AL-NAJM (53)

The Star

Revealed at Mecca,Verses: 62 In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The All-merciful
  1. By the star when it plunges,(1)
  2. your companion is not astray, nor perverted;(2)
  3. nor does he speak out of caprice.(3)
  4. It is naught but a revelation revealed,(4)
  5. which One mighty in power,(5)
  6. very strong, taught him. He stood poised,(6)
  7. and he was on the highest horizon;(7)
  8. then he drew near and was close by,(8)
  9. and he was two bows' length away, or nearer,(9)
  10. then He revealed to His Servant what He revealed.(10)
  11. The heart did not lie in what he saw.(11)
  12. Will you then dispute with him on what he sees?(12)
  13. And he saw it another time;(13)
  14. by the Lote-tree of the extreme end.(14)
  15. Near it is the Garden of the abode.(15)
  16. When there covers the Lote-tree(16)
  17. that which covers, the eye did not swerve, nor transgressed.(17)
  18. Indeed he saw some of the greatest Signs of his Lord.(18)
  19. Have you then considered Lat and Uzza,(19)
  20. and Manat the third, the other?(20)
  21. Are males for you, and for Him females?(21)
  22. That then is an unfair division.(22)
  23. They are not but names that you have given, you and your fathers, for which God has not sent down any authority. They follow only surmise and what the souls desire, while there has come to them guidance from their Lord.(23)
  24. Or shall man have what he longs for?(24)
  25. But to God belongs the Last and the First.(25)
  26. And how many an angel there is in the heavens, whose intercession does not avail in the least, but after God gives leave to whom He will and is pleased.(26)
  27. Those who do not believe in the Hereafter give the angels female names.(27)
  28. But they have no knowledge thereof; they only follow surmise; and surmise does not avail against the truth in the least.(28)
  29. So turn thou from him who turns away from Our Remembrance, and desires only the life of this world.(29)
  30. That is their ultimate reach in knowledge. Surely Thy Lord very well knows him who has gone astray from His way, and He very well knows him who is guided.(30)
  31. And to God belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, that He may recompense those who do evil for what they have done and recompense those who do good with the best reward.(31)
  32. Those who avoid major sins and indecencies, except minor faults; surely thy Lord is All-embracing in forgiveness. He very well know you, when He produced you from the earth, and when you were embryos in your mothers' wombs; so do not ascribe purity to yourselves; He very well knows him who is godfearing.(32)
  33. Now, hast thou seen him who turned away;(33)
  34. and he gave a little, then withheld?(34)
  35. Has he the knowledge of the unseen and so he sees?(35)
  36. Or has he not been told of what is in the Scrolls of Moses,(36)
  37. and of Abraham who fulfilled __ (37)
  38. that no laden soul bears the load of another,(38)
  39. that there shall be nothing for man except as he laboured, (39)
  40. and that his labouring shall soon be seen,(40)
  41. then he shall be recompensed for it with the fullest recompense,(41)
  42. and that to thy Lord is the final end;(42)
  43. and that it is He who makes to laugh and makes to weep,(43)
  44. and it is He who makes to die and makes to live,(44)
  45. and it is He who creates two kinds, male and female,(45)
  46. of a sperm-drop when it is spilled,(46)
  47. and that upon Him rests the second growth,(47)
  48. and that it is He who gives riches and contentment,(48)
  49. and that it is He who is the Lord of the Sirius,(49)
  50. and that it is He who destroyed Ad, the ancient,(50)
  51. and Thamood, and spared not,(51)
  52. and Noah's people before; surely they were the biggest wrong-doers and most rebellious.(52)
  53. And the Subverted City, He struck down;(53)
  54. then there covered it that which covered.(54)
  55. Now which of thy Lord's bounties shalt thou dispute?(55)
  56. This is a warner of the warners of old.(56)
  57. The Imminent has drawn near;(57)
  58. there is none, apart from God, to disclose it.(58)
  59. Do you then wonder at this discourse,(59)
  60. and laugh, and weep not,(60)
  61. and you make merry?(61)
  62. But prostrate yourselves to God and serve Him.(62)
