In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
I swear by the star when it goes down.
[53.2] Your companion does not
err, nor does he go astray;
[53.3] Nor does he speak out of desire.
[53.4] It is naught but revelation that is revealed,
The Lord of Mighty Power has taught him,
[53.6] The Lord of Strength;
so he attained completion,
[53.7] And he is in the highest part of
[53.8] Then he drew near, then he bowed
So he was the measure of two bows or closer still.
[53.10] And He revealed
to His servant what He revealed.
[53.11] The heart was not untrue in
(making him see) what he saw.
[53.12] What! do you then dispute with
him as to what he saw?
[53.13] And certainly he saw him in another
[53.14] At the farthest lote-tree;
which is the garden, the place to be resorted to.
[53.16] When that
which covers covered the lote-tree;
[53.17] The eye did not turn aside,
nor did it exceed the limit.
[53.18] Certainly he saw of the greatest
signs of his Lord.
[53.19] Have you then considered the Lat and the
[53.20] And Manat, the third, the last?
for you the males and for Him the females!
[53.22] This indeed is an
[53.23] They are naught but names which you have named,
you and your fathers; Allah has not sent for them any authority. They follow naught
but conjecture and the low desires which (their) souls incline to; and certainly
the guidance has come to them from their Lord.
[53.24] Or shall man
have what he wishes?
[53.25] Nay! for Allah is the hereafter and the
[53.26] And how many an angel is there in the heavens
whose intercession does not avail at all except after Allah has given permission
to whom He pleases and chooses.
[53.27] Most surely they who do not
believe in the hereafter name the angels with female names.
And they have no knowledge of it; they do not follow anything but conjecture,
and surely conjecture does not avail against the truth at all.
Therefore turn aside from him who turns his back upon Our reminder and does not
desire anything but this world's life.
[53.30] That is their goal of
knowledge; surely your Lord knows best him who goes astray from His path and He
knows best him who follows the right direction.
[53.31] And Allah's
is what is in the heavens and what is in the earth, that He may reward those who
do evil according to what they do, and (that) He may reward those who do good
[53.32] Those who keep aloof from the great sins and
the indecencies but the passing idea; surely your Lord is liberal in forgiving.
He knows you best when He brings you forth from the earth and when you are embryos
in the wombs of your mothers; therefore do not attribute purity to your souls;
He knows him best who guards (against evil).
[53.33] Have you then
seen him who turns his back?
[53.34] And gives a little and (then)
[53.35] Has he the knowledge of the unseen so that he can
[53.36] Or, has he not been informed of what is in the scriptures
[53.37] And (of) Ibrahim who fulfilled (the commandments):
[53.38] That no bearer of burden shall bear the burden of another-
[53.39] And that man shall have nothing but what he strives for-
And that his striving shall soon be seen-
[53.41] Then shall he be
rewarded for it with the fullest reward-
[53.42] And that to your Lord
is the goal-
[53.43] And that He it is Who makes (men) laugh and makes
[53.44] And that He it is Who causes death and gives life-
[53.45] And that He created pairs, the male and the female
From the small seed when it is adapted
[53.47] And that on Him is the
bringing forth a second time;
[53.48] And that He it is Who enriches
and gives to hold;
[53.49] And that He is the Lord of the Sirius;
[53.50] And that He did destroy the Ad of old
[53.51] And Samood,
so He spared not
[53.52] And the people of Nuh before; surely they
were most unjust and inordinate;
[53.53] And the overthrown cities
did He overthrow,
[53.54] So there covered them that which covered.
[53.55] Which of your Lord's benefits will you then dispute about?
[53.56] This is a warner of the warners of old.
near event draws nigh.
[53.58] There shall be none besides Allah to
[53.59] Do you then wonder at this announcement?
And will you laugh and not weep?
[53.61] While you are indulging in
[53.62] So make obeisance to Allah and serve (Him).
