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 LAST HOUR draws near, and the moon is split asunder! (1) Whenever they see a miracle, they turn away from it and say, "This is just a powerful magic". (2) They have rejected it and have followed their own desires, but all matters will be settled (by God). (3) And there have come to them such tidings as contain a deterrent -- (4) Consummate wisdom-- but warnings do not avail; (5) So leave them, [O Muhammad]. The Day the Caller calls to something forbidding, (6) with down-cast eyes they shall go forth from their graves, as though they were scattered locusts. (7) running in confusion towards the Summoning Voice; [and] those who [now] deny the truth will exclaim, "Calamitous is this Day!" (8) ۞ (Long) before them the nation of Noah belied. They belied Our worshiper saying: 'Mad' and he was reprimanded. (9) Then he called upon His Lord: “Verily I am vanquished; so come You to my aid.” (10) So We opened the gates of heaven, with water pouring forth. (11) And We opened up the springs of the earth; and the waters met for a decreed end. (12) And We bore Noah on the vessel built of planks and nails, (13) floated on under Our eyes: a vindication of him who had been rejected. (14) And We have left this as a Sign (for all time): then is there any that will receive admonition? (15) And how [severe] were My punishment and warning. (16) We have made this Qur'an easy as a reminder. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (17) 'Ad also gave the lie (to Hud). So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! (18) We let loose against them a violent roaring wind on a day of ill omen, continuous, (19) Smashing down men as if they were uprooted trunks of date palms. (20) How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (21) Hence, indeed, We made this Qur'an easy to bear in mind: who, then, is willing to take it to heart? (22)
