The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
The Hour is drawing near, and the moon is split (in two). (1) Whenever they see a miracle, they turn away from it and say, "This is just a powerful magic". (2) And they call (it) a lie, and follow their low desires; and every affair has its appointed term. (3) Surely there came to them narratives (of the ancient nations) that should suffice to deter (them from transgression), (4) far-reaching wisdom [was held out to them]: but [since] all warnings have been of no avail, (5) So turn (your) back on them (for) the day when the inviter shall invite them to a hard task, (6) they will come forth from their graves, with their eyes downcast, [swarming about] like locusts scattered [by the wind,] (7) running with outstretched necks to the Caller. The unbelievers shall say, 'This is a hard day!' (8) ۞ The people of Noah denied [the truth] before them. They belied Our messenger saying, "He is mad!" He was rebuffed, (9) So he invoked his Lord, "Indeed, I am overpowered, so help." (10) We therefore opened the gates of heaven, with water flowing furiously. (11) And We caused the earth to gush forth with springs, so the waters met (and rose) to the extent decreed. (12) We carried him, (Noah), on a vessel built with boards fixed together with nails, (13) Floating under Our Eyes, a reward for him who had been rejected! (14) And We left the Ark as a Sign. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (15) How was then My punishment and My commination! (16) Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will be warned? (17) 'Ad also gave the lie (to Hud). So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! (18) Surely We sent on them a tornado in a day of bitter ill-luck (19) Plucking out men as if they were uprooted stems of date-palms. (20) for, how severe is the suffering which I inflict when My warnings are disregarded! (21) And We have indeed made the Quran easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)? (22)
