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) And when they see a sign, they turn away and say, “Just a customary magic!” (2) They denied (the Truth) and followed their own lusts. Yet everything will come to a decision (3) Surely there came to them narratives (of the ancient nations) that should suffice to deter (them from transgression), (4) Extensive wisdom - but warning does not avail [them]. (5) So turn away from them, (O Prophet). On the Day when a caller shall call them to a thing most terrible, (6) Their eyes humbled, they will emerge from the graves as if they were locusts spreading, (7) These disbelievers will say, "This is a hard day". (8) ۞ (Long) before them the nation of Noah belied. They belied Our worshiper saying: 'Mad' and he was reprimanded. (9) Then he called on his Lord: "I am one overcome: do Thou then help (me)!" (10) We opened the gates of the sky and water started to pour down. (11) We caused the earth to burst forth with springs so that the waters could come together for a predestined purpose. (12) And We carried him upon a thing of planks and nails, (13) Which sailed right under Our eyes: A recompense for him who had been denied. (14) And We left it as a sign, so is there any who will remember? (15) How was then My punishment and My commination! (16) We have made the Quran easy to understand, but is there anyone who would pay attention? (17) The 'Ad (people) (too) rejected (Truth): then how terrible was My Penalty and My Warning? (18) We let loose against them a violent roaring wind on a day of ill omen, continuous, (19) Plucking out men as if they were uprooted stems of date-palms. (20) How [dreadful] was My punishment and My warning! (21) And certainly We have made the Quran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will mind? (22)
