بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

1.

وَٱلسَّمَآءِ وَٱلطَّارِقِ

By the Sky and the Night-Visitant (therein) --

2.

وَمَآ أَدۡرَٮٰكَ مَا ٱلطَّارِقُ 

And what will explain to thee what the Night-Visitant is? --

3.

ٱلنَّجۡمُ ٱلثَّاقِبُ 

(It is) the Star of piercing brightness --

4.

إِن كُلُّ نَفۡسٍ۬ لَّمَّا عَلَيۡہَا حَافِظٌ۬ 

There is no soul but has a protector over it.

5.

فَلۡيَنظُرِ ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنُ مِمَّ خُلِقَ 

Now let man but think from what he is created!

6.

خُلِقَ مِن مَّآءٍ۬ دَافِقٍ۬ 

He is created from a drop emitted --

7.

يَخۡرُجُ مِنۢ بَيۡنِ ٱلصُّلۡبِ وَٱلتَّرَآٮِٕبِ 

Proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs:

8.

إِنَّهُ ۥ عَلَىٰ رَجۡعِهِۦ لَقَادِرٌ۬ 

Surely (Allah) is able to bring him back (to life)!

9.

يَوۡمَ تُبۡلَى ٱلسَّرَآٮِٕرُ 

The Day that (all) things secret will be tested.

10.

فَمَا لَهُ ۥ مِن قُوَّةٍ۬ وَلَا نَاصِرٍ۬  

(Man) will have no power, and no helper.

11.

وَٱلسَّمَآءِ ذَاتِ ٱلرَّجۡعِ 

By the Firmament which returns (in its round) --

12.

وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ ذَاتِ ٱلصَّدۡعِ 

And by the Earth which opens out (for the gushing of springs or the sprouting of vegetation) --

13.

إِنَّهُ ۥ لَقَوۡلٌ۬ فَصۡلٌ۬ 

Behold this is the Word that distinguishes (Good from Evil):

14.

وَمَا هُوَ بِٱلۡهَزۡلِ 

It is not a thing for amusement.

15.

إِنَّہُمۡ يَكِيدُونَ كَيۡدً۬ا 

As for them, they are but plotting a scheme,

16.

وَأَكِيدُ كَيۡدً۬ا 

And I am planning a scheme,

17.

فَمَهِّلِ ٱلۡكَـٰفِرِينَ أَمۡهِلۡهُمۡ رُوَيۡدَۢا 

Therefore grant a delay to the unbelievers: Give respite to them gently (for a while).
