Here the name al-Tariq refers to the bright star which shines with piercing brightness in the darkness of night. The sura begins with swearing by the evidence of the outer heavens and proceeds to focus specifically on the human being and how he came about. It then moves on to the next life followed by a reminder of the connection of the outer and the inner, Heaven and earth. Finally, Allah’s control over all plans is stated.
