1By the star when it goes down (or vanishes).
2Your companion (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) has neither gone astray nor has erred.
3Nor does he speak of (his own) desire.
4It is only a Revelation revealed.
5He has been taught (this Qur'an) by one mighty in power [Jibril (Gabriel)]
6One free from any defect in body and mind then he (Jibril - Gabriel in his real shape as created by Allah) rose and became stable.
7While he [Jibril (Gabriel)] was in the highest part of the horizon, (Tafsir Ibn Kathir)
8Then he [Jibril (Gabriel)] approached and came closer,
9And was at a distance of two bows' length or (even) nearer.
10So (Allah) revealed to His slave [Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم through Jibril (Gabriel) عليه السلام] whatever He revealed.
11The (Prophet's) heart lied not in what he (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) saw.
12Will you then dispute with him (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) about what he saw [during the Mi'raj: (Ascent of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم to the seven heavens)]
13And indeed he (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) saw him [Jibril (Gabriel)] at a second descent (i.e. another time).
14Near Sidrat-ul-Muntaha (a lote-tree of the utmost boundary over the seventh heaven beyond which none can pass).
15Near it is the Paradise of Abode.
16When that covered the lote-tree which did cover it!
17The sight (of Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) turned not aside (right or left), nor it transgressed beyond the limit (ordained for it).
18Indeed he (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) did see of the Greatest Signs, of his Lord (Allah).
19Have you then considered Al-Lat, and Al-'Uzza (two idols of the pagan Arabs)
20And Manat (another idol of the pagan Arabs), the other third?
21Is it for you the males and for Him the females?
22That indeed is a division most unfair!
23They are but names which you have named - you and your fathers - for which Allah has sent down no authority. They follow but a guess and that which they themselves desire, whereas there has surely come to them the Guidance from their Lord!
24Or shall man have what he wishes?
25But to Allah belongs the last (Hereafter) and the first (the world).
26And there are many angels in the heavens, whose intercession will avail nothing except after Allah has given leave for whom He wills and is pleased with.
27Verily, those who believe not in the Hereafter, name the angels with female names.
28But they have no knowledge thereof. They follow but a guess, and verily, guess is no substitute for the truth.
29Therefore withdraw (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) from him who turns away from Our Reminder (this Qur'an) and desires nothing but the life of this world.
30That is what they could reach of knowledge. Verily, your Lord it is He Who knows best him who goes astray from His Path, and He knows best him who receives guidance.
31And to Allah belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, that He may requite those who do evil with that which they have done (i.e. punish them in Hell), and reward those who do good, with what is best (i.e. Paradise).
32Those who avoid great sins (See the Qur'an, Verses: 6:152,153) and Al-Fawahish (illegal sexual intercourse) except the small faults, - verily, your Lord is of Vast Forgiveness. He knows you well when He created you from the earth (Adam), and when you were fetuses in your mothers' wombs. So ascribe not purity to yourselves. He knows best him who fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him [i.e. those who are Al-Muttaqun (the pious. See V.2:2)].
33Did you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) observe him who turned away (from Islam).
34And gave a little, then stopped (giving)?
35Is with him the knowledge of the Unseen so that he sees?
36Or is he not informed with what is in the Pages (Scripture) of Musa (Moses),
37And of Ibrahim (Abraham) who fulfilled (or conveyed) all that (Allah ordered him to do or convey):
38That no burdened person (with sins) shall bear the burden (sins) of another.
39And that man can have nothing but what he does (good or bad).
40And that his deeds will be seen.
41Then he will be recompensed with a full and the best recompense.
42And that to your Lord (Allah) is the End (Return of everything).
43And that it is He (Allah) Who makes (whom He wills) laugh, and makes (whom He wills) weep.
44And that it is He (Allah) Who causes death and gives life.
45And that He (Allah) creates the pairs, male and female,
46From Nutfah (drops of semen - male and female discharges) when it is emitted.
47And that upon Him (Allah) is another bringing forth (Resurrection).
48And that it is He (Allah) Who gives much or a little (of wealth and contentment)
49And that He (Allah) is the Lord of Sirius (the star which the pagan Arabs used to worship).
50And that it is He (Allah) Who destroyed the former 'Ad (people),
51And Thamud (people): He spared none of them.
52And the people of Nuh (Noah) aforetime. Verily, they were more unjust and more rebellious and transgressing [in disobeying Allah and His Messenger Nuh (Noah) عليه السلام].
53And He destroyed the overthrown cities [of Sodom to which Prophet Lut (Lot) was sent].
54So there covered them that which did cover (i.e. torment with stones).
55Then which of the Graces of your Lord (O man!) will you doubt?
56This (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) is a warner (Messenger) of the (series of) warners (Messengers) of old.
57The Day of Resurrection draws near.
58None besides Allah can avert it (or advance it or delay it).
59Do you then wonder at this recitation (the Qur'an)?
60And you laugh at it and weep not,
61Wasting your (precious) lifetime in pastime and amusements (singing, etc.).
62So fall you down in prostration to Allah and worship Him (Alone).
