Past tense of future events - 54:1 - Similar verses
« on: April 24, 2013, 05:15:46 AM »
54:1: "The Hour (of Judgment) is nigh, and the moon is cleft asunder."

I am trying to find verses in the Quran that are similar to the above. That is, a future event related as though it is happening now or has happened in the past.

I am sure that Joseph Islam related another example either in one of his articles or in this forum, but I can't seem to find that reference again.

Can anyone point me out any similar other reference in the Quran?
