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 drew nigh and the moon was rent in twain. (1) Whenever they see a miracle, they turn away from it and say, "This is just a powerful magic". (2) They denied (the Truth) and followed their own lusts. Yet everything will come to a decision (3) There have already come to them Recitals wherein there is (enough) to check (them), (4) far-reaching wisdom [was held out to them]: but [since] all warnings have been of no avail, (5) Wherefore withdrew thou from them. The Day whereon the summoner will summon mankind unto a thing unpleasant. (6) abasing their eyes, they shall come forth from the tombs as if they were scattered grasshoppers, (7) Racing ahead toward the Caller. The disbelievers will say, "This is a difficult Day." (8) ۞ There belied before them the people of Nuh. So they belied Our bondman and said: a madman; and moreover he was reproven. (9) Thereupon he prayed unto his Lord: verily am overcome, so vindicate me. (10) So We opened the gates of heaven with water pouring forth. (11) and caused the earth to gush with springs, so that the waters met for a predestined matter. (12) We carried him in a well built, watertight vessel made from planks (of wood) (13) She floats under our eyes (and care): a recompense to one who had been rejected (with scorn)! (14) We have left this as a sign: but will anyone take heed? (15) How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (16) Now We have made the Koran easy for Remembrance. Is there any that will remember? (17) Ad cried lies. How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (18) We loosed against them a wind clamorous in a day of ill fortune continuous, (19) Sweeping men away as though they were uprooted trunks of palm-trees. (20) So how dreadful have been My torment and My warning. (21) Hence, indeed, We made this Qur'an easy to bear in mind: who, then, is willing to take it to heart? (22)
