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 Gracious, Most Merciful
CONSIDER the heavens and that which comes in the night! (1) And what will make you to know what At-Tariq (night-comer) is? (2) It is the piercing star. (3) There is not a soul that does not have a guardian over it. (4) So let man consider of what he is created: (5) He is created from a water dripping, (6) issuing from between the backbone and the breastbone: (7) Surely (Allah) is able to bring him back (to life)! (8) The day all secrets are examined (9) Then will (man) have no power, nor any helper. (10) By the rotating heavens (11) And [by] the earth which cracks open, (12) this (Qur'an) is surely a decisive Word, (13) And it is not a thing for amusement. (14) They are devising a guile, (15) but I shall bring all their scheming to nought. (16) Therefore grant a delay to the Unbelievers: Give respite to them gently (for awhile). (17)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
