The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
The Hour has come near, and the moon has split [in two]. (1) Yet if they see a sign (the unbelievers) turn their backs and say: 'This is but a continuation of sorcery' (2) They have cried lies, and followed their caprices; but every matter is settled. (3) And there has already come to them of information that in which there is deterrence - (4) profound in wisdom, but all warnings have been of no avail: (5) So leave them, [O Muhammad]. The Day the Caller calls to something forbidding, (6) They will come out of the graves with downcast eyes like an expanding swarm of locusts. (7) running in confusion towards the Summoning Voice; [and] those who [now] deny the truth will exclaim, "Calamitous is this Day!" (8) ۞ Before them the People of Noah rejected (their messenger): they rejected Our servant, and said, "Here is one possessed!", and he was driven out. (9) Noah prayed, "Lord, help me; I am defeated". (10) Thereupon We opened the gates of the sky for water to pour down, (11) and made the earth to gush with fountains, and the waters met for a matter decreed. (12) And We bare him on a thing of planks and nails. (13) Which sailed right under Our eyes: A recompense for him who had been denied. (14) And We left it as a sign, so is there any who will remember? (15) And how [severe] were My punishment and warning. (16) And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember? (17) Ad cried lies. How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (18) Behold, We let loose upon them a raging storm wind on a day of bitter misfortune: (19) Which snatched away men as though they were palm trees pulled out by the roots. (20) And how [severe] were My punishment and warning. (21) Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will pay heed? (22)
