القمر

٢١

فَكَيْفَ كَانَ عَذَابِي وَنُذُرِ

Then see how (dreadful) was My punishment after My warnings!

٢٢

وَلَقَدْ يَسَّرْنَا الْقُرْآنَ لِلذِّكْرِ فَهَلْ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ

And in truth We have made the Qur'an easy to remember; but is there any that remembereth?

٢٣

كَذَّبَتْ ثَمُودُ بِالنُّذُرِ

(The tribe of) Thamud rejected warnings

٢٤

فَقَالُوا أَبَشَرًا مِّنَّا وَاحِدًا نَّتَّبِعُهُ إِنَّا إِذًا لَّفِي ضَلَالٍ وَسُعُرٍ

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.

٢٥

أَأُلْقِيَ الذِّكْرُ عَلَيْهِ مِن بَيْنِنَا بَلْ هُوَ كَذَّابٌ أَشِرٌ

Hath the remembrance been given unto him alone among us? Nay, but he is a rash liar.

٢٦

سَيَعْلَمُونَ غَدًا مَّنِ الْكَذَّابُ الْأَشِرُ

(Unto their warner it was said): To-morrow they will know who is the rash liar.

٢٧

إِنَّا مُرْسِلُو النَّاقَةِ فِتْنَةً لَّهُمْ فَارْتَقِبْهُمْ وَاصْطَبِرْ

Lo! We are sending the she-camel as a test for them; so watch them and have patience;

٢٨

وَنَبِّئْهُمْ أَنَّ الْمَاءَ قِسْمَةٌ بَيْنَهُمْ ۖ كُلُّ شِرْبٍ مُّحْتَضَرٌ

And inform them that the water is to be shared between (her and) them. Every drinking will be witnessed.

٢٩

فَنَادَوْا صَاحِبَهُمْ فَتَعَاطَىٰ فَعَقَرَ

But they call their comrade and he took and hamstrung (her).

٣٠

فَكَيْفَ كَانَ عَذَابِي وَنُذُرِ

Then see how (dreadful) was My punishment after My warnings!
