The Stars (Al-Najm)
62 verses, revealed in Mecca after Absoluteness (Al-Ikhlaas) before He Frowned ('Abasa)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
CONSIDER this unfolding [of God's message,] as it comes down from on high! (1) Your comrade erreth not, nor is deceived; (2) He does not speak out of his own desires. (3) It is only an Inspiration that is inspired. (4) He has been taught (this Quran) by one mighty in power [Jibrael (Gabriel)]. (5) one endowed with immense wisdom. He came forth and stood poised, (6) being on the higher horizon, (7) Then he drew near and drew closer (8) he was but two bows' length or even nearer, (9) and revealed to God's servant what he revealed. (10) His heart added no untruth to what he saw. (11) What, will you dispute with him about what he sees! (12) Indeed, he saw him in another descent (13) Near the lote-tree of the last boundary. (14) near which is Paradise. (15) When the Lote-tree was covered over with what it was covered over; (16) (Muhammad's) eyes did not deceive him, nor did they lead him to falsehood. (17) Certainly he saw of the greatest signs of his Lord. (18) Have you considered El-Lat and El-'Uzza (19) And Manat, the third, the other? (20) Are there sons for you, and daughters for Him? (21) That is indeed an unfair division! (22) They are but names, named by you and your fathers. Allah has not sent down any authority for them. They follow conjecture and their soul's desire, eventhough the guidance of their Lord has come to them. (23) Does man imagine that whatever he wishes for is right for him? (24) So (know that) Allah only is the Owner of all the Hereafter and this world. (25)
