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 Compassionate
The hour drew nigh and the moon did rend asunder. (1) And if they see a sign, they turn away, and say: "This is continuous magic." (2) They denied (the Truth) and followed their own lusts. Yet everything will come to a decision (3) They have certainly received the kind of news in which there is a lesson and strong words of wisdom, (4) far-reaching wisdom [was held out to them]: but [since] all warnings have been of no avail, (5) So leave them, [O Muhammad]. The Day the Caller calls to something forbidding, (6) They will come forth,- their eyes humbled - from (their) graves, (torpid) like locusts scattered abroad, (7) running (with their necks extended) to the Caller. The unbelievers will say: 'This is indeed a harsh Day' (8) ۞ The people of Noah, who lived before them, had also rejected (Our guidance). They rejected Our servant and said, "He is an insane person so let us drive him away". (9) So he prayed to his Lord: "I am helpless, deliver me." (10) Then We opened the gates of the heaven with rain pouring down (11) and caused the earth to burst forth with springs, so that the waters met for a purpose pre-ordained: (12) And We carried Nooh upon a ship of wooden planks and nails. (13) She floats under our eyes (and care): a recompense to one who had been rejected (with scorn)! (14) And We left it as a sign. Is there anyone who will be warned? (15) So how did My punishment turn out, and My threats? (16) We have made this Qur'an easy as a reminder. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (17) Aad too belied. How then were My punishment and My warnings! (18) We sent a raging wind against them on a day of continuous calamity. (19) Smashing down men as if they were uprooted trunks of date palms. (20) How terrible was Our torment and the result of (their disregard) of Our warning. (21) We have made the Qur'an easy to derive lessons from. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (22)
