In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
The Hour of Resurrection drew near and the moon split asunder. ٱقْتَرَبَتِ ٱلسَّاعَةُ وَٱنشَقَّ ٱلْقَمَرُ۝۱
(Regardless of any Signs these people see), they turn away and say: “This is an ongoing sorcery.” وَإِن يَرَوْا۟ ءَايَةً يُعْرِضُوا۟ وَيَقُولُوا۟ سِحْرٌ مُّسْتَمِرٌّ ۝۲
They also gave the lie to (the splitting asunder of the moon) and only followed their desires. Yet everything is destined to reach an end. وَكَذَّبُوا۟ وَٱتَّبَعُوٓا۟ أَهْوَآءَهُمْ ۚ وَكُلُّ أَمْرٍ مُّسْتَقِرٌّ ۝۳
Surely there came to them narratives (of the ancient nations) that should suffice to deter (them from transgression), وَلَقَدْ جَآءَهُم مِّنَ ٱلْأَنۢبَآءِ مَا فِيهِ مُزْدَجَرٌ ۝۴
narratives that are full of consummate wisdom. But warnings do not avail them. حِكْمَةٌۢ بَٰلِغَةٌ ۖ فَمَا تُغْنِ ٱلنُّذُرُ ۝۵
So turn away from them, (O Prophet). On the Day when a caller shall call them to a thing most terrible, فَتَوَلَّ عَنْهُمْ ۘ يَوْمَ يَدْعُ ٱلدَّاعِ إِلَىٰ شَىْءٍ نُّكُرٍ ۝۶
with down-cast eyes they shall go forth from their graves, as though they were scattered locusts. خُشَّعًا أَبْصَٰرُهُمْ يَخْرُجُونَ مِنَ ٱلْأَجْدَاثِ كَأَنَّهُمْ جَرَادٌ مُّنتَشِرٌ ۝۷
They shall be hurrying forth towards the caller, and the unbelievers (who had once denied this Day), will say: “This is a woeful Day.” مُّهْطِعِينَ إِلَى ٱلدَّاعِ ۖ يَقُولُ ٱلْكَٰفِرُونَ هَٰذَا يَوْمٌ عَسِرٌ ۝۸
Before them Noah's people also gave the lie (to his Message). They rejected Our servant as a liar, saying: “He is a madman”; and he was rebuffed. كَذَّبَتْ قَبْلَهُمْ قَوْمُ نُوحٍ فَكَذَّبُوا۟ عَبْدَنَا وَقَالُوا۟ مَجْنُونٌ وَٱزْدُجِرَ ۝۹
Then he called upon His Lord: “Verily I am vanquished; so come You to my aid.” فَدَعَا رَبَّهُۥٓ أَنِّى مَغْلُوبٌ فَٱنتَصِرْ ۝۱۰
Thereupon We opened the gates of the sky for water to pour down, فَفَتَحْنَآ أَبْوَٰبَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ بِمَآءٍ مُّنْهَمِرٍ ۝۱۱
and We made the earth burst forth with springs, and all this water converged to fulfil that which had been decreed. وَفَجَّرْنَا ٱلْأَرْضَ عُيُونًا فَٱلْتَقَى ٱلْمَآءُ عَلَىٰٓ أَمْرٍ قَدْ قُدِرَ ۝۱۲
And We bore Noah on the vessel built of planks and nails, وَحَمَلْنَٰهُ عَلَىٰ ذَاتِ أَلْوَٰحٍ وَدُسُرٍ ۝۱۳
which sailed on under Our supervision: a reward for him who had been shown ingratitude. تَجْرِى بِأَعْيُنِنَا جَزَآءً لِّمَن كَانَ كُفِرَ ۝۱۴
And We left the Ark as a Sign. Is there, then, any who will take heed? وَلَقَد تَّرَكْنَٰهَآ ءَايَةً فَهَلْ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ ۝۱۵
So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! فَكَيْفَ كَانَ عَذَابِى وَنُذُرِ ۝۱۶
We have made this Qur'an easy as a reminder. Is there, then, any who will take heed? وَلَقَدْ يَسَّرْنَا ٱلْقُرْءَانَ لِلذِّكْرِ فَهَلْ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ ۝۱۷
