al-Qamar (The Moon)
as rendered by Mohammad Shafi

Mohammad Shafi rendition of Surah The Moon(al-Qamar)
---
54:1 The Hour (the time when the present world will end and the Hereafter begin) has drawn near and the moon is visited.
54:2 And if they see a sign they turn away and say, "Another delusion!"
54:3 And they speak lies and follow their own desires. And every matter does come to a settlement.
54:4 And surely there has come to them some of the news containing lessons
54:5 In mature wisdom; but warnings avail not!
54:6 So turn away from them on the Day when the Summoner summons to a thing forbidding.
54:7 With downcast eyes, they come out of the graves as though they were locusts dispersed,
54:8 Hurrying on toward the Summoner, the suppressors of Truth say, "This is a hard day."
54:9 Before them, Noah's people had denied! They denied Our devotee and said he was a mad man! And thus rebuffed was he!
54:10 Then he prayed to his Lord, "I am defeated, so help me!"
54:11 We then opened gates of the sky with pouring water
54:12 And We caused springs in the earth to gush forth, so that the waters met for a predestined purpose.
54:13 And We carried him [Noah] upon something [Ark made] of planks and nails
54:14 That sailed under Our observation, in compensation for one [Noah] who was rejected.
54:15 And We did leave it [Ark] behind as a Sign for posterity; but is there any to take heed?
54:16 And see how My punishment was — and My warnings!
54:17 And We have certainly made the Qur'aan easy for cultivating Firm Faith in and Remembrance of Me; but is there any to take heed?
54:18 (The anscient tribe of) AAad rejected [divine guidance]. How then was My punishment and My warnings!
54:19 We did indeed send upon them a furiously blowing wind on a day of constant calamity,
54:20 It [wind] swept away men as though they were trunks of uprooted palm-trees.
54:21 How then was My punishment and My warnings!
54:22 And We have certainly made the Qur'aan easy for cultivating Firm Faith in and Remembrance of Me; but is there any to take heed?
54:23 (The ancient tribe of) Thamood rejected warnings.
54:24 They said, "Is it an individual man, amongst us all, that we should follow? Then we are indeed into error and madness."
54:25 Is the Zikr [divine revelation] bestowed only upon him, amongst us all? Nay, but he is an insolent liar.
54:26 To-morrow they shall know who the insolent liar is!
54:27 We are indeed sending the she-camel by way of a test for them. Just watch them and have patience!
54:28 And tell them that the water is to be shared among them; every drink to be accounted for!
54:29 But then they prevailed upon one of their companions to take hold of and hamstrung (her).
54:30 How then was My punishment and My warnings!
54:31 We sent upon them just one loud, piercing sound, and they became as the dry twigs used by the builder of a cattle-fold.
54:32 And We have certainly made the Qur'aan easy for cultivating Firm Faith in and Remembrance of Me; but is there any to take heed?
54:33 Lot's people rejected warnings.
54:34 We did indeed send a violent storm upon them all save the family of Lot, whom We saved in the wee hours before dawn
54:35 As favour from Us. Thus do We reward a grateful one..
54:36 And he did warn them of Our Grip, but they had doubts on the veracity of the warnings!
54:37 And they did try to seduce him about his guests. So We blinded their eyes, "Taste now My punishment and My warnings!"
54:38 And the punishment decreed did befall them early in the morning.
54:39 "Taste then My punishment and My warnings!"
54:40 And We have certainly made the Qur'aan easy for cultivating Firm Faith in and Remembrance of Me; but is there any to take heed?
54:41 And warnings did come to the house of Pharao
54:42 They denied all Our Signs. Therefore We gripped them with a mighty, powerful Grip.
54:43 Are your Truth-suppressors better than those [mentioned above], or have you some immunity [decreed for them] in the Scriptures?
54:44 Or do they claim they are a united front?
54:45 The front will soon be routed and put to flight.
54:46 Moreover, the Hour (the time when the present world will end and the Hereafter begin) is their tryst with destiny, and the Hour shall be more grievous and bitter.
54:47 The sinners are indeed into error and madness.
54:48 The Day they are dragged into the Fire upon their faces to taste the feel of Hell!
54:49 We have indeed created every thing to a measure.
54:50 And Our Command is just one! Like the twinkling of an eye!
54:51 And We did destroy the likes of you; but is there any to take heed?
54:52 And every thing they did is in the Records!
54:53 And everything, small and big, is duly recorded.
54:54 The pious indeed will be among gardens and rivers
54:55 Seated in honour near the Most Powerful King.
