al-Qamar (The Moon)
as rendered by Ali Quli Qara'i

Ali Quli Qara'i rendition of Surah The Moon(al-Qamar)
---
54:1 The Hour has drawn near and the moon is split.
54:2 If they see a sign, they turn away, and say, ‘An incessant magic!’
54:3 They denied, and followed their own desires, and every matter has a setting [appropriate to it].
54:4 There have already come to them reports containing admonishment,
54:5 [and representing] far-reaching wisdom; but warnings are of no avail!
54:6 So turn away from them! The day when the Caller calls to a dire thing,
54:7 with a humbled look [in their eyes], they will emerge from the graves as if they were scattered locusts,
54:8 scrambling toward the summoner. The faithless will say, ‘This is a hard day!’
54:9 The people of Noah impugned before them. So they impugned Our servant and said, ‘A crazy man,’ and he was reviled.
54:10 Thereat he invoked his Lord, [saying,] ‘I have been overcome, so help [me].’
54:11 Then We opened the gates of the sky with pouring waters,
54:12 and We made the earth burst forth with springs, and the waters met for a preordained purpose.
54:13 We bore him on a vessel made of planks and nails,
54:14 which sailed [over the flood waters] in Our sight, as a retribution for him who was repudiated.
54:15 Certainly We have left it as a sign; so is there anyone who will be admonished?
54:16 So how were My punishment and My warnings?
54:17 Certainly We have made the Qur’an simple for the sake of admonishment. So is there anyone who will be admonished?
54:18 [The people of] ‘a€d impugned [their apostle]. So how were My punishment and My warnings?
54:19 Indeed We unleashed upon them an icy gale on an incessantly ill-fated day,
54:20 knocking down people as if they were trunks of uprooted palm trees.
54:21 So how were My punishment and My warnings?!
54:22 Certainly We have made the Qur’an simple for the sake of admonishment. So is there anyone who will be admonished?
54:23 [The people of] Thamud denied the warnings,
54:24 and they said, ‘Are we to follow a lone human from ourselves?! Indeed then we would be in error and madness.’
54:25 ‘Has the Reminder been cast upon him from among us? Rather he is a self-conceited liar.’
54:26 ‘Tomorrow they will know who is a self-conceited liar.
54:27 We are sending the She-camel as a trial for them; so watch them and be steadfast.
54:28 Inform them that the water is to be dispensed between them; every drinking will be attended.’
54:29 But they called their companion, and he took [a knife] and hamstrung [her].
54:30 So how were My punishment and My warnings?!
54:31 We sent against them a single Cry, and they became like the dry sticks of a corral builder.
54:32 Certainly We have made the Qur’an simple for the sake of admonishment. So is there anyone who will be admonished?
54:33 And the people of Lot denied the warnings.
54:34 We unleashed a rain of stones upon them, excepting the family of Lot, whom We delivered at dawn,
54:35 as a blessing from Us. Thus do We reward those who give thanks.
54:36 He had certainly warned them of Our punishment, but they disputed the warnings.
54:37 Certainly they even solicited of him his guests, whereat We blotted out their eyes, [saying,] ‘Taste My punishment and My warnings!’
54:38 Certainly early at dawn there visited them an abiding punishment:
54:39 ‘Taste My punishment and My warnings!’
54:40 Certainly We have made the Qur’an simple for the sake of admonishment. So is there anyone who will be admonished?
54:41 Certainly the warnings came to Pharaoh’s clan
54:42 who denied all of Our signs. So We seized them with the seizing of One [who is] all-mighty, Omnipotent.
54:43 Are your faithless better than those, or have you [been granted] some immunity in the scriptures?
54:44 Do they say, ‘We are a confederate league’?
54:45 The league will be routed and turn its back [to flee].
54:46 Rather the Hour is their tryst; and the Hour will be most calamitous and bitter.
54:47 Indeed the guilty are in error and madness.
54:48 The day when they are dragged into the Fire on their faces, [it will be said to them,] ‘Taste the touch of hell!’
54:49 Indeed We have created everything in a measure,
54:50 and Our command is but a single [word], like the twinkling of an eye.
54:51 Certainly We have destroyed your likes. So is there anyone who will be admonished?
54:52 Everything they have done is in the books,
54:53 and everything big and small, is committed to writing.
54:54 Indeed the Godwary will be amid gardens and streams,
54:55 in the abode of truthfulness with an omnipotent King.
