The Comet (Al-Taareq)
17 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Town (Al-Balad) before The Moon (Al-Qamar)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
By heaven and the night-star! (1) Do you know what al-tariq is? (2) (It is) the Star of piercing brightness;- (3) For every soul there is a watcher. (4) Now let man but think from what he is created! (5) he has been created out of a seminal fluid (6) Emerging from between the backbone and the ribs. (7) Surely (Allah) is able to bring him back (to life)! (8) A day when the secrets will be examined. (9) Then man will have no power or any helper. (10) By the sky (having rain clouds) which gives rain, again and again. (11) And the earth which splitteth (with the growth of trees and plants) (12) BEHOLD, this [divine writ] is indeed a word that distinguishes between truth and falsehood, (13) And it is not amusement. (14) They are devising a guile, (15) and I too am devising a guile. (16) So respite the unbelievers; delay with them awhile. (17)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
