The Stars (Al-Najm)
62 verses, revealed in Mecca after Absoluteness (Al-Ikhlaas) before He Frowned ('Abasa)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
CONSIDER this unfolding [of God's message,] as it comes down from on high! (1) your companion is not in error nor has he gone astray. (2) nor does he speak out of desire. (3) that [which he conveys to you] is but [a divine] inspiration with which he is being inspired (4) Which one of mighty powers hath taught him, (5) The Lord of Strength; so he attained completion, (6) And he is in the highest part of the horizon. (7) then he drew near, and became close (8) two bows' length away, or nearer, (9) And thus did [God] reveal unto His servant whatever He deemed right to reveal. (10) The (Prophet's) (mind and) heart in no way falsified that which he saw. (11) will you, then, contend with him as to what he saw? (12) Indeed, he saw him in another descent (13) At the farthest lote-tree; (14) near which is the Garden of Abode. (15) When that which shroudeth did enshroud the lote-tree, (16) (His) sight never swerved, nor did it go wrong! (17) Verily he saw one of the greater revelations of his Lord. (18) Have ye seen Lat. and 'Uzza, (19) And Manat, the other third (of the pagan deities)? (20) What! unto you the males and unto Him the females? (21) This indeed is an unjust division! (22) They are but names which you have named, you and your fathers, for which Allah has sent down no authority. They follow but a guess and that which they themselves desire, whereas there has surely come to them the Guidance from their Lord! (23) Nay, shall man have (just) anything he hankers after? (24) And to God belongs the First and the Last. (25)
