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 Dispenser of Grace
The hour drew nigh and the moon did rend asunder. (1) But if they see a sign they turn away, and say: "This is the same old lie continuing," (2) And they denied and followed their inclinations. But for every matter is a [time of] settlement. (3) There have already come to them Recitals wherein there is (enough) to check (them), (4) The pinnacle of wisdom so how will the Heralds of warning provide any benefit? (5) (Muhammad), leave them alone. On the day when they will be called to a terrible punishment, (6) Their eyes humbled, they will emerge from the graves as if they were locusts spreading, (7) running in confusion towards the Summoning Voice; [and] those who [now] deny the truth will exclaim, "Calamitous is this Day!" (8) ۞ [LONG] BEFORE those [who now deny resurrection] did Noah's people call it a lie; and they gave the lie to Our servant and said, "Mad is he!" - and he was repulsed. (9) Then he invoked his Lord (saying): "I have been overcome, so help (me)!" (10) So We opened the gates of heaven, with water pouring forth. (11) And We caused the earth to gush forth with springs. So the waters (of the heaven and the earth) met for a matter predestined. (12) We carried him, (Noah), on a vessel built with boards fixed together with nails, (13) Sailing under Our observation as reward for he who had been denied. (14) And certainly We left it as a sign, but is there anyone who (15) And how [severe] were My punishment and warning. (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) Surely We sent on them a tornado in a day of bitter ill-luck (19) Plucking out men as if they were uprooted stems of date-palms. (20) How (great) was then My punishment and My warning! (21) Hence, indeed, We made this Qur'an easy to bear in mind: who, then, is willing to take it to heart? (22)
