The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
The hour drew nigh and the moon was rent in twain. (1) Yet, when they see a sign they [who deny the truth] turn their backs and say, "The same old sorcery!" (2) And they denied and followed their own desires, whereas each matter has been decided! (3) And assuredly there hath come unto them tidings wherein is a deterrent. (4) which are full of wisdom; but the warnings do not help. (5) So turn away from them. When on the Day the crier calls to the painful business, (6) they will come out of their graves, their eyes cast down, hastening towards their Summoner as locusts rushing about. (7) Hastening toward the summoner. The infidels will say: this is a day diffrcult. (8) ۞ The people of Nuh (Noah) denied (their Messenger) before them, they rejected Our slave, and said: "A madman!" and he was insolently rebuked and threatened. (9) so he cried out to his Lord, saying, "I am overcome, so help me!" (10) So We opened the gates of heaven, with water pouring forth. (11) And We caused the earth to gush forth with springs. So the waters (of the heaven and the earth) met for a matter predestined. (12) We bore him on an [ark] which, made 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. Is there anyone who will be warned? (15) So how awesome 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 people of `Ad rejected Our guidance. How terrible was My torment and the result (of their disregard) of My warning. (18) We loosed against them a wind clamorous in a day of ill fortune continuous, (19) Which snatched away men as though they were palm trees pulled out by the roots. (20) How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (21) We have made it easy to learn lessons from the Quran: is there anyone who would receive admonition? (22)
