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
By oath of the beloved shining star Mohammed (peace and blessings be upon him), when he returned from the Ascent. (1) Your companion [Muhammad] has not strayed, nor has he erred, (2) And he speaketh not of his own desire. (3) It is only an Inspiration that is inspired. (4) taught by One who is Stern in power. (5) The Strong; then the Spectacle inclined towards him. (6) standing poised at the highest point on the horizon, (7) He (Gabriel) then came nearer and nearer. (8) Until a space of two bow (arcs) or even less remained, (9) And he revealed to His Servant what he revealed. (10) The heart lied not in that which he saw. (11) Will you then dispute with him (Muhammad SAW) about what he saw [during the Mi'raj: (Ascent of the Prophet SAW over the seven heavens)]. (12) And indeed he (Muhammad SAW) saw him [Jibrael (Gabriel)] at a second descent (i.e. another time). (13) by the Lote-Tree of the Boundary (14) near unto the garden of promise. (15) when there covered the Lote-Tree that which covered; (16) His sight did not waver nor was it unduly bold. (17) Certainly he saw of the greatest signs of his Lord. (18) Have you ever thought about al-Lat and al-Uzza, (19) And Manat, the third - the other one? (20) What, have you males, and He females? (21) That indeed were an unfair division! (22) These are nothing but names that you and your forefathers have invented, for which Allah has sent down no authority. They are merely following their conjectures and their carnal desires although guidance has come to them from their Lord. (23) What! Will man get whatever he dreams of? (24) To Allah belongs the Eternal life and the first life. (25)
