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) 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) And there have come to them such tidings as contain a deterrent -- (4) Mature wisdom;- but (the preaching of) Warners profits them not. (5) so ignore them. On the Day when the Crier will call out about a horrible event, (6) they will come forth from their graves, with their eyes downcast, [swarming about] like locusts scattered [by the wind,] (7) running (with their necks extended) to the Caller. The unbelievers will say: 'This is indeed a harsh Day' (8) ۞ The folk of Noah denied before them, yea, they denied Our slave and said: A madman; and he was repulsed. (9) And so he called unto his Lord, saying, 'I am vanquished; do Thou succour me!' (10) So We opened the gates of the sky with water pouring down in torrents, (11) And We made the earth break forth with springs; so that the water met for an affair already decreed. (12) And We bore him on that which was made of planks and nails (13) that ran on under Our Eyes, a recompense for him because he had been disbelieved. (14) We have left it as a sign. Is there any that will remember? (15) How was then My punishment and My commination! (16) And certainly We have made the Quran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will mind? (17) 'Ad (people) belied (their Prophet, Hud), then how (terrible) was My Torment and My Warnings? (18) We loosed against them a wind clamorous in a day of ill fortune continuous, (19) which hurled people around like uprooted trunks of palm-trees. (20) And how [severe] were My punishment and warning. (21) And certainly We have made the Quran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will mind? (22)
