86:1  BY the heaven, and by the NIGHT-COMER
86:2  But who shall teach thee what the night-comer is
86:3  'Tis the star of piercing radiance
86:4  Over every soul is set a guardian
86:5  Let man then reflect out of what he was created
86:6  He was created of the poured-forth germs
86:7  Which issue from the loins and breastbones
86:8  Well able then is God to restore him to life,
86:9  On the day when all secrets shall be searched out
86:10  And he shall have no other might or helper
86:11  I swear by the heaven which accomplisheth its cycle
86:12  And by the earth which openeth her bosom
86:13  That this Koran is a discriminating discourse
86:14  And that it is not frivolous
86:15  They plot a plot against thee
86:16  And I will plot a plot against them
86:17  Deal calmly therefore with the infidels; leave them awhile alone
