The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
The Hour (of Judgment) is nigh, and the moon is cleft asunder. (1) And if they see a miracle they turn aside and say: Transient magic. (2) And they belied, and they followed their lusts; and every affair cometh to a final goal. (3) They have certainly received the kind of news in which there is a lesson and strong words of wisdom, (4) Wisdom consummate. But warnings avail not. (5) So turn thou away from them. Upon the day when the Caller shall call unto a horrible thing, (6) Their eyes humbled, they will emerge from the graves as if they were locusts spreading, (7) hastening towards the Crier. Those who deny the truth will cry, "This is such a hard day!" (8) ۞ Before these, the people of Nooh denied and they belied Our bondman and said, “He is a madman” and rebuffed him. (9) Thereupon he called out to his Sustainer, "Verily, I am defeated; come Thou, then, to my succour!" (10) So We opened the gates of heaven, with water pouring forth. (11) And We made the earth break forth with springs; so that the water met for an affair already decreed. (12) And We bore him upon a well-planked vessel well-caulked (13) running before Our eyes-a recompense for him denied. (14) And We left it as a sign, so is there any who will remember? (15) And how [severe] were My punishment and warning. (16) And We have indeed made the Quran easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)? (17) 'Ad (people) belied (their Prophet, Hud), then how (terrible) was My Torment and My Warnings? (18) For We sent against them a furious wind, on a Day of violent Disaster, (19) Which snatched away men as though they were palm trees pulled out by the roots. (20) How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (21) Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will pay heed? (22)
