54:1  The Hour has drawn near, and the moon has split.
54:2  Yet, when they witness a sign, they turn away and say, “Continuous magic.”
54:3  They deny and follow their whims, but every issue will be resolved.
54:4  Numerous warnings have come to them, with messages of deterrence.
54:5  Profound wisdom, but the warnings are of no avail.
54:6  So, withdraw from them. The Day the Caller calls to a terrible thing.
54:7  Their eyes humbled, they will emerge from the graves, as if they were locusts spreading.
54:8  Rushing towards the Caller. The unbelievers will say, “This is a difficult day.”
54:9  The people of Noah denied before them. They denied Our servant and said, “A madman,” and he was rebuked.
54:10  So, he appealed to his Lord: “I am defeated, so help!”
54:11  Then We opened the doors of the sky with pouring water.
54:12  And We burst the earth with springs, and the waters converged for a purpose predestined.
54:13  And We carried him on a construction of planks and nails.
54:14  Sailing under Our observation—a recompense for him who had been rejected.
54:15  We left it as a sign. Is there anyone who will take notice?
54:16  So, how were My punishment and warnings?
54:17  We made the Quran easy to learn. Is there anyone who will learn?
54:18  Aad denied the truth. So, how were My punishment and warnings?
54:19  We unleashed upon them a screaming wind, on a day of continuous misfortune.
54:20  Plucking people up, as if they were trunks of palm trees uprooted.
54:21  So, how were My punishment and warnings?
54:22  We made the Quran easy to remember. Is there anyone who will remember?
54:23  Thamud rejected the warnings.
54:24  They questioned, “Are we to follow one man from among us? Surely, we would then be in error and insanity.
54:25  Was the message sent to him alone among us? He is 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. So, observe them and be patient.
54:28  And inform them that the water is to be shared among them, with each drink at appointed times.
54:29  Yet, they called their companion, and he dared and hamstrung.
54:30  So, how were My punishment and warnings?
54:31  We sent them a single shriek, and they became like crushed trampled straw.
54:32  We made the Quran easy to understand. Is there anyone who will understand?
54:33  The people of Lot denied the warnings.
54:34  We rained upon them a shower of stones, except for the family of Lot, We saved them early morning.
54:35  As a blessing from Us. Thus, do We reward those who give thanks.
54:36  He had warned them of Our onslaught, but they disputed the warnings.
54:37  They even lusted after his guests, so We obliterated their eyes. “Taste My punishment and warnings.”
54:38  Morning brought them unrelenting suffering.
54:39  So taste My punishment and warnings.
54:40  We made the Quran easy to memorize. Is there anyone who will memorize?
54:41  And warnings came to Pharaoh’s family.
54:42  They rejected all Our signs, so We seized them with the grip of an Almighty Omnipotent.
54:43  Are your unbelievers better than these? Or do you have immunity in the Scriptures?
54:44  Or do they say, “We are a united multitude, bound for victory”?
54:45  The multitude will be defeated, and they will turn their backs and flee.
54:46  Their appointed moment is the Hour. The Hour is most catastrophic and bitter.
54:47  The criminals are in disarray and madness.
54:48  On that Day, they will be dragged, face-down, into the Fire: “Taste the touch of Saqar.”
54:49  We created everything according to a precise measure.
54:50  Our command is but one, like a twinkling of an eye.
54:51  We’ve destroyed your likes. Is there anyone who will reflect?
54:52  And everything they’ve done is in the records.
54:53  Every minor and major detail is written down.
54:54  The righteous will be in gardens and rivers.
54:55  In a seat of truth, in the presence of an Omnipotent King.
