al-Qamar (The Moon)
as rendered by Wahiduddin Khan

Wahiduddin Khan rendition of Surah The Moon(al-Qamar)
---
54:1 The Last Hour draws near and
54:2 They deny the truth and follow the moon is split asunder.
54:3 Yet, their own whimsevery matter when they see a sign they [who has its appointed time
54:4 there deny the truth] turn their backs has come to them many a tiding and say, The same old sorcery! wherein there are warnings,
54:5 profound in wisdom, but all warnings have been of no avail:
54:6 so ignore them. On the Day when the Crier will call out about a horrible event,
54:7 with downcast eyes they shall come out of their graves, as if they were locusts milling about
54:8 hastening towards the Crier. Those who deny the truth will cry, This is such a hard day!
54:9 The people of Noah denied [the truth] before them. They belied Our messenger saying, He is mad! He was rebuffed,
54:10 so he cried out to his Lord, saying, I am overcome, so help me!
54:11 So We opened the gates of the sky with water pouring down in torrents,
54:12 and We caused the earth to burst with gushing springs: so that the waters met for a purpose which had been decreed.
54:13 We bore him on an [ark] which, made of planks and nails,
54:14 floated on under Our eyes: a vindication of him who had been rejected.
54:15 We have left this as a sign: but will anyone take heed?
54:16 How terrible then was My punishment and My warning.
54:17 We have made it easy to learn lessons from the Quran. Is there anyone who would receive admonition?
54:18 The people of Ad too rejected the truth. How terrible was My punishment and My warning.
54:19 We sent a raging wind against them on a day of continuous calamity.
54:20 It swept people away as if they were trunks of uprooted palm trees.
54:21 How [dreadful] was My punishment and My warning!
54:22 We have made it easy to learn lessons from the Quran: is there anyone who would receive admonition?
54:23 The tribe of Thamud also rejected Our warnings:
54:24 they said, Are we to follow a man from amongst ourselves? We would surely then fall into error and madness.
54:25 Has the [Divine] message been revealed to him alone of all of us? No, he is a boastful liar.
54:26 [We said to him] Tomorrow they shall know who is the boastful liar,
54:27 for We are [going to] send the she-camel as a trial for them, so watch them and be patient.
54:28 And tell them that the water [of the well] is to be divided between them, and that each one should drink in turn.
54:29 But they called their companion who took a sword and hamstrung her.
54:30 How [terrible] were My punishment and My warnings!
54:31 Then We sent a single blast against them and they became like dry stubble which has been trampled upon.
54:32 Indeed, We have made the Quran easy to learn lessons from. Is there anyone who would receive admonition?
54:33 The people of Lot rejected Our warnings.
54:34 We sent a sandstorm against them which destroyed them all, except the family of Lot, whom We saved at the break of dawn,
54:35 as a blessing from Us: this is how We reward the thankful.
54:36 Lot warned them of Our punishment, but they disputed the warnings
54:37 they even wanted to seduce his guestsbut We blinded them, and said, Taste My punishment now that you have scorned My warnings!
54:38 and early in the morning the punishment decreed overtook them
54:39 Taste My punishment now that you have scorned My warnings!
54:40 We have made it easy indeed to learn lessons from the Quran. Is there anyone who would receive admonition?
54:41 Surely warners came to the people of Pharaoh.
54:42 They, too, rejected all Our signs. So We seized them with the seizure of One Mighty, Omnipotent.
54:43 Are your people who deny the truth better than those? Or have you been given immunity in the Scriptures?
54:44 Or do they say, We are a united group, and we are bound to prevail?
54:45 The hosts shall soon be routed and they shall be put to flight.
54:46 Indeed, the Hour of Doom is their appointed time, and the Last Hour will be the most severe, and the most bitter.
54:47 The evildoers are indeed sunk in error and folly
54:48 on the Day when they are dragged into the fire on their faces, it will be said to them, Now feel the touch of Hell!
54:49 We have created everything in due measure;
54:50 We command but once: Our will is done in the twinkling of an eye;
54:51 We have indeed destroyed many a people like you. Is there anyone who would receive admonition?
54:52 All their deeds are recorded in their books:
54:53 every action, small or great, is noted down.
54:54 The God-conscious will find themselves in gardens and rivers,
54:55 in the seat of truth with an all-powerful sovereign.
