The Comet (Al-Taareq)
17 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Town (Al-Balad) before The Moon (Al-Qamar)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
By the heaven and the Morning Star (1) And what will explain to thee what the Night-Visitant is?- (2) It is the piercing star - (3) There is no soul which is not guarded (by the two angels who record all of its deeds). (4) So let man consider of what he was created. (5) He is created from a gushing fluid (6) That is issued from between the backs and the ribs. (7) God has certainly power to bring him back (from the dead). (8) The Day that (all) things secret will be tested, (9) Then man will have no power or any helper. (10) By the heaven with its recurring cycle of rain, (11) And the earth which splits (with the growth of trees and plants), (12) BEHOLD, this [divine writ] is indeed a word that distinguishes between truth and falsehood, (13) and is no idle tale. (14) They are cunningly devising, (15) And I (too) am planning a plan. (16) So grant the unbelievers a respite: let them alone for a while. (17)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
