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 Most Merciful
THE HOUR HAS come and split is the moon. (1) And if they see a miracle they turn aside and say: Transient magic. (2) And they denied and followed their own desires, whereas each matter has been decided! (3) And surely there hath come unto them news whereof the purport should deter, (4) far-reaching wisdom [was held out to them]: but [since] 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 their graves, their eyes cast down, hastening towards their Summoner as locusts rushing about. (7) They will hasten forward to the caller, gazes fixed. And the unbelievers will say: "This is the day of untold woe." (8) ۞ The people of Noah cried lies before them; they cried lies to Our servant, and said, 'A man possessed!' And he was rejected. (9) Thereupon he called out to his Sustainer, "Verily, I am defeated; come Thou, then, to my succour!" (10) We opened the Gates of Heaven with torrential water (11) And We caused the earth to gush forth with springs, so the waters met (and rose) to the extent decreed. (12) But We bore him on an (Ark) made of broad planks and caulked with palm-fibre: (13) Sailing in front of Our sight; as a reward for the sake of one who was rejected. (14) And indeed, We have caused such [floating vessels] to remain forever a sign [of Our grace unto man]: who, then, is willing to take it to heart? (15) How (great) was then My punishment and My warning! (16) And in truth We have made the Qur'an easy to remember; but is there any that remembereth? (17) TO THE TRUTH gave the lie [the tribe of] Ad: and how severe was the suffering which I inflicted when My warnings were disregarded! (18) We indeed sent towards them a severe windstorm, on a day the ill luck of which lasted upon them forever. (19) it swept the people away as though they were palm-trunks uprooted: (20) How then were My punishment and My warnings! (21) We have made it easy to learn lessons from the Quran: is there anyone who would receive admonition? (22)
