54:1  The hour drew near and the moon was split .
54:2  And if they see a sign they turn away and say, “Magic (of old) repeated.”
54:3  And they denied and followed their desires. And every affair has a (set) time/place of happening.
54:4  And there has come to them (that part) of the news in which there is (a warning for them) to restrain,
54:5  mature wisdom, but warnings are of no use (to them),
54:6  so turn away from them. The day an announcer will call them towards an awful thing put,
54:7  with their sight humbled, they will come out of the graves, as if they were scattered locusts,
54:8  hastening with their eyes fixed towards the announcer. The infidels will say, “This is a day of difficulty.”
54:9  The people of Nuh denied before them, so they denied Our servant and said, “One influenced by jinn,” and he was scolded and driven away.
54:10  Then he prayed to his Fosterer, “I am overcome so help me.”
54:11  So We opened the gates of the sky with water pouring forth,
54:12  and We caused the earth to gush forth with springs, so the waters met for (the execution of) an affair already programmed.
54:13  And We carried him on (the ship) made of planks and nails (or planks tied with palm fibre),
54:14  sailing before Our eyes, a reward for him who was rejected.
54:15  And We left it as a sign, but is there anyone who will mind?
54:16  Then how (terrible) was My punishment and My warning!
54:17  And We have indeed made the Quran easy to remember (understand and be mindful), but is there anyone who will mind?
54:18  Aad denied, then how (terrible) was My punishment and My warning!
54:19  We sent on them a furious wind during the day (period) of repeated loss,
54:20  uprooting men as if they were trunks of uprooted date palms.
54:21  Then how (terrible) was My punishment and My warning!
54:22  And We have indeed made the Quran easy to remember, but is there anyone who will mind?
54:23  Samood were deniers of the warnings,
54:24  so they said, “Should we follow him who is a single man from among us? We will then certainly be in error and madness.
54:25  Has the reminder been made to come down (only) on him from among (all of) us? No, he is a self interested liar.”
54:26  Tomorrow they will know who is a self interested liar.
54:27  We are sending the she camel as a test for them, so be vigilant (over) them and be patient.
54:28  And inform them that the water is to be shared between (the she camel and) them, each one should be present (for) the drink (at one’s turn).
54:29  But they called their companion, so he took (the sword) then slew (the she camel).
54:30  Then how (terrible) was My punishment and My warning!
54:31  We sent on them a single loud cry so they became like dry broken pieces (of trees used to make) an enclosure (for the cattle or around fields).
54:32  And We indeed made the Quran easy to remember, but is there anyone who will mind?
54:33  The people of Lut were deniers of the warnings.
54:34  We sent on them a sand storm (or volcanic debris), except the followers of Lut, We delivered them by dawn.
54:35  A favour from Us, thus do We reward him who is grateful.
54:36  And he had warned them of Our seizure but they doubted and disputed about the warnings.
54:37  And they even sought to take away from him his guests (for an evil purpose), but We blinded their eyes, so taste My punishment and My warning.
54:38  The punishment set (to befall) at its place/time of happening, befell them in the morning.
54:39  So taste My punishment and My warning.
54:40  And We indeed made the Quran easy to remember, but is there anyone who will mind?
54:41  And the warnings came to the people of Firawn
54:42  but they were deniers of Our signs, each of them, so We seized them (with a) seizure of One Mighty, Powerful.
54:43  Are infidels (among) you better than those or is there a freedom for you in the scriptures?
54:44  Or do they say, “We are a defended army.”
54:45  The army will be defeated and they will be made to turn their backs.
54:46  No, the hour of doom is their promised time and the hour of doom will be most grievous and most bitter.
54:47  The criminals are certainly in error and madness.
54:48  On the day they will be dragged into the fire on their faces, (it will be said), “Taste the affliction of hell.”
54:49  We have certainly created everything with a programme.
54:50  And Our command is but one, like the twinkling of an eye.
54:51  And We indeed destroyed sects (like those of) yours, but is there anyone who will mind?
54:52  And everything they did, is in the books
54:53  and everything small or great is written down (recorded).
54:54  Those who guard (against evil) will certainly be in gardens with rivers,
54:55  in a confirmed seat, near the King, the Holder of power.
