In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.

  14. Each soul will know what it has readied.
  15. I swear by the galaxies.
  16. Precisely running their courses.
  17. And by the night as it recedes.
  18. And by the morn as it breathes.
  19. This is the speech of a noble messenger.
  20. Endowed with power, eminent with the Lord of the Throne.
  21. Obeyed and honest.
  22. Your friend is not possessed.
  23. He saw him on the luminous horizon.
  24. And He does not withhold knowledge of the Unseen.
  25. And it is not the word of an accursed devil.
  26. So where are you heading?
  27. It is only a Reminder to all mankind.
  28. To whoever of you wills to go straight.
  29. But you cannot will, unless Allah wills—The Lord of the Worlds.
