Verse 86:1

وَالسَّمَآءِ وَالطَّارِقِۙ‏

The sky and the brightest star are witness to what is being said

Verse 86:2

وَمَاۤ اَدۡرٰٮكَ مَا الطَّارِقُۙ‏

And what will enlighten you as to what the Tariq is!

Verse 86:3

النَّجۡمُ الثَّاقِبُۙ‏

The Brightest Star! The noble night-visitant with the Radiant Lamp of the Qur'an in his hand knocking at the doors of minds and hearts, giving light.

Verse 86:4

اِنۡ كُلُّ نَفۡسٍ لَّمَّا عَلَيۡهَا حَافِظٌؕ‏

There is no person without a watch being kept over him. [The Law of Requital is ever-vigilant]

Verse 86:5

فَلۡيَنۡظُرِ الۡاِنۡسَانُ مِمَّ خُلِقَؕ‏

Let the human being, then, consider out of what he has been created. [And realize the common origin of all mankind. Has there not passed over man an era when he was not even worth mentioning? 76:1]

Verse 86:6

خُلِقَ مِنۡ مَّآءٍ دَافِقٍۙ‏

He has been created from turbulent water. [21:30, 24:25]

Verse 86:7

يَّخۡرُجُ مِنۡۢ بَيۡنِ الصُّلۡبِ وَالتَّرَآٮِٕبِؕ‏

That issued from between tough rocks and mingled dust. [Sulb = Hard = Tough = Strong, Rocky, as given in Taajil 'Uroos and Muheet. Turaab = Dust, with Turaaib as its plural in Taajil Urus. Mountains, rocky as pegs, along with the glacier systems and snow tops and sources of rivers, have been described as water reservoirs in many verses: 13:3, 15:19, 31:10, 39:5, 77:27, 79:28- 30, 88:20. For the origin of life on the planet and creation of the human being, including the beginning of life through water, dust, hydrated inorganic matter etc, here are given some important references for the research minded reader: 4:1, 6:2, 6:38, 6:99, 7:11, 11:6, 11:61, 15:26, 21:30, 23:12-14, 24:45, 25:54, 30:20, 31:28, 32:7-9, 35:11, 36:77, 39:6, 40:64-67, 51:49, 53:45, 55:14, 71:14, 76:2-3, 86:5-7, 96:1-2. My rendition of three terms used in 86:6- 7 respectfully differs from other translations. We know how valuable the principle of Tasreef-il-Ayaat is. Now, here are those three terms along with their erroneous translations: - 'Ma-in-Dafiq': A drop emitted, seminal fluid or gushing fluid. - 'Sulb': Man's ribs, man's loins. - 'Turaib': Pelvic arch of woman, back-bone and the ribs, spine and the viscera of man and/or woman, sacrum of man or woman. But keeping in view the lexicon and the Tasreef given above, my humble rendition of these verses is probably more sound and reflects the original magnificence to an extent]

Verse 86:8

اِنَّهٗ عَلٰى رَجۡعِهٖ لَقَادِرٌؕ‏

He (Who has thus created man), is well Able to bring him back.

Verse 86:9

يَوۡمَ تُبۡلَى السَّرَآٮِٕرُۙ‏

On the Day when all secrets will be revealed.

Verse 86:10

فَمَا لَهٗ مِنۡ قُوَّةٍ وَّلَا نَاصِرٍؕ‏

Then he will have no power, nor a helper.
