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

Ahmed Ali rendition of Surah The Moon(al-Qamar)
---
54:1 THE HOUR HAS come and split is the moon.
54:2 But if they see a sign they turn away, and say: "This is the same old lie continuing,"
54:3 And deny, and follow their own vain desires; but every matter is determined at its time.
54:4 Messages deterring them from evil had come to them,
54:5 Containing consummate wisdom; yet warnings were of no avail.
54:6 So turn away from them. When on the Day the crier calls to the painful business,
54:7 They will come out of the graves with downcast eyes like an expanding swarm of locusts.
54:8 They will hasten forward to the caller, gazes fixed. And the unbelievers will say: "This is the day of untold woe."
54:9 The people of Noah had denied before them, and had called Our votary a liar, and said: "He is possessed," and repulsed him.
54:10 So he prayed to his Lord: "I am helpless, deliver me."
54:11 And We opened up the flood gates of the sky with water pouring down in torrents,
54:12 And We opened up the springs of the earth; and the waters met for a decreed end.
54:13 But We bore him on a (vessel made) of planks and oakum,
54:14 Which sailed right under Our eyes: A recompense for him who had been denied.
54:15 And We left it as a sign. Is there anyone who will be warned?
54:16 How was then My punishment and My commination!
54:17 Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will be warned?
54:18 The 'Ad had also disavowed. How was then My punishment and My commination!
54:19 We let loose against them a violent roaring wind on a day of ill omen, continuous,
54:20 Which snatched away men as though they were palm trees pulled out by the roots.
54:21 How was then My punishment and My commination!
54:22 Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will pay heed?
54:23 The Thamud rejected the warnings,
54:24 And said: "Should we follow only one man among us? In that case we shall he in error and insane.
54:25 Was he the one of all of us to have been given the exposition? He is surely an impudent liar."
54:26 "Tomorrow they will know who is the impudent liar!
54:27 We shall send the she-camel to try them. So watch them, and be constant.
54:28 Tell them that the water is to be apportioned between them (and her); and every turn of drinking will be fixed (for each)."
54:29 But they called their commander, who seized and hamstrung her.
54:30 How was then My punishment of which they had been warned?
54:31 We sent a single blast against them, and they were reduced to husks of a decayed fence.
54:32 Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will be warned?
54:33 The people of Lot rejected the warnings.
54:34 We sent a stone-hurtling storm against them, except the family of Lot whom We saved in the early hours of the morning
54:35 As a favour from Us. That is how We reward the grateful.
54:36 He had warned them of Our might, but they passed over the warnings.
54:37 They lusted after his guests, so We put out their eyes (and said): "Taste My punishment and My commination."
54:38 And early in the morning the decreed punishment came upon them.
54:39 So now taste My punishment and My commination!
54:40 Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will be warned?
54:41 The warnings came to the people of Pharaoh.
54:42 They rejected each one of Our signs. So We seized them with the grip of one mighty and powerful.
54:43 Are the unbelievers among you any better than they? Or is there immunity for you in the Scriptures?
54:44 Or do they say: "We are a well-accoutred army?"
54:45 The army will be routed and put to flight.
54:46 Surely the Hour will be the moment of their promise, and that moment will be calamitous and distressing.
54:47 Surely the sinners are misguided and insane.
54:48 On that Day they will be dragged into the fire faces foremost, (and told:) "Taste the feel of Hell."
54:49 We have indeed created all things by measure;
54:50 And Our command is but one (word) swift as the winking of an eye.
54:51 We have destroyed the likes of you in the past: So is there any one who will be warned?
54:52 All things they do are (recorded) in the books;
54:53 All things small or great have been written down.
54:54 Surely those who fear God and follow the straight path will be amidst gardens and light,
54:55 At the still centre in the proximity of the King all-powerful.
