Dr. Mohammad Tahir-ul-Qadri rendition of Surah The Moon(al-Qamar)
54:1 The Last Hour has drawn near and the moon has split into two.
54:2 And if they (the disbelievers) see a sign (a miracle), they turn their faces away and say: ‘This is the powerful magic ever running down through ages.’
54:3 And they have rejected (the truth even now) and followed their vain desires. And everything (that has been promised) is to take place at the appointed time.
54:4 And indeed, the news has come to them (of the earlier communities) containing lessons of warning and admonition (on disbelief and disobedience).
54:5 (This Qur’an) is perfect intellect and reason. Are the Warners still not of any benefit?
54:6 So turn your face away from them. The Day when the caller (angel) will call towards the most detestable thing (the expanse of the last assembly),
54:7 With eyes cast down, they will come out of their graves like scattered locusts,
54:8 Rushing towards the caller running. The disbelievers will say: ‘This is a very hard Day.’
54:9 The people of Nuh (Noah) also denied before this. So they belied Our servant (Nuh [Noah], the Messenger) and said: ‘(He) is mad.’ And he was given threats.
54:10 So he prayed to his Lord: ‘I am powerless (before the transgressions of my people) so exact revenge.’
54:11 Then We opened the gates of heaven with torrential rain.
54:12 And We burst springs from the earth. So the water (of the earth and the heaven) collected for the same purpose that had been decreed already (for their destruction).
54:13 And We carried him (Nuh [Noah]) in the (Ark) built with planks and nails,
54:14 Which floated before Our eyes (under Our security. All this) was done to exact revenge for him, Nuh (Noah), who was rejected.
54:15 And surely, We made (the ruins of the Deluge) subsist as a sign. So is there anyone who will think (and take advice)?
54:16 So how My torment and My warning were!
54:17 And indeed, We have made the Qur’an easy for direction and guidance, but is there anyone who will take advice?
54:18 (The people of) ‘Ad too rejected (the Messengers). So how (awful) My torment (upon them) and My warning were!
54:19 Surely, We sent upon them a howling windstorm on a day of lasting evil (in their favour),
54:20 That plucked out people as if they were uprooted stems of date-palms.
54:21 Then how (awful) My torment and My warning were!
54:22 And indeed, We have made the Qur’an easy for direction and guidance, but is there anyone who will take advice?
54:23 (The people of) Thamud also rejected the Warning Messengers.
54:24 So they said: ‘Are we to follow a human being who is one of us? Then we shall certainly run into error and insanity.
54:25 Has the direction and guidance (Revelation) been sent down to him alone out of all of us? The truth is that he is a great liar, self-conceited (and arrogant).’
54:26 They will come to know tomorrow (on the Day of Judgment) who is a great liar, self-conceited (and arrogant).
54:27 Indeed, We are going to send a she-camel for them to test them. So, (O Salih,) wait for their (end) and continue observing patience.
54:28 And make it known to them that water has been divided between them (and the she-camel). Everyone will be served with the share of water by turn.
54:29 So they called one of their companions (named Qidar). He attacked (the she-camel with a sword) and hamstrung her.
54:30 Then how (awful) My torment and My warning were!
54:31 Verily, We sent upon them a terrible roar. So they became like a thatcher’s trampled stubble.
54:32 And indeed, We have made the Qur’an easy for direction and guidance, but is there anyone who will take advice?
54:33 The people of Lut (Lot) also rejected the Warners.
54:34 Surely, We sent a windstorm raining stones upon them except the family of Lut (Lot). We saved them (from the torment) in the later part of the night,
54:35 With a special favour from Us. In the same way, We give reward to him who gives thanks.
54:36 And no doubt, Lut (Lot) warned them of Our seizure but, having doubts about his warnings, they denied.
54:37 And indeed, they made up their minds to snatch from Lut (Lot) his guests. So We erased the structure of their eyes and stripped them of sight, then (said to them:) ‘Taste My punishment and warning.’
54:38 And surely, the everlasting punishment reached them early in the morning.
54:39 Then (it was said to them:) ‘Taste My punishment and warning.’
54:40 And indeed, We have made the Qur’an easy for direction and guidance, but is there anyone who will take advice?
54:41 And surely, the Warners came to the people of Pharaoh (as well).
54:42 They denied all Our signs. Then We seized them with the seizure befitting the Glory of Almighty, All-Powerful.
54:43 (O Quraysh of Mecca!) Are your disbelievers better than the people (before), or has your salvation been written in the (revealed) Books?
54:44 Or do these (disbelievers) say: ‘We are a strong party dominant (over the Prophet [blessings and peace be upon him])’?
54:45 Soon this party will be defeated (in the battlefield of Badr), and they will flee away, turning their backs.
54:46 But their (actual) promise is the Last Hour, and the Last Hour is extremely terrible and most agonizing.
54:47 Assuredly, the evildoers are in (the fold of) error and insanity (or Fire).
54:48 The Day when they will be dragged into Hell on their faces (it will be said to them:) ‘Taste burning in Hell.’
54:49 Surely, We have created everything according to a fixed measure.
54:50 And Our command comes into action once and for all as the twinkling of an eye.
54:51 And surely, We destroyed (many of) your groups. So is there anyone who will take advice?
54:52 And whatever they did is (recorded) in (their) Books of Deeds.
54:53 And every (action), small or big, has been written.
54:54 Indeed, the Godfearing will (rejoice) in gardens and streams,
54:55 And will (be seated) in special nearness to the Sovereign Lord of (true) power during holy sessions.
