The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
The Hour is drawing near, and the moon is split (in two). (1) And if they behold a portent they turn away and say: Prolonged illusion. (2) And they denied and followed their inclinations. But for every matter is a [time of] settlement. (3) Messages deterring them from evil had come to them, (4) far-reaching wisdom [was held out to them]: but [since] all warnings have been of no avail, (5) Therefore, turn away from them. On the Day when the Caller summons them to a terrible thing, (6) they will come forth from their graves, with their eyes downcast, [swarming about] like locusts scattered [by the wind,] (7) They will hasten forward to the caller, gazes fixed. And the unbelievers will say: "This is the day of untold woe." (8) ۞ The people of Noah denied before them, and they denied Our servant and said, "A madman," and he was repelled. (9) so he cried out to his Lord, saying, "I am overcome, so help me!" (10) We opened the gates of the sky and water started to pour down. (11) and caused the earth to gush with springs, so that the waters met for a predestined matter. (12) And We bare him on a thing of planks and nails. (13) which floated on the water before Our very eyes. The flood was a recompense for the deeds of the disbelievers. (14) We have left this as a sign: but will anyone take heed? (15) How was then My punishment and My commination! (16) And in truth We have made the Qur'an easy to remember; but is there any that remembereth? (17) The tribe of A’ad denied so how did My punishment turn out, and My warnings? (18) Behold, We let loose upon them a raging storm wind on a day of bitter misfortune: (19) Extracting the people as if they were trunks of palm trees uprooted. (20) How terrible was Our torment and the result of (their disregard) of Our warning. (21) And We have indeed made the Qur’an easy to memorise, so is there one who would remember? (22)
