The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
The Last Day came near, and the moon split apart. (1) Yet if they see a sign (the unbelievers) turn their backs and say: 'This is but a continuation of sorcery' (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) And certainly some narratives have come to them wherein is prevention-- (4) The pinnacle of wisdom so how will the Heralds of warning provide any benefit? (5) Therefore turn away from them; on the day when the announcer will call towards a severe unknown matter (6) They will come forth, with humbled eyes from (their) graves as if they were locusts spread abroad, (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) Then he invoked his Lord (saying): "I have been overcome, so help (me)!" (10) So We opened the gates of the sky with water pouring down in torrents, (11) And caused the earth to burst with springs, and the waters met for a matter already predestined. (12) And We bore him on that which was made of planks and nails (13) Moving forward under Our eyes: a requital for him who had been rejected. (14) And assuredly We left it for a sign. Is there then anyone who would be admonished? (15) How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (16) And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember? (17) The 'Ad (people) (too) rejected (Truth): then how terrible was My Penalty and My Warning? (18) Surely We sent on them a tornado in a day of bitter ill-luck (19) which tore people away and hurled them as though they were trunks of uprooted palm-trees. (20) How terrible was Our torment and the result of (their disregard) of Our warning. (21) And assuredly We have made the Qur'an easy for admonition; is there then any one who would be admonished! (22)
