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 has come near, and the moon has split [in two]. (1) And if they see a miracle, they turn away and say, "Passing 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) Tidings containing a deterrent have come to them (4) The pinnacle of wisdom so how will the Heralds of warning provide any benefit? (5) So leave them, [O Muhammad]. The Day the Caller calls to something forbidding, (6) With downcast eyes, they come forth from the graves as they were locusts spread abroad, (7) Hastening towards the caller, the disbelievers will say: "This is a hard Day." (8) ۞ There belied before them the people of Nuh. So they belied Our bondman and said: a madman; and moreover he was reproven. (9) So he cried unto his Lord, saying: I am vanquished, so give help. (10) Then opened We the gates of heaven with pouring water (11) And We caused the earth to gush forth with springs. So the waters (of the heaven and the earth) met for a matter predestined. (12) We carried him, (Noah), on a vessel built with boards fixed together with nails, (13) which sailed on under Our supervision: a reward for him who had been shown ingratitude. (14) And We left it as a sign, so is there any who will remember? (15) How then were My punishment and My warnings! (16) We have made it easy to learn lessons from the Quran. Is there anyone who would receive admonition? (17) The 'Ad (people) (too) rejected (Truth): then how terrible was My Penalty and My Warning? (18) We sent a raging wind against them on a day of continuous calamity. (19) Tearing men away as if they were the trunks of palm-trees torn up. (20) Yea, how (terrible) was My Penalty and My Warning! (21) And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember? (22)
