القمر

١

اقْتَرَبَتِ السَّاعَةُ وَانشَقَّ الْقَمَرُ

The hour drew nigh and the moon was rent in twain.

٢

وَإِن يَرَوْا آيَةً يُعْرِضُوا وَيَقُولُوا سِحْرٌ مُّسْتَمِرٌّ

And if they behold a portent they turn away and say: Prolonged illusion.

٣

وَكَذَّبُوا وَاتَّبَعُوا أَهْوَاءَهُمْ ۚ وَكُلُّ أَمْرٍ مُّسْتَقِرٌّ

They denied (the Truth) and followed their own lusts. Yet everything will come to a decision

٤

وَلَقَدْ جَاءَهُم مِّنَ الْأَنبَاءِ مَا فِيهِ مُزْدَجَرٌ

And surely there hath come unto them news whereof the purport should deter,

٥

حِكْمَةٌ بَالِغَةٌ ۖ فَمَا تُغْنِ النُّذُرُ

Effective wisdom; but warnings avail not.

٦

فَتَوَلَّ عَنْهُمْ ۘ يَوْمَ يَدْعُ الدَّاعِ إِلَىٰ شَيْءٍ نُّكُرٍ

So withdraw from them (O Muhammad) on the day when the Summoner summoneth unto a painful thing.

٧

خُشَّعًا أَبْصَارُهُمْ يَخْرُجُونَ مِنَ الْأَجْدَاثِ كَأَنَّهُمْ جَرَادٌ مُّنتَشِرٌ

With downcast eyes, they come forth from the graves as they were locusts spread abroad,

٨

مُّهْطِعِينَ إِلَى الدَّاعِ ۖ يَقُولُ الْكَافِرُونَ هَٰذَا يَوْمٌ عَسِرٌ

Hastening toward the summoner; the disbelievers say: This is a hard day.

٩

كَذَّبَتْ قَبْلَهُمْ قَوْمُ نُوحٍ فَكَذَّبُوا عَبْدَنَا وَقَالُوا مَجْنُونٌ وَازْدُجِرَ

The folk of Noah denied before them, yea, they denied Our slave and said: A madman; and he was repulsed.

١٠

فَدَعَا رَبَّهُ أَنِّي مَغْلُوبٌ فَانتَصِرْ

So he cried unto his Lord, saying: I am vanquished, so give help.
