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
By the Star when it setteth, (1) Your companion does not err, nor does he go astray; (2) And he speaketh not of his own desire. (3) It is only an Inspiration that is inspired. (4) taught him by one terrible in power, (5) Of might, he (Gabriel) stood firm (6) While he was on the uppermost horizon. (7) Then the Spectacle became closer, and came down in full view. (8) And was at a distance of two bow lengths or nearer. (9) then revealed to his servant that he revealed. (10) His heart lies not of what he saw; (11) Will ye therefore dispute with him concerning that which he hath seen? (12) And indeed he (Muhammad SAW) saw him [Jibrael (Gabriel)] at a second descent (i.e. another time). (13) by the lote tree beyond which none may pass (14) Near it is the Paradise of Abode. (15) when there covered the Lote-Tree that which covered; (16) The sight did not shift, nor did it cross the limits. (17) He saw some of the greatest signs of his Lord. (18) Have ye thought upon Al-Lat and Al-'Uzza (19) And Manat, the third - the other one? (20) Shall you have the male issues, and He the female issues? (21) That indeed is an unfair division -- (22) They are but names which you have named, you and your fathers, for which Allah has sent down no authority. They follow but a guess and that which they themselves desire, whereas there has surely come to them the Guidance from their Lord! (23) Can the human being have whatever he wishes? (24) And to God belongs the First and the Last. (25)
