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
I CALL TO witness the heavens and the night Star -- (1) What could let you know what the nightly comer is! (2) (It is a nightly radiant star). (3) Over every soul there is a watcher. (4) Let the human being reflect that from what he has been created. (5) He is created from a gushing fluid (6) that issues from between the loins and the ribs. (7) God has all power to resurrect him. (8) on the Day when consciences are examined, (9) he will have no power, nor anyone to help him. (10) By the rotating heavens (11) And by the earth which splitteth, (12) BEHOLD, this [divine writ] is indeed a word that distinguishes between truth and falsehood, (13) and is not to be taken lightly. (14) Verily, they are but plotting a plot (against you O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)). (15) And I secretly 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)
