Arthur John Arberry rendition of Surah The Morning Star, The Nightcomer(at-Tariq)
86:1 By heaven and the night-star!
86:2 And what shall teach thee what is the night-star?
86:3 The piercing star!
86:4 Over every soul there is a watcher.
86:5 So let man consider of what he was created;
86:6 he was created of gushing water
86:7 issuing between the loins and the breast-bones.
86:8 Surely He is able to bring him back
86:9 upon the day when the secrets are tried,
86:10 and he shall have no strength, no helper.
86:11 By heaven of the returning rain,
86:12 by earth splitting with verdure,
86:13 surely it is a decisive word;
86:14 it is no merriment.
86:15 They are devising guile,
86:16 and I am devising guile.
86:17 So respite the unbelievers; delay with them awhile.
