Safi Kaskas rendition of Surah The Moon(al-Qamar)
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.
