In the Name of God, the Lord of Grace, the Ever-Merciful. By the heaven and by the night visitor.
Would that you knew what the night visitor is!
It is the star that pierces through darkness.
For every soul there is a guardian who watches over it.
Let man then reflect: of what he is created.
He is created of gushing water;
He issues from between the loins and the chest bones.
God is well able to bring him back [to life].
On the Day when consciences are tried,
man shall be helpless, with no supporter.
By the heaven with its returning rain,
by the earth ever splitting with verdure,
this is surely a decisive word;
it is no idle talk.
They devise many an artful scheme,
but I too have My schemes.
So give respite to the unbelievers; leave them alone for a while.
