Qur'an - Translation
The Nightly Visitant

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

[86.1] I swear by the heaven and the comer by night;

[86.2] And what will make you know what the comer by night is?

[86.3] The star of piercing brightness;

[86.4] There is not a soul but over it is a keeper.

[86.5] So let man consider of what he is created:

[86.6] He is created of water pouring forth,

[86.7] Coming from between the back and the ribs.

[86.8] Most surely He is able to return him (to life).

[86.9] On the day when hidden things shall be made manifest,

[86.10] He shall have neither strength nor helper.

[86.11] I swear by the rain-giving heavens,

[86.12] And the earth splitting (with plants);

[86.13] Most surely it is a decisive word,

[86.14] And it is no joke.

[86.15] Surely they will make a scheme,

[86.16] And I (too) will make a scheme.

[86.17] So grant the unbelievers a respite: let them alone for a while.
