Did you notice?
86:1  By the heaven and the night visitor,
86:2  what will cause thee to recognize what the night visitor is?
86:3  It is the piercing star.
86:4  Truly, every soul has one who guards it.
86:5  So let the human being look on of what he was created.
86:6  He was created of water, that which gushes forth,
86:7  going forth from between the loins and the breast bone.
86:8  Truly, He, in returning him, certainly is One Who Has Power.
86:9  On a Day all secret thoughts will be tried,
86:10  then, there will not be for him any strength nor one who helps.
86:11  By the heaven possessing the returning
86:12  and by the earth splitting with verdure,
86:13  truly, the Quran is a decisive saying
86:14  and it is not for mirth.
86:15  Truly, they are strategizing a strategy.
86:16  And I am strategizing a strategy.
86:17  So respite the ones who are ungrateful! Grant thou them a delay for a while.
