The Morning Star
In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful:
By the heaven and the night-visitor!

And what will tell you what the night-visitor is?

The piercing star!

Over every soul there is a keeper.

So let man consider from what he was created.

He was created from a gushing fluid,

issuing from between the loins and the breast-bones.

Assuredly He is able to bring him back

on the day when [all] secrets are inspected,

whereat he will have neither strength, nor any helper.

By the heaven of returns,

and [by] the earth of fissures,

assuredly it is a decisive word,

and it is not a jest.

Indeed they are devising a plot,

and I [too] am devising a plot.

So respite the disbelievers; grant them respite for a little.
