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 of Resurrection drew near and the moon split asunder. (1) Whenever they see a miracle, they turn away from it and say, "This is just a powerful magic". (2) And they belied, and they followed their lusts; and every affair cometh to a final goal. (3) Surely there came to them narratives (of the ancient nations) that should suffice to deter (them from transgression), (4) Mature wisdom;- but (the preaching of) Warners profits them not. (5) So withdraw from them (O Muhammad) on the day when the Summoner summoneth unto a painful thing. (6) They will come out of the graves with downcast eyes like an expanding swarm of locusts. (7) Hastening, with eyes transfixed, towards the Caller!- "Hard is this Day!", the Unbelievers will say. (8) ۞ The people of Noah cried lies before them; they cried lies to Our servant, and said, 'A man possessed!' And he was rejected. (9) Thereupon he called out to his Sustainer, "Verily, I am defeated; come Thou, then, to my succour!" (10) Then opened We the gates of heaven with pouring water (11) and We made the earth burst forth with springs, and all this water converged to fulfil that which had been decreed. (12) We carried him in a well built, watertight vessel made from planks (of wood) (13) Sailing under Our observation as reward for he who had been denied. (14) And indeed, We have left this as a sign, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)? (15) How terrible then was My punishment and My warning. (16) We have made the Koran easy to remember, is there any that will remember! (17) Ad treated (the truth) as a lie, so how (great) was My punishment and My warning! (18) Indeed, We sent upon them a screaming wind on a day of continuous misfortune, (19) it swept the people away as though they were palm-trunks uprooted: (20) How was then My punishment and My commination! (21) And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember? (22)
