The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
The Hour has drawn near, and the moon has been cleft asunder (the people of Makkah requested Prophet Muhammad SAW to show them a miracle, so he showed them the splitting of the moon). (1) Yet, when they see a sign they [who deny the truth] turn their backs and say, "The same old sorcery!" (2) They have cried lies, and followed their caprices; but every matter is settled. (3) And surely there hath come unto them news whereof the purport should deter, (4) Effective wisdom; but warnings avail not. (5) (Muhammad), leave them alone. On the day when they will be called to a terrible punishment, (6) they will come out of their graves, their eyes cast down, hastening towards their Summoner as locusts rushing about. (7) They shall be hurrying forth towards the caller, and the unbelievers (who had once denied this Day), will say: “This is a woeful 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) Thereupon he called out to his Sustainer, "Verily, I am defeated; come Thou, then, to my succour!" (10) So We opened the gates of the cloud with water pouring (11) And caused the earth to gush forth springs, so that the waters met for a predestined purpose. (12) We carried him, (Noah), on a vessel built with boards fixed together with nails, (13) That ran (upon the waters) in Our sight, as a reward for him who was rejected. (14) And We left it as a sign so is there one who would ponder? (15) But how (terrible) was My Penalty and My Warning? (16) Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will be warned? (17) The 'Ad had also disavowed. How was then My punishment and My commination! (18) Lo! We let loose on them a raging wind on a day of constant calamity, (19) which hurled people around like uprooted trunks of palm-trees. (20) Then, how (terrible) was My Torment and My Warnings? (21) Now We have made the Koran easy for Remembrance. Is there any that will remember? (22)
