54:1  The hour (of judgment) approaches as moon is being split
54:2  The disbelievers, however, make fun of indications of God and refer to it as an act of magic
54:3  They deny the Lord and follow their own (low worldly) desires. Every prescribed event, however, will take place when its time arrives
54:4  The disbelievers have heard about the other prophets and it is easy for them to cross check the truth
54:5  Unfortunately, they do not take these wise admonitions seriously
54:6  Leave them alone then till they are called to face the awesome event
54:7  They will come out of their graves with the most horrified eyes resembling to a bunch of locusts
54:8  Towards facing their terrible destiny, they will say: “Indeed this is an awful day.”
54:9  The people of Noah, too, made fun of my servant. They called him a crazy man and ex-communicated him
54:10  Noah (in despair) called upon his Lord: “I am overcome, would you come to my rescue”
54:11  So I (God) opened the gates of the sky and poured down the water
54:12  As to the earth, I (God) gushed forth springs so that the water reached as high as desired
54:13  I (God) carried Noah, then, on a bunch of planks fastened by palm fibers
54:14  Under My watchful eyes, Noah floated to the safety. What a terrible punishment it was for the disbelievers
54:15  This is left as a warning sign; is there anyone who minds an admonition

54:17  I (God) have made Qur’an easy to understand; is there anyone who minds an admonition
54:18  The tribe of Ad also denied their prophet. How true was my warning and how awful my punishment
54:19  Then one day I sent them a strong storm; a nasty storm that brought them nothing but misery
54:20  The storm was tossing people around as though they were decayed palm tree trunks
54:21  What a truthful warning and what a sever punishment
54:22  I (God) have made Qur’an easy to understand; is there anyone who minds an admonition
54:23  The tribe of Thamud also denied their warnings
54:24  They said: “Are we crazy to follow a lonely person who is just a human being like us?”
54:25  “Is there no one better among us worthy of receiving God’s messages? Indeed this “prophet” is a liar who brags about his closeness to God”
54:26  Tomorrow they will find out who the liar is.”
54:27  “Tomorrow we will send a camel to try their obedience with. Watch their behavior with patience.”
54:28  Let them know that they have to share their spring water with the camel.”
54:29  Instead, They commissioned a clan member to kill the camel
54:30  How terrible was My (God’s) punishment after My warnings
54:31  I sent them only one blow which made them look like harvested hay
54:32  I (God) have made Qur’an easy to understand; is there anyone who minds an admonition
54:33  The people of Lot also denied their prophet’s warnings
54:34  I (God) showered them with rocks. Only Lot’s family was saved at dawn
54:35  I (God) blessed him and his family; this is the way that I reward the grateful ones
54:36  Lot warned his people about God’s upcoming punishment but they made jokes and laughed at him
54:37  They verbally abused Lot’s honorable guests. That is why, I made them blind: Suffer my punishment; you have been warned
54:38  Then early next morning a disaster struck them
54:39  Suffer my punishment; you have been warned
54:40  I (God) have made Qur’an easy to understand; is there anyone who minds an admonition
54:41  Pharaoh’s people were warned
54:42  They denied all My Warnings. Consequently, I punished them in a manner that the Almighty Powerful punishes
54:43  Do you disbeliever think that you are better than the ones before you? Is there any exemptions for you in the Scriptures
54:44  Do they believe that by sticking together they will win
54:45  Pretty soon you will show your back on flying
54:46  They will see the real misery, however, on the Day of their Resurrection;… it is far worse and more painful
54:47  The wicked people who have chosen the wrong path will be chained and dragged into Hell
54:48  When they are thrown into fire, they will be told: Taste now the flame of Hell.”
54:49  I have created everything with a pre-destined fate
54:50  It will take only a twinkle of an eye for My (God’s) command to be fulfilled
54:51  I (God) have destroyed many like you as an example; is there anyone who wants to take a lesson
54:52  Whatever done is registered in a Book
54:53  The Book covers everything; no matter how grave or immaterial it seems to be
54:54  As to those who minded their Lord, they will end up in gardens with the streams
54:55  In a place of true honor: At the presence of the Most Powerful King
