At-Tariq - The Morning Star, The Nightcomer - Meccan

  1. In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

  2. 86:1 By the Sky and the Night-Visitant (therein);-

  3. 86:2 And what will explain to thee what the Night-Visitant is?-

  4. 86:3 (It is) the Star of piercing brightness;-

  5. 86:4 There is no soul but has a protector over it.

  6. 86:5 Now let man but think from what he is created!

  7. 86:6 He is created from a drop emitted-

  8. 86:7 Proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs:

  9. 86:8 Surely (Allah) is able to bring him back (to life)!

  10. 86:9 The Day that (all) things secret will be tested,

  11. 86:10 (Man) will have no power, and no helper.

  12. 86:11 By the Firmament which returns (in its round),

  13. 86:12 And by the Earth which opens out (for the gushing of springs or the sprouting of vegetation),-

  14. 86:13 Behold this is the Word that distinguishes (Good from Evil):

  15. 86:14 It is not a thing for amusement.

  16. 86:15 As for them, they are but plotting a scheme,

  17. 86:16 And I am planning a scheme.

  18. 86:17 Therefore grant a delay to the Unbelievers: Give respite to them gently (for awhile).
