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 God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
CONSIDER the heavens and that which comes in the night! (1) What could let you know what the nightly comer is! (2) The piercing star! (3) There is no soul which is not guarded (by the two angels who record all of its deeds). (4) So let man consider of what he was created. (5) Created from a gushing fluid. (6) Proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs: (7) Indeed Allah is Able to return him. (8) On the day when hidden things shall be made manifest, (9) he will have no power, nor anyone to help him. (10) By the sky which returns [rain] (11) And the earth which splitteth (with the growth of trees and plants) (12) Indeed the Qur’an is a decisive Word. (13) and it is certainly not a jest. (14) Indeed the disbelievers carry out their evil schemes. (15) But I too am devising a plan. (16) So respite the unbelievers; delay with them awhile. (17)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
End of Surah: The Comet (Al-Taareq). Sent down in Mecca after The Town (Al-Balad) before The Moon (Al-Qamar)
