By the heaven and that which comes at night.
What enables you to perceive what it is that comes at night?
It is the bright piercing star.
There is not a soul but over it is a guardian.
Let human, then, consider from what he has been created.
He has been created from some of a lowly fluid gushing forth.
It proceeds (as a result of incitement) between the (lumbar zone in the) vertebra and the ribs.
Surely He (Who has created human from a lowly fluid) is able to restore him (to life after his death)
On the Day when all things (that remained or were kept) secret will be made manifest;
And he will have no power, nor a helper (against God’s punishment).
I swear by the heaven ever-revolving (with whatever is in it and recurring patterns of rainfall),
And by the earth, bursting (with the growth of plants):
Surely it (the Qur’an) is a decisive Word distinguishing (between truth and falsehood).
It is not (a word) in jest.
They (who reject it) are busy making schemes;
And I am "making a scheme."
So let the unbelievers remain at will; let them continue to remain at will for a little while.
