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
By the Star when it goes down,- (1) Your comrade erreth not, nor is deceived; (2) Nor does he speak out of desire. (3) It is naught save an inspiration that is inspired, (4) taught by One who is Stern in power. (5) Endued with Wisdom: for he appeared (in stately form); (6) standing poised at the highest point on the horizon, (7) Then he drew nigh and came down (8) Till he was (distant) two bows' length or even nearer, (9) So did (Allah) convey the inspiration to His Servant- (conveyed) what He (meant) to convey. (10) The (Prophet's) (mind and) heart in no way falsified that which he saw. (11) Will ye then dispute with him concerning what he saw? (12) For indeed he saw him at a second descent, (13) Nigh unto the lote-tree at the boundary. (14) by the Garden of [Eternal] Repose, (15) When that covered the lote-tree which did cover it! (16) (His) sight never swerved, nor did it go wrong! (17) Assuredly he beheld of the sign of his Lord, the greatest. (18) Have you considered Lat and 'Uzza, (19) and about the third deity, al-Manat? (20) What! unto you the males and unto Him the females? (21) Behold, such would be indeed a division most unfair! (22) They are but names, named by you and your fathers. Allah has not sent down any authority for them. They follow conjecture and their soul's desire, eventhough the guidance of their Lord has come to them. (23) Can the human being have whatever he wishes? (24) Nay! for Allah is the hereafter and the former (life). (25)
