وَالسَّمَاءِ ذَاتِ الرَّجْعِ
Consider the heavens, ever-revolving, (11)
وَالْأَرْضِ ذَاتِ الصَّدْعِ
and the earth, bursting forth with plants! (12)
إِنَّهُ لَقَوْلٌ فَصْلٌ
BEHOLD, this [divine writ] is indeed a word that cuts between truth and falsehood, (13)
وَمَا هُوَ بِالْهَزْلِ
and is no idle tale. (14)
إِنَّهُمْ يَكِيدُونَ كَيْدًا
Behold, they [who refuse to accept it] devise many a false argument [to disprove its truth]; (15)
وَأَكِيدُ كَيْدًا
but I shall bring all their scheming to nought. (16)
فَمَهِّلِ الْكَافِرِينَ أَمْهِلْهُمْ رُوَيْدًا
Let, then, the deniers of the truth have their will: let them have their will for a little while! (17)
