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 come and split is the moon. (1) And if they behold a portent they turn away and say: Prolonged illusion. (2) And they call (it) a lie, and follow their low desires; and every affair has its appointed term. (3) Messages deterring them from evil had come to them, (4) Consummate wisdom-- but warnings do not avail; (5) So leave them, [O Muhammad]. The Day the Caller calls to something forbidding, (6) with downcast eyes they shall come out of their graves, as if they were locusts milling about (7) Hastening to the inviter. The unbelievers shall say: This is a hard day. (8) ۞ The people of Noah had denied before them, and had called Our votary a liar, and said: "He is possessed," and repulsed him. (9) Therefore he called upon his Lord: I am overcome, come Thou then to help. (10) We opened the Gates of Heaven with torrential water (11) And caused springs to gush out from the earth, so that the two waters met totalling a quantity that had been destined. (12) And We carried him upon a thing of planks and nails, (13) She floats under our eyes (and care): a recompense to one who had been rejected (with scorn)! (14) And verily We left it as a token; but is there any that remembereth? (15) And how [severe] were My punishment and warning. (16) Now We have made the Koran easy for Remembrance. Is there any that will remember? (17) The 'Ad (people) (too) rejected (Truth): then how terrible was My Penalty and My Warning? (18) We let loose against them a violent roaring wind on a day of ill omen, continuous, (19) and snatched people up as though they were stumps of uprooted palmtrees. (20) How was then My punishment and My commination! (21) We have made it easy to learn lessons from the Quran: is there anyone who would receive admonition? (22)
