54:1  The Hour is near, and the Moon is cleft asunder
54:2  But if they see a sign, they turn away and say, “This is a mysterious illusion.
54:3  They reject it and follow their lusts, but every issue has its appointed time
54:4  There have already come to them recitals with which there is enough to check them
54:5  Perfect wisdom, but warners do not profit them
54:6  Therefore, turn away from them. The day that the caller will call them to a terrible affair
54:7  They will come forth, their eyes humbled from their graves, torpid like locusts scattered abroad
54:8  Hastening with eyes transfixed towards the caller. “This is a trying day,” the unbelievers will say
54:9  Before them the people of Noah rejected it. They rejected Our servant and said, “This one is possessed.” And he was driven out
54:10  Then he called on his Lord, “I am one overcome, will You help me?
54:11  So We opened the gates of heaven, with water pouring out
54:12  And We caused the earth to gush forth with springs, so the waters met and rose to the extent decreed
54:13  But We bore him on an ark made of broad planks and caulked with palm-fiber
54:14  It floats under our eyes. A reward for one who had been rejected
54:15  And We have left it as a sign. Then is there any who will receive advice
54:16  But how was My penalty and My warning
54:17  And We have indeed made the Quran intuitive. Then are there any who will receive advice
54:18  The ‘Ad also rejected it. Then how was My penalty and My warnings
54:19  For We sent against them a furious wind, on a day of violent disaster
54:20  Plucking out human beings, as if they were roots of palm trees torn up
54:21  Yes, how was My penalty and My warning
54:22  And indeed We have made the Quran intuitive. Then will any experience it
54:23  The Thamud rejected their warners
54:24  For they said, “What, a human being, one from among ourselves? Should we follow such a one? Truly we would then be in error, and in madness
54:25  “Is it that the message is sent to him of all people among us? No, he is a liar, an insolent one.
54:26  They will know on the morrow, who is the liar, and the insolent one
54:27  For We will send the she-camel as a trial for them. So watch them, and be patient
54:28  And tell them that the water is to be divided between them. Each one’s right to drink being brought forward
54:29  But they called to their companion, and he took a sword in hand, and hamstrung her
54:30  How was My penalty and My warning
54:31  For We sent against them a single mighty blast, and they became like the dry stubble used by one who pens livestock
54:32  And indeed We have made the Quran intuitive. Then will any experience it
54:33  The people of Lot rejected the warning
54:34  We sent against them a violent tornado with showers of stones which caused them to perish, except Lot’s household. We delivered them by early dawn
54:35  As a grace from Us. This is how We reward those who give thanks
54:36  And Lot warned them of Our punishment, but they disputed about the warning
54:37  And they even sought to abduct his guests, but We blinded their eyes. Now taste My punishment and My warning
54:38  Early in the morning an abiding punishment indeed seized them
54:39  “So taste My punishment and My warning.
54:40  And indeed We have made the Quran intuitive. Then will any experience it
54:41  Also to the people of Pharaoh came warners
54:42  The people rejected all of Our signs, but We seized them with a penalty from One Exalted in Power, able to carry out His will
54:43  Are your unbelievers better than they are? Or have you immunity in the sacred books
54:44  Or do they say, “We, acting together, can defend ourselves”
54:45  Soon will their party be on the retreat, and they will show their backs
54:46  No, the Hour is the time promised them, and that Hour will be more terrible and most bitter
54:47  Truly those in sin are the ones straying in mind, and in madness
54:48  The day they will be dragged through the fire on their faces. Taste the touch of hell.
54:49  Indeed, We have created all things in due proportion and measure
54:50  And Our command is only a single act, like the blink of an eye
54:51  And in the past, We have caused groups like you to perish. Then is there any who will receive advice
54:52  All that they do is noted in books
54:53  Every matter, small and great, is on record
54:54  As for the righteous, they will be in the presence of gardens and rivers
54:55  In an assembly of truth, in the presence of the Sovereign, Omnipotent
