The Comet (Al-Taareq)
17 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Town (Al-Balad) before The Moon (Al-Qamar)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
By the heaven, and At-Tariq (the night-comer, i.e. the bright star); (1) Do you know what al-tariq is? (2) (It is) the Star of piercing brightness;- (3) That over each soul there is a guardian. (4) Let the human reflect of what he is created. (5) He is created from a gushing fluid (6) that issues from between the loins and the ribs. (7) Now, verily, He [who thus creates man in the first instance] is well able to bring him back [to life] (8) On the day when hidden things shall be made manifest, (9) He will have no strength or helper. (10) By the heavens, ever-revolving, (11) And the earth which splitteth (with the growth of trees and plants) (12) Verily, it is a discourse distinguishing. (13) And it is not a frivolity. (14) As for them, they are but plotting a scheme, (15) And I (too) will make a scheme. (16) So bear with unbelievers with patience, and give them respite for a while. (17)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
