Rashad Khalifa rendition of Surah The Moon(al-Qamar)
54:1 The Hour has come closer, and the moon has split.
54:2 Then they saw a miracle; but they turned away and said, "Old magic."
54:3 They disbelieved, followed their opinions, and adhered to their old traditions.
54:4 Sufficient warnings have been delivered to alert them.
54:5 Great wisdom; but all the warnings have been in vain.
54:6 Ignore them; the day will come when the caller will announce a terrible disaster.
54:7 With their eyes humiliated, they come out of the graves like scattered locusts.
54:8 As they respond to the caller, the disbelievers will say, "This is a difficult day."
54:9 The people of Noah disbelieved before them. They disbelieved our servant and said, "Crazy!" He was persecuted.
54:10 He implored his Lord, "I am oppressed; grant me victory."
54:11 We then opened the gates of the sky, pouring water.
54:12 And we caused springs to gush out of the earth. The waters met to effect a predetermined decision.
54:13 We carried him on a watercraft made of logs and ropes.
54:14 It ran under our watchful eyes; a reward for one who was rejected.
54:15 We have set it up as a lesson. Does any of you wish to learn?
54:16 How terrible was My retribution after the warnings!
54:17 We made the Quran easy to learn. Does any of you wish to learn?
54:18 `Aad disbelieved. Consequently, how terrible was My retribution after the warnings.
54:19 We sent upon them violent winds, on a day of continuous misery.
54:20 It tossed the people around as if they were decayed palm tree trunks.
54:21 How terrible was My retribution after the warnings!
54:22 We made the Quran easy to learn. Does any of you wish to learn?
54:23 Thamoud rejected the warnings.
54:24 They said, "Shall we follow one of us; a human being? We will then go astray, then end up in Hell.
54:25 "Did the message come down to him, instead of us? He is a flagrant liar."
54:26 They will find out tomorrow who the flagrant liar is.
54:27 We are sending the camel as a test for them. Watch them and be patient.
54:28 Inform them that the water shall be divided among them; (the camel) shall be allowed to drink on her designated day.
54:29 But they persuaded their friend to kill (the camel), and he obliged.
54:30 Consequently, how terrible was My retribution! They have been warned.
54:31 We sent upon them one blow, whereupon they became like harvested hay.
54:32 We made the Quran easy to learn. Does any of you wish to learn?
54:33 The people of Lot rejected the warnings.
54:34 We showered them with rocks. Only Lot's family was saved at dawn.
54:35 We blessed him and his family; we thus reward the appreciative.
54:36 He warned them about our requital, but they ridiculed the warnings.
54:37 They negotiated with him about his guests; we blinded them. Suffer My retribution; you have been warned.
54:38 Early the next morning, a devastating retribution struck them.
54:39 Suffer My retribution; you have been warned.
54:40 We made the Quran easy to learn. Does any of you wish to learn?
54:41 Pharaoh's people were warned.
54:42 They rejected all our signs. Consequently, we requited them as an Almighty, Omnipotent should.
54:43 Are your disbelievers better than those disbelievers? Have you been absolved by the scripture?
54:44 Perhaps they think, "We will be the winners."
54:45 All of them will be defeated; they will turn around and flee.
54:46 The Hour is awaiting them, and the Hour is far worse and more painful.
54:47 Certainly, the guilty are astray, and will end up in Hell.
54:48 They will be dragged into the hellfire, forcibly. Suffer the agony of retribution.
54:49 Everything we created is precisely measured.
54:50 Our commands are done within the blink of an eye.
54:51 We annihilated your counterparts. Does any of you wish to learn?
54:52 Everything they did is recorded in the scriptures.
54:53 Everything, small or large, is written down.
54:54 Surely, the righteous have deserved gardens and rivers.
54:55 In a position of honor, at an Omnipotent King.
