CONSIDER the heavens and that which comes in the night!1
2
And what could make thee conceive what it is that comes in the night?
3
It is the star that pierces through [life's] darkness:
4
[for] no human being has ever been left unguarded.2
5
LET MAN, then, observe out of what he has been created:
6
he has been created out of a seminal fluid
7
issuing from between the loins [of man] and the pelvic arch [of woman].3
8
Now, verily, He [who thus creates man in the first instance] is well able to bring him back [to life]
9
on the Day when all secrets will be laid bare,
10
and [man] will have neither strength nor helper!
11
Consider4 the heavens, ever-revolving,
12
and the earth, bursting forth with plants!
13
BEHOLD, this [divine writ] is indeed a word that cuts between truth and falsehood,5
14
and is no idle tale.
15
Behold, they [who refuse to accept it] devise marry a false argument6 [to disprove its truth];
16
but I shall bring all their scheming to nought.7
17
Let, then, the deniers of the truth have their will: let them have their will for a little while!
