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 drawn nigh: the moon is split. (1) And if they see a sign, they turn away, and say: "This is continuous magic." (2) They also gave the lie to (the splitting asunder of the moon) and only followed their desires. Yet everything is destined to reach an end. (3) Surely there came to them narratives (of the ancient nations) that should suffice to deter (them from transgression), (4) Wisdom consummate. But warnings avail not. (5) Wherefore withdrew thou from them. The Day whereon the summoner will summon mankind unto a thing unpleasant. (6) With downcast eyes, they come forth from the graves as they were locusts spread abroad, (7) Hastening, with eyes transfixed, towards the Caller!- "Hard is this Day!", the Unbelievers will say. (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) He therefore prayed to his Lord, “I am overpowered, therefore avenge me.” (10) And We opened up the flood gates of the sky 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 bore him upon a well-planked vessel well-caulked (13) Floating under Our Eyes, a reward for him who had been rejected! (14) And certainly We left it as a sign, but is there anyone who (15) So how dreadful have been My torment and My warning! (16) And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember? (17) The 'Ad (people) (too) rejected (Truth): then how terrible was My Penalty and My Warning? (18) We sent a raging wind against them on a day of continuous calamity. (19) Plucking out men as if they were roots of palm-trees torn up (from the ground). (20) So how dreadful have been My torment and My warning. (21) And in truth We have made the Qur'an easy to remember; but is there any that remembereth? (22)
