In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
The day of judgment is drawing near yet the unbelievers ate not paying heed to the signs of Allah
1 The hour (of Judgment) is nigh and the moon is cleft asunder. 5127 5128
2 But if they see a Sign they turn away and say "This is (but) transient magic." 5129
3 They reject (the warning) and follow their (own) lusts but every matter has its appointed time. 5130
4 There have already come to them Recitals wherein there is (enough) to check (them) 5131
5 Mature wisdom but (the preaching of) Warners profits them not.
6 Therefore (O Prophet) turn away from them. The day that the Caller will call (them) to a terrible affair. 5132 5133
7 They will come forth their eyes humbled from (their) graves (torpid) like locusts scattered abroad 5134
8 Hastening with eyes transfixed towards the Caller! "Hard is this Day!" the Unbelievers will say.
We have made the Quran easy to understand the admonition, so is there any who would take the admonition?
9 Before them the People of Noah rejected (their apostle): they rejected Our servant and said "Here is one possessed!" and he was driven out. 5135
10 Then he called on his Lord: "I am one overcome: do thou then help (me)!" 5136
11 So We opened the gates of heaven with water pouring forth.
12 And We caused the earth to gush forth with springs so the waters met (and rose) to the extent decreed. 5137
13 But We bore him on an (Ark) made of broad planks and caulked with palm-fibre: 5138
14 She floats under Our eyes (and care): a recompense to one who had been rejected (with scorn)! 5139
15 And We have left this as a Sign (for all time): then is there any that will receive admonition? 5140 5141
16 But how (terrible) was My Penalty and My Warning? 5142
17 And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition? 5143
18 The `Ad (people) (too) rejected (Truth): then how terrible was my Penalty and my Warning!
19 For We sent against them a furious wind on a Day of violent Disaster 5144
20 Plucking out men as if they were roots of palm-trees torn up (from the ground).
21 Yea how (terrible) was my Penalty and my Warning! 5145
22 But We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition?
Story of Thamud and Lut who called their Prophet liars to show how terrible was Allah's scourge and how clear was His warning?
23 The Thamud (also) rejected (their) Warners.
24 For they said: "what! a man! a solitary one from among ourselves! shall we follow such a one? Truly should we then be straying in mind and mad! 5146 5147
25 "Is it that the Message is sent to him of all people amongst us? Nay he is a liar an insolent one!" 5148
26 Ah! they will know on the morrow which is the liar the insolent one!
27 For We will send the she camel by way of trial for them. So watch them (O Saleh) and possess thyself in patience! 5149
28 And tell them that the water is to be divided between them: each one's right to drink being brought forward (by suitable turns). 5150
29 But they called to their companion and he took a sword in hand and hamstrung (her).
30 Ah! how (terrible) was My Penalty and My Warning!
31 For We sent against them a single Mighty Blast and they became like the dry stubble used by one who pens cattle. 5151 5152
32 And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition?
33 The People of Lut rejected (his) Warning. 5153
34 We sent against them a violent tornado with showers of stones (which destroyed them) except Lut's household: them We delivered by early Dawn 5154
35 As a Grace from Us: Thus do We reward those who give thanks. 5155
36 And (Lut) did warn them of Our Punishment but they disputed about the Warning. 5156
37 And they even sought to snatch away his guests from him but We blinded their eyes. (They heard:) "now taste ye My Wrath and My Warning." 5157
38 Early on the morrow an abiding Punishment seized them:
39 "So taste ye My Wrath and My Warning."
40 And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition?
People of Fir'on were seized for disbelieving Allah's warning The same warning has come to you, will you not take admonition?
41 To the people of Pharaoh too aforetime came Warners (from Allah). 5158
42 The (people) rejected all Our Signs; but We seized them with such Penalty (as comes) from One Exalted in Power able to carry out His Will.
43 Are your Unbelievers (O Quraish) better than they? or have ye an immunity in the Sacred Books? 5159
44 Or do they say: "We acting together can defend ourselves"?
  45 Soon will their multitude be put to flight and they will show their backs.
  46 Nay the Hour (of Judgment) is the time promised them (for their full recompense): And that Hour will be Most grievous and most bitter. 5160
  47 Truly those in sin are the ones straying in mind and mad. 5161
  48 The day they will be dragged through the Fire on their faces (they will hear:) "Taste ye the touch of Hell!" 5162
  49 Verily all things have We created in proportion and measure. 5163
  50 And Our command is but a single (Act) like the twinkling of an eye. 5164
  51 And (oft) in the past have We destroyed gangs like unto you: Then is there any that will receive admonition? 5165 5166
  52 All that they do is noted in (their) Books (of Deeds): 5167
  53 Every matter small and great is on record.
  54 As to the Righteous they will be in the midst of Gardens and Rivers. 5168
  55 In an Assembly of Truth in the Presence of a Sovereign Omnipotent. 5169 5170 5171
