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.
