The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
The Hour has come near, and the moon has split [in two]. (1) (Regardless of any Signs these people see), they turn away and say: “This is an ongoing sorcery.” (2) And they call (it) a lie, and follow their low desires; and every affair has its appointed term. (3) They have certainly received the kind of news in which there is a lesson and strong words of wisdom, (4) Extensive wisdom - but warning does not avail [them]. (5) So turn (your) back on them (for) the day when the inviter shall invite them to a hard task, (6) They will come out of the graves with downcast eyes like an expanding swarm of locusts. (7) running in confusion towards the Summoning Voice; [and] those who [now] deny the truth will exclaim, "Calamitous is this Day!" (8) ۞ The people of Noah denied [the truth] before them. They belied Our messenger saying, "He is mad!" He was rebuffed, (9) Then he called upon His Lord: “Verily I am vanquished; so come You to my aid.” (10) So We opened the gates of the sky with water pouring down in torrents, (11) and We made the earth burst forth with springs, and all this water converged to fulfil that which had been decreed. (12) We bore him on an [ark] which, made of planks and nails, (13) Sailing, before Our eyes, a reward for him who was denied. (14) And We left it for a sign. Is there any that will remember? (15) How was then My punishment and My commination! (16) We have made this Qur'an easy as a reminder. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (17) The 'Ad (people) (too) rejected (Truth): then how terrible was My Penalty and My Warning? (18) Indeed, We sent upon them a screaming wind on a day of continuous misfortune, (19) Extracting the people as if they were trunks of palm trees uprooted. (20) So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! (21) And assuredly We have made the Qur'an easy for admonition; is there then any one who would be admonished! (22)
