1 . By the heaven and the Morning Star
2 . - Ah, what will tell thee what the Morning Star is!
3 . - The piercing Star!
4 . No human soul but hath a guardian over it.
5 . So let man consider from what he is created.
6 . He is created from a gushing fluid
7 . That issued from between the loins and ribs.
8 . Lo! He verily is Able to return him (unto life)
9 . On the day when hidden thoughts shall be searched out.
10 . Then will he have no might nor any helper.
11 . By the heaven which giveth the returning rain,
12 . And the earth which splitteth (with the growth of trees and plants)
13 . Lo! this (Qur´an) is a conclusive word,
14 . It is no pleasantry.
15 . Lo! they plot a plot (against thee, O Muhammad)
16 . And I plot a plot (against them).
17 . So give a respite to the disbelievers. Deal thou gently with them for a while.
