The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
The Hour hath drawn nigh, and the moon hath been rent in sunder. (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) And deny, and follow their own vain desires; but every matter is determined at its time. (3) Surely there came to them narratives (of the ancient nations) that should suffice to deter (them from transgression), (4) Effective wisdom; but warnings avail not. (5) Therefore, (O Prophet,) turn away from them. The Day that the Caller will call (them) to a terrible affair, (6) with down-cast eyes they shall go forth from their graves, as though they were scattered locusts. (7) running (with their necks extended) to the Caller. The unbelievers will say: 'This is indeed a harsh Day' (8) ۞ The people of Noah denied [the truth] before them. They belied Our messenger saying, "He is mad!" He was rebuffed, (9) Noah prayed, "Lord, help me; I am defeated". (10) Then We opened the gates of the heaven with rain pouring down (11) and caused the earth to gush with springs, so that the waters met for a predestined matter. (12) And We carried him on a (ship) made of planks and nails, (13) Which sailed right under Our eyes: A recompense for him who had been denied. (14) And We left the Ark as a Sign. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (15) How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (16) And assuredly We have made the Qur'an easy for admonition; is there then any one who would be admonished? (17) (The tribe of) A'ad rejected warnings. Then how (dreadful) was My punishment after My warnings. (18) Lo! We let loose on them a raging wind on a day of constant calamity, (19) It swept people away as if they were trunks of uprooted palm trees. (20) So how did My punishment turn out, and My warnings? (21) But We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition? (22)
