054 : The Moon

54:1
The Hour (of Judgment) is nigh, and the moon is cleft asunder.

54:2
But if they see a Sign, they turn away, and say, "This is (but) transient magic."

54:3
They reject (the warning) and follow their (own) lusts but every matter has its appointed time.

54:4
There have already come to them Recitals wherein there is (enough) to check (them),

54:5
Mature wisdom;- but (the preaching of) Warners profits them not.

54:6
Therefore, (O Prophet,) turn away from them. The Day that the Caller will call (them) to a terrible affair,

54:7
They will come forth,- their eyes humbled - from (their) graves, (torpid) like locusts scattered abroad,

54:8
Hastening, with eyes transfixed, towards the Caller!- "Hard is this Day!", the Unbelievers will say.

54:9
Before them the People of Noah rejected (their messenger): they rejected Our servant, and said, "Here is one possessed!", and he was driven out.

54:10
Then he called on his Lord: "I am one overcome: do Thou then help (me)!"

54:11
So We opened the gates of heaven, with water pouring forth.

54:12
And We caused the earth to gush forth with springs, so the waters met (and rose) to the extent decreed.

54:13
But We bore him on an (Ark) made of broad planks and caulked with palm-fibre:

54:14
She floats under our eyes (and care): a recompense to one who had been rejected (with scorn)!

54:15
And We have left this as a Sign (for all time): then is there any that will receive admonition?

54:16
But how (terrible) was My Penalty and My Warning?

54:17
And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition?

54:18
The 'Ad (people) (too) rejected (Truth): then how terrible was My Penalty and My Warning?

54:19
For We sent against them a furious wind, on a Day of violent Disaster,

54:20
Plucking out men as if they were roots of palm-trees torn up (from the ground).

54:21
Yea, how (terrible) was My Penalty and My Warning!

54:22
But We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition?

54:23
The Thamud (also) rejected (their) Warners.

54:24
For they said: "What! a man! a Solitary one from among ourselves! shall we follow such a one? Truly should we then be straying in mind, and mad!

54:25
"Is it that the Message is sent to him, of all people amongst us? Nay, he is a liar, an insolent one!"

54:26
Ah! they will know on the morrow, which is the liar, the insolent one!

54:27
For We will send the she-camel by way of trial for them. So watch them, (O Salih), and possess thyself in patience!

54:28
And tell them that the water is to be divided between them: Each one's right to drink being brought forward (by suitable turns).

54:29
But they called to their companion, and he took a sword in hand, and hamstrung (her).

54:30
Ah! how (terrible) was My Penalty and My Warning!

54:31
For We sent against them a single Mighty Blast, and they became like the dry stubble used by one who pens cattle.

54:32
And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition?

54:33
The people of Lut rejected (his) warning.

54:34
We sent against them a violent Tornado with showers of stones, (which destroyed them), except Lut's household: them We delivered by early Dawn,-

54:35
As a Grace from Us: thus do We reward those who give thanks.

54:36
And (Lut) did warn them of Our Punishment, but they disputed about the Warning.

54:37
And they even sought to snatch away his guests from him, but We blinded their eyes. (They heard:) "Now taste ye My Wrath and My Warning."

54:38
Early on the morrow an abiding Punishment seized them:

54:39
"So taste ye My Wrath and My Warning."

54:40
And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition?

54:41
To the People of Pharaoh, too, aforetime, came Warners (from Allah).

54:42
The (people) rejected all Our Signs; but We seized them with such Penalty (as comes) from One Exalted in Power, able to carry out His Will.

54:43
Are your Unbelievers, (O Quraish), better than they? Or have ye an immunity in the Sacred Books?

54:44
Or do they say: "We acting together can defend ourselves"?

54:45
Soon will their multitude be put to flight, and they will show their backs.

54:46
Nay, the Hour (of Judgment) is the time promised them (for their full recompense): And that Hour will be most grievous and most bitter.

54:47
Truly those in sin are the ones straying in mind, and mad.

54:48
The Day they will be dragged through the Fire on their faces, (they will hear:) "Taste ye the touch of Hell!"

54:49
Verily, all things have We created in proportion and measure.

54:50
And Our Command is but a single (Act),- like the twinkling of an eye.

54:51
And (oft) in the past, have We destroyed gangs like unto you: then is there any that will receive admonition?

54:52
All that they do is noted in (their) Books (of Deeds):

54:53
Every matter, small and great, is on record.

54:54
As to the Righteous, they will be in the midst of Gardens and Rivers,

54:55
In an Assembly of Truth, in the Presence of a Sovereign Omnipotent.
