In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

By the steeds (that run) panting (breath)

Striking sparks of fire

And pushing charge to the raid at dawn

Raising dust trailing clouds the while

Cleaving as one through the centre of foe

Truly man is to his Lord ungrateful

And to that (fact) he bears witness

And violent he is in his love of wealth

Does henot know, when that is in the graves is scattered abroad

And that which is (locked in a) mans chest is made manifest

That their Lord has been well aquianted with them, (even to) that day?

Early Makkan Surah revealing the depth and mystery of its language and symbolism in its subject matter of spiritual power and knowledge in contrast to Man's ingratitude, pettiness, helplessness and ignorance
