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 Last Hour draws near and the moon is split asunder. (1) And if they see a miracle they turn aside and say: Transient magic. (2) They have cried lies, and followed their caprices; but every matter is settled. (3) And there have come to them such tidings as contain a deterrent -- (4) The pinnacle of wisdom so how will the Heralds of warning provide any benefit? (5) Therefore turn away from them; on the day when the announcer will call towards a severe unknown matter (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 called upon His Lord: “Verily I am vanquished; so come You to my aid.” (10) And We opened up the flood gates of the sky with water pouring down in torrents, (11) And caused the earth to burst with springs, and the waters met for a matter already predestined. (12) but him We bore on that [vessel] made of [mere] planks and nails, (13) and it floated under Our eyes: a recompense for him who had been rejected with ingratitude. (14) And We left it for a sign. Is there any that will remember? (15) So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! (16) We have made the Quran easy to understand, but is there anyone who would pay attention? (17) The 'Ad had also disavowed. How was then My punishment and My commination! (18) Verily, We sent against them a furious wind of harsh voice on a day of evil omen and continuous calamity. (19) and snatched people up as though they were stumps of uprooted palmtrees. (20) Then see how (dreadful) was My punishment after My warnings! (21) We have made the Quran easy to understand, but is there anyone who would pay attention? (22)
