54:1  The hour of judgment approacheth; and the moon hath been split in sunder
54:2  But if the unbelievers see a sign, they turn aside, saying, this is a powerful charm
54:3  And they accuse thee, O Mohammed, of imposture, and follow their own lusts: But every thing will be immutably fixed
54:4  And now hath a message come unto them, wherein is a determent from obstinate infidelity
54:5  the same being consummate wisdom: But warners profit them not
54:6  wherefore do thou withdraw from them. The day whereon the summoner shall summon mankind to an ungrateful business
54:7  they shall come forth from their graves with down-cast looks: Numerous as locusts scattered far abroad
54:8  hastening with terror unto the summoner. The unbelievers shall say, this is a day of distress
54:9  The people of Noah accused that prophet of imposture, before thy people rejected thee: They accused our servant of imposture, saying, he is a madman; and he was rejected with reproach
54:10  He called, therefore, upon his Lord, saying, verily I am overpowered; wherefore avenge me
54:11  So We opened the gates of heaven, with water pouring down
54:12  and We caused the earth to break forth into springs; so that the water of heaven and earth met, according to the decree which had been established
54:13  And We bare him on a vessel composed of planks and nails
54:14  which moved forward under our eyes: As a recompense unto him who had been ungratefully rejected
54:15  And We left the said vessel for a sign: But is any one warned thereby
54:16  And how severe was my vengeance, and my threatening
54:17  Now have We made the Koran easy for admoniton: But is any one admonished thereby
54:18  Ad charged their prophet with imposture: But how severe was my vengeance, and my threatening
54:19  Verily We sent against them a roaring wind, on a day of continued ill-luck
54:20  It carried men away, as though they had been roots of palm-trees forcibly torn up
54:21  And how severe was my vengeance, and my threatening
54:22  Now have We made the Koran easy for admonition: But is any one admonished thereby
54:23  Thamud charged the admonitions of their prophet with falsehood
54:24  and said, shall we follow a single man among us? Verily we should then be guilty of error, and preposterous madness
54:25  Is the office of admonition committed unto him preferably to the rest of us? Nay; he is a liar, and an insolent fellow
54:26  But God said to Saleh, to morrow shall they know who is the liar, and the insolent person
54:27  For We will surely send the she-camel for a trial of them; and do thou observe them, and bear their insults with patience
54:28  And prophesy unto them that the water shall be divided between them, and each portion shall be sat down to alternately
54:29  And they called their companion: And he took a sword, and slew her
54:30  But how severe was my vengeance, and my threatening
54:31  For We sent against them one cry of the angel Gabriel, and they became like the dry sticks used by him who buildeth a fold for cattle
54:32  And now have We made the Koran easy for admonition: But is any one admonished thereby
54:33  The people of Lot charged his preaching with falsehood
54:34  But We sent against them a wind driving a shower of stones, which destroyed them all except the family of Lot; whom We delivered early in the morning
54:35  through favour from Us. Thus do We reward those who are thankful
54:36  And Lot had warned them of our severity in chastising; but they doubted of that warning
54:37  And they demanded his guests of him, that they might abuse them: But We put out their eyes, saying, taste my vengeance, and my threatening
54:38  And early in the morning a lasting punishment surprized them
54:39  Taste, therefore, my vengeance, and my threatening
54:40  Now have We made the Koran easy for admonition: But is any one admonished thereby
54:41  The warning of Moses also came unto the people of Pharaoh
54:42  but they charged every one of our signs with imposture: Wherefore We chastised them with a mighty and irresistible chastisement
54:43  Are your unbelievers, O Meccans, better than these? Is immunity from punishment promised unto you in the scriptures
54:44  Do they say, we are a body of men able to prevail against our enemies
54:45  The multitude shall surely be put to flight, and shall turn their back
54:46  But the hour of judgment is their threatened time of punishment: And that hour shall be more grievous and more bitter than their afflictions in this life
54:47  Verily the wicked wander in error, and shall be tormented hereafter in burning flames
54:48  On that day they shall be dragged into the fire on their faces; and it shall be said unto them, taste ye the touch of hell
54:49  All things have We created bound by a fixed decree
54:50  And our command is no more than a single word, like the twinkling of an eye
54:51  We have formerly destroyed nations like unto you; but is any of you warned by their example
54:52  Every thing which they do is recorded in the books kept by the guardian angels
54:53  And every action, both small and great, is written down in the preserved table
54:54  Moreover the pious shall dwell among gardens and rivers
54:55  in the assembly of truth, in the presence of a most potent king
