Shakir rendition of Surah The Moon(al-Qamar)
54:1 The hour drew nigh and the moon did rend asunder
54:2 And if they see a miracle they turn aside and say: Transient magic
54:3 And they call (it) a lie, and follow their low desires; and every affair has its appointed term
54:4 And certainly some narratives have come to them wherein is prevention-
54:5 Consummate wisdom-- but warnings do not avail
54:6 So turn (your) back on them (for) the day when the inviter shall invite them to a hard task
54:7 Their eyes cast down, going forth from their graves as if they were scattered locusts
54:8 Hastening to the inviter. The unbelievers shall say: This is a hard day
54:9 Before them the people of Nuh rejected, so they rejected Our servant and called (him) mad, and he was driven away
54:10 Therefore he called upon his Lord: I am overcome, come Thou then to help
54:11 So We opened the gates of the cloud with water pourin
54:12 And We made water to flow forth in the land in springs, so the water gathered together according to a measure already ordained
54:13 And We bore him on that which was made of planks and nail
54:14 Sailing, before Our eyes, a reward for him who was denied
54:15 And certainly We left it as a sign, but is there anyone wh
54:16 How (great) was then My punishment and My warning
54:17 And certainly We have made the Quran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will mind
54:18 Ad treated (the truth) as a lie, so how (great) was My punishment and My warning
54:19 Surely We sent on them a tornado in a day of bitter ill-luc
54:20 Tearing men away as if they were the trunks of palm-trees torn up
54:21 How (great) was then My punishment and My warning
54:22 And certainly We have made the Quran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will mind
54:23 Samood rejected the warning
54:24 So they said: What! a single mortal from among us! Shall we follow him? Most surely we shall in that case be in sure error and distress
54:25 Has the reminder been made to light upon him from among us? Nay! he is an insolent liar
54:26 Tomorrow shall they know who is the liar, the insolent one
54:27 Surely We are going to send the she-camel as a trial for them; therefore watch them and have patience
54:28 And inform them that the water is shared between them; every share of the water shall be regulated
54:29 But they called their companion, so he took (the sword) and slew (her)
54:30 How (great) was then My punishment and My warning
54:31 Surely We sent upon them a single cry, so they were like the dry fragments of trees which the maker of an enclosure collects
54:32 And certainly We have made the Quran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will mind
54:33 The people of Lut treated the warning. as a lie
54:34 Surely We sent upon them a stonestorm, except Lut's followers; We saved them a little before daybreak
54:35 A favor from Us; thus do We reward him who gives thanks
54:36 And certainly he warned them of Our violent seizure, but they obstinately disputed the warning
54:37 And certainly they endeavored to turn him from his guests, but We blinded their eyes; so taste My chastisement and My warning
54:38 And certainly a lasting chastisement overtook them in the morning
54:39 So taste My chastisement and My warning
54:40 And certainly We have made the Quran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will mind
54:41 And certainly the warning came to Firon's people
54:42 They rejected all Our communications, so We overtook them after the manner of a Mighty, Powerful One
54:43 Are the unbelievers of yours better than these, or is there an exemption for you in the scriptures
54:44 Or do they say: We are a host allied together to help each other
54:45 Soon shall the hosts be routed, and they shall turn (their) backs
54:46 Nay, the hour is their promised time, and the hour shall be most grievous and bitter
54:47 Surely the guilty are in error and distress
54:48 On the day when they shall be dragged upon their faces into the fire; taste the touch of hell
54:49 Surely We have created everything according to a measure
54:50 And Our command is but one, as the twinkling of an eye
54:51 And certainly We have already destroyed the likes of you, but is there anyone who will mind
54:52 And everything they have done is in the writings
54:53 And everything small and great is written down
54:54 Surely those who guard (against evil) shall be in gardens and rivers
54:55 In the seat of honor with a most Powerful King
