Talal A. Itani (new translation) rendition of Surah The Moon(al-Qamar)
54:1 The Hour has drawn near, and the moon has split
54:2 Yet whenever they see a miracle, they turn away, and say, 'Continuous magic.'
54:3 They lied, and followed their opinions, but everything has its time
54:4 And there came to them news containing a deterrent
54:5 Profound wisdom—but warnings are of no avail
54:6 So turn away from them. On the Day when the Caller calls to something terrible
54:7 Their eyes humiliated, they will emerge from the graves, as if they were swarming locusts
54:8 Scrambling towards the Caller, the disbelievers will say, 'This is a difficult Day.'
54:9 Before them the people of Noah disbelieved. They rejected Our servant, and said, 'Crazy,' and he was rebuked
54:10 So he appealed to his Lord, 'I am overwhelmed, so help me.'
54:11 So We opened the floodgates of heaven with water pouring down
54:12 And We made the earth burst with springs, and the waters met for a purpose already destined
54:13 And We carried him on a craft of planks and nails
54:14 Sailing before Our eyes; a reward for him who was rejected
54:15 And We left it as a sign. Is there anyone who would take heed
54:16 So how were My punishment and My warnings
54:17 We made the Quran easy to learn. Is there anyone who would learn
54:18 Aad denied the truth. So how were My punishment and My warnings
54:19 We unleashed upon them a screaming wind, on a day of unrelenting misery
54:20 Plucking the people away, as though they were trunks of uprooted palm-trees
54:21 So how were My punishment and My warnings
54:22 We made the Quran easy to remember. Is there anyone who would remember
54:23 Thamood rejected the warnings
54:24 They said, 'Are we to follow one of us, a human being? We would then go astray, and end up in Hell
54:25 Was the message given to him, out of all of us? In fact, he is a wicked liar.'
54:26 They will know tomorrow who the wicked liar is
54:27 We are sending the she-camel as a test for them; so watch them and be patient
54:28 And inform them that the water is to be shared between them; each share of drink made available
54:29 But they called their friend, and he dared, and he slaughtered
54:30 So how were My punishment and My warnings
54:31 We sent against them a single Scream, and they became like crushed hay
54:32 We made the Quran easy to understand. Is there anyone who would understand
54:33 The people of Lot rejected the warnings
54:34 We unleashed upon them a shower of stones, except for the family of Lot; We rescued them at dawn
54:35 A blessing from Us. Thus We reward the thankful
54:36 He had warned them of Our onslaught, but they dismissed the warnings
54:37 They even lusted for his guest, so We obliterated their eyes. 'So taste My punishment and My warnings.'
54:38 Early morning brought upon them enduring punishment
54:39 So taste My punishment and My warnings
54:40 We made the Quran easy to memorize. Is there anyone who would memorize
54:41 The warnings also came to the people of Pharaoh
54:42 They rejected Our signs, all of them, so We seized them—the seizure of an Almighty Omnipotent
54:43 Are your unbelievers better than all those? Or do you have immunity in the scriptures
54:44 Or do they say, 'We are united, and we will be victorious'
54:45 The multitude will be defeated, and they will turn their backs
54:46 The Hour is their appointed time—the Hour is more disastrous, and most bitter
54:47 The wicked are in confusion and madness
54:48 The Day when they are dragged upon their faces into the Fire: 'Taste the touch of Saqar.'
54:49 Everything We created is precisely measured
54:50 And Our command is but once, like the twinkling of an eye
54:51 We have destroyed your likes. Is there anyone who would ponder
54:52 Everything they have done is in the Books
54:53 Everything, small or large, is written down
54:54 The righteous will be amidst gardens and rivers
54:55 In an assembly of virtue, in the presence of an Omnipotent King
