The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
The Hour of Resurrection drew near and the moon split asunder. (1) And if they see a sign, they turn away, and say: "This is continuous magic." (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) there has come to them many a tiding wherein there are warnings, (4) profound in wisdom, but all warnings have been of no avail: (5) turn thou away from them. On the Day when the Summoning Voice will summon [man] unto something that the mind cannot conceive, (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 denied before them, and they denied Our servant and said, "A madman," and he was repelled. (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 caused springs to gush out from the earth, so that the two waters met totalling a quantity that had been destined. (12) And We carried him on a [construction of] planks and nails, (13) Floating under Our Eyes, a reward for him who had been rejected! (14) And We have left this as a Sign (for all time): then is there any that will receive admonition? (15) And how severe is the suffering which I inflict when My warnings are disregarded! (16) And We have indeed made the Qur’an easy to memorise, so is there one who would remember? (17) Ad cried lies. How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (18) We indeed sent towards them a severe windstorm, on a day the ill luck of which lasted upon them forever. (19) Sweeping men away as though they were uprooted trunks of palm-trees. (20) Yea, how (terrible) was My Penalty and My Warning! (21) Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will pay heed? (22)
