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 Dispenser of Grace
The Hour has drawn near, and the moon has been cleft asunder (the people of Makkah requested Prophet Muhammad SAW to show them a miracle, so he showed them the splitting of the moon). (1) (Regardless of any Signs these people see), they turn away and say: “This is an ongoing sorcery.” (2) They have belied, and follow their own fancies. But, every issue will be settled! (3) there has come to them many a tiding wherein there are warnings, (4) but the warnings have proved to have no effect on them. (5) Wherefore withdrew thou from them. The Day whereon the summoner will summon mankind unto a thing unpleasant. (6) They will come forth,- their eyes humbled - from (their) graves, (torpid) like locusts scattered abroad, (7) Hastening towards the caller, the disbelievers will say: "This is a hard Day." (8) ۞ Before these, the people of Nooh denied and they belied Our bondman and said, “He is a madman” and rebuffed him. (9) Noah prayed, "Lord, help me; I am defeated". (10) Thereupon We opened the gates of the sky for water to pour down, (11) and We made the earth burst forth with springs, and all this water converged to fulfil that which had been decreed. (12) But We bore him on an (Ark) made of broad planks and caulked with palm-fibre: (13) She floats under our eyes (and care): a recompense to one who had been rejected (with scorn)! (14) We made (the story of Noah) as evidence of the Truth. However, is there anyone who would take heed? (15) How was then My punishment and My commination! (16) And We have indeed made the Quran easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)? (17) 'Ad also gave the lie (to Hud). So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! (18) Verily We! We sent against them a raging wind on a day of calamity 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) Hence, indeed, We made this Qur'an easy to bear in mind: who, then, is willing to take it to heart? (22)
