The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
The Last Hour draws near and the moon is split asunder. (1) But if they [who reject all thought of the Last Hour] were to see a sign [of its approach,] they would turn aside and say: "An ever-recurring delusion!" (2) They have belied, and follow their own fancies. But, every issue will be settled! (3) They have certainly received the kind of news in which there is a lesson and strong words of wisdom, (4) but the warnings have proved to have no effect on them. (5) So turn thou away from them. Upon the day when the Caller shall call unto a horrible thing, (6) with down-cast eyes they shall go forth from their graves, as though they were scattered locusts. (7) Hastening toward the summoner; the disbelievers 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) Then he called on his Lord: "I am one overcome: do Thou then help (me)!" (10) Then We opened the gates of the heaven with rain pouring down (11) And We made the earth break forth with springs; so that the water met for an affair already decreed. (12) And We bore him on that which was made of planks and nails (13) Sailing under Our observation as reward for he who had been denied. (14) And indeed, We have caused such [floating vessels] to remain forever a sign [of Our grace unto man]: who, then, is willing to take it to heart? (15) Then see how (dreadful) was My punishment after My warnings! (16) We have made the Quran easy to understand, but is there anyone who would pay attention? (17) The tribe of A’ad denied so how did My punishment turn out, and My warnings? (18) On an unfortunate day We sent upon them a continuous violent wind (19) Plucking out men as if they were uprooted stems of date-palms. (20) So how dreadful have been My torment and My warning. (21) But We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition? (22)
