The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
The Hour of Doom is drawing near and the moon is rent 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 surely there hath come unto them news whereof the purport should deter, (4) narratives that are full of consummate wisdom. But warnings do not avail them. (5) so ignore them. On the Day when the Crier will call out about a horrible event, (6) With downcast eyes, they come forth from the graves as they were locusts spread abroad, (7) Hastening to the inviter. The unbelievers shall say: This is a hard day. (8) ۞ The people of Noah had denied before them, and had called Our votary a liar, and said: "He is possessed," and repulsed him. (9) so he cried out to his Lord, saying, "I am overcome, so help me!" (10) Then We opened the gates of the heaven with rain pouring down (11) And We opened up the springs of the earth; and the waters met for a decreed end. (12) And We carried him on a [construction of] planks and nails, (13) She floats under our eyes (and care): a recompense to one who had been rejected (with scorn)! (14) And We have left this as a Sign (for all time): then is there any that will receive admonition? (15) Then how (terrible) was My Torment and My Warnings? (16) We have made the Koran easy to remember, is there any that will remember! (17) The 'Ad had also disavowed. How was then My punishment and My commination! (18) Verily We! We sent against them a raging wind on a day of calamity continuous. (19) Plucking out men as if they were uprooted stems of date-palms. (20) So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! (21) We have made it easy to learn lessons from the Quran: is there anyone who would receive admonition? (22)
