"He it is Who blesseth you, and His angels (bless you), that He may bring you forth from darkness unto light; and He is ever Merciful to the believers." — Holy Qur'an 33:43


Holy Quran Verses from Yusufali's Translation

Surah Taariq: The Morning Star

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

086.001 By the Sky and the Night-Visitant (therein);-
086.002 And what will explain to thee what the Night-Visitant is?-
086.003 (It is) the Star of piercing brightness;-
086.004 There is no soul but has a protector over it.
086.005 Now let man but think from what he is created!
086.006 He is created from a drop emitted-
086.007 Proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs:
086.008 Surely (God) is able to bring him back (to life)!
086.009 The Day that (all) things secret will be tested,
086.010 (Man) will have no power, and no helper.
086.011 By the Firmament which returns (in its round),
086.012 And by the Earth which opens out (for the gushing of springs or the sprouting of vegetation),-
086.013 Behold this is the Word that distinguishes (Good from Evil):
086.014 It is not a thing for amusement.
086.015 As for them, they are but plotting a scheme,
086.016 And I am planning a scheme.
086.017 Therefore grant a delay to the Unbelievers: Give respite to them gently (for awhile).


Let us pray (Sura 20, Ayat 114) 'Ya Rabbi Zidni Ilma!' ('O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.') and seek spiritual help (ta'yid) to understand our great faith.
