The Stars (Al-Najm)
62 verses, revealed in Mecca after Absoluteness (Al-Ikhlaas) before He Frowned ('Abasa)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
By the star when it sets: (1) your companion has neither strayed nor is he deluded; (2) Nor does he say (aught) of (his own) Desire. (3) Indeed it is not except a Revelation which is revealed, (4) The Lord of Mighty Power has taught him, (5) Of might, he (Gabriel) stood firm (6) When he was on the uppermost horizon. (7) Then he approached and descended (8) until he was two bows' length away, or nearer. (9) So did (Allah) convey the Inspiration to His slave [Muhammad SAW through Jibrael (Gabriel)]. (10) The heart lied not (in seeing) what it saw. (11) What! So do you dispute with him regarding what he saw? (12) Indeed, he saw him in another descent (13) Near the lote-tree of the last boundary. (14) near unto the garden of promise. (15) Behold, the Lote-tree was shrouded (in mystery unspeakable!) (16) The eye did not turn aside, nor did it exceed the limit. (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 another, the third (goddess), Manat? (20) "What! For you the males and for Him the females?" (21) That is indeed an unjust division. (22) They are but names which ye have named, ye and your fathers, for which Allah hath sent down no authority. They follow but their fancy, and that which pleaseth their souls; whereas assuredly there hath come unto them from their Lord the guidance. (23) Or shall man have what he wishes? (24) To Allah belongs the Eternal life and the first life. (25)
