A.L. Bilal Muhammad et al (2018) rendition of Surah The Moon(al-Qamar)
54:1 The Hour is near, and the Moon is cleft asunder.
54:2 But if they see a sign, they turn away and say, “This is a mysterious illusion.”
54:3 They reject it and follow their lusts, but every issue has its appointed time.
54:4 There have already come to them recitals with which there is enough to check them,
54:5 Perfect wisdom, but warners do not profit them.
54:6 Therefore, turn away from them. The day that the caller will call them to a terrible affair,
54:7 They will come forth, their eyes humbled from their graves, torpid like locusts scattered abroad,
54:8 Hastening with eyes transfixed towards the caller. “This is a trying day,” the unbelievers will say.
54:9 Before them the people of Noah rejected it. They rejected Our servant and said, “This one is possessed.” And he was driven out.
54:10 Then he called on his Lord, “I am one overcome, will You help me?”
54:11 So We opened the gates of heaven, with water pouring out.
54:12 And We caused the earth to gush forth with springs, so the waters met and rose to the extent decreed.
54:13 But We bore him on an ark made of broad planks and caulked with palm-fiber.
54:14 It floats under our eyes. A reward for one who had been rejected.
54:15 And We have left it as a sign. Then is there any who will receive advice?
54:16 But how was My penalty and My warning?
54:17 And We have indeed made the Quran intuitive. Then are there any who will receive advice?
54:18 The ‘Ad also rejected it. Then how was My penalty and My warnings?
54:19 For We sent against them a furious wind, on a day of violent disaster,
54:20 Plucking out human beings, as if they were roots of palm trees torn up.
54:21 Yes, how was My penalty and My warning?
54:22 And indeed We have made the Quran intuitive. Then will any experience it?
54:23 The Thamud rejected their warners.
54:24 For they said, “What, a human being, one from among ourselves? Should we follow such a one? Truly we would then be in error, and in madness.
54:25 “Is it that the message is sent to him of all people among us? No, he is a liar, an insolent one.”
54:26 They will know on the morrow, who is the liar, and the insolent one.
54:27 For We will send the she-camel as a trial for them. So watch them, and be patient.
54:28 And tell them that the water is to be divided between them. Each one’s right to drink being brought forward.
54:29 But they called to their companion, and he took a sword in hand, and hamstrung her.
54:30 How was My penalty and My warning?
54:31 For We sent against them a single mighty blast, and they became like the dry stubble used by one who pens livestock.
54:32 And indeed We have made the Quran intuitive. Then will any experience it?
54:33 The people of Lot rejected the warning.
54:34 We sent against them a violent tornado with showers of stones which caused them to perish, except Lot’s household. We delivered them by early dawn,
54:35 As a grace from Us. This is how We reward those who give thanks.
54:36 And Lot warned them of Our punishment, but they disputed about the warning.
54:37 And they even sought to abduct his guests, but We blinded their eyes. Now taste My punishment and My warning.
54:38 Early in the morning an abiding punishment indeed seized them.
54:39 “So taste My punishment and My warning.”
54:40 And indeed We have made the Quran intuitive. Then will any experience it?
54:41 Also to the people of Pharaoh came warners.
54:42 The people rejected all of Our signs, but We seized them with a penalty from One Exalted in Power, able to carry out His will.
54:43 Are your unbelievers better than they are? Or have you immunity in the sacred books?
54:44 Or do they say, “We, acting together, can defend ourselves”?
54:45 Soon will their party be on the retreat, and they will show their backs.
54:46 No, the Hour is the time promised them, and that Hour will be more terrible and most bitter.
54:47 Truly those in sin are the ones straying in mind, and in madness.
54:48 The day they will be dragged through the fire on their faces. Taste the touch of hell.”
54:49 Indeed, We have created all things in due proportion and measure.
54:50 And Our command is only a single act, like the blink of an eye.
54:51 And in the past, We have caused groups like you to perish. Then is there any who will receive advice?
54:52 All that they do is noted in books.
54:53 Every matter, small and great, is on record.
54:54 As for the righteous, they will be in the presence of gardens and rivers,
54:55 In an assembly of truth, in the presence of the Sovereign, Omnipotent.
