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
CONSIDER this unfolding [of God's message,] as it comes down from on high! (1) That your companion is not confused, nor has he gone astray, (2) nor does he speak out of his desire. (3) This is only revelation communicated, (4) something that a very powerful one has imparted to him, (5) and endowed with wisdom; who in time manifested himself; (6) being on the higher horizon. (7) Then he approached and descended (8) And was at a distance of but two bow-lengths or (even) nearer; (9) And thus did [God] reveal unto His servant whatever He deemed right to reveal. (10) The heart was not untrue in (making him see) what he saw. (11) Will ye then dispute with him concerning what he saw? (12) Indeed, he saw him another time (13) to the Lot-tree (in the seven heavens) (14) Near it is the Garden of Abode. (15) (This was) when the lote-tree was covered with that which covered it. (16) The sight (of Prophet Muhammad SAW) turned not aside (right or left), nor it transgressed beyond (the) limit (ordained for it). (17) Indeed he saw the supreme signs of his Lord. (18) Have you considered El-Lat and El-'Uzza (19) as well as [in] Manat, the third and last [of this triad]? (20) Is the male for you and for Him the female? (21) that, lo and behold, is an unfair division! (22) These are only names which you and your fathers have invented. No authority was sent down by God for them. They only follow conjecture and wish-fulfilment, even though guidance had come to them already from their Lord. (23) What! Will man get whatever he dreams of? (24) But unto Allah belongeth the after (life), and the former. (25)
