The Hour has drawn near and the moon was split ˹in two˺.1
2
Yet, whenever they see a sign, they turn away,1 saying, “Same old magic!”
3
They rejected ˹the truth˺ and followed their own desires—and every matter will be settled—
4
even though the stories ˹of destroyed nations˺ that have already come to them are a sufficient deterrent.
5
˹This Quran is˺ profound ˹in˺ wisdom, but warnings are of no benefit ˹to them˺.
6
So turn away from them ˹O Prophet˺. ˹And wait for˺ the Day ˹when˺ the caller1 will summon ˹them˺ for something horrifying.2
7
With eyes downcast, they will come forth from the graves as if they were swarming locusts,
8
rushing towards the caller. The disbelievers will cry, “This is a difficult Day!”
9
Before them, the people of Noah denied ˹the truth˺ and rejected Our servant, calling ˹him˺ insane. And he was intimidated.
10
So he cried out to his Lord, “I am helpless, so help ˹me˺!”
11
So We opened the gates of the sky with pouring rain,
12
and caused the earth to burst with springs, so the waters met for a fate already set.
13
We carried him on that ˹Ark made˺ of planks and nails,
14
sailing under Our ˹watchful˺ Eyes—a ˹fair˺ punishment on behalf of the one ˹they˺ denied.
15
We certainly left this1 as a sign. So is there anyone who will be mindful?
16
Then how ˹dreadful˺ were My punishment and warnings!
17
And We have certainly made the Quran easy to remember. So is there anyone who will be mindful?
18
’Ȃd ˹also˺ rejected ˹the truth˺. Then how ˹dreadful˺ were My punishment and warnings!
19
Indeed, We sent against them a furious wind,1 on a day of unrelenting misery,
20
that snatched people up, leaving them like trunks of uprooted palm trees.
21
Then how ˹dreadful˺ were My punishment and warnings!
22
And We have certainly made the Quran easy to remember. So is there anyone who will be mindful?
23
Thamûd rejected the warnings ˹as well˺,
24
arguing, “How can we follow one ˹average˺ human being from among us? We would then truly be misguided and insane.
25
Has the revelation been sent down ˹only˺ to him out of ˹all of˺ us? In fact, he is a boastful liar.”
26
˹It was revealed to Ṣâliḥ,˺ “They will soon know who the boastful liar is.
27
We are sending the she-camel as a test for them. So watch them ˹closely˺, and have patience.
28
And tell them that the ˹drinking˺ water must be divided between them ˹and her˺, each taking a turn to drink ˹every other day˺.”
29
But they roused a companion of theirs, so he dared to kill ˹her˺.
30
Then how ˹dreadful˺ were My punishment and warnings!
31
Indeed, We sent against them ˹only˺ one ˹mighty˺ blast, leaving them like the twigs of fence-builders.
32
And We have certainly made the Quran easy to remember. So is there anyone who will be mindful?
33
The people of Lot ˹also˺ rejected the warnings.
34
We unleashed upon them a storm of stones. As for ˹the believers of˺ Lot’s family, We delivered them before dawn
35
as a blessing from Us. This is how We reward whoever gives thanks.
36
He had already warned them of Our ˹crushing˺ blow but they disputed the warnings.
37
And they even demanded his angel-guests from him,1 so We blinded their eyes. ˹And they were told,˺ “Taste then My punishment and warnings!”
38
And indeed, by the early morning they were overwhelmed by an unrelenting torment.
39
˹Again they were told,˺ “Taste now My punishment and warnings!”
40
And We have certainly made the Quran easy to remember. So is there anyone who will be mindful?
41
And indeed, the warnings ˹also˺ came to the people of Pharaoh.
42
˹But˺ they rejected all of Our signs, so We seized them with the ˹crushing˺ grip of the Almighty, Most Powerful.
43
Now, are you ˹Meccan˺ disbelievers superior to those ˹destroyed peoples˺? Or have you ˹been granted˺ immunity ˹from punishment˺ in divine Books?
44
Or do they say, “We are all ˹a˺ united ˹front˺, bound to prevail.”?
45
˹Soon˺ their united front will be defeated and ˹forced to˺ flee.1
46
Better yet, the Hour is their appointed time—and the Hour will be most catastrophic and most bitter.
47
Indeed, the wicked are ˹entrenched˺ in misguidance, and ˹are bound for˺ blazes.
48
On the Day they will be dragged into the Fire on their faces, ˹they will be told,˺ “Taste the touch of Hell!”1
49
Indeed, We have created everything, perfectly preordained.
50
Our command1 is but a single word,2 done in the blink of an eye.
51
We have already destroyed the likes of you. So will any ˹of you˺ be mindful?
52
Everything they have done is ˹listed˺ in ˹their˺ records.
53
Every matter, small and large, is written ˹precisely˺.
54
Indeed, the righteous will be amid Gardens and rivers,1
55
at the Seat of Honour in the presence of the Most Powerful Sovereign.
