Musharraf Hussain rendition of Surah The Moon(al-Qamar)
54:1 The Final Hour is drawing near and the moon has split into two.
54:2 And after seeing the miracle they turned away saying, “This is a powerful magic.”
54:3 They denied and followed their whims. For every action produces a specific outcome.
54:4 The reports of ancient people have come to them containing lessons
54:5 with far-reaching wisdom, but those warnings didn’t benefit them.
54:6 Messenger, turn away from them, one Day a caller will call them to something terrible;
54:7 with eyes lowered they will exit their graves like swarms of locusts,
54:8 rushing in terror towards the caller, and the disbelievers will say, “This is a difficult Day.
54:9 Previously, the people of Nuh denied Our servant, and called him a mad man and severely scolded him.
54:10 He cried out to His Lord: “I am weak and beaten, so help me!”
54:11 So We opened the sky’s floodgates with torrential rain,
54:12 and caused the Earth’s springs to surge, and the two waters met as pre-designed.
54:13 We carried him on a boat made of wooden planks held together with nails,
54:14 floating under our watchful gaze. A magnificent reward for the one denied.
54:15 We left that as a sign; will anyone pay attention?
54:16 How terrible were My punishments and warnings?
54:17 We made the Quran easy to learn and understand, so will anyone pay attention
54:18 The people of Ad also denied, so how terrible were My punishment and warnings?
54:19 We sent a howling storm wind on a Day of bitter misfortune,
54:20 which blew people away like uprooted palm trunks.
54:21 How terrible were My punishment and warnings.
54:22 We have made the Quran easy to learn and understand, so will anyone pay attention
54:23 The people of Thamud also denied Our warnings.
54:24 They said, “We must be misguided and mad people if we follow one man from among us.
54:25 How could he be given a Revelation? He is a big-headed liar.”
54:26 Tomorrow they shall know who is a big-headed liar.
54:27 We shall send a she-camel to test them, so patiently watch over them.
54:28 And tell them, the water shall be divided equally among them, and each will come to it when it’s their turn.
54:29 So they called for their leader who cut the hamstrings of the she-camel.
54:30 How terrible were My punishment and warnings?
54:31 We sent a single blast to destroy them, and they were like the scattered sticks of a broken fence
54:32 Indeed We made the Quran easy to learn and understand, so will anyone pay attention?
54:33 The people of Lut denied the warnings.
54:34 We sent a sandstorm of stones; the only exception was the family of Lut, We saved them at dawn,
54:35 a favour from Us. This is how We reward the thankful.
54:36 He warned them clearly about Our punishment, but they doubted the warnings.
54:37 They also demanded from him his guests, so We blinded them and told them, “Taste My punishment and the warnings.”
54:38 So early one morning, a lasting punishment seized them.
54:39 It was said: “Taste My punishment and warnings.”
54:40 We made the Quran easy to learn and understand; so will anyone pay attention
54:41 Warners came to the people of Pharaoh,
54:42 but they denied all Our signs, so We grabbed them with force and power.
54:43 Are your disbelievers, the Quraysh, stronger than them, or have they been promised protection in Divine Scriptures?
54:44 Or do they say: “We are a united people bound to be victorious.”
54:45 Soon they will be defeated, and they will turn their backs and flee.
54:46 The Judgement Day is their appointed time, and it will be a terrifying and most difficult Day.
54:47 The sinners are indeed misguided and foolish.
54:48 The Day when they are dragged on their faces and thrown into Hell, it will be said: “Taste the burning of Hellfire.
54:49 We created everything in a precisely-measured way.
54:50 Our order is carried out instantly, like the blink of an eye.
54:51 We destroyed the likes of you, so is there anyone who will pay attention?
54:52 Everything they did is in the Records –
54:53 whether big or small – all was written down.
54:54 The righteous will be in Paradise with flowing streams,
54:55 a delightful place in the presence of the All-Powerful King
