The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
THE HOUR HAS come and split is the moon. (1) But if they [who reject all thought of the Last Hour] were to see a sign [of its approach,] they would turn aside and say: "An ever-recurring delusion!" (2) They have belied, and follow their own fancies. But, every issue will be settled! (3) And surely there hath come unto them news whereof the purport should deter, (4) Effective wisdom; but warnings avail not. (5) So withdraw from them (O Muhammad) on the day when the Summoner summoneth unto a painful thing. (6) they will come forth from their graves, with their eyes downcast, [swarming about] like locusts scattered [by the wind,] (7) Hastening toward the summoner. The infidels will say: this is a day diffrcult. (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 made water to flow forth in the land in springs, so the water gathered together according to a measure already ordained. (12) And We bore Noah on the vessel built of planks and nails, (13) Sailing under Our observation as reward for he who had been denied. (14) And We left it as a sign. Is there anyone who will be warned? (15) How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (16) Now We have made the Koran easy for Remembrance. Is there any that will remember? (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) Lo! We let loose on them a raging wind on a day of constant calamity, (19) it swept the people away as though they were palm-trunks uprooted: (20) How [dreadful] was My punishment and My warning! (21) And certainly We have made the Quran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will mind? (22)