'Ad also gave the lie (to Hud). So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! كَذَّبَتْ عَادٌ فَكَيْفَ كَانَ عَذَابِى وَنُذُرِ ۝۱۸
We sent a tumultuous wind against them on a day of unremitting misfortune, إِنَّآ أَرْسَلْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ رِيحًا صَرْصَرًا فِى يَوْمِ نَحْسٍ مُّسْتَمِرٍّ ۝۱۹
which tore people away and hurled them as though they were trunks of uprooted palm-trees. تَنزِعُ ٱلنَّاسَ كَأَنَّهُمْ أَعْجَازُ نَخْلٍ مُّنقَعِرٍ ۝۲۰
So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! فَكَيْفَ كَانَ عَذَابِى وَنُذُرِ ۝۲۱
We have made the Qur'an easy to derive lessons from. Is there, then, any who will take heed? وَلَقَدْ يَسَّرْنَا ٱلْقُرْءَانَ لِلذِّكْرِ فَهَلْ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ ۝۲۲
Thamud gave the lie to the warnings, كَذَّبَتْ ثَمُودُ بِٱلنُّذُرِ ۝۲۳
saying: “Are we to follow a single mortal, one from among ourselves? If we do that, we shall surely be in error and folly. فَقَالُوٓا۟ أَبَشَرًا مِّنَّا وَٰحِدًا نَّتَّبِعُهُۥٓ إِنَّآ إِذًا لَّفِى ضَلَٰلٍ وَسُعُرٍ ۝۲۴
Was there none but he to whom the Reminder could be vouchsafed excluding all others? Nay; he is an insolent liar.” أَءُلْقِىَ ٱلذِّكْرُ عَلَيْهِ مِنۢ بَيْنِنَا بَلْ هُوَ كَذَّابٌ أَشِرٌ ۝۲۵
(We told Our Messenger): “Tomorrow they shall know who is the insolent liar. سَيَعْلَمُونَ غَدًا مَّنِ ٱلْكَذَّابُ ٱلْأَشِرُ ۝۲۶
We shall send the she-camel as a trial for them; so watch their end with patience. إِنَّا مُرْسِلُوا۟ ٱلنَّاقَةِ فِتْنَةً لَّهُمْ فَٱرْتَقِبْهُمْ وَٱصْطَبِرْ ۝۲۷
Let them know that the water should be divided between them and the she-camel, each availing their turn.” وَنَبِّئْهُمْ أَنَّ ٱلْمَآءَ قِسْمَةٌۢ بَيْنَهُمْ ۖ كُلُّ شِرْبٍ مُّحْتَضَرٌ ۝۲۸
Eventually, they summoned their companion, and he undertook the (outrageous) task and hamstrung the she-camel. فَنَادَوْا۟ صَاحِبَهُمْ فَتَعَاطَىٰ فَعَقَرَ ۝۲۹
So how awesome were My chastisement and My warnings! فَكَيْفَ كَانَ عَذَابِى وَنُذُرِ ۝۳۰
Behold, We sent a single Blast against them, and they became like the trampled twigs of a sheep pen-builder. إِنَّآ أَرْسَلْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ صَيْحَةً وَٰحِدَةً فَكَانُوا۟ كَهَشِيمِ ٱلْمُحْتَظِرِ ۝۳۱
Surely We have made this Qur'an easy as a reminder. Is there, then, any who will take heed? وَلَقَدْ يَسَّرْنَا ٱلْقُرْءَانَ لِلذِّكْرِ فَهَلْ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ ۝۳۲
Lot's people also gave the lie to the warnings, كَذَّبَتْ قَوْمُ لُوطٍۭ بِٱلنُّذُرِ ۝۳۳
and behold, We let loose upon them a tempest which rained stones upon them, except upon Lot's household whom We rescued in the last hours of the night إِنَّآ أَرْسَلْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ حَاصِبًا إِلَّآ ءَالَ لُوطٍ ۖ نَّجَّيْنَٰهُم بِسَحَرٍ ۝۳۴
as a favour from Us. Thus do We reward those who give thanks. نِّعْمَةً مِّنْ عِندِنَا ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ نَجْزِى مَن شَكَرَ ۝۳۵
