The Moon (Al-Qamar)
55 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Comet (Al-Taareq) before S (Saad)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
The Hour of Doom is drawing near and the moon is rent asunder. (1) Yet if they see a sign they turn away, and they say 'A continuous sorcery!' (2) And they denied and followed their own desires, whereas each matter has been decided! (3) And certainly some narratives have come to them wherein is prevention-- (4) far-reaching wisdom [was held out to them]: but [since] all warnings have been of no avail, (5) So turn (your) back on them (for) the day when the inviter shall invite them to a hard task, (6) abasing their eyes, they shall come forth from the tombs as if they were scattered grasshoppers, (7) running (with their necks extended) to the Caller. The unbelievers will say: 'This is indeed a harsh 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) Then he invoked his Lord (saying): "I have been overcome, so help (me)!" (10) Then opened We the gates of heaven with pouring water (11) and made the earth to gush with fountains, and the waters met for a matter decreed. (12) And We carried him upon a thing of planks and nails, (13) Moving forward under Our eyes: a requital for him who had been rejected. (14) And We left it as a sign so is there one who would ponder? (15) And how severe is the suffering which I inflict when My warnings are disregarded! (16) And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember? (17) Aad too belied. How then were My punishment and My warnings! (18) We indeed sent towards them a severe windstorm, on a day the ill luck of which lasted upon them forever. (19) plucking up men as if they were stumps of uprooted palm-trees. (20) So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! (21) We have made the Qur'an easy to derive lessons from. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (22)
