1By the Star when it setteth,
2Your comrade erreth not, nor is deceived;
3Nor doth he speak of (his own) desire.
4It is naught save an inspiration that is inspired,
5Which one of mighty powers hath taught him,
6One vigorous; and he grew clear to view
7When he was on the uppermost horizon.
8Then he drew nigh and came down
9Till he was (distant) two bows' length or even nearer,
10And He revealed unto His slave that which He revealed.
11The heart lied not (in seeing) what it saw.
12Will ye then dispute with him concerning what he seeth?
13And verily he saw him yet another time
14By the lote-tree of the utmost boundary,
15Nigh unto which is the Garden of Abode.
16When that which shroudeth did enshroud the lote-tree,
17The eye turned not aside nor yet was overbold.
18Verily he saw one of the greater revelations of his Lord.
19Have ye thought upon Al-Lat and Al-'Uzza
20And Manat, the third, the other?
21Are yours the males and His the females?
22That indeed were an unfair division!
23They are but names which ye have named, ye and your fathers, for which Allah hath revealed no warrant. They follow but a guess and that which (they) themselves desire. And now the guidance from their Lord hath come unto them.
24Or shall man have what he coveteth?
25But unto Allah belongeth the after (life), and the former.
26And how many angels are in the heavens whose intercession availeth naught save after Allah giveth leave to whom He chooseth and accepteth.
27Lo! it is those who disbelieve in the Hereafter who name the angels with the names of females.
28And they have no knowledge thereof. They follow but a guess, and lo! a guess can never take the place of the truth.
29Then withdraw (O Muhammad) from him who fleeth from Our remembrance and desireth but the life of the world.
30Such is their sum of knowledge. Lo! thy Lord is Best Aware of him who strayeth, and He is Best Aware of him whom goeth right.
31And unto Allah belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth, that He may reward those who do evil with that which they have done, and reward those who do good with goodness.
32Those who avoid enormities of sin and abominations, save the unwilled offences - (for them) lo! thy Lord is of vast mercy. He is Best Aware of you (from the time) when He created you from the earth, and when ye were hidden in the bellies of your mothers. Therefor ascribe not purity unto yourselves. He is Best Aware of him who wardeth off (evil).
33Didst thou (O Muhammad) observe him who turned away,
34And gave a little, then was grudging?
35Hath he knowledge of the Unseen so that he seeth?
36Or hath he not had news of what is in the books of Moses
37And Abraham who paid his debt:
38That no laden one shall bear another's load,
39And that man hath only that for which he maketh effort,
40And that his effort will be seen.
41And afterward he will be repaid for it with fullest payment;
42And that thy Lord, He is the goal;
43And that He it is who maketh laugh, and maketh weep,
44And that He it is Who giveth death and giveth life;
45And that He createth the two spouses, the male and the female,
46From a drop (of seed) when it is poured forth;
47And that He hath ordained the second bringing forth;
48And that He it is Who enricheth and contenteth;
49And that He it is Who is the Lord of Sirius;
50And that He destroyed the former (tribe of) A'ad,
51And (the tribe of) Thamud He spared not;
52And the folk of Noah aforetime, Lo! they were more unjust and more rebellious;
53And Al-Mu'tafikah He destroyed
54So that there covered them that which did cover.
55Concerning which then, of the bounties of thy Lord, canst thou dispute?
56This is a warner of the warners of old.
57The threatened Hour is nigh.
58None beside Allah can disclose it.
59Marvel ye then at this statement,
60And laugh and not weep,
61While ye amuse yourselves?
62Rather prostrate yourselves before Allah and serve Him.
