053.000 The Star

 

053.001

By the Star when it setteth,

053.002

Your comrade erreth not, nor is deceived;

053.003

Nor doth he speak of (his own) desire.

053.004

It is naught save an inspiration that is inspired,

053.005

Which one of mighty powers hath taught him,

053.006

One vigorous; and he grew clear to view

053.007

When he was on the uppermost horizon.

053.008

Then he drew nigh and came down

053.009

Till he was (distant) two bows' length or even nearer,

053.010

And He revealed unto His slave that which He revealed.

053.011

The heart lied not (in seeing) what it saw.

053.012

Will ye then dispute with him concerning what he seeth ?

053.013

And verily he saw him yet another time

053.014

By the lote-tree of the utmost boundary,

053.015

Nigh unto which is the Garden of Abode.

053.016

When that which shroudeth did enshroud the lote-tree,

053.017

The eye turned not aside nor yet was overbold.

053.018

Verily he saw one of the greater revelations of his Lord.

053.019

Have ye thought upon Al-Lat and Al-'Uzza

053.020

And Manat, the third, the other ?

053.021

Are yours the males and His the females ?

053.022

That indeed were an unfair division!

053.023

They 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.

053.024

Or shall man have what he coveteth ?

053.025

But unto Allah belongeth the after (life), and the former.

053.026

And how many angels are in the heavens whose intercession availeth naught save after Allah giveth leave to whom He chooseth and accepteth.

053.027

Lo! it is those who disbelieve in the Hereafter who name the angels with the names of females.

053.028

And they have no knowledge thereof. They follow but a guess, and lo! a guess can never take the place of the truth.

053.029

Then withdraw (O Muhammad) from him who fleeth from Our remembrance and desireth but the life of the world.

053.030

Such 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.

053.031

And 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.

053.032

Those 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).

053.033

Didst thou (O Muhammad) observe him who turned away,

053.034

And gave a little, then was grudging ?

053.035

Hath he knowledge of the Unseen so that he seeth ?

053.036

Or hath he not had news of what is in the books of Moses

053.037

And Abraham who paid his debt:

053.038

That no laden one shall bear another's load,

053.039

And that man hath only that for which he maketh effort,

053.040

And that his effort will be seen.

053.041

And afterward he will be repaid for it with fullest payment;

053.042

And that thy Lord, He is the goal;

053.043

And that He it is who maketh laugh, and maketh weep,

053.044

And that He it is Who giveth death and giveth life;

053.045

And that He createth the two spouses, the male and the female,

053.046

From a drop (of seed) when it is poured forth;

053.047

And that He hath ordained the second bringing forth;

053.048

And that He it is Who enricheth and contenteth;

053.049

And that He it is Who is the Lord of Sirius;

053.050

And that He destroyed the former (tribe of) A'ad,

053.051

And (the tribe of) Thamud He spared not;

053.052

And the folk of Noah aforetime, Lo! they were more unjust and more rebellious;

053.053

And Al-Mu'tafikah He destroyed

053.054

So that there covered them that which did cover.

053.055

Concerning which then, of the bounties of thy Lord, canst thou dispute ?

053.056

This is a warner of the warners of old.

053.057

The threatened Hour is nigh.

053.058

None beside Allah can disclose it.

053.059

Marvel ye then at this statement,

053.060

And laugh and not weep,

053.061

While ye amuse yourselves ?

053.062

Rather prostrate yourselves before Allah and serve Him.
