Sayyid Qutb rendition of Surah The Morning Star, The Nightcomer(at-Tariq)
86:1 By the heaven and by the night visitor.
86:2 Would that you knew what the night visitor is!
86:3 It is the star that pierces through darkness.
86:4 For every soul there is a guardian who watches over it.
86:5 Let man then reflect: of what he is created.
86:6 He is created of gushing water;
86:7 he issues from between the loins and the chest bones.
86:8 God is well able to bring him back [to life].
86:9 On the day when consciences are tried,
86:10 man shall be helpless, with no supporter.
86:11 By the heaven with its returning rain,
86:12 by the earth ever splitting with verdure,
86:13 this is surely a decisive word;
86:14 it is no idle talk.
86:15 They devise many an artful scheme,
86:16 but I too have My schemes.
86:17 So give respite to the unbelievers; leave them alone for a while.
