54:1  THE HOUR HAS come and split is the moon
54:2  But if they see a sign they turn away, and say: "This is the same old lie continuing,"
54:3  And deny, and follow their own vain desires; but every matter is determined at its time
54:4  Messages deterring them from evil had come to them
54:5  Containing consummate wisdom; yet warnings were of no avail
54:6  So turn away from them. When on the Day the crier calls to the painful business
54:7  They will come out of the graves with downcast eyes like an expanding swarm of locusts
54:8  They will hasten forward to the caller, gazes fixed. And the unbelievers will say: "This is the day of untold woe."
54:9  The people of Noah had denied before them, and had called Our votary a liar, and said: "He is possessed," and repulsed him
54:10  So he prayed to his Lord: "I am helpless, deliver me."
54:11  And We opened up the flood gates of the sky with water pouring down in torrents
54:12  And We opened up the springs of the earth; and the waters met for a decreed end
54:13  But We bore him on a (vessel made) of planks and oakum
54:14  Which sailed right under Our eyes: A recompense for him who had been denied
54:15  And We left it as a sign. Is there anyone who will be warned
54:16  How was then My punishment and My commination
54:17  Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will be warned
54:18  The 'Ad had also disavowed. How was then My punishment and My commination
54:19  We let loose against them a violent roaring wind on a day of ill omen, continuous
54:20  Which snatched away men as though they were palm trees pulled out by the roots
54:21  How was then My punishment and My commination
54:22  Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will pay heed
54:23  The Thamud rejected the warnings
54:24  And said: "Should we follow only one man among us? In that case we shall he in error and insane
54:25  Was he the one of all of us to have been given the exposition? He is surely an impudent liar."
54:26  "Tomorrow they will know who is the impudent liar
54:27  We shall send the she-camel to try them. So watch them, and be constant
54:28  Tell them that the water is to be apportioned between them (and her); and every turn of drinking will be fixed (for each)."
54:29  But they called their commander, who seized and hamstrung her
54:30  How was then My punishment of which they had been warned
54:31  We sent a single blast against them, and they were reduced to husks of a decayed fence
54:32  Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will be warned
54:33  The people of Lot rejected the warnings
54:34  We sent a stone-hurtling storm against them, except the family of Lot whom We saved in the early hours of the mornin
54:35  As a favour from Us. That is how We reward the grateful
54:36  He had warned them of Our might, but they passed over the warnings
54:37  They lusted after his guests, so We put out their eyes (and said): "Taste My punishment and My commination."
54:38  And early in the morning the decreed punishment came upon them
54:39  So now taste My punishment and My commination
54:40  Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will be warned
54:41  The warnings came to the people of Pharaoh
54:42  They rejected each one of Our signs. So We seized them with the grip of one mighty and powerful
54:43  Are the unbelievers among you any better than they? Or is there immunity for you in the Scriptures
54:44  Or do they say: "We are a well-accoutred army?"
54:45  The army will be routed and put to flight
54:46  Surely the Hour will be the moment of their promise, and that moment will be calamitous and distressing
54:47  Surely the sinners are misguided and insane
54:48  On that Day they will be dragged into the fire faces foremost, (and told:) "Taste the feel of Hell."
54:49  We have indeed created all things by measure
54:50  And Our command is but one (word) swift as the winking of an eye
54:51  We have destroyed the likes of you in the past: So is there any one who will be warned
54:52  All things they do are (recorded) in the books
54:53  All things small or great have been written down
54:54  Surely those who fear God and follow the straight path will be amidst gardens and light
54:55  At the still centre in the proximity of the King all-powerful
