Sūrat aṭ-Ṭāriq (Arabic: الطارق, “The Piercing Star”, “The Nightcomer”, literally “The Knocker”) is the eighty-sixth sura of the Qur'an with 17 ayat. Muslims believe this chapter was sent to Mohammed when he was in Mecca.
Allah then asks the human beings to think about how they were created. He then goes on to say that he has created human beings from the gushing water flowing between the backbone and the ribs.
Allah then reminds the human beings about the Judgment Day, the day when all the secrets would be revealed. On that day (Judgment Day), human beings would have no power and no one would help them.
Allah then takes another oath on the heaven and the earth to say that, whatever being said here is word of Allah and must be taken very seriously.
In the last three verses of the chapter, Allah says that the non-believers are plotting a scheme but in return Allah is also planning a scheme.
