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 drew nigh and the moon was rent in twain. (1) But if they [who reject all thought of the Last Hour] were to see a sign [of its approach,] they would turn aside and say: "An ever-recurring delusion!" (2) for they are bent on giving it the lie, being always wont to follow their own desires. Yet everything reveals its truth in the end. (3) And indeed there has come to them news (in this Quran) wherein there is (enough warning) to check (them from evil), (4) Effective wisdom; but warnings avail not. (5) Wherefore withdrew thou from them. The Day whereon the summoner will summon mankind unto a thing unpleasant. (6) they will come out of their graves, their eyes cast down, hastening towards their Summoner as locusts rushing about. (7) running (with their necks extended) to the Caller. The unbelievers will say: 'This is indeed a harsh Day' (8) ۞ Before them the People of Noah rejected (their messenger): they rejected Our servant, and said, "Here is one possessed!", and he was driven out. (9) So he prayed to his Lord: "I am helpless, deliver me." (10) Then opened We the gates of heaven with pouring water (11) We caused the earth to burst forth with springs so that the waters could come together for a predestined purpose. (12) But We bore him on a (vessel made) of planks and oakum, (13) Sailing under Our observation as reward for he who had been denied. (14) And We left the Ark as a Sign. Is there, then, any who will take heed? (15) How then were My punishment and My warnings! (16) And in truth We have made the Qur'an easy to remember; but is there any that remembereth? (17) And there belied the A'ad; so how dreadful have been My torment and warning! (18) Verily We! We sent against them a raging wind on a day of calamity continuous. (19) and snatched people up as though they were stumps of uprooted palmtrees. (20) So how did My punishment turn out, 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)