Surely Lot warned his people that We shall seize them (with Our chastisement), but they doubted the warnings. وَلَقَدْ أَنذَرَهُم بَطْشَتَنَا فَتَمَارَوْا۟ بِٱلنُّذُرِ ۝۳۶
Then they even solicited his guests from him, whereupon We blotted out their eyes, (telling them): “Now have a taste of My chastisement and My warnings.” وَلَقَدْ رَٰوَدُوهُ عَن ضَيْفِهِۦ فَطَمَسْنَآ أَعْيُنَهُمْ فَذُوقُوا۟ عَذَابِى وَنُذُرِ ۝۳۷
Indeed an abiding chastisement came upon them in the morning. وَلَقَدْ صَبَّحَهُم بُكْرَةً عَذَابٌ مُّسْتَقِرٌّ ۝۳۸
So have a taste of My chastisement and My warnings. فَذُوقُوا۟ عَذَابِى وَنُذُرِ ۝۳۹
Surely We have made this Qur'an easy as a reminder. Is there, then, any who will take heed? وَلَقَدْ يَسَّرْنَا ٱلْقُرْءَانَ لِلذِّكْرِ فَهَلْ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ ۝۴۰
Warnings also came to the Pharaonites, وَلَقَدْ جَآءَ ءَالَ فِرْعَوْنَ ٱلنُّذُرُ ۝۴۱
but they gave the lie to Our Signs, to all of them. Thereupon We seized them with the seizing of the Most Mighty, the Most Powerful. كَذَّبُوا۟ بِـَٔايَٰتِنَا كُلِّهَا فَأَخَذْنَٰهُمْ أَخْذَ عَزِيزٍ مُّقْتَدِرٍ ۝۴۲
Are your unbelievers (of Makkah) any better than they? Or have you been granted any immunity in the Scriptures? أَكُفَّارُكُمْ خَيْرٌ مِّنْ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكُمْ أَمْ لَكُم بَرَآءَةٌ فِى ٱلزُّبُرِ ۝۴۳
Or do they say: “We are a strong legion, strong enough for victory?” أَمْ يَقُولُونَ نَحْنُ جَمِيعٌ مُّنتَصِرٌ ۝۴۴
Soon shall this legion be routed and shall turn their backs and flee. سَيُهْزَمُ ٱلْجَمْعُ وَيُوَلُّونَ ٱلدُّبُرَ ۝۴۵
Nay; the Hour of Doom is their appointed time, and the Hour shall be more calamitous and bitter. بَلِ ٱلسَّاعَةُ مَوْعِدُهُمْ وَٱلسَّاعَةُ أَدْهَىٰ وَأَمَرُّ ۝۴۶
The evil-doers are victims of error and madness. إِنَّ ٱلْمُجْرِمِينَ فِى ضَلَٰلٍ وَسُعُرٍ ۝۴۷
There shall come a Day when they will be dragged on their faces into the Fire and will be told: “Now taste the flame of Hell.” يَوْمَ يُسْحَبُونَ فِى ٱلنَّارِ عَلَىٰ وُجُوهِهِمْ ذُوقُوا۟ مَسَّ سَقَرَ ۝۴۸
We have created everything in a determined measure. إِنَّا كُلَّ شَىْءٍ خَلَقْنَٰهُ بِقَدَرٍ ۝۴۹
Our command consists of only one Word which is carried out in the twinkling of an eye. وَمَآ أَمْرُنَآ إِلَّا وَٰحِدَةٌ كَلَمْحٍۭ بِٱلْبَصَرِ ۝۵۰
We did indeed destroy many like you. Is there, then, any who will heed? وَلَقَدْ أَهْلَكْنَآ أَشْيَاعَكُمْ فَهَلْ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ ۝۵۱
All their deeds are recorded in the Scrolls; وَكُلُّ شَىْءٍ فَعَلُوهُ فِى ٱلزُّبُرِ ۝۵۲
everything large or small, is duly inscribed. وَكُلُّ صَغِيرٍ وَكَبِيرٍ مُّسْتَطَرٌ ۝۵۳
Surely those who shun disobedience will dwell amidst Gardens and running streams إِنَّ ٱلْمُتَّقِينَ فِى جَنَّٰتٍ وَنَهَرٍ ۝۵۴
where they will be honourably seated in the presence of a King, Mighty in Power. فِى مَقْعَدِ صِدْقٍ عِندَ مَلِيكٍ مُّقْتَدِرٍۭ ۝۵۵
