The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
The Hour has come near, and the moon has split [in two]. (1) And if they behold a sign, they turn away and say: magic continuous (2) And deny, and follow their own vain desires; but every matter is determined at its time. (3) They have certainly received the kind of news in which there is a lesson and strong words of wisdom, (4) The pinnacle of wisdom so how will the Heralds of warning provide any benefit? (5) So turn thou away from them. Upon the day when the Caller shall call unto a horrible thing, (6) they will come out of their graves, their eyes cast down, hastening towards their Summoner as locusts rushing about. (7) Hastening to the inviter. The unbelievers shall say: This is a hard 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) He therefore prayed to his Lord, “I am overpowered, therefore avenge me.” (10) We therefore opened the gates of heaven, with water flowing furiously. (11) and caused the earth to gush with springs, so that the waters met for a predestined matter. (12) But We bore him on a (vessel made) of planks and oakum, (13) She floats under our eyes (and care): a recompense to one who had been rejected (with scorn)! (14) And We left it as a sign so is there one who would ponder? (15) Then see how (dreadful) was My punishment after My warnings! (16) And in truth We have made the Qur'an easy to remember; but is there any that remembereth? (17) The people of 'Ad too rejected the truth. How terrible was My punishment and My warning. (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) Then, how (terrible) was My Torment and My Warnings? (21) And certainly We have made the Quran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will mind? (22)
