The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
THE LAST HOUR draws near, and the moon is split asunder! (1) Yet, when they see a sign they [who deny the truth] turn their backs and say, "The same old 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 indeed there has come to them news (in this Quran) wherein there is (enough warning) to check (them from evil), (4) far-reaching wisdom [was held out to them]: but [since] all warnings have been of no avail, (5) So (O Muhammad SAW) withdraw from them. The Day that the caller will call (them) to a terrible thing. (6) Their eyes humbled, they will emerge from the graves as if they were locusts spreading, (7) running with outstretched necks to the Caller. The unbelievers shall say, 'This is a hard day!' (8) ۞ The people of Noah denied before them, and they denied Our servant and said, "A madman," and he was repelled. (9) And so he called unto his Lord, saying, 'I am vanquished; do Thou succour me!' (10) So We opened the gates of heaven, with water pouring forth. (11) And caused the earth to burst with springs, and the waters met for a matter already predestined. (12) but him We bore on that [vessel] made of [mere] planks and nails, (13) which sailed on under Our supervision: a reward for him who had been shown ingratitude. (14) We have left this as a sign: but will anyone take heed? (15) So how dreadful have been My torment and My warning! (16) We have made it easy to learn lessons from the Quran. Is there anyone who would receive admonition? (17) Ad cried lies. How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (18) For We sent against them a furious wind, on a Day of violent Disaster, (19) Plucking out men as if they were roots of palm-trees torn up (from the ground). (20) Then see how (dreadful) was My punishment after My warnings! (21) And We have indeed made the Qur’an easy to memorise, so is there one who would remember? (22)
