Surah At-Tariq (The Night-Comer)


Surah At-Tariq (The Night-Comer) - Aya count 17

وَٱلسَّمَاۤءِ وَٱلطَّارِقِ ﴿١﴾

By the sky and the night comer -

وَمَاۤ أَدۡرَىٰكَ مَا ٱلطَّارِقُ ﴿٢﴾

And what can make you know what is the night comer?

ٱلنَّجۡمُ ٱلثَّاقِبُ ﴿٣﴾

It is the piercing star -

إِن كُلُّ نَفۡسࣲ لَّمَّا عَلَیۡهَا حَافِظࣱ ﴿٤﴾

There is no soul but that it has over it a protector.

فَلۡیَنظُرِ ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنُ مِمَّ خُلِقَ ﴿٥﴾

So let man observe from what he was created.

خُلِقَ مِن مَّاۤءࣲ دَافِقࣲ ﴿٦﴾

He was created from a fluid, ejected,

یَخۡرُجُ مِنۢ بَیۡنِ ٱلصُّلۡبِ وَٱلتَّرَاۤىِٕبِ ﴿٧﴾

Emerging from between the backbone and the ribs.

إِنَّهُۥ عَلَىٰ رَجۡعِهِۦ لَقَادِرࣱ ﴿٨﴾

Indeed, Allah, to return him [to life], is Able.

یَوۡمَ تُبۡلَى ٱلسَّرَاۤىِٕرُ ﴿٩﴾

The Day when secrets will be put on trial,

فَمَا لَهُۥ مِن قُوَّةࣲ وَلَا نَاصِرࣲ ﴿١٠﴾

Then man will have no power or any helper.

وَٱلسَّمَاۤءِ ذَاتِ ٱلرَّجۡعِ ﴿١١﴾

By the sky which returns [rain]

وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ ذَاتِ ٱلصَّدۡعِ ﴿١٢﴾

And [by] the earth which cracks open,

إِنَّهُۥ لَقَوۡلࣱ فَصۡلࣱ ﴿١٣﴾

Indeed, the Qur'an is a decisive statement,

وَمَا هُوَ بِٱلۡهَزۡلِ ﴿١٤﴾

And it is not amusement.

إِنَّهُمۡ یَكِیدُونَ كَیۡدࣰا ﴿١٥﴾

Indeed, they are planning a plan,

وَأَكِیدُ كَیۡدࣰا ﴿١٦﴾

But I am planning a plan.

فَمَهِّلِ ٱلۡكَـٰفِرِینَ أَمۡهِلۡهُمۡ رُوَیۡدَۢا ﴿١٧﴾

So allow time for the disbelievers. Leave them awhile.
