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 hath drawn nigh, and the moon hath been rent in sunder. (1) And if they see a sign, they turn away, and say: "This is continuous magic." (2) They denied (the Truth) and followed their own lusts. Yet everything will come to a decision (3) Surely there came to them narratives (of the ancient nations) that should suffice to deter (them from transgression), (4) far-reaching wisdom [was held out to them]: but [since] all warnings have been of no avail, (5) Therefore turn away from them; on the day when the announcer will call towards a severe unknown matter (6) with down-cast eyes they shall go forth from their graves, as though they were scattered locusts. (7) running in confusion towards the Summoning Voice; [and] those who [now] deny the truth will exclaim, "Calamitous is this Day!" (8) ۞ Before them the People of Noah rejected (their messenger): they rejected Our servant, and said, "Here is one possessed!", and he was driven out. (9) so he cried out to his Lord, saying, "I am overcome, so help me!" (10) And so We caused the gates of heaven to open with water pouring down in torrents, (11) And We opened up the springs of the earth; and the waters met for a decreed end. (12) We carried him, (Noah), on a vessel built with boards fixed together with nails, (13) Sailing in front of Our sight; as a reward for the sake of one who was rejected. (14) And We have left this as a Sign (for all time): then is there any that will receive admonition? (15) So how did My punishment turn out, and My threats? (16) Now We have made the Koran easy for Remembrance. Is there any that will remember? (17) TO THE TRUTH gave the lie [the tribe of] Ad: and how severe was the suffering which I inflicted when My warnings were disregarded! (18) Indeed, We sent upon them a screaming wind on a day of continuous misfortune, (19) which hurled people around like uprooted trunks of palm-trees. (20) So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! (21) And certainly We have made the Quran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will mind? (22)
