The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
The Hour of Resurrection drew near and the moon split asunder. (1) But if they see a Sign, they turn away, and say, "This is (but) transient magic." (2) They denied (the Truth) and followed their own lusts. Yet everything will come to a decision (3) And indeed the news which had a lot of deterrence, came to them. (4) Perfect wisdom (this Quran), but (the preaching of) warners benefit them not, (5) So leave them, [O Muhammad]. The Day the Caller calls to something forbidding, (6) With looks downcast they will come forth, from the tombs, as though they were locusts scattered abroad. (7) running with outstretched necks to the Caller. The unbelievers shall say, 'This is a hard day!' (8) ۞ The people of Noah, who lived before them, had also rejected (Our guidance). They rejected Our servant and said, "He is an insane person so let us drive him away". (9) He therefore prayed to his Lord, “I am overpowered, therefore avenge me.” (10) So We opened the gates of the sky with water pouring down in torrents, (11) And caused the earth to gush forth springs, so that the waters met for a predestined purpose. (12) And We carried him on a [construction of] planks and nails, (13) that ran on under Our Eyes, a recompense for him because he had been disbelieved. (14) And We have left this as a Sign (for all time): then is there any that will receive admonition? (15) And how [severe] were My punishment and warning. (16) We have made it easy to learn lessons from the Quran. Is there anyone who would receive admonition? (17) 'Aad denied; and how [severe] were My punishment and warning. (18) And We sent against them a howling wind in a Day of continuous of ill fortune (19) and snatched people up as though they were stumps of uprooted palmtrees. (20) How then were My punishment and My warnings! (21) And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember? (22)
