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 Dispenser of Grace
The Hour has drawn nigh: the moon is split. (1) (Regardless of any Signs these people see), they turn away and say: “This is an ongoing sorcery.” (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) Wisdom consummate. But warnings avail not. (5) So turn thou away from them. Upon the day when the Caller shall call unto a horrible thing, (6) They will come out from the graves with eyes lowered, as if they were spread locusts. (7) Hastening, with eyes transfixed, towards the Caller!- "Hard is this Day!", the Unbelievers will say. (8) ۞ The folk of Noah denied before them, yea, they denied Our slave and said: A madman; and he was repulsed. (9) So he invoked his Lord, "Indeed, I am overpowered, so help." (10) So We opened the gates of heaven, with water pouring forth. (11) And We made water to flow forth in the land in springs, so the water gathered together according to a measure already ordained. (12) And We carried him on a [construction of] planks and nails, (13) and it floated under Our eyes: a recompense for him who had been rejected with ingratitude. (14) And We left it as a sign, so is there any who will remember? (15) So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! (16) We have made this Qur'an easy as a reminder. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (17) 'Aad denied; and how [severe] were My punishment and warning. (18) Verily, We sent against them a furious wind of harsh voice on a day of evil omen and continuous calamity. (19) Plucking out men as if they were roots of palm-trees torn up (from the ground). (20) How was then My punishment and My commination! (21) Hence, indeed, We made this Qur'an easy to bear in mind: who, then, is willing to take it to heart? (22)
