N J Dawood (2014) rendition of Surah The Morning Star, The Nightcomer(at-Tariq)
86:1 BY THE heaven, and by the nightly visitant!
86:2 Would that you knew what the nightly visitant is!
86:3 It is the star of piercing brightness.
86:4 For every soul there is a guardian.
86:5 Let man reflect from what he is created:
86:6 he was created from an ejaculated fluid
86:7 that issues from between the loins and the ribs.
86:8 Surely He has power to bring him back,
86:9 on the day when consciences are searched.
86:10 Helpless shall he be, with none to succour him.
86:11 By the heaven with its recurring cycles,
86:12 and by the earth, ever bursting with new growth;
86:13 this¹ is a discerning utterance,
86:14 no flippant jest.
86:15 They scheme and scheme:
86:16 and I, too, scheme and scheme.
86:17 Therefore bear with the unbelievers, and let them be awhile.
