The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
THE HOUR HAS come and split is the moon. (1) But if they see a sign they turn away, and say: "This is the same old lie continuing," (2) They reject (the warning) and follow their (own) lusts but every matter has its appointed time. (3) And there has already come to them of information that in which there is deterrence - (4) Consummate wisdom-- but warnings do not avail; (5) Therefore turn away from them; on the day when the announcer will call towards a severe unknown matter (6) Their eyes humbled, they will emerge from the graves as if they were locusts spreading, (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) Therefore he called upon his Lord: I am overcome, come Thou then to help. (10) And so We caused the gates of heaven to open with water pouring down in torrents, (11) and We caused the earth to burst with gushing springs: so that the waters met for a purpose which had been decreed. (12) We bore him on an [ark] which, made of planks and nails, (13) That ran (upon the waters) in Our sight, as a reward for him who was rejected. (14) We have left this as a sign: but will anyone take heed? (15) How terrible was My torment and the result of (their disregard) of My warning. (16) Now We have made the Koran easy for Remembrance. Is there any that will remember? (17) Aad too belied. How then were My punishment and My warnings! (18) Surely We sent on them a tornado in a day of bitter ill-luck (19) it swept the people away as though they were palm-trunks uprooted: (20) How terrible was Our torment and the result of (their disregard) of Our warning. (21) And We have indeed made the Qur’an easy to memorise, so is there one who would remember? (22)
