The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
The Hour has come near, and the moon has split [in two]. (1) Yet if they see a sign (the unbelievers) turn their backs and say: 'This is but a continuation of sorcery' (2) And deny, and follow their own vain desires; but every matter is determined at its time. (3) Tidings containing a deterrent have come to them (4) narratives that are full of consummate wisdom. But warnings do not avail them. (5) Therefore turn away from them; on the day when the announcer will call towards a severe unknown matter (6) with down-cast eyes they shall go forth from their graves, as though they were scattered locusts. (7) Hastening toward the summoner. The infidels will say: this is a day diffrcult. (8) ۞ Before them Noah's people also gave the lie (to his Message). They rejected Our servant as a liar, saying: “He is a madman”; and he was rebuffed. (9) And so he called unto his Lord, saying, 'I am vanquished; do Thou succour me!' (10) And so We caused the gates of heaven to open with water pouring down in torrents, (11) And We opened up the springs of the earth; and the waters met for a decreed end. (12) And We carried Nooh upon a ship of wooden planks and nails. (13) Sailing under Our observation as reward for he who had been denied. (14) And indeed, We have left this as a sign, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)? (15) Then see how (dreadful) was My punishment after My warnings! (16) Hence, indeed, We made this Qur'an easy to bear in mind: who, then, is willing to take it to heart? (17) 'Ad also gave the lie (to Hud). So how awesome 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) Tearing men away as if they were the trunks of palm-trees torn up. (20) So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! (21) And in truth We have made the Qur'an easy to remember; but is there any that remembereth? (22)
