The Stars (Al-Najm)
62 verses, revealed in Mecca after Absoluteness (Al-Ikhlaas) before He Frowned ('Abasa)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
CONSIDER this unfolding [of God's message,] as it comes down from on high! (1) Your companion did not err, nor did he go astray. (2) Nor does he speak out of desire. (3) It is only an Inspiration that is inspired. (4) Which one of mighty powers hath taught him, (5) and endowed with wisdom; who in time manifested himself; (6) the strong one who appeared on the uppermost horizon. (7) then he drew near, and became close (8) two bows' length away, or nearer, (9) and revealed to God's servant what he revealed. (10) The (Prophet's) heart lied not (in seeing) what he (Muhammad SAW) saw. (11) will you, then, contend with him as to what he saw? (12) And certainly he saw him descend a second time: (13) At the farthest lote-tree; (14) Close to which is the Garden of Tranquility, (15) with the lote-tree veiled in a veil of nameless splendour (16) his eyes did not swerve, nor did they stray (17) for indeed he saw one of the greatest signs of his Lord. (18) Have ye thought upon Al-Lat and Al-'Uzza (19) And Manat, the third, the other? (20) "What! For you the males and for Him the females?" (21) That is indeed an unfair division! (22) These are only names given by yourselves and your fathers. God has not given them any authority. They, (unbelievers), only follow mere conjecture and the desires of their souls, even though guidance has already come to them from their Lord. (23) Does man imagine that it is his due to have all that he might wish for, (24) And to God belongs the First and the Last. (25)
