086.001 By the heaven and the Morning Star
086.002 - Ah, what will tell thee what the Morning Star is!
086.003 - The piercing Star!
086.004 No human soul but hath a guardian over it.
086.005 So let man consider from what he is created.
086.006 He is created from a gushing fluid
086.007 That issued from between the loins and ribs.
086.008 Lo! He verily is Able to return him (unto life)
086.009 On the day when hidden thoughts shall be searched out.
086.010 Then will he have no might nor any helper.
086.011 By the heaven which giveth the returning rain,
086.012 And the earth which splitteth (with the growth of trees and plants)
086.013 Lo! this (Qur'an) is a conclusive word,
086.014 It is no pleasantry.
086.015 Lo! they plot a plot (against thee, O Muhammad)
086.016 And I plot a plot (against them).
086.017 So give a respite to the disbelievers. Deal thou gently with them for a while.
