86:1  By the Sky and the Night-Visitant (therein);
86:2  And what will explain to thee what the Night-Visitant is?
86:3  (It is) the Star of piercing brightness;
86:4  There is no soul but has a protector over it
86:5  Now let man but think from what he is created
86:6  He is created from a drop emitted
86:7  Proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs
86:8  Surely (Allah) is able to bring him back (to life)
86:9  The Day that (all) things secret will be tested
86:10  (Man) will have no power, and no helper
86:11  By the Firmament which returns (in its round)
86:12  And by the Earth which opens out (for the gushing of springs or the sprouting of vegetation),
86:13  Behold this is the Word that distinguishes (Good from Evil)
86:14  It is not a thing for amusement
86:15  As for them, they are but plotting a scheme
86:16  And I am planning a scheme
86:17  Therefore grant a delay to the Unbelievers: Give respite to them gently (for awhile)
