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 the star when it sets: (1) Your comrade erreth not, nor is deceived; (2) Neither does he speak of his own will. (3) It is not but a revelation revealed, (4) Taught to him by one intense in strength - (5) One of soundness. And he rose to [his] true form (6) being on the higher horizon, (7) Then the Spectacle became closer, and came down in full view. (8) Till he was two bows length off or yet nearer. (9) so (Allah) revealed to His worshiper (Gabriel) that which he revealed (to Prophet Muhammad). (10) His (Muhammad's) heart did not lie to him about what his eyes had seen. (11) So will you dispute with him over what he saw? (12) For indeed he saw him at a second descent, (13) By the Lote-tree beyond which none can pass, (14) Near which is the garden, the place to be resorted to. (15) When that covered the lote-tree which did cover it! (16) The sight did not shift, nor did it cross the limits. (17) He certainly saw of the greatest signs of his Lord. (18) Have you considered El-Lat and El-'Uzza (19) And Manat, the third, the last? (20) What! for you the males and for Him the females! (21) that, lo and behold, is an unfair division! (22) They are nothing but some names that you have coined, you and your forefathers Allah has not sent any proof for them; they follow only guesses and their own desires; whereas the guidance from their Lord has come to them. (23) Shall man have whatever he craves? (24) To Allah belong both the Next World and the present. (25)
