The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
THE LAST HOUR draws near, and the moon is split asunder! (1) But if they [who reject all thought of the Last Hour] were to see a sign [of its approach,] they would turn aside and say: "An ever-recurring delusion!" (2) They reject (the warning) and follow their (own) lusts but every matter has its appointed time. (3) And withal, there has come unto them many a tiding that should have restrained [their arrogance]: (4) Containing consummate wisdom; yet warnings were of no avail. (5) So turn away from them. When on the Day the crier calls to the painful business, (6) They will come out of the graves with downcast eyes like an expanding swarm of locusts. (7) These disbelievers will 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) Then he called on his Lord: "I am one overcome: do Thou then help (me)!" (10) So We opened the gates of the cloud with water pouring (11) We caused the earth to burst forth with springs so that the waters could come together for a predestined purpose. (12) We bore him on an [ark] which, made of planks and nails, (13) Sailing, before Our eyes, a reward for him who was denied. (14) We have left this as a sign: but will anyone take heed? (15) How (great) was then My punishment and My warning! (16) And in truth We have made the Qur'an easy to remember; but is there any that remembereth? (17) Ad treated (the truth) as a lie, so how (great) was My punishment and My warning! (18) We sent a tumultuous wind against them on a day of unremitting misfortune, (19) Tearing men away as if they were the trunks of palm-trees torn up. (20) And how [severe] were My punishment and warning. (21) And We have indeed made the Quran easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)? (22)
