In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
إِن كُلُّ نَفۡسٖ لَّمَّا عَلَيۡهَا حَافِظٞ4 4
Every human being has a protector (i.e. angel) appointed over him (who guards him and records his deeds). (Note just as the stars in the heavens are fully protected though they appear at night only, similarly the deeds of a person are fully protected though they will appear in the Hereafter).I
فَلۡيَنظُرِ ٱلۡإِنسَٰنُ مِمَّ خُلِقَ5 5

إِنَّهُۥ عَلَىٰ رَجۡعِهِۦ لَقَادِرٞ8 8
(Hence, if Allah can create a man from drops of worthless water) He is, then, indeed, Able to bring him back to life.
فَمَا لَهُۥ مِن قُوَّةٖ وَلَا نَاصِرٖ10 10
Then he will have no power (to oppose), nor any helper (to get rid of the punishment).
وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ ذَاتِ ٱلصَّدۡعِ12 12
And by the earth which splits (at the time of growth of the plants).
إِنَّهُۥ لَقَوۡلٞ فَصۡلٞ13 13
Indeed, it (i.e. Quran) makes absolute distinction (between truth and falsehood).
وَأَكِيدُ كَيۡدٗا16 16
[O Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)! don’t worry.] I am also making a strategy (against the disbelievers).
