The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
The hour drew nigh and the moon did rend asunder. (1) And if they behold a sign, they turn away and say: magic continuous (2) They have cried lies, and followed their caprices; but every matter is settled. (3) And surely there hath come unto them news whereof the purport should deter, (4) The pinnacle of wisdom so how will the Heralds of warning provide any benefit? (5) Therefore, (O Prophet,) turn away from them. The Day that the Caller will call (them) to a terrible affair, (6) they will come forth from their graves, with their eyes downcast, [swarming about] like locusts scattered [by the wind,] (7) They will hasten forward to the caller, gazes fixed. And the unbelievers will say: "This is the day of untold woe." (8) ۞ Before them Noah's people also gave the lie (to his Message). They rejected Our servant as a liar, saying: “He is a madman”; and he was rebuffed. (9) So he cried unto his Lord, saying: I am vanquished, so give help. (10) So We opened the gates of the cloud with water pouring (11) and made the earth to gush with fountains, and the waters met for a matter decreed. (12) And We bare him on a thing of planks and nails. (13) running before Our eyes-a recompense for him denied. (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) Now We have made the Koran easy for Remembrance. Is there any that will remember? (17) The tribe of A’ad denied so how did My punishment turn out, and My warnings? (18) We indeed sent towards them a severe windstorm, on a day the ill luck of which lasted upon them forever. (19) Tearing men away as if they were the trunks of palm-trees torn up. (20) So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! (21) We have made the Qur'an easy to derive lessons from. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (22)
