054 - Soorah al-Qamar - (The Moon) - [Makkee]
[054:007] They will come forth, with humbled eyes from (their) graves as if they were locusts spread abroad,
[054:008] Hastening towards the caller. The disbelievers will say: "This is a hard Day."
[054:009] The people of Nūh (Noah) denied (their Messenger) before them. They rejected Our slave, and said: "A madman!" and he was insolently rebuked and threatened.
[054:010] Then he invoked his Lord (saying): "I have been overcome, so help (me)!"
[054:011] So, We opened the gates of the heaven with water pouring forth.
[054:012] And We caused springs to gush forth from the earth. So, the waters (of the heaven and the earth) met for a matter predestined.
[054:013] And We carried him on a (ship) made of planks and nails,
[054:014] Floating under Our Eyes, a reward for him who had been rejected!
[054:015] And indeed, We have left this as a sign. Then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)?
[054:016] Then how (terrible) was My torment and My Warnings?
[054:017] And We have indeed made the Qur'ān easy to understand and remember; then is there anyone who will remember (or receive admonition)?
[054:018] 'Ād (people) denied (their Prophet, Hūd); then how (terrible) was My torment and My Warnings?
[054:019] Verily, We sent against them a furious wind of harsh voice on a day of evil omen and continuous calamity.
[054:020] Plucking out men as if they were uprooted stems of date palms.
[054:021] Then, how (terrible) was My torment and My Warnings?
[054:022] And We have indeed made the Qur'ān easy to understand and remember; then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)?
[054:023] Thamūd (people also) denied the warnings.
[054:024] And they said: "A man, alone among us shall we follow him? Truly, then we should be in error and distress (or madness)!"
[054:025] "Is it that the Reminder is sent to him (Prophet Sālih ['alayhis-salām]) alone from among us? Nay, he is an insolent liar!"
[054:026] Tomorrow they will come to know who is the liar, the insolent one!
[054:027] Verily, We are sending the she-camel as a test for them. So watch them (O Sālih ['alayhis-salām]), and be patient!
