The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
The Last Hour draws near and the moon is split asunder. (1) And if they behold a portent they turn away and say: Prolonged illusion. (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) Tidings containing a deterrent have come to them (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) Their eyes cast down, going forth from their graves as if they were scattered locusts, (7) hastening towards the Crier. Those who deny the truth will cry, "This is such a hard day!" (8) ۞ The people of Noah cried lies before them; they cried lies to Our servant, and said, 'A man possessed!' And he was rejected. (9) So he prayed to his Lord: "I am helpless, deliver me." (10) So We opened the gates of heaven with water pouring forth. (11) and made the earth to gush with fountains, and the waters met for a matter decreed. (12) And We bare him on a thing of planks and nails. (13) and it floated under Our eyes: a recompense for him who had been rejected with ingratitude. (14) And We left it as a sign, so is there any who will remember? (15) How was then My punishment and My commination! (16) And assuredly We have made the Qur'an easy for admonition; is there then any one who would be admonished? (17) The people of 'Ad too rejected the truth. How terrible was My punishment and My warning. (18) And We sent against them a howling wind in a Day of continuous of ill fortune (19) It swept people away as if they were trunks of uprooted palm trees. (20) How terrible was Our torment and the result of (their disregard) of Our warning. (21) And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember? (22)
