Ayat of the Day: Allah is He Who is the Creator, the One Who brings into existence from nothingness (i.e. the Inventor), the Bestower of Form; (in short,) all Beautiful Names belong to Him alone. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Him, the Lord of Honour, the Most Wise. (al-Hashr, 59:24)

Sura at-Tāriq

(That which seems at night)
Sura : Makki by Tilawat : 86 by Reveal : 36 Ruku` : 1 Ayats : 17 Part No. : 30
In the Name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Ever-Merciful
1. By the (endless expanse and infinite space of) heaven and the Nightly (discernable) Visitant.
2. And what do you know what the Nightly (discernable) Visitant is?
3. (It implies) every heavenly body (be it a star, a planet, or any of the heavenly spheres) which shines and brightens (the space).*
* Al-najm al-thaqib refers also to the chosen Messenger Muhammad (blessings and peace be upon him) who shone as a sirajan munira (luminous lamp), with a sun’s glow, on the horizon of Prophethood, and brightened the universe with the Light of Faith. See: al-Shifa by al-Qadi ‘Iyad.
4. There is no human soul but with a protector (appointed) over it.
5. So man should ponder (and find out) from what substance he has been created.
6. He has been created from the ejaculated fluid (i.e., virile and motile sperm).
7. That proceeds from the middle of the sacrum (and pelvic girdle) and is ejected.
8. Indeed, He has the power to bring it (life) back,
9. The Day when all secrets will be disclosed.
10. Then man will have neither any strength (himself) nor any helper.
11. By the heavenly universe which will regress to its primitive state,
12. And by the earth which will split asunder (and change into dust particles),
13. This is indeed a decisive (i.e., absolute) commandment.
14. And it is no joke!
15. Indeed, they (the disbelievers) are hatching plots.
16. And I am designing My own strategy.
17. So give the disbelievers a respite (for a while, not much); let them relax a little (more).
