86. The Morning Star | at-Tariq

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

[86:1] I swear by the sky and by the Night-Comer,__
[86:2] __and what may let you know what the Night-Comer is?
[86:3] The star of piercing brightness!_ _
[86:4] __there is no human being, but there is a watcher over him.
[86:5] So, let man consider of which stuff he is created.
[86:6] He is created of spouting water.
[86:7] that comes out from between the loins and the chest-bones.
[86:8] Surely He is Powerful to bring him back.
[86:9] on a day when all the secrets will be searched out,
[86:10] and he will have neither strength (to defend), nor a supporter.
[86:11] I swear by the sky that rains,
[86:12] and the earth that cracks open (for plants),
[86:13] this is a decisive word,
[86:14] and it is not a joke.
[86:15] They are devising plans,
[86:16] and I Am devising plans.
[86:17] So leave the disbelievers alone at the moment; give them respite for a while.
