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 Most Merciful
I CALL TO witness the star of the pleiades when it has dipped (1) your companion has neither strayed nor is he deluded; (2) nor does he speak out of his own desire. (3) This is only revelation communicated, (4) The Lord of Mighty Power has taught him, (5) Lord of power and wisdom. So he acquired poise and balance, (6) being on the higher horizon, (7) then drew near and suspended hung, (8) So the distance between the Spectacle and the beloved was only two arms’ length, or even less. (The Heavenly Journey of Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him was with body and soul.) (9) and revealed to God's servant what he revealed. (10) The heart did not deny, what it saw. (The Holy Prophet was bestowed with seeing Allah see also preceding verses 8, 9, 10.) (11) Are you, then, going to contend with him regarding what he sees with his eyes? (12) And verily he saw him yet another time (13) Near the Lote-tree beyond which none may pass: (14) near which is Paradise. (15) When that covered the lote-tree which covered it. (16) The sight did not shift, nor did it cross the limits. (17) For truly did he see, of the Signs of his Lord, the Greatest! (18) Have ye then considered Al-Lat and AL-'uzza: (19) And Manat, the third, the last? (20) What! for you the males and for Him the females! (21) This indeed is an unjust 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 it is his due to have all that he might wish for, (24) To Allah belongs the Eternal life and the first life. (25)
