86 THE NIGHT STAR (1 – 17)

In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

By heaven and the night-star! And what shall teach thee what is the night-star? The piercing star! Over every soul there is a watcher.

5So let man consider of what he was created; he was created of gushing water issuing between the loins and the breast-bones. Surely He is able to bring him back upon the day when the secrets are tried, 10and he shall have no strength, no helper.

By heaven of the returning rain, by earth splitting with verdure, surely it is a decisive word; it is no merriment.

15They are devising guile, and I am devising guile. So respite the unbelievers; delay with them awhile.
