In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1 . The hour drew nigh and the moon was rent in twain .
2 . And if they behold a portent they turn away and say : Prolonged illusion .
3 . They denied ( the Truth ) and followed their own lusts . Yet everything will come to a decision
4 . And surely there hath come unto them news whereof the purport should deter ,
5 . Effective wisdom ; but warnings avail not .
6 . So withdraw from them ( O Muhammad ) on the day when the Summoner summoneth unto a painful thing .
7 . With downcast eyes , they come forth from the graves as they were locusts spread abroad ,
8 . Hastening toward the Summoner ; the disbelievers say : This is a hard day .
9 . The folk of Noah denied before them , yea , they denied Our slave and said : A madman ; and he was repulsed .
10 . So he cried unto his Lord , saying : I am vanquished , so give help .
11 . Then opened We the gates of heaven with pouring water
12 . And caused the earth to gush forth springs , so that the waters met for a predestined purpose .
13 . And We carried him upon a thing of planks and nails ,
14 . That ran ( upon the waters ) in Our sight , as a reward for him who was rejected .
15 . And verily We left it as a token ; but is there any that remembereth?
16 . Then see how ( dreadful ) was My punishment after My warnings!
17 . And in truth We have made the Quran easy to remember ; but is there any that remembered?
18 . ( The tribe of ) Aad rejected warnings . Then how dreadful ) was My punishment after My warnings .
19 . Lo! We let loose on them a raging wind on a day of constant calamity ,
20 . Sweeping men away as though they were uprooted trunks of palm trees .
21 . Then see how ( dreadful ) was My punishment after My warnings!
22 . And in truth We have made the Quran easy to remember ; but is there any that remembereth?
23 . ( The tribe of ) Thamud rejected warnings
24 . For they said : Is it a mortal man , alone among us , that we are to follow? Then indeed we should fall into error and madness .
25 . Hath the remembrance been given unto him alone among us? Nay , but he is a rash liar .
26 . ( Unto their warner it was said ) : Tomorrow they will know who is the rash liar .
27 . Lo! We are sending the she camel as a test for them ; so watch them and have patience ;
28 . And inform them that the water is to be shared between ( her and ) them . Every drinking will be witnessed .
29 . But they called their comrade and he took and hamstrung ( her ) .
30 . Then see how ( dreadful ) was My punishment after My warnings!
31 . Lo! We sent upon them one Shout , and they became as the dry twigs ( rejected by ) the builder of a cattle fold .
32 . And in truth We have made the Quran easy to remember ; but is there any that remembereth?
33 . The folk of Lo! rejected warnings .
34 . Lo! We sent a storm of stones upon them ( all ) save the family of Lot , whom We rescued in the last watch of the night ,
35 . As grace from Us . Thus We reward him who giveth thanks .
36 . And he indeed had warned them of Our blow , but they did doubt the warnings .
37 . They even asked of him his guests for an ill purpose . Then We blinded their eyes ( and said ) : Taste now My punishment after My warnings!
38 . And in truth the punishment decreed befell them early in the morning .
39 . Now taste My punishment after My warnings!
40 . And in truth We have made the Quran easy to remember ; but is there any that remembereth?
41 . And warnings came in truth unto the house of Pharaoh
42 . Who denied Our revelations , every one . Therefore We grasped them with the grasp of the Mighty , the Powerful .
43 . Are your disbelievers better than those , or have ye some immunity in the Scriptures?
44 . Or say they : We are a host victorious?
45 . The hosts will all be routed and will turn and flee .
46 . Nay , but the Hour ( of doom ) is their appointed tryst , and the Hour will be more wretched and more bitter ( than their earthly failure ) .
47 . Lo! the guilty are in error and madness .
48 . On the day when they are dragged into the Fire upon their faces ( it is said unto them ) : Feel the touch of hell .
49 . Lo! We have created every thing by measure .
50 . And Our commandment is but one ( commandment ) , as the twinkling of an eye .
51 . And verily We have destroyed your fellows ; but is there any that remembereth?
52 . And every thing they did is in the Scriptures ,
53 . And every small and great thing is recorded .
54 . Lo! the righteous will dwell among gardens and rivers ,
55 . Firmly established in the favor of a Mighty King .
