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
By the star when it sets: (1) Your comrade erreth not, nor is deceived; (2) nor speaks he out of caprice. (3) It is but a divine revelation, which is revealed to him. (4) He has been taught by the Extremely Powerful. (5) Of might, he (Gabriel) stood firm (6) While he was in the higher [part of the] horizon. (7) Then he approached and came closer, (8) until he was as close to him as the distance of two bows, or even less. (9) And He revealed to His servant what He revealed. (10) His heart did not lie of what he saw. (11) what, will you dispute with him what he sees? (12) He saw Him indeed another time (13) Near the Lote-tree beyond which none may pass: (14) near unto the garden of promise. (15) When that covered the lote-tree which covered it. (16) His eye did not waver, nor did it stray, (17) Indeed, he saw one of the greatest signs of his Lord. (18) Have you really considered al-Lat and al-"Uzza, (19) And Manat, the third, the other? (20) What! for you the males and for Him the females! (21) That indeed is a division unfair! (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) So (know that) Allah only is the Owner of all the Hereafter and this world. (25)
