The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
The Hour is drawing near, and the moon is split (in two). (1) And when they see a sign, they turn away and say, “Just a customary magic!” (2) They deny the truth and follow their own whims, every matter has its appointed time, (3) And withal, there has come unto them many a tiding that should have restrained [their arrogance]: (4) a Wisdom far-reaching; yet warnings do not avail. (5) Wherefore withdrew thou from them. The Day whereon the summoner will summon mankind unto a thing unpleasant. (6) they will come out of their graves, their eyes cast down, hastening towards their Summoner as locusts rushing about. (7) Hastening, with eyes transfixed, towards the Caller!- "Hard is this Day!", the Unbelievers will say. (8) ۞ Before them the People of Noah rejected (their messenger): they rejected Our servant, and said, "Here is one possessed!", and he was driven out. (9) Noah prayed, "Lord, help me; I am defeated". (10) Thereupon We opened the gates of the sky for water to pour down, (11) We caused the earth to burst forth with springs so that the waters could come together for a predestined purpose. (12) We carried him in a well built, watertight vessel made from planks (of wood) (13) Sailing in front of Our sight; as a reward for the sake of one who was rejected. (14) And verily We left it as a token; but is there any that remembereth? (15) How terrible was My torment and the result of (their disregard) of My warning. (16) We have made the Koran easy to remember, is there any that will remember! (17) The people of `Ad rejected Our guidance. How terrible was My torment and the result (of their disregard) of My warning. (18) We loosed against them a wind clamorous in a day of ill fortune continuous, (19) Smashing down men as if they were uprooted trunks of date palms. (20) How was then My punishment and My commination! (21) Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will pay heed? (22)
