al-Qamar (The Moon)
as rendered by Muhammad Mahmoud Ghali

Muhammad Mahmoud Ghali rendition of Surah The Moon(al-Qamar)
---
54:1 The Hour (The Arabic noun is feminine) has drawn near, and the moon (The Arabic noun is masculine) is cloven.
54:2 And in case they see a sign, they veer away and say, "A continuous sorcery!"
54:3 And they have cried lies and closely followed their prejudices; and every Command is settled.
54:4 And indeed there have already come to them such tidings wherein there is a scaring.
54:5 A consummate Wisdom; yet in no way do warnings avail.
54:6 So turn away from them. On the Day when the Caller will call to a highly maleficent thing,
54:7 With most submissive be holdings, they will go out of the graves as if they were locusts spread abroad,
54:8 With their heads protruding, (hurrying) to the Caller. The disbelievers will say, "This is a difficult Day!"
54:9 The people of Nuh (Noah) cried lies before them; so they cried lies to Our bondman and said, "A madman, " and he was scared.
54:10 So, he invoked his Lord, (saying), "I am overcome, so vindicate me!"
54:11 Then We opened the gates of the heaven to torrential water,
54:12 And We made the earth to erupt forth springs, so the waters met for a Command already estimated.
54:13 And We carried him upon (an Ark), well planked and well caulked, (Literally: comprising planks and caulks, with nails)
54:14 Running under Our Eyes, a recompense for him who was disbelieved. (i.e., between the she-camel and them)
54:15 And indeed We have already left it for a sign. Is there then any that will recollect?
54:16 How then were My torment and My warnings?
54:17 And indeed We have already made the Qur'an easy for remembrance. Is there then any that will recollect?
54:18 Aad cried lies. How then were My torment and My warnings?
54:19 Surely We sent against them a most clamorous wind in a day of ill-luck, continuous,
54:20 Plucking up mankind as if they were the stumps of uprooted palm-trees.
54:21 How then were My torment and My warnings?
54:22 And indeed We have already made the Qur'an easy for remembrance. Is there then any that will recollect?
54:23 Thamud cried lies to the warnings.
54:24 So they said, "Should we closely follow a mortal, one out of ourselves? Lo, surely we are indeed in error and insanity!
54:25 Has the Remembrance been cast upon him (alone) from among us? No indeed, (but) he is an insolent liar."
54:26 They will (soon) know tomorrow who is the insolent liar.
54:27 Surely We are sending the she-camel as a temptation for them; so be on the watch for them and constantly (endure) patiently.
54:28 And fully inform them that the water is to a (fair) division between them; (i.e., between the she-camel and them) each drinking is for each presented in turn.
54:29 Then they called out their companion, so he took upon himself (the task); then he hamstrung her.
54:30 How then were My torment and My warnings?
54:31 Surely We sent against them one Shout; so they were as the chaff of a pen-builder.
54:32 And indeed We have already made the Qur'an easy for remembrance. Is there then any that will recollect?
54:33 The people of Lut (Lot) cried lies to the warnings.
54:34 Surely We sent against them a (squall of) gravel, except the house of Lut; (LOt) We safely delivered them before dawn,
54:35 A favor from Our Providence; thus We recompense him who thanks (Us).
54:36 And indeed he had warned them of Our assault, yet they wrangled about the warnings.
54:37 And indeed they already solicited of him his guests, so We obliterated their eyes, (saying), "So taste My torment and My warnings!"
54:38 And indeed there already came upon them before sunrise a settled torment;
54:39 "So taste My torment and My warnings!"
54:40 And indeed We have already made the Qur'an easy for remembrance. Is there then any that will recollect?
54:41 And indeed the warnings already came (also) to the house of Firaawn; (Pharaoh)
54:42 They cried lies to Our signs, all of them, so We took them (away) with the taking of an Ever-Mighty, Supreme Determiner.
54:43 Are your steadfast disbelievers more charitable (3) than those ones? Or even do you have an acquittal (from torment) in the Zubur? (i.e., better)
54:44 Or do they say, "We, all together, will vindicate ourselves."
54:45 Soon the gathering will be routed and (they) will turn their backs.
54:46 No indeed, (but) the Hour is their appointment, and the Hour is more calamitous and more bitter.
54:47 Surely the criminals are in error and insanity!
54:48 The Day (when) they are pulled into the Fire on their faces, (It will be said), "Taste (now) the touch of Saqar!" (The Scorching Fire)
54:49 Surely We created everything by a determined estimate.
54:50 And in no way is Our Command anything except one (Word), as the twinkling of the eye. (Literally: the power of beholding)
54:51 And indeed We have already caused your sects to perish; is there then any that will recollect?
54:52 And everything they have performed is in the Zubur. (Scriptures)
54:53 And every small and great thing is judiciously inscribed.
54:54 Surely the pious will (dwell) among Gardens and Rivers,
54:55 In (secure) seat (s) of Sincerity, in the Providence of a Supreme Determiner, an Ever-Pervading King.
