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 oath of the beloved shining star Mohammed (peace and blessings be upon him), when he returned from the Ascent. (1) your companion is neither astray, neither errs, (2) Neither does he speak of his own will. (3) It is naught but revelation that is revealed, (4) taught him by one terrible in power, (5) very strong; he stood poised, (6) And reached the highest pinnacle. (7) then he drew near, and became close (8) until he was two bow-lengths away or even closer (9) then revealed to his servant that he revealed. (10) His heart did not lie of what he saw. (11) What! So do you dispute with him regarding what he saw? (12) He certainly saw him (Gabriel) during his other ascent (13) At the Lote Tree of the Utmost Boundary - (14) Nigh unto which is the Garden of Abode. (15) (This was) when the lote-tree was covered with that which covered it. (16) The sight did not shift, nor did it cross the limits. (17) Indeed he (Muhammad SAW) did see, of the Greatest Signs, of his Lord (Allah). (18) So did you observe the idols Lat and Uzza? (19) And Manat, the other third (of the pagan deities)? (20) What! for you the male sex, and for Him, the female? (21) That were indeed an unjust division. (22) They are naught but names yourselves have named, and your fathers; God has sent down no authority touching them. They follow only surmise, and what the souls desire; and yet guidance has come to them from their Lord. (23) Shall man have whatsoever he wisheth for! (24) But unto Allah belongeth the after (life), and the former. (25)
