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 hath drawn nigh, and the moon hath been rent in sunder. (1) And if they see a miracle they turn aside and say: Transient magic. (2) They deny the truth and follow their own whims, every matter has its appointed time, (3) And there has already come to them of information that in which there is deterrence - (4) far-reaching wisdom [was held out to them]: but [since] all warnings have been of no avail, (5) Therefore, (O Prophet,) turn away from them. The Day that the Caller will call (them) to a terrible affair, (6) With downcast eyes, they come forth from the graves as they were locusts spread abroad, (7) Hastening towards the caller, the disbelievers will say: "This is a hard Day." (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) Then he supplicated to his Lord, (saying): 'I am overcome, help me' (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 met (and rose) to the extent decreed. (12) And We carried him on a (ship) made of planks and nails, (13) Which sailed right under Our eyes: A recompense for him who had been denied. (14) And assuredly We left it for a sign. Is there then anyone who would be admonished? (15) How then were My punishment and My warnings! (16) We have made this Qur'an easy as a reminder. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (17) TO THE TRUTH gave the lie [the tribe of] Ad: and how severe was the suffering which I inflicted when My warnings were disregarded! (18) Indeed, We sent upon them a screaming wind on a day of continuous misfortune, (19) Sweeping men away as though they were uprooted trunks of palm-trees. (20) So how dreadful have been My torment and My warning. (21) Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will pay heed? (22)
