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 (of Judgment) is nigh, and the moon is cleft asunder. (1) But if they see a Sign, they turn away, and say, "This is (but) transient magic." (2) They reject (the warning) and follow their (own) lusts but every matter has its appointed time. (3) And certainly some narratives have come to them wherein is prevention-- (4) Wisdom consummate. But warnings avail not. (5) So turn away from them, (O Prophet). On the Day when a caller shall call them to a thing most terrible, (6) They will come out from the graves with eyes lowered, as if they were spread locusts. (7) running in confusion towards the Summoning Voice; [and] those who [now] deny the truth will exclaim, "Calamitous is this 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) Then he supplicated to his Lord, (saying): 'I am overcome, help me' (10) And so We caused the gates of heaven to open with water pouring down in torrents, (11) And We made the earth break forth with springs; so that the water met for an affair already decreed. (12) And We bore him on that which was made of planks and nails (13) which sailed on under Our supervision: a reward for him who had been shown ingratitude. (14) And We left the Ark as a Sign. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (15) How terrible was My torment and the result of (their disregard) of My warning. (16) We have made this Qur'an easy as a reminder. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (17) 'Ad also gave the lie (to Hud). So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! (18) We let loose against them a violent roaring wind on a day of ill omen, continuous, (19) Smashing down men as if they were uprooted trunks of date palms. (20) How was then My punishment and My commination! (21) We have made the Quran easy to understand, but is there anyone who would pay attention? (22)
