Al Tariq (Night Star) (86)- 17

1        By the Sky and the Night-Visitant (therein)

2        And what will explain to thee what the Night-Visitant is?

3        (It is) the Star of piercing brightness

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

5>        Now let man but think from what he is created!

6>        He is created from a drop emitted

7>        Proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs:

8>        Surely (Allah) is able to bring him back (to life)!

9>        The Day that (all) things secret will be tested.

10>        (Man) will have no power and no helper.

11>        By the Firmament which returns (in its round)

12>        And by the Earth which opens out (for the gushing of springs or the sprouting of vegetation)

13>        Behold this is the Word that distinguishes (Good from Evil):

14>        It is not a thing for amusement.

15>        As for them they are but plotting a scheme

16>        And I am planning a scheme

17>        Therefore grant a delay to the unbelievers: Give respite to them gently (for a while).
