The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
THE LAST HOUR draws near, and the moon is split asunder! (1) And if they see a miracle, they turn away and say, "Passing magic." (2) for they are bent on giving it the lie, being always wont to follow their own desires. Yet everything reveals its truth in the end. (3) there has come to them many a tiding wherein there are warnings, (4) which are full of wisdom; but the warnings do not help. (5) So turn thou away from them. Upon the day when the Caller shall call unto a horrible thing, (6) They will come forth, with humbled eyes from (their) graves as if they were locusts spread abroad, (7) These disbelievers will say, "This is a hard day". (8) ۞ [LONG] BEFORE those [who now deny resurrection] did Noah's people call it a lie; and they gave the lie to Our servant and said, "Mad is he!" - and he was repulsed. (9) So he invoked his Lord, "Indeed, I am overpowered, so help." (10) So We opened the gates of the cloud with water pouring (11) and We made the earth burst forth with springs, and all this water converged to fulfil that which had been decreed. (12) And We bore Noah on the vessel built of planks and nails, (13) and it floated under Our eyes: a recompense for him who had been rejected with ingratitude. (14) And assuredly We left it for a sign. Is there then anyone who would be admonished? (15) And how severe is the suffering which I inflict when My warnings are disregarded! (16) Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will be warned? (17) Ad treated (the truth) as a lie, so how (great) was My punishment and My warning! (18) Verily, We sent against them a furious wind of harsh voice on a day of evil omen and continuous calamity. (19) Which snatched away men as though they were palm trees pulled out by the roots. (20) So how dreadful have been My torment and My warning. (21) Now We have made the Koran easy for Remembrance. Is there any that will remember? (22)
