In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
SECTION: 1
The Hour of Doom is drawing near, the moon has split asunder; which is a clear proof that the same thing can happen to the earth.[1] Yet when they see a sign, the unbelievers turn their backs and say: “This is an ingenious magic."[2] They deny this and keep on following their own fancies. Ultimately every matter shall be laid to rest.[3] There has already come to them the information of former nations containing enough deterrents[4] and profound wisdom to serve as a warning, but warnings are of no use to these people.[5] Therefore, O Prophet, let them be. On the Day when the caller will call them to a terrible event.[6] They shall come out from their graves, like swarming locusts, with downcast eyes,[7] rushing towards the caller and the same unbelievers will cry: “This is indeed an awful Day!”[8]

54:[1-8]


The Day of Judgment is drawing near yet the unbelievers are not paying heed to the signs of Allah

Long before them, the people of Nüh (Noah) disbelieved. They rejected Our servant, called him a madman and drove him out.[9] After admonishing the people for 950 years, finally he cried out: “Help me, O Rabb, I have been overcome!”[10] So We opened the gates of heaven with pouring rain[11] and caused the earth to burst with gushing springs, and the waters met to fulfill the decreed end.[12] We carried him in an Ark built with planks and nails,[13] which drifted on under Our care: a reward for him (Noah) who was denied by the unbelievers.[14] We have left that Ark as a sign, so is there any who would take admonition?[15] How terrible was My scourge and how clear My warning![16] We have indeed made the Qur’an very easy to understand the admonition: but is there any who would take admonition?[17] Likewise the people of 'Ad did not believe then how terrible was My scourge and how clear My Warning![18] We let loose on them a tornado, on the day of their bitter misfortune,[19] which snatched them off like trunks of uprooted palm-trees.[20] How terrible was My scourge and how clear My warning![21] We have indeed made the Qur’an very easy to understand the admonition, so is there any who would take admonition?[22]

54:[9-22]

We have made the Qur'an easy to understand the admonition, so is there any who would take the admonition?

SECTION: 2
The people of Thamüd disbelieved Our warning,[23] saying: "Are we to follow a human who stands alone among us? That would surely be an error and madness.[24] Was he the only person among us to receive this warning? Nay! He is indeed an insolent liar."[25] To Our Rasool Saleh, We said: “Tomorrow they shall find out who is an insolent liar.[26] We are going to send the she-camel as a trial for them. Therefore, watch them and have patience.[27] Tell them that the water must be shared between them and the she-camel, and each will come to the water at its own turn.[28] At last the people of Thamüd called out to one of their companions, who took the responsibility and hamstrung her.[29] Then how terrible was My scourge and how clear My warning![30] We let loose on them one mighty blast and they became like the trampled twigs used by a fence builder.[31] We have indeed made the Qur’an very easy to understand the admonition, so is there any who would take admonition?[32] Another example is the people of Lüt (Lot) who disbelieved Our warning.[33] We let loose on them a stone-charged tornado which spared none except Lüt’s household, whom We saved by early dawn[34] through Our grace. Thus do We reward those who give thanks.[35] Lüt did warn them of Our scourge but they doubted his warnings.[36] They even sought to snatch away his guests from him but We blinded their eyes, and said: “Now taste My punishment and the result of disbelieving My warning."[37] At daybreak they were overtaken by a lasting punishment[38] as if to say: "Now taste My punishment and the result of disbelieving My warning."[39] We have indeed made the Qur’an very easy to understand the admonition, so is there any who would take admonition?[40]

54:[23-40]


The story of Thamüd and Lüt who called their Prophet liars, to show how terrible was Allah's scourge and how clear was His warning?

SECTION: 3
My warnings also came to the people of Fir'on (Pharaoh).[41] They disbelieved all Our signs. Consequently, We seized them with a seizure of the Mighty, Powerful.[42] O Qureysh, are your unbelievers better than they were, or have you been granted an immunity in the Sacred Books?[43] Or, do they say: “Acting together, we can defend ourselves?”[44] Soon will their multitude be routed and put to flight.[45] Nay! The Hour of Judgment is the time promised to deal with them. That hour will be the most grievous and bitter.[46] Yet, surely the wicked people persist in error and madness.[47] On that Day when they will be dragged into the fire with their faces downwards, We shall say: "Feel the touch of hell!”[48] Surely We have created everything in perfect ordainment (destiny and purpose).[49] We command but once and Our will is done in the twinkling of an eye.[50] O disbelievers, We have already destroyed many like you. Will you not take admonition?[51] All that they do is being added to their record books:[52] every action, small and big is being noted down.[53] Surely the righteous will be in the midst of gardens and rivers,[54] a place of true honor, in the presence of Almighty Sovereign.[55]

54:[41-55]


People of Fir'on were seized for disbelieving Allah's warning. The same warning has come to you, will you not take admonition?

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* The Day of Judgment is drawing near yet the unbelievers are not paying heed to the signs of Allah
* We have made the Qur’an easy to understand the admonition, so is there any who would take the admonition?
* The story of Thamüd and Lüt who called their Prophet liars to show how terrible was Allah’s scourge and how clear was His warning.
* People of Fir'on were seized for disbelieving Allah’s warning. The same warning has come to you, will you not take admonition?

In this Sürah, the disbelievers of Makkah have been warned about their stubbornness towards the message of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). The amazing and wonderful phenomenon of the splitting of the Moon was a manifest sign of the truth that the Resurrection, of which the Prophet was giving them the news, could take place. The great sphere of the Moon had split into two distinct parts in front of their very eyes. The two parts had separated and receded so much apart from each other that, to the onlookers, one part had appeared on one side of the mountain and the other on the other side of it. Then, in an instant, the two had rejoined. This was manifest proof of the truth that the system of the Universe was neither eternal nor immortal; it could be disrupted. The disbelievers described it as a magical illusion and persisted in their denial. Such people neither believe in the admonition, nor learn a lesson from history, nor affirm faith after witnessing manifest signs with their eyes. They would believe only when resurrection has taken place and they will be rushing out of their graves towards the Summoner on that Day. The stories of the people of Nüh (Noah) and of ‘Ad and Thamüd and of the peoples of Lüt (lot) and the Fir'on (Pharaoh) have been related briefly and they have been reminded of the terrible punishments that these nations suffered when they belied and disregarded the warnings given by the Prophets of Allah.
