وَٱلسَّمَآءِ وَٱلطَّارِقِ

And (by) the heaven and the Night Visitant! (Or: "The Morning Star; literally: The Rapper).

وَمَآ أَدۡرَىٰكَ مَا ٱلطَّارِقُ

And what makes you realize what the Night Visitant is? (Or: "The Morning Star; literally: The Rapper).

ٱلنَّجۡمُ ٱلثَّاقِبُ

The Piercing Star!

إِن كُلُّ نَفۡسٖ لَّمَّا عَلَيۡهَا حَافِظٞ

Decidedly over every self there is assuredly a Preserver.

فَلۡيَنظُرِ ٱلۡإِنسَٰنُ مِمَّ خُلِقَ

So let man look into what he was created from;

خُلِقَ مِن مَّآءٖ دَافِقٖ

He was created from effusive water,

يَخۡرُجُ مِنۢ بَيۡنِ ٱلصُّلۡبِ وَٱلتَّرَآئِبِ

Going out between the loins (Or: backbone) and the breastbones.

إِنَّهُۥ عَلَىٰ رَجۡعِهِۦ لَقَادِرٞ

Surely He is indeed Determiner over his return (to life).

يَوۡمَ تُبۡلَى ٱلسَّرَآئِرُ

On the Day when secret thoughts and actions are tried,

فَمَا لَهُۥ مِن قُوَّةٖ وَلَا نَاصِرٖ

Then in no way will he have any power or any vindicator.

وَٱلسَّمَآءِ ذَاتِ ٱلرَّجۡعِ

By the heaven comprising the returning (rain) (Or: the rotating rain),

وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ ذَاتِ ٱلصَّدۡعِ

And by the earth comprising crevices (producing verdure),

إِنَّهُۥ لَقَوۡلٞ فَصۡلٞ

Surely (the Qur'an) is indeed a Verdict address (Literally: a decisive Saying).

وَمَا هُوَ بِٱلۡهَزۡلِ

And in no way is it mere joking.

إِنَّهُمۡ يَكِيدُونَ كَيۡدٗا

Surely they are plotting (evil) plots,

وَأَكِيدُ كَيۡدٗا

And I am plotting (vengeful) plots.

فَمَهِّلِ ٱلۡكَٰفِرِينَ أَمۡهِلۡهُمۡ رُوَيۡدَۢا

So give the disbelievers (more) leisure; give them leisure awhile.
