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 has drawn nigh: the moon is split. (1) And if they see a sign, they turn away, and say: "This is continuous magic." (2) They also gave the lie to (the splitting asunder of the moon) and only followed their desires. Yet everything is destined to reach an end. (3) Surely there came to them narratives (of the ancient nations) that should suffice to deter (them from transgression), (4) narratives that are full of consummate wisdom. But warnings do not avail them. (5) So withdraw from them (O Muhammad) on the day when the Summoner summoneth unto a painful thing. (6) with down-cast eyes they shall go forth from their graves, as though they were scattered locusts. (7) Hastening, with eyes transfixed, towards the Caller!- "Hard is this Day!", the Unbelievers will say. (8) ۞ There belied before them the people of Nuh. So they belied Our bondman and said: a madman; and moreover he was reproven. (9) Then he supplicated to his Lord, (saying): 'I am overcome, help me' (10) Then We opened the portals of heaven with water poured out. (11) And caused springs to gush out from the earth, so that the two waters met totalling a quantity that had been destined. (12) And We carried him on a (ship) made of planks and nails, (13) She floats under our eyes (and care): a recompense to one who had been rejected (with scorn)! (14) We made (the story of Noah) as evidence of the Truth. However, is there anyone who would take heed? (15) So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! (16) And in truth We have made the Qur'an easy to remember; but is there any that remembereth? (17) The people of `Ad rejected Our guidance. How terrible was My torment and the result (of their disregard) of My warning. (18) We let loose against them a violent roaring wind on a day of ill omen, continuous, (19) Extracting the people as if they were trunks of palm trees uprooted. (20) Then see how (dreadful) was My punishment after My warnings! (21) We have made the Quran easy to understand, but is there anyone who would pay attention? (22)
