John Medows Rodwell rendition of Surah The Morning Star, The Nightcomer(at-Tariq)
86:1 BY the heaven, and by the NIGHT-COMER!
86:2 But who shall teach thee what the night-comer is?
86:3 'Tis the star of piercing radiance.
86:4 Over every soul is set a guardian.
86:5 Let man then reflect out of what he was created.
86:6 He was created of the poured-forth germs,
86:7 Which issue from the loins and breastbones:
86:8 Well able then is God to restore him to life, -
86:9 On the day when all secrets shall be searched out,
86:10 And he shall have no other might or helper.
86:11 I swear by the heaven which accomplisheth its cycle,
86:12 And by the earth which openeth her bosom,
86:13 That this Koran is a discriminating discourse,
86:14 And that it is not frivolous.
86:15 They plot a plot against thee,
86:16 And I will plot a plot against them.
86:17 Deal calmly therefore with the infidels; leave them awhile alone.
