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 is neither astray nor being misled. (2) and neither does he speak out of his own desire: (3) It is but a divine revelation, which is revealed to him. (4) taught by One who is Stern in power. (5) and endowed with wisdom; who in time manifested himself; (6) When he was on the uppermost horizon. (7) and then drew near, and came close, (8) until he was but two bow-lengths away, or even nearer. (9) and revealed to God's servant what he revealed. (10) His heart lies not of what he saw; (11) will you, then, contend with him as to what he saw? (12) And indeed, he saw him a second time (13) By the lote-tree of the utmost boundary, (14) Nigh thereto is the Garden of Abode. (15) When the lote-tree was being enveloped, by whatever around it. (16) [And withal,] the eye did not waver, nor yet did it stray: (17) Indeed, he saw one of the greatest signs of his Lord. (18) Have you ever thought about al-Lat and al-Uzza, (19) and Manat the third, the other? (20) Are there sons for you, and daughters for Him? (21) That indeed is 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) Or is there for man whatever he wishes? (24) To Allah belong both the Next World and the present. (25)
