The Stars (Al-Najm)
62 verses, revealed in Mecca after Absoluteness (Al-Ikhlaas) before He Frowned ('Abasa)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
By the setting star, (1) your companion has neither strayed nor is he deluded; (2) and neither does he speak out of his own desire: (3) This is only revelation communicated, (4) He was taught by [an angel] who is mighty in power, (5) one endowed with immense wisdom. He came forth and stood poised, (6) And he is in the highest part of the horizon. (7) Then he approached and descended (8) until he was but two bow-lengths away, or even nearer. (9) and revealed to God's servant what he revealed. (10) The (Prophet's) (mind and) heart in no way falsified that which he saw. (11) What! do you then dispute with him as to what he saw? (12) And certainly he saw him descend a second time: (13) by the Lote-Tree of the Boundary (14) Near it is the Garden of Refuge - (15) when the lote tree was covered in mystic splendour. (16) The sight (of Prophet Muhammad SAW) turned not aside (right or left), nor it transgressed beyond (the) limit (ordained for it). (17) He certainly saw the greatest (signs) of the existence of his Lord. (18) Have ye thought upon Al-Lat and Al-'Uzza (19) and the third one, Manat? -- (20) Is the male for you and for Him the female? (21) That were indeed an unjust division. (22) These are nothing but names that you and your forefathers have invented, for which Allah has sent down no authority. They are merely following their conjectures and their carnal desires although guidance has come to them from their Lord. (23) Shall man have whatsoever he wisheth for! (24) Nay! for Allah is the hereafter and the former (life). (25)
