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 nigh: the moon is split. (1) (Regardless of any Signs these people see), they turn away and say: “This is an ongoing sorcery.” (2) And they call (it) a lie, and follow their low desires; and every affair has its appointed term. (3) They have certainly received the kind of news in which there is a lesson and strong words of wisdom, (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) running with outstretched necks to the Caller. The unbelievers shall say, 'This is a hard day!' (8) ۞ Before them the People of Noah rejected (their messenger): they rejected Our servant, and said, "Here is one possessed!", and he was driven out. (9) He therefore prayed to his Lord, “I am overpowered, therefore avenge me.” (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) And We bore him upon a well-planked vessel well-caulked (13) which sailed on under Our supervision: a reward for him who had been shown ingratitude. (14) We made (the story of Noah) as evidence of the Truth. However, is there anyone who would take heed? (15) How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (16) And certainly We have made the Quran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will mind? (17) Ad cried lies. How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (18) We loosed against them a wind clamorous in a day of ill fortune continuous, (19) Smashing down men as if they were uprooted trunks of date palms. (20) How terrible was Our torment and the result of (their disregard) of Our warning. (21) Now We have made the Koran easy for Remembrance. Is there any that will remember? (22)
