#54. Qamar *SURAH*



In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful




1. The hour (of Judgment) is nigh and the moon is cleft asunder

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

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

4. There have already come to them Recitals wherein there is
(enough) to check (them)

5. Mature wisdom but (the preaching of) Warners profits them not

6. Therefore (O Prophet) turn away from them. The day that the
Caller willcall (them) to a terrible affair

7. They will come forth their eyes humbled from (their) graves
(torpid) like locusts scattered abroad

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

18. The `Ad (people) (too) rejected (Truth): then how terrible
was my Penalty and my Warning!

19. For We sent against them a furious wind on a Day of violent
Disaster

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

21. Yea how (terrible) was my Penalty and my Warning!

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

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

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!

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

26. Ah! they will know on the morrow which is the liar the
insolent one!

27. For We will send the she camel by way of trial for them. So
watch them (o Saleh) and possess thyself in patience!

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)

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

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

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

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

33. The People of Lut rejected (his) Warning

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

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

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

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."

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

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

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

41. To the people of Pharaoh too aforetime came Warners (from
Allah)

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

43. Are your Unbelievers (O Quraish) better than they? or have ye
an immunity in the Sacred Books?

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

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

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

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

48. The day they will be dragged through the Fire on their faces
(they will hear:) "Tastes ye the touch of Hell!"

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

50. And Our command is but a single (Act) like the twinkling of
an eye

51. And (oft) in the past have We destroyed gangs like unto you:
Then is there! any that will receive admonition?":

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

53. Every matter small and great is on record

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

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