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 Last Hour draws near and the moon is split asunder. (1) But if they see a Sign, they turn away, and say, "This is (but) transient magic." (2) They also gave the lie to (the splitting asunder of the moon) and only followed their desires. Yet everything is destined to reach an end. (3) And assuredly there hath come unto them tidings wherein is a deterrent. (4) which are full of wisdom; but the warnings do not help. (5) So withdraw from them (O Muhammad) on the day when the Summoner summoneth unto a painful thing. (6) Their eyes cast down, going forth from their graves as if they were scattered locusts, (7) Hastening toward the summoner. The infidels will say: this is a day diffrcult. (8) ۞ The people of Noah denied [the truth] before them. They belied Our messenger saying, "He is mad!" He was rebuffed, (9) Therefore he called upon his Lord: I am overcome, come Thou then to help. (10) We opened the gates of the sky and water started to pour down. (11) and We caused the earth to burst with gushing springs: so that the waters met for a purpose which had been decreed. (12) We carried him, (Noah), on a vessel built with boards fixed together with nails, (13) She floats under our eyes (and care): a recompense to one who had been rejected (with scorn)! (14) And indeed, We have left this as a sign, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)? (15) So how did My punishment turn out, and My threats? (16) We have made this Qur'an easy as a reminder. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (17) The 'Ad had also disavowed. How was then My punishment and My commination! (18) Behold, We let loose upon them a raging storm wind on a day of bitter misfortune: (19) which tore people away and hurled them as though they were trunks of uprooted palm-trees. (20) Then, how (terrible) was My Torment and My Warnings? (21) We have made the Qur'an easy to derive lessons from. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (22)
