The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
The Hour (of Judgment) is nigh, and the moon is cleft asunder. (1) And if they see a miracle they turn aside and say: Transient magic. (2) They have rejected it and have followed their own desires, but all matters will be settled (by God). (3) Surely there came to them narratives (of the ancient nations) that should suffice to deter (them from transgression), (4) but the warnings have proved to have no effect on them. (5) Therefore, turn away from them. On the Day when the Caller summons them to a terrible thing, (6) They will come forth, with humbled eyes from (their) graves as if they were locusts spread abroad, (7) They shall be hurrying forth towards the caller, and the unbelievers (who had once denied this Day), will say: “This is a woeful Day.” (8) ۞ The people of Noah cried lies before them; they cried lies to Our servant, and said, 'A man possessed!' And he was rejected. (9) And so he called unto his Lord, saying, 'I am vanquished; do Thou succour me!' (10) We therefore opened the gates of heaven, with water flowing furiously. (11) and caused the earth to gush with springs, so that the waters met for a predestined matter. (12) We carried him in a well built, watertight vessel made from planks (of wood) (13) She floats under our eyes (and care): a recompense to one who had been rejected (with scorn)! (14) And We left it for a sign. Is there any that will remember? (15) How was then My punishment and My commination! (16) And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition? (17) Aad too belied. How then were My punishment and My warnings! (18) Lo! We let loose on them a raging wind on a day of constant calamity, (19) Carrying men away as though they were trunks of palm-trees uprooted. (20) So how did My punishment turn out, and My warnings? (21) And We have indeed made the Quran easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)? (22)
