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 HAS come and split is the moon. (1) But if they see a Sign, they turn away, and say, "This is (but) transient magic." (2) And they denied and followed their inclinations. But for every matter is a [time of] settlement. (3) Surely there came to them narratives (of the ancient nations) that should suffice to deter (them from transgression), (4) The pinnacle of wisdom so how will the Heralds of warning provide any benefit? (5) So turn (your) back on them (for) the day when the inviter shall invite them to a hard task, (6) They will come forth,- their eyes humbled - from (their) graves, (torpid) like locusts scattered abroad, (7) Hastening toward the summoner; the disbelievers say: This is a hard day. (8) ۞ [LONG] BEFORE those [who now deny resurrection] did Noah's people call it a lie; and they gave the lie to Our servant and said, "Mad is he!" - and he was repulsed. (9) Then he invoked his Lord (saying): "I have been overcome, so help (me)!" (10) And so We caused the gates of heaven to open with water pouring down in torrents, (11) and We made the earth burst forth with springs, and all this water converged to fulfil that which had been decreed. (12) But We bore him on an (Ark) made of broad planks and caulked with palm-fibre: (13) which floated on the water before Our very eyes. The flood was a recompense for the deeds of the disbelievers. (14) We have left it as a sign. Is there any that will remember? (15) And how severe is the suffering which I inflict when My warnings are disregarded! (16) We have made the Quran easy to understand, but is there anyone who would pay attention? (17) 'Aad denied; and how [severe] were My punishment and 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) So how dreadful have been My torment and My warning. (21) And in truth We have made the Qur'an easy to remember; but is there any that remembereth? (22)
