The Stars (Al-Najm)
62 verses, revealed in Mecca after Absoluteness (Al-Ikhlaas) before He Frowned ('Abasa)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
By the star when it plunges, (1) your comrade is not astray, neither errs, (2) nor does he speak out of his desire. (3) that [which he conveys to you] is but [a divine] inspiration with which he is being inspired (4) He was taught by one Mighty in Power, (5) One of soundness. And he rose to [his] true form (6) And he was on the horizon of the highest heaven. (7) Then he drew nigh and came down (8) until he was as close to him as the distance of two bows, or even less. (9) So Allah divinely revealed to His bondman, whatever He divinely revealed. (10) The heart lied not in that which he saw. (11) What, will you dispute with him about what he sees! (12) He certainly saw him (Gabriel) during his other ascent (13) Near the Lote-tree beyond which none may pass: (14) by the Garden of [Eternal] Repose, (15) with the lote-tree veiled in a veil of nameless splendour (16) his eyes did not swerve, nor did they stray (17) Assuredly he beheld of the sign of his Lord, the greatest. (18) HAVE YOU, then, ever considered [what you are worshipping in] Al-Lat and Al-Uzza, (19) and Manat the third, the other? (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 which you have named, you and your fathers; Allah has not sent for them any authority. They follow naught but conjecture and the low desires which (their) souls incline to; and certainly the guidance has come to them from their Lord. (23) Nay, shall man have (just) anything he hankers after? (24) Allah's is the last and the first. (25)
