The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
The Hour (of Judgment) is nigh, and the moon is cleft asunder. (1) Yet if they see a sign (the unbelievers) turn their backs and say: 'This is but a continuation of sorcery' (2) They have rejected it and have followed their own desires, but all matters will be settled (by God). (3) They have certainly received the kind of news in which there is a lesson and strong words of wisdom, (4) but the warnings have proved to have no effect on them. (5) (Muhammad), leave them alone. On the day when they will be called to a terrible punishment, (6) they will come forth from their graves, with their eyes downcast, [swarming about] like locusts scattered [by the wind,] (7) Hastening toward the summoner; the disbelievers say: This is a hard day. (8) ۞ The people of Noah denied [the truth] before them. They belied Our messenger saying, "He is mad!" He was rebuffed, (9) So he prayed to his Lord: "I am helpless, deliver me." (10) So We opened the gates of the cloud with water pouring (11) And We caused the earth to gush forth with springs, so the waters met (and rose) to the extent decreed. (12) But We bore him on a (vessel made) of planks and oakum, (13) Moving forward under Our eyes: a requital for him who had been rejected. (14) We have left this as a sign: but will anyone take heed? (15) But how (terrible) was My Penalty and My Warning? (16) We have made the Koran easy to remember, is there any that will remember! (17) TO THE TRUTH gave the lie [the tribe of] Ad: and how severe was the suffering which I inflicted when My warnings were disregarded! (18) On an unfortunate day We sent upon them a continuous violent wind (19) and snatched people up as though they were stumps of uprooted palmtrees. (20) How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (21) We have made the Koran easy to remember, is there any that will remember? (22)
