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 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 have rejected it and have followed their own desires, but all matters will be settled (by God). (3) And indeed there has come to them news (in this Quran) wherein there is (enough warning) to check (them from evil), (4) profound in wisdom, but all warnings have been of no avail: (5) turn thou away from them. On the Day when the Summoning Voice will summon [man] unto something that the mind cannot conceive, (6) With looks downcast they will come forth, from the tombs, as though they were locusts scattered abroad. (7) These disbelievers will say, "This is a hard day". (8) ۞ Before them Noah's people also gave the lie (to his Message). They rejected Our servant as a liar, saying: “He is a madman”; and he was rebuffed. (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 caused the earth to gush with springs, so that the waters met for a predestined matter. (12) but him We bore on that [vessel] made of [mere] planks and nails, (13) and it floated under Our eyes: a recompense for him who had been rejected with ingratitude. (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) And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition? (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) Verily, We sent against them a furious wind of harsh voice on a day of evil omen and continuous calamity. (19) Plucking out men as if they were uprooted stems of date-palms. (20) Yea, how (terrible) was My Penalty and My Warning! (21) And certainly We have made the Quran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will mind? (22)
