al-Qamar (The Moon)
as rendered by Maulana Muhammad Ali

Maulana Muhammad Ali rendition of Surah The Moon(al-Qamar)
---
54:1 Wonder you then at this announcement?
54:2 And do you laugh and not weep,
54:3 While you sport?
54:4 So bow down in prostration before Allah and serve (Him).
54:5 The hour drew nigh and the moon was rent asunder.
54:6 And if they see a sign, they turn away and say: Strong enchantment!
54:7 And they deny and follow their low desires; and every affair is settled.
54:8 And certainly narratives have come to them, which should deter --
54:9 Consummate wisdom -- but warnings avail not;
54:10 So turn away from them. On the day when the Inviter invites them to a hard task --
54:11 Their eyes cast down, they will go forth from their graves as if they were scattered locusts,
54:12 Hastening to the Inviter. The disbelievers will say: This is a hard day!
54:13 Before them the people of Noah rejected -- they rejected Our servant and called (him) mad, and he was driven away.
54:14 So he called upon his Lord: I am overcome, so do Thou help.
54:15 Then We opened the gates of heaven with water pouring down.
54:16 And made water to flow forth in the land in springs, so the water gathered together according to a measure already ordained.
54:17 And We bore him on that which was made of planks and nails,
54:18 Floating on, before Our eyes -- a reward for him who was denied.
54:19 And certainly We left it as a sign, but is there any that will mind?
54:20 How terrible was then My chastisement and My warning!
54:21 And certainly We have made the Qur’an easy to remember, but is there any one who will mind?
54:22 ‘Ad denied, so how terrible was My chastisement and My warning!
54:23 Surely We sent on them a furious wind in a day of bitter ill-luck,
54:24 Tearing men away as if they were the trunks of palm-trees torn up.
54:25 How terrible was then My chastisement and My warning!
54:26 And certainly We have made the Qur’an easy to remember, but is there any one who will mind?
54:27 Thamud rejected the warning.
54:28 To-morrow they will know who is the liar, the insolent one.
54:29 Surely We are going to send the she-camel as a trial for them; so watch them and have patience.
54:30 And inform them that the water is shared between them; every share of the water shall be attended.
54:31 But they called their companion, so he took (a sword) and hamstrung (her).
54:32 How (terrible) was then My chastisement and My warning!
54:33 Surely We sent upon them a single cry, so they were like the dry fragments of trees, which the maker of an enclosure collects.
54:34 And certainly We have made the Qur’an easy to remember, but is there any one who will mind?
54:35 The people of Lot treated the warning as a lie.
54:36 Surely We sent upon them a stone-storm, except Lot’s followers; We saved them a little before daybreak --
54:37 A favour from Us. Thus do We reward him who gives thanks.
54:38 And certainly he warned them of Our violent seizure, but they disputed the warning.
54:39 And certainly they endeavoured to turn him from his guests, but We blinded their eyes; so taste My chastisement and My warning.
54:40 And certainly a lasting chastisement overtook them in the morning.
54:41 So taste My chastisement and My warning.
54:42 And certainly We have made the Qur’an easy to remember, but is there any one who will mind?
54:43 And certainly the warning came to Pharaoh’s people.
54:44 They rejected all Our signs, so We overtook them with the seizing of the Mighty, the Powerful.
54:45 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny?
54:46 Are your disbelievers better than these, or have you an immunity in the scriptures?
54:47 Nay, the Hour is their promised time, and the Hour is most grievous and bitter.
54:48 Surely the guilty are in error and distress.
54:49 On the day when they are dragged into the Fire upon their faces: Taste the touch of hell.
54:50 Surely We have created everything according to a measure.
54:51 And Our command is but once, as the twinkling of an eye.
54:52 And certainly We destroyed your fellows, but is there any one who will mind?
54:53 And everything they do is in the writings.
54:54 And everything small and great is written down.
54:55 Surely the dutiful will be among Gardens and rivers,
