54:1  The Hour has come near, and the moon has split.
54:2  If they see a sign, they turn away and say, "same old magic."
54:3  They rejected the truth and followed their desires. But everything has its time.
54:4  Stories to warn them have already come, that should have restrained them.
54:5  Profound Wisdom, yet these warnings had no effect.
54:6  So, turn away from them. The Day the Caller calls to something terrible,
54:7  with their eyes humbled, they will emerge from the graves as if they were swarming locusts,
54:8  scrambling towards the Caller. The unbelievers will cry, "This is a disastrous Day."
54:9  Before them the people of Noah rejected the truth, they rejected Our servant saying, "A madman," and he was rebuked.
54:10  So he called upon his Lord, "I am overwhelmed, [please] help me."
54:11  So We opened the floodgates of heaven with torrential rain,
54:12  made the earth burst with gushing springs, and the waters met for an already destined purpose.
54:13  And We carried him on a craft of planks and nails,
54:14  sailing before our watchful eyes, a reward for him who was rejected.
54:15  We left it as a sign, who then is willing to take it to heart?
54:16  How terrible was My punishment and My warning.
54:17  Hence, We made it easy to understand this Qur'an and to remember it. Who, then, is willing to keep it in mind?
54:18  The people of Aad rejected the truth. How then was My punishment and My warning?
54:19  We unleashed upon them a screaming wind, on a day of continuous catastrophe,
54:20  plucking people away, as if they were trunks of uprooted palm trees.
54:21  How terrible was My punishment and My warning.
54:22  Hence, We made it easy to bear this Qur'an in mind. Who, then, is willing to keep it in mind?
54:23  The people of Thamud rejected the warnings
54:24  They said, "Are we to follow a human being, one of us? We would then be misguided and quite insane.
54:25  Why should he alone from among all of us be chosen to receive the message? He is nothing but 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. Just watch them and be patient.
54:28  Tell them that the water is to be shared between them, with each share equitably apportioned.
54:29  But they called their friend, who dared to slaughter [her].
54:30  How then was My punishment and My warning.
54:31  We released against them a single blast, and they became like crumbling twigs.
54:32  Hence, We made it easy to bear this Qur'an in mind. Who, then, is willing to keep it in mind?
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 before dawn
54:35  as a blessing from us. Thus We reward those who are thankful.
54:36  Lot had already warned them of Our assault, but they dismissed the warning.
54:37  They even lusted for his guest, so We blinded their eyes. "Taste My punishment and [the fulfillment of] My warnings."
54:38  Early morning brought them enduring punishment.
54:39  So taste My punishment [which is the fulfillment of] My warning
54:40  Hence, We made it easy to bear this Qur'an in mind. Who, then, is willing to keep it in mind?
54:41  The people of Pharaoh also received warnings.
54:42  They rejected all Our signs, so We seized them as only the Almighty, the Dominant will
54:43  Are those among you who deny the truth any better than these others, or do you have immunity in the Books?
54:44  Or do they say, "We are united and bound to win"?
54:45  They will all be defeated, and they will turn their backs and flee.
54:46  Rather the Hour is their appointed time and the Hour is more disastrous and bitter.
54:47  Those who force others to reject God's messages are misguided and insane.
54:48  The Day when they are dragged on their faces into the fire: "Taste the scorching touch of Saqar."
54:49  We have created all things in precise measure.
54:50  Our command is but one word, like a twinkling of an eye.
54:51  And We have already destroyed the likes of you. Who, then, is willing to take heed?
54:52  Everything they have done is noted in their records.
54:53  Every action small or big is written down.
54:54  Those who are mindful of God will be among Gardens and rivers,
54:55  In a seat of honor in the presence of a Sovereign who determines all things.
