Chapter 86:
Al-Tariq — The Comer by Night:

Revealed at Makkah: 17 verses

English Translation of the Holy Quran by Maulana Muhammad Ali


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

86:1 By the heaven and the Comer by night!

86:2 And what will make thee know what the Comer by night is?

86:3 The star of piercing brightness—

86:4 There is not a soul but over it is a keeper.

86:5 So let man consider of what he is created.

86:6 He is created of water pouring forth,

86:7 Coming from between the back and the ribs.

86:8 Surely He is Able to return him (to life).

86:9 On the day when hidden things are manifested,

86:10 Then he will have no strength nor helper.

86:11 By the cloud giving rain,

86:12 And the earth opening (with herbage)!

86:13 Surely it is a decisive word,

86:14 And it is not a joke.

86:15 Surely they plan a plan,

86:16 And I plan a plan.

86:17 So grant the disbelievers a respite — let them alone for a while.
