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 (of Judgment) is nigh, and the moon is cleft asunder. (1) And if they behold a portent they turn away and say: Prolonged illusion. (2) They deny the truth and follow their own whims, every matter has its appointed time, (3) There have already come to them Recitals wherein there is (enough) to check (them), (4) Perfect wisdom (this Quran), but (the preaching of) warners benefit them not, (5) so ignore them. On the Day when the Crier will call out about a horrible event, (6) They will come forth,- their eyes humbled - from (their) graves, (torpid) like locusts scattered abroad, (7) They will hasten forward to the caller, gazes fixed. And the unbelievers will say: "This is the day of untold woe." (8) ۞ Before these, the people of Nooh denied and they belied Our bondman and said, “He is a madman” and rebuffed him. (9) And so he called unto his Lord, saying, 'I am vanquished; do Thou succour me!' (10) And We opened up the flood 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) And We carried him upon a thing of planks and nails, (13) floated on under Our eyes: a vindication of him who had been rejected. (14) And certainly We left it as a sign, but is there anyone who (15) So how dreadful have been My torment and My warning! (16) And in truth We have made the Qur'an easy to remember; but is there any that remembereth? (17) TO THE TRUTH gave the lie [the tribe of] Ad: and how severe was the suffering which I inflicted when My warnings were disregarded! (18) Indeed, We sent upon them a screaming wind on a day of continuous misfortune, (19) which tore people away and hurled them as though they were trunks of uprooted palm-trees. (20) And how [severe] were My punishment and warning. (21) We have made it easy to learn lessons from the Quran: is there anyone who would receive admonition? (22)
