Juz 30
The Comet (Al-Taareq)
17 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Town (Al-Balad) before The Moon (Al-Qamar)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
I CALL TO witness the heavens and the night Star -- (1) And what shall teach thee what is the night-star? (2) It is the star that shines with a piercing brightness -- (3) There is not a soul that does not have a guardian over it. (4) So let man consider of what he was created; (5) he has been created out of a seminal fluid (6) Proceeding from between the back-bone and the ribs, (7) Verily He is Able to restore him, (8) On a Day whereon secrets shall be out. (9) So man will neither have any strength nor any aide. (10) By the heaven which giveth the returning rain, (11) And the earth which opens up (with verdure), (12) Behold this is the Word that distinguishes (Good from Evil): (13) and is no idle tale. (14) Surely they will make a scheme, (15) And I secretly plan. (16) So grant the unbelievers a respite: let them alone for a while. (17)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
