The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
The Hour is drawing near, and the moon is split (in two). (1) Yet if they see a sign they turn away, and they say 'A continuous sorcery!' (2) They have belied, and follow their own fancies. But, every issue will be settled! (3) Surely there came to them narratives (of the ancient nations) that should suffice to deter (them from transgression), (4) Containing consummate wisdom; yet warnings were of no avail. (5) So leave them, [O Muhammad]. The Day the Caller calls to something forbidding, (6) Their eyes cast down, going forth from their graves as if they were scattered locusts, (7) Hastening toward the summoner; the disbelievers say: This is a hard day. (8) ۞ The people of Noah had denied before them, and had called Our votary a liar, and said: "He is possessed," and repulsed him. (9) Thereupon he called out to his Sustainer, "Verily, I am defeated; come Thou, then, to my succour!" (10) So We opened the gates of the sky with water pouring down in torrents, (11) And We made water to flow forth in the land in springs, so the water gathered together according to a measure already ordained. (12) But We bore him on a (vessel made) of planks and oakum, (13) Sailing in front of Our sight; as a reward for the sake of one who was rejected. (14) And We left the Ark as a Sign. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (15) How (great) was then My punishment and My warning! (16) And We have indeed made the Qur’an easy to memorise, so is there one who would remember? (17) And there belied the A'ad; so how dreadful have been My torment and warning! (18) We let loose against them a violent roaring wind on a day of ill omen, continuous, (19) plucking up men as if they were stumps of uprooted palm-trees. (20) How was then My punishment and My commination! (21) We have made the Qur'an easy to derive lessons from. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (22)
