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 Compassionate
By oath of the beloved shining star Mohammed (peace and blessings be upon him), when he returned from the Ascent. (1) Your companion hath not gone astray, nor hath he erred. (2) Nor does he say (aught) of (his own) Desire. (3) It is naught save an inspiration that is inspired, (4) He was taught by [an angel] who is mighty in power, (5) The Strong; then the Spectacle inclined towards him. (6) While he [Jibrael (Gabriel)] was in the highest part of the horizon, (7) Then he drew near, then he bowed (8) Till he was (distant) two bows' length or even nearer, (9) Thus He revealed unto His bondman whatsoever He revealed. (10) The heart lied not in that which he saw. (11) What, will you dispute with him about what he sees! (12) And verily he saw him yet another time (13) By the Lote-tree beyond which none can pass, (14) Near which is the garden, the place to be resorted to. (15) When there comes to the Lote Tree, that which comes (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 some of the greatest signs of His Lord. (18) (Can anything as such be considered true) of al-Lat, al-Uzza, (19) and, another, the third manat? (20) What! unto you the males and unto Him the females? (21) that, lo and behold, is an unfair division! (22) these are nothing but names which you yourselves have devised, you and your forefathers. God has sent down no authority for them. They follow nothing but conjecture and what their own selves desire, even though guidance has already come to them from their Lord! (23) Shall man have whatever he craves? (24) To Allah belong both the Next World and the present. (25)
