The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
The Hour of Doom is drawing near and the moon is rent asunder. (1) And if they see a miracle they turn aside and say: Transient magic. (2) And they denied and followed their inclinations. But for every matter is a [time of] settlement. (3) Tidings containing a deterrent have come to them (4) Extensive wisdom - but warning does not avail [them]. (5) So (O Muhammad SAW) withdraw from them. The Day that the caller will call (them) to a terrible thing. (6) With downcast eyes, they come forth from the graves as they were locusts spread abroad, (7) Hastening to the inviter. The unbelievers shall say: This is a hard day. (8) ۞ The folk of Noah denied before them, yea, they denied Our slave and said: A madman; and he was repulsed. (9) So he cried unto his Lord, saying: I am vanquished, so give help. (10) So We opened the gates of the sky with water pouring down in torrents, (11) and made the earth to gush with fountains, and the waters met for a matter decreed. (12) but him We bore on that [vessel] made of [mere] planks and nails, (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) So how did My punishment turn out, and My threats? (16) Hence, indeed, We made this Qur'an easy to bear in mind: who, then, is willing to take it to heart? (17) The 'Ad (people) (too) rejected (Truth): then how terrible was My Penalty and My Warning? (18) Behold, We let loose upon them a raging storm wind on a day of bitter misfortune: (19) Smashing down men as if they were uprooted trunks of date palms. (20) So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! (21) And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember? (22)
