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 Most Merciful
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) Yet if they see a sign they turn away, and they say 'A continuous sorcery!' (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) And withal, there has come unto them many a tiding that should have restrained [their arrogance]: (4) profound in wisdom, but all warnings have been of no avail: (5) so ignore them. On the Day when the Crier will call out about a horrible event, (6) They will come forth, with humbled eyes from (their) graves as if they were locusts spread abroad, (7) Hastening toward the summoner; the disbelievers say: This is a hard day. (8) ۞ The people of Nuh (Noah) denied (their Messenger) before them, they rejected Our slave, and said: "A madman!" and he was insolently rebuked and threatened. (9) So he prayed to his Lord: "I am helpless, deliver me." (10) And so We caused the gates of heaven to open with water pouring down in torrents, (11) and caused the earth to burst forth with springs, so that the waters met for a purpose pre-ordained: (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 indeed, We have left this as a sign, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)? (15) Then how (terrible) was My Torment and My Warnings? (16) And in truth We have made the Qur'an easy to remember; but is there any that remembereth? (17) 'Ad also gave the lie (to Hud). So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! (18) Surely We sent on them a tornado in a day of bitter ill-luck (19) Carrying men away as though they were trunks of palm-trees uprooted. (20) So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! (21) We have made it easy to learn lessons from the Quran: is there anyone who would receive admonition? (22)
