Muhammad Asad rendition of Surah The Morning Star, The Nightcomer(at-Tariq)
86:1 CONSIDER the heavens and that which comes in the night!
86:2 And what could make thee conceive what it is that comes in the night?
86:3 It is the star that pierces through [life's] darkness:
86:4 [for] no human being has ever been left unguarded.
86:5 LET MAN, then, observe out of what he has been created:
86:6 he has been created out of a seminal fluid
86:7 issuing from between the loins [of man] and the pelvic arch [of woman].
86:8 Now, verily, He [who thus creates man in the first instance] is well able to bring him back [to life]
86:9 on the Day when all secrets will be laid bare,
86:10 and [man] will have neither strength nor helper!
86:11 Consider the heavens, ever-revolving,
86:12 and the earth, bursting forth with plants!
86:13 BEHOLD, this [divine writ] is indeed a word that between truth and falsehood,
86:14 and is no idle tale.
86:15 Behold, they [who refuse to accept it] devise many a false argument [to disprove its truth];
86:16 but I shall bring all their scheming to nought.
86:17 Let, then, the deniers of the truth have their will: let them have their will for a little while.
