At-Tariq | The Nightcommer

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.
