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 Hour of Resurrection drew near and the moon split asunder. (1) But if they see a sign they turn away, and say: "This is the same old lie continuing," (2) They denied (the Truth) and followed their own lusts. Yet everything will come to a decision (3) They have certainly received the kind of news in which there is a lesson and strong words of wisdom, (4) Consummate wisdom-- but warnings do not avail; (5) Therefore turn away from them; on the day when the announcer will call towards a severe unknown matter (6) they will come out of their graves, their eyes cast down, hastening towards their Summoner as locusts rushing about. (7) They shall be hurrying forth towards the caller, and the unbelievers (who had once denied this Day), will say: “This is a woeful Day.” (8) ۞ Before these, the people of Nooh denied and they belied Our bondman and said, “He is a madman” and rebuffed him. (9) And so he called unto his Lord, saying, 'I am vanquished; do Thou succour me!' (10) We opened the Gates of Heaven with torrential water (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 upon a thing of planks and nails, (13) floated on under Our eyes: a vindication of him who had been rejected. (14) We have left it as a sign. Is there any that will remember? (15) How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (16) And We have indeed made the Quran easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)? (17) And there belied the A'ad; so how dreadful have been My torment and warning! (18) And We sent against them a howling wind in a Day of continuous of ill fortune (19) Tearing men away as if they were the trunks of palm-trees torn up. (20) And how [severe] were My punishment and warning. (21) Hence, indeed, We made this Qur'an easy to bear in mind: who, then, is willing to take it to heart? (22)
