The Stars (Al-Najm)
62 verses, revealed in Mecca after Absoluteness (Al-Ikhlaas) before He Frowned ('Abasa)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
By the star when it goes down, (or vanishes). (1) your companion has neither strayed nor is he deluded; (2) nor speaks he out of caprice. (3) It is naught save an inspiration that is inspired, (4) He was taught by one Mighty in Power, (5) by the great mighty one (Gabriel), (6) While he [Jibrael (Gabriel)] was in the highest part of the horizon, (7) Then he drew nigh and came down (8) Until a space of two bow (arcs) or even less remained, (9) So did (Allah) convey the Inspiration to His slave [Muhammad SAW through Jibrael (Gabriel)]. (10) His heart lies not of what he saw; (11) What, will you dispute with him about what he sees! (12) And he certainly saw him in another descent (13) at the Lote Tree (Sidrat tree) of the ending (14) near which is Paradise. (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 the supreme signs of his Lord. (18) (Can anything as such be considered true) of al-Lat, al-Uzza, (19) and your third idol al-Manat (whom you considered as God's daughters)? (20) What! unto you the males and unto Him the females? (21) This is certainly an unjust apportioning. (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) Is the human to have whatever he fancies? (24) Rather, to Allah belongs the Hereafter and the first [life]. (25)
