54:2  Yet if they see any sign, they avoid it and say: 'It's constant magic!"
54:3  They deny [it all] and follow their own whims, even though every matter has been settled.
54:4  News has come to them containing a rebuke,
54:5  as eloquent wisdom, even though warners can get nowhere.
54:6  So turn away from them on the day when the Crier will call out about a horrible event.
54:7  Their eyes cast down, they will issue forth from their tombs as if they were scattered grasshoppers
54:8  dashing along towards the Crier. Disbelievers will say: "This is such a hard day!"
54:9  Noah's folk denied it long before them; they rejected Our servant and said: "[He's] crazy!", and he was rebuffed.
54:10  He appealed to his Lord: "I have been overpowered, so support [me]!"

54:12  We drilled the earth full of springs and the waters met at a command which had been decreed.

54:14  which sailed on before Our eyes, as a reward for someone who had been rejected.

54:20  which snatched men up as if they were hollow palm trunks.
54:21  How were My torment, and My warnings!
54:22  We have made the Quran easy to memorize; yet will anyone memorize it?
54:23  Thamud rejected My warnings too
54:24  and they said: "Are we to follow a single human being from among ourselves? We would then be in error and frenzy.
54:25  Has the Reminder been delivered merely to him among Us? Instead he is a brash liar."
54:26  Tomorrow they will know who the brash liar is!
54:27  We are sending them a she-camel as a test, so watch them and act patient.
54:28  Announce to them how water must be shared among them [and the she-camel]; each will have his own special time to drink.
54:29  They called out to their companion; and he assumed the task and hamstrung [her].
54:30  How were My torment, and My warnings?
54:31  We sent a single Blast against them so they [lay] like dry stalks caught in a fence corner.

54:34  We sent a sandstorm against them, except for Lot's own household whom We saved at daybreak
54:35  as a favor from Ourself; thus We reward anyone who acts grateful.
54:36  He had warned them of Our onslaught, yet they discredited the warnings.
54:37  They tried to coax his guests away from him, so We dazzled their eyes. "Taste My torment and My warnings!"
54:38  Early one morning, unavoidable torment dawned upon them.
54:39  "Taste My torment and My warnings!"
54:40  We have made the Quran easy to memorize; yet will anyone memorize it?

54:42  Yet they rejected Our signs completely, so We seized them the way a Powerful, Competent person would seize [them].
54:43  Are your disbelievers any better than those men were, or have you some dispensation [to be found] in the Psalms?
54:44  Or do they say: "We all support one another"?
54:45  They will all be defeated together and turn their backs [to run away].
54:46  Indeed, the Hour has been promised them; the Hour will be quite disastrous and most bitter.
54:47  Criminals will be lost in error and frenzy.
54:48  Some day they will be dragged face down through the Fire: "Experience the sense of scorching!"
54:49  We have created everything in due proportion.
54:50  Our command comes only once, in the twinkling of an eye!
54:51  We wiped out your adherents; does no one recall it?
54:52  Everything they did is [to be found] in the Psalms;
54:53  everything small or great has been recorded.
54:54  The heedful will be by gardens and rivers
54:55  in a sure position under a Competent Sovereign.
