The Stars (Al-Najm)
62 verses, revealed in Mecca after Absoluteness (Al-Ikhlaas) before He Frowned ('Abasa)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
By the declining star, (1) Your companion (Muhammad SAW) has neither gone astray nor has erred. (2) He does not speak out of his own desires. (3) It is no less than inspiration sent down to him: (4) He has been taught by the Extremely Powerful. (5) and endowed with wisdom; who in time manifested himself; (6) And he was on the horizon of the highest heaven. (7) Then he approached and descended (8) until he was as close to him as the distance of two bows, or even less. (9) So Allah divinely revealed to His bondman, whatever He divinely revealed. (10) The heart did not lie [about] what it saw. (11) Will ye then dispute with him concerning what he seeth? (12) And verily he saw him yet another time (13) Near the lote-tree of the last boundary. (14) Near it is the Paradise of Abode. (15) (This was) when the lote-tree was covered with that which covered it. (16) The sight did not shift, nor did it cross the limits. (17) Indeed, he saw one of the greatest signs of his Lord. (18) (Among the idols) have you considered allat and al'uzza, (19) and, another, the third manat? (20) What! For you the son, and for Him the daughter? (21) That were indeed an unjust 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) Can ever man get what he desires? (24) Allah's is the last and the first. (25)
