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 drew nigh and the moon was rent in twain. (1) (Regardless of any Signs these people see), they turn away and say: “This is an ongoing sorcery.” (2) They have belied, and follow their own fancies. But, every issue will be settled! (3) there has come to them many a tiding wherein there are warnings, (4) narratives that are full of consummate wisdom. But warnings do not avail them. (5) turn thou away from them. On the Day when the Summoning Voice will summon [man] unto something that the mind cannot conceive, (6) abasing their eyes, they shall come forth from the tombs as if they were scattered grasshoppers, (7) Hastening, with eyes transfixed, towards the Caller!- "Hard is this Day!", the Unbelievers will say. (8) ۞ The people of Noah denied [the truth] before them. They belied Our messenger saying, "He is mad!" He was rebuffed, (9) so he cried out to his Lord, saying, "I am overcome, so help me!" (10) Thereupon We opened the gates of the sky for water to pour down, (11) And We made water to flow forth in the land in springs, so the water gathered together according to a measure already ordained. (12) But We bore him on a (vessel made) of planks and oakum, (13) Which sailed right under Our eyes: A recompense for him who had been denied. (14) And indeed, We have caused such [floating vessels] to remain forever a sign [of Our grace unto man]: who, then, is willing to take it to heart? (15) How then were My chastisement and My warnings? (16) We have made it easy to learn lessons from the Quran. Is there anyone who would receive admonition? (17) 'Aad denied; and how [severe] were My punishment and warning. (18) We sent a tumultuous wind against them on a day of unremitting misfortune, (19) Which snatched away men as though they were palm trees pulled out by the roots. (20) for, how severe is the suffering which I inflict when My warnings are disregarded! (21) We have made it easy to learn lessons from the Quran: is there anyone who would receive admonition? (22)
