1- The Hour (of Judgment) is nigh, and the moon is cleft asunder.
2- But if they see a Sign, they turn away, and say, “This is (but) transient magic.”
3- They reject (the warning) and follow their (own) lusts but every matter has its appointed time.
4- There have already come to them Recitals wherein there is (enough) to check (them),
5- Mature wisdom; -but (the preaching of) Warners profits them not.
6- Therefore, (O Prophet), turn away from them. They Day that the Caller will call (them) to a terrible affair,
7- They will come forth, -their eyes humbled – from (their) graves, (torpid) like locusts scattered abroad,
8- Hastening, with eyes transfixed, towards the Caller!- “Hard is this Day!”, the Unbelievers will say.
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.
10- Then he called on his Lord: “I am one overcome: do Thou then help (me)!”
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.
13- But We bore him on an (Ark) make of broad planks and caulked with palm-fibre:
14- She floats under our eyes (and care): a recompense to one who had been rejected (with scron)!
15- And We have left this as a Sign (for all time): then is there any that will receive admonition?
16- But how (terrible) was May Penalty and My Warning?
17- And We have indeed made the Quran easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition?
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,
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!
22- But We have indeed made the Quran easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition?
23- The Thamud (also) rejected (their) Warners.
