al-Qamar (The Moon)
as rendered by Sher Ali

Sher Ali rendition of Surah The Moon(al-Qamar)
---
54:1 The Hour has drawn nigh, and the moon is rent asunder.
54:2 And if they see a Sign, they turn away and say, `An oft-repeated sorcery.'
54:3 They have rejected the truth and follow their own fancies. But for everything there is an appointed time.
54:4 And there has already come to them accounts of events containing warnings -
54:5 Consummate wisdom; but the warnings profit them not.
54:6 Therefore, turn thou away from them and await the day when the Summoner will summon them to a disagreeable thing,
54:7 While their eyes will be cast down and they will come forth from their graves as though they were locust scattered about,
54:8 Hastening towards the Summoner. The disbelievers will say, `This is a hard day.'
54:9 The people of Noah rejected the truth before them; they called Our servant a liar and said, `He is a madman, afflicted by our idols.'
54:10 So he prayed to his Lord: `I am overcome, so come thou to my help !'
54:11 Thereupon WE opened the gates of heaven with water which fell in torrents;
54:12 And WE caused the earth to burst forth with springs, so the two waters met for a purpose that was decreed.
54:13 And WE carried him upon that which was made of planks and nails.
54:14 It floated on under Our eyes; a reward for him who had been denied.
54:15 And WE left it as a Sign for the succeeding generations. But is there anyone who would take heed?
54:16 How terrible, then, was MY punishment and how true MY warning !
54:17 And indeed, WE have made the Qur'an easy to remember. Is there anyone who would take heed?
54:18 The tribe of Ad rejected the truth. How terrible, then, was MY punishment and how true MY warning !
54:19 WE sent against them a furious wind on a day of unending ill-luck,
54:20 Tearing people away as though they were the hollow trunks of uprooted palm-trees.
54:21 How terrible, then, was MY punishment and how true MY warning !
54:22 And indeed, WE have made the Qur'an easy to remember. But is there anyone who would take heed?
54:23 The tribe of Thamud also rejected the Warners.
54:24 And they said, `What ! shall we follow a mortal, one out of ourselves? Then, indeed, we would be in manifest error, and suffering from madness.
54:25 `Has the Reminder been revealed to him alone of all of us? Nay, he is an impudent liar.'
54:26 Tomorrow will they know who is the impudent liar.
54:27 We will send the she-camel as a trial for them. So watch them, O Salih, and have patience.
54:28 `And tell them that the water is shared between her and them, every drinking time shall be attended.'
54:29 But they called their comrade and he seized a sword and hamstrung her.
54:30 How terrible, then, was MY punishment and how true MY warning !
54:31 WE sent against them a single blast, and they became like the dry stubble, whittled down by a maker of hedges.
54:32 And, indeed, WE have made the Qur'an easy to remember. But is there anyone who will take heed?
54:33 Lot's people also rejected the Warners.
54:34 WE sent a storm of stones upon them except the family of Lot, whom WE delivered by early dawn,
54:35 As a favour from US. Thus do WE reward him who is grateful.
54:36 And he, indeed, had warned them of Our severe punishment, but they doubted the warning.
54:37 And they deceitfully sought to turn him away from his guests. So WE blinded their eyes, and said, `Taste ye now MY punishment and MY warning.'
54:38 And there came upon them early in the morning a lasting punishment.
54:39 `Now taste ye MY punishment and MY warning.'
54:40 And, indeed, WE have made the Qur'an easy to remember. But is there anyone who will take heed?
54:41 And, surely, to the people of Pharaoh also came Warners.
54:42 They rejected all Our Signs. So WE seized them like the seizing of the Mighty, the Powerful.
54:43 Are your disbelievers better than those? Or, have you an immunity in the Scriptures?
54:44 Do they say, `We are a victorious host?'
54:45 The hosts shall soon be routed and shall turn their backs in flight.
54:46 Aye, the Hour is their promised time; and the Hour will be most calamitous for them and most bitter.
54:47 Surely, the guilty are in manifest error and suffer from madness.
54:48 On the day when they will be dragged into the Fire on their faces, it will be said to them, `Taste ye the touch of Hell.'
54:49 Verily, WE have created everything in due measure.
54:50 And Our command is carried out by only one Word as the twinkling of an eye.
54:51 And, indeed, WE have destroyed people like you before. But is there anyone who will take heed?
54:52 And everything they have done is recorded in the Books.
54:53 And every matter, small and great, is written down.
54:54 Verily, the righteous will be in the midst of Gardens and streams,
54:55 In an internal and honoured abode in the presence of the Omnipotent King.
