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 of Resurrection drew near and the moon split asunder. (1) And if they see a miracle they turn aside and say: Transient magic. (2) for they are bent on giving it the lie, being always wont to follow their own desires. Yet everything reveals its truth in the end. (3) Messages deterring them from evil had come to them, (4) Effective wisdom; but warnings avail not. (5) So (O Muhammad SAW) withdraw from them. The Day that the caller will call (them) to a terrible thing. (6) They will come out of the graves with downcast eyes like an expanding swarm of locusts. (7) Racing ahead toward the Caller. The disbelievers will say, "This is a difficult Day." (8) ۞ The people of Noah, who lived before them, had also rejected (Our guidance). They rejected Our servant and said, "He is an insane person so let us drive him away". (9) Therefore he called upon his Lord: I am overcome, come Thou then to help. (10) Then We opened the gates of the heaven with rain pouring down (11) And We made the earth break forth with springs; so that the water met for an affair already decreed. (12) And We bore Noah on the vessel built of planks and nails, (13) which floated on the water before Our very eyes. The flood was a recompense for the deeds of the disbelievers. (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) So how did My punishment turn out, and My threats? (16) And We have indeed made the Quran easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)? (17) The people of `Ad rejected Our guidance. How terrible was My torment and the result (of their disregard) of My warning. (18) And We sent against them a howling wind in a Day of continuous of ill fortune (19) it swept the people away as though they were palm-trunks uprooted: (20) How was then My punishment and My commination! (21) And certainly We have made the Quran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will mind? (22)
