Your companion (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) has neither gone astray nor has erred.
3.
وَمَا يَنطِقُ عَنِ الْهَوَىٰ
Nor does he speak of (his own) desire.
4.
إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا وَحْيٌ يُوحَىٰ
It is only a Revelation revealed.

عَلَّمَهُ شَدِيدُ الْقُوَىٰ
He has been taught (this Qur'an) by one mighty in power [Jibril (Gabriel)]

ذُو مِرَّةٍ فَاسْتَوَىٰ
One free from any defect in body and mind then he (Jibril - Gabriel in his real shape as created by Allah) rose and became stable.

وَهُوَ بِالْأُفُقِ الْأَعْلَىٰ
While he [Jibril (Gabriel)] was in the highest part of the horizon, (Tafsir Ibn Kathir)
8.
ثُمَّ دَنَا فَتَدَلَّىٰ
Then he [Jibril (Gabriel)] approached and came closer,
9.
فَكَانَ قَابَ قَوْسَيْنِ أَوْ أَدْنَىٰ
And was at a distance of two bows' length or (even) nearer.
10.
فَأَوْحَىٰ إِلَىٰ عَبْدِهِ مَا أَوْحَىٰ
So (Allah) revealed to His slave [Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم through Jibril (Gabriel) عليه السلام] whatever He revealed.
11.
مَا كَذَبَ الْفُؤَادُ مَا رَأَىٰ
The (Prophet's) heart lied not in what he (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) saw.
12.
أَفَتُمَارُونَهُ عَلَىٰ مَا يَرَىٰ
Will 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)]
13.
وَلَقَدْ رَآهُ نَزْلَةً أُخْرَىٰ
And indeed he (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) saw him [Jibril (Gabriel)] at a second descent (i.e. another time).
14.
عِندَ سِدْرَةِ الْمُنتَهَىٰ
Near Sidrat-ul-Muntaha (a lote-tree of the utmost boundary over the seventh heaven beyond which none can pass).
15.
عِندَهَا جَنَّةُ الْمَأْوَىٰ
Near it is the Paradise of Abode.
16.
إِذْ يَغْشَى السِّدْرَةَ مَا يَغْشَىٰ

17.
مَا زَاغَ الْبَصَرُ وَمَا طَغَىٰ
The sight (of Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) turned not aside (right or left), nor it transgressed beyond the limit (ordained for it).
18.
لَقَدْ رَأَىٰ مِنْ آيَاتِ رَبِّهِ الْكُبْرَىٰ
Indeed he (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) did see of the Greatest Signs, of his Lord (Allah).
19.
أَفَرَأَيْتُمُ اللَّاتَ وَالْعُزَّىٰ
Have you then considered Al-Lat, and Al-'Uzza (two idols of the pagan Arabs)
20.
وَمَنَاةَ الثَّالِثَةَ الْأُخْرَىٰ
And Manat (another idol of the pagan Arabs), the other third?
21.
أَلَكُمُ الذَّكَرُ وَلَهُ الْأُنثَىٰ
Is it for you the males and for Him the females?
22.
تِلْكَ إِذًا قِسْمَةٌ ضِيزَىٰ
That indeed is a division most unfair!
23.
إِنْ هِيَ إِلَّا أَسْمَاءٌ سَمَّيْتُمُوهَا أَنتُمْ وَآبَاؤُكُم مَّا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ بِهَا مِن سُلْطَانٍ ۚ إِن يَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا الظَّنَّ وَمَا تَهْوَى الْأَنفُسُ ۖ وَلَقَدْ جَاءَهُم مِّن رَّبِّهِمُ الْهُدَىٰ
They 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!
24.
أَمْ لِلْإِنسَانِ مَا تَمَنَّىٰ
Or shall man have what he wishes?
25.
فَلِلَّهِ الْآخِرَةُ وَالْأُولَىٰ
But to Allah belongs the last (Hereafter) and the first (the world).
26.
وَكَم مِّن مَّلَكٍ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ لَا تُغْنِي شَفَاعَتُهُمْ شَيْئًا إِلَّا مِن بَعْدِ أَن يَأْذَنَ اللَّهُ لِمَن يَشَاءُ وَيَرْضَىٰ
And 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.
27.
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالْآخِرَةِ لَيُسَمُّونَ الْمَلَائِكَةَ تَسْمِيَةَ الْأُنثَىٰ
Verily, those who believe not in the Hereafter, name the angels with female names.
28.
وَمَا لَهُم بِهِ مِنْ عِلْمٍ ۖ إِن يَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا الظَّنَّ ۖ وَإِنَّ الظَّنَّ لَا يُغْنِي مِنَ الْحَقِّ شَيْئًا
But they have no knowledge thereof. They follow but a guess, and verily, guess is no substitute for the truth.
29.
فَأَعْرِضْ عَن مَّن تَوَلَّىٰ عَن ذِكْرِنَا وَلَمْ يُرِدْ إِلَّا الْحَيَاةَ الدُّنْيَا
Therefore 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.
30.
ذَ‌ٰلِكَ مَبْلَغُهُم مِّنَ الْعِلْمِ ۚ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ هُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِمَن ضَلَّ عَن سَبِيلِهِ وَهُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِمَنِ اهْتَدَىٰ
That 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.
31.
وَلِلَّهِ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ لِيَجْزِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسَاءُوا بِمَا عَمِلُوا وَيَجْزِيَ الَّذِينَ أَحْسَنُوا بِالْحُسْنَى
And 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).
32.
الَّذِينَ يَجْتَنِبُونَ كَبَائِرَ الْإِثْمِ وَالْفَوَاحِشَ إِلَّا اللَّمَمَ ۚ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ وَاسِعُ الْمَغْفِرَةِ ۚ هُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِكُمْ إِذْ أَنشَأَكُم مِّنَ الْأَرْضِ وَإِذْ أَنتُمْ أَجِنَّةٌ فِي بُطُونِ أُمَّهَاتِكُمْ ۖ فَلَا تُزَكُّوا أَنفُسَكُمْ ۖ هُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِمَنِ اتَّقَىٰ
Those 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)].
33.
أَفَرَأَيْتَ الَّذِي تَوَلَّىٰ
Did you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) observe him who turned away (from Islam).
34.
وَأَعْطَىٰ قَلِيلًا وَأَكْدَىٰ
And gave a little, then stopped (giving)?
35.
أَعِندَهُ عِلْمُ الْغَيْبِ فَهُوَ يَرَىٰ
Is with him the knowledge of the Unseen so that he sees?
36.
أَمْ لَمْ يُنَبَّأْ بِمَا فِي صُحُفِ مُوسَىٰ
Or is he not informed with what is in the Pages (Scripture) of Musa (Moses),
37.
وَإِبْرَاهِيمَ الَّذِي وَفَّىٰ
And of Ibrahim (Abraham) who fulfilled (or conveyed) all that (Allah ordered him to do or convey):
38.
أَلَّا تَزِرُ وَازِرَةٌ وِزْرَ أُخْرَىٰ
That no burdened person (with sins) shall bear the burden (sins) of another.
39.
وَأَن لَّيْسَ لِلْإِنسَانِ إِلَّا مَا سَعَىٰ
And that man can have nothing but what he does (good or bad).
40.
وَأَنَّ سَعْيَهُ سَوْفَ يُرَىٰ
And that his deeds will be seen.
41.
ثُمَّ يُجْزَاهُ الْجَزَاءَ الْأَوْفَىٰ

49.
وَأَنَّهُ هُوَ رَبُّ الشِّعْرَىٰ
