The Stars (Al-Najm)
62 verses, revealed in Mecca after Absoluteness (Al-Ikhlaas) before He Frowned ('Abasa)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
I CALL TO witness the star of the pleiades when it has dipped (1) Your comrade erreth not, nor is deceived; (2) Nor does he say (aught) of (his own) Desire. (3) It is only an Inspiration that is inspired. (4) The Lord of Mighty Power has taught him, (5) and endowed with wisdom; who in time manifested himself; (6) being on the higher horizon, (7) Thereafter he drew nigh, then he let himself down. (8) until he was two bow-lengths away or even closer (9) And He revealed unto His slave that which He revealed. (10) The (Prophet's) (mind and) heart in no way falsified that which he saw. (11) What, will you dispute with him about what he sees! (12) Indeed he saw him a second time, (13) at the Lote Tree (Sidrat tree) of the ending (14) near unto the garden of promise. (15) (This was) when the lote-tree was covered with that which covered it. (16) His eye did not waver, nor did it stray, (17) for indeed he saw one of the greatest signs of his Lord. (18) So have you considered al-Lat and al-'Uzza? (19) And Manat, the third - the other one? (20) What! For you the son, and for Him the daughter? (21) That indeed were an unfair division! (22) They are but names which ye have named, ye and your fathers, for which Allah hath revealed no warrant. They follow but a guess and that which (they) themselves desire. And now the guidance from their Lord hath come unto them. (23) Or is there for man whatever he wishes? (24) But unto Allah belongeth the after (life), and the former. (25)
