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
I swear by the star when it goes down. (1) your companion is not in error nor has he gone astray. (2) Nor doth he speak of (his own) desire. (3) It is only an Inspiration that is inspired. (4) The Lord of Mighty Power has taught him, (5) One of soundness. And he rose to [his] true form (6) being on the higher horizon. (7) Then he drew near, then he bowed (8) So he was the measure of two bows or closer still. (9) And He revealed to His servant what He revealed. (10) The [servant's] heart did not give the lie to what he saw: (11) Will ye then dispute with him concerning what he saw? (12) Indeed he saw him a second time, (13) by the lote tree beyond which none may pass (14) Close to which is the Garden of Tranquility, (15) when there covered the Lote-Tree that which covered; (16) The eye did not turn aside, nor did it exceed the limit. (17) Assuredly he beheld of the sign of his Lord, the greatest. (18) So did you observe the idols Lat and Uzza? (19) and the third one, Manat? -- (20) Do sons belong to you and daughters to God? (21) That indeed is an unfair division -- (22) They are nothing but some names that you have coined, you and your forefathers Allah has not sent any proof for them; they follow only guesses and their own desires; whereas the guidance from their Lord has come to them. (23) Or is there for man whatever he wishes? (24) To Allah belongs the Eternal life and the first life. (25)
