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 Merciful, the Compassionate
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 star that shines with a piercing brightness -- 3 There is no soul but has a protector over it. 4 So let man see from what he is created! 5 He is created from a gushing fluid 6 issuing from between the backbone and the breastbone: 7 Surely He (the Creator) has the power to bring him back (to life). 8 On the Day when man's deepest secrets shall be put to the test 9 and he shall have no strength, no helper. 10 I swear by the raingiving heavens, 11 and by the earth ever bursting with verdure, 12 That this (Qur'an) is a decisive word 13 and is no idle tale. 14 As for them, they are but plotting a scheme, 15 But I am planning a plan. 16 So leave the unbelievers to themselves; respite 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)
