Aisha Bewley rendition of Surah The Moon(al-Qamar)
54:1 The Hour has drawn near and the moon has split.
54:2 If they see a Sign they turn away, saying ´There is no end to this witchcraft!´
54:3 They have denied the truth and followed their whims and desires, but everything has its time.
54:4 News has come to them which contains a threat:
54:5 consummate wisdom — but warnings are profitless.
54:6 Turn away from them then. On the Day the Summoner summons them to something unspeakably terrible,
54:7 they will emerge from their graves with downcast eyes, like swarming locusts,
54:8 necks outstretched, eyes transfixed, rushing headlong to the Summoner. The kuffar will say, ´This is a pitiless day!´
54:9 Before them the people of Nuh denied the truth. They denied Our slave, saying, ´He is madman,´ and he was driven away with jeers.
54:10 He called upon his Lord: ´I am overwhelmed, so help me!´
54:11 So We opened the gates of heaven with torrential water
54:12 and made the earth burst forth with gushing springs. And the waters met together in a way which was decreed.
54:13 We bore him on a planked and well-caulked ship,
54:14 which ran before Our eyes — a reward for him who had been rejected.
54:15 We left it as a Sign. But is there any rememberer there?
54:16 How terrible were My punishment and warnings!
54:17 We have made the Qur´an easy to remember. But is there any rememberer there?
54:18 ´Ad denied the truth. How terrible were My punishment and warnings!
54:19 We unleashed a howling wind against them on a day of unremitting horror.
54:20 It plucked up men like uprooted stumps.
54:21 How terrible were My punishment and warnings!
54:22 We have made the Qur´an easy to remember. But is there any rememberer there?
54:23 Thamud denied the warnings.
54:24 They said, ´Are we to follow a human being, one of us? Then we would truly be misguided, quite insane!
54:25 Has the Reminder been given to him of all of us? No indeed! He is an impudent liar.´
54:26 ´They will know tomorrow who the impudent liar is.
54:27 We will send the she-camel as a trial for them. Just keep a watchful eye on them and be steadfast.
54:28 Inform them that the water is to be shared out between them, each drinking by turn.´
54:29 They called on their companion and he set to it and hamstrung her.
54:30 How terrible were My punishment and warnings!
54:31 We sent a single Blast against them and they were just like a thatcher´s reeds.
54:32 We have made the Qur´an easy to remember. But is there any rememberer there?
54:33 The people of Lut denied the warnings.
54:34 We unleashed a sudden squall of stones against all of them, except the family of Lut, who We rescued before dawn.
54:35 It was a blessing direct from Our presence. That is how We recompense those who give thanks.
54:36 He warned them of Our onslaught but they dismissed the warnings.
54:37 They even wanted to seduce his guests! So We put out their eyes: ´Taste My punishment and warnings!´
54:38 Early morning brought them enduring punishment:
54:39 ´Taste My punishment and warnings!´
54:40 We have made the Qur´an easy to remember But is there any rememberer there?
54:41 Warnings came to Pharaoh´s people.
54:42 They dismissed every one of Our Signs and so We seized them with the seizing of One who is Almighty, All-Powerful.
54:43 Are your kuffar better than those peoples´? Or have you been given exemption in the Books?
54:44 Or do they say, ´We are an assembly who will win´?
54:45 The assembly will be routed and will turn their backs in flight.
54:46 In fact the Hour is their promised appointment and the Hour is more disastrous and bitter!
54:47 The evildoers are indeed misguided and insane
54:48 on the Day that they are dragged face-first into the Fire: ´Taste the scorching touch of Saqar!´
54:49 We have created all things in due measure.
54:50 Our command is only one word, like the blinking of an eye.
54:51 We destroyed those of your kind in the past. But is there any rememberer there?
54:52 Everything they did is in the Books.
54:53 Everything is recorded, big or small.
54:54 The people who have taqwa will be amid Gardens and Rivers,
54:55 on seats of honour in the presence of an All-Powerful King.
