) ۞ [LONG] BEFORE those [who now deny resurrection] did Noah's people call it a lie; and they gave the lie to Our servant and said, "Mad is he!" - and he was repulsed. (9) Noah prayed, "Lord, help me; I am defeated". (10) Then opened We the gates of heaven with pouring water (11) and caused the earth to burst forth with springs, so that the waters met for a purpose pre-ordained: (12) And We bore him on that which was made of planks and nails (13) Moving forward under Our eyes: a requital for him who had been rejected. (14) We made (the story of Noah) as evidence of the Truth. However, is there anyone who would take heed? (15) So how did My punishment turn out, and My threats? (16) Hence, indeed, We made this Qur'an easy to bear in mind: who, then, is willing to take it to heart? (17) Ad treated (the truth) as a lie, so how (great) was My punishment and My warning! (18) And We sent against them a howling wind in a Day of continuous of ill fortune (19) It swept people away as if they were trunks of uprooted palm trees. (20) How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (21) Hence, indeed, We made this Qur'an easy to bear in mind: who, then, is willing to take it to heart? (22)
