    وَٱلنَّجْمِ إِذَا هَوَىٰ ١ By the stars when they fade away!

  • An Najm Ayah 3
    وَمَا يَنطِقُ عَنِ ٱلْهَوَىٰٓ ٣ Nor does he speak of his own whims.
  • An Najm Ayah 4
    إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا وَحْىٌ يُوحَىٰ ٤ It is only a revelation sent down ?to him?.
  • An Najm Ayah 5
    عَلَّمَهُۥ شَدِيدُ ٱلْقُوَىٰ ٥ He has been taught by one ?angel? of mighty power

  • An Najm Ayah 10
    فَأَوْحَىٰٓ إِلَىٰ عَبْدِهِۦ مَآ أَوْحَىٰ ١٠ Then Allah revealed to His servant what He revealed ?through Gabriel?.
  • An Najm Ayah 11
    مَا كَذَبَ ٱلْفُؤَادُ مَا رَأَىٰٓ ١١ The ?Prophet’s? heart did not doubt what he saw.
  • An Najm Ayah 12
    أَفَتُمَـٰرُونَهُۥ عَلَىٰ مَا يَرَىٰ ١٢ How can you ?O pagans? then dispute with him regarding what he saw?
  • An Najm Ayah 13
    وَلَقَدْ رَءَاهُ نَزْلَةً أُخْرَىٰ ١٣ And he certainly saw that ?angel descend? a second time
  • An Najm Ayah 14
    عِندَ سِدْرَةِ ٱلْمُنتَهَىٰ ١٤ at the Lote Tree of the most extreme limit ?in the seventh heaven?—
  • An Najm Ayah 15
    عِندَهَا جَنَّةُ ٱلْمَأْوَىٰٓ ١٥ near which is the Garden of ?Eternal? Residence—
  • An Najm Ayah 16
    إِذْ يَغْشَى ٱلسِّدْرَةَ مَا يَغْشَىٰ ١٦ while the Lote Tree was overwhelmed with ?heavenly? splendours!

  • An Najm Ayah 21
    أَلَكُمُ ٱلذَّكَرُ وَلَهُ ٱلْأُنثَىٰ ٢١ Do you ?prefer to? have sons while ?you attribute? to Him daughters?
  • An Najm Ayah 22
    تِلْكَ إِذًا قِسْمَةٌ ضِيزَىٰٓ ٢٢ Then this is ?truly? a biased distribution!
  • An Najm Ayah 23
    إِنْ هِىَ إِلَّآ أَسْمَآءٌ سَمَّيْتُمُوهَآ أَنتُمْ وَءَابَآؤُكُم مَّآ أَنزَلَ ٱللَّهُ بِهَا مِن سُلْطَـٰنٍ‌ۚ إِن يَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا ٱلظَّنَّ وَمَا تَهْوَى ٱلْأَنفُسُ‌ۖ وَلَقَدْ جَآءَهُم مِّن رَّبِّهِمُ ٱلْهُدَىٰٓ ٢٣ These ?idols? are mere names that you and your forefathers have made up—a practice Allah has never authorized. They follow nothing but ?inherited? assumptions and whatever ?their? souls desire, although ?true? guidance has already come to them from their Lord.
  • An Najm Ayah 24
    أَمْ لِلْإِنسَـٰنِ مَا تَمَنَّىٰ ٢٤ Or should every person ?simply? have whatever ?intercessors? they desire?
  • An Najm Ayah 25
    فَلِلَّهِ ٱلْأَخِرَةُ وَٱلْأُولَىٰ ٢٥ In fact, to Allah ?alone? belongs this world and the next.
  • An Najm Ayah 26
    ۞ وَكَم مِّن مَّلَكٍ فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ لَا تُغْنِى شَفَـٰعَتُهُمْ شَيْــًٔا إِلَّا مِنۢ بَعْدِ أَن يَأْذَنَ ٱللَّهُ لِمَن يَشَآءُ وَيَرْضَىٰٓ ٢٦ ?Imagine? how many ?noble? angels are in the heavens! ?Even? their intercession would be of no benefit whatsoever, until Allah gives permission to whoever He wills and ?only for the people He? approves.
  • An Najm Ayah 27
    إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِٱلْأَخِرَةِ لَيُسَمُّونَ ٱلْمَلَـٰٓئِكَةَ تَسْمِيَةَ ٱلْأُنثَىٰ ٢٧ Indeed, those who do not believe in the Hereafter label angels as female,
  • An Najm Ayah 28
    وَمَا لَهُم بِهِۦ مِنْ عِلْمٍ‌ۖ إِن يَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا ٱلظَّنَّ‌ۖ وَإِنَّ ٱلظَّنَّ لَا يُغْنِى مِنَ ٱلْحَقِّ شَيْــًٔا ٢٨ although they have no knowledge ?in support? of this. They follow nothing but ?inherited? assumptions. And surely assumptions can in no way replace the truth.
  • An Najm Ayah 29
    فَأَعْرِضْ عَن مَّن تَوَلَّىٰ عَن ذِكْرِنَا وَلَمْ يُرِدْ إِلَّا ٱلْحَيَوٲةَ ٱلدُّنْيَا ٢٩ So turn away ?O Prophet? from whoever has shunned Our Reminder, only seeking the ?fleeting? life of this world.
  • An Najm Ayah 30
    ذَٲلِكَ مَبْلَغُهُم مِّنَ ٱلْعِلْمِ‌ۚ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ هُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِمَن ضَلَّ عَن سَبِيلِهِۦ وَهُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِمَنِ ٱهْتَدَىٰ ٣٠ This is the extent of their knowledge. Surely your Lord knows best who has strayed from His Way and who is ?rightly? guided.
  • An Najm Ayah 31
    وَلِلَّهِ مَا فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَمَا فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ لِيَجْزِىَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَسَـٰٓـــُٔواْ بِمَا عَمِلُواْ وَيَجْزِىَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَحْسَنُواْ بِٱلْحُسْنَى ٣١ To Allah ?alone? belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth so that He may reward the evildoers according to what they did, and reward the good-doers with the finest reward—
  • An Najm Ayah 32
    ٱلَّذِينَ يَجْتَنِبُونَ كَبَـٰٓئِرَ ٱلْإِثْمِ وَٱلْفَوَٲحِشَ إِلَّا ٱللَّمَمَ‌ۚ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ وَٲسِعُ ٱلْمَغْفِرَةِ‌ۚ هُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِكُمْ إِذْ أَنشَأَكُم مِّنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ وَإِذْ أَنتُمْ أَجِنَّةٌ فِى بُطُونِ أُمَّهَـٰتِكُمْ‌ۖ فَلَا تُزَكُّوٓاْ أَنفُسَكُمْ‌ۖ هُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِمَنِ ٱتَّقَىٰٓ ٣٢ those who avoid major sins and shameful deeds, despite ?stumbling on? minor sins. Surely your Lord is infinite in forgiveness. He knew well what would become of you as He created you from the earth and while you were ?still? fetuses in the wombs of your mothers. So do not ?falsely? elevate yourselves. He knows best who is ?truly? righteous.

  • An Najm Ayah 35
    أَعِندَهُۥ عِلْمُ ٱلْغَيْبِ فَهُوَ يَرَىٰٓ ٣٥ Does he have the knowledge of the unseen so that he sees ?the Hereafter??
  • An Najm Ayah 36

    وَإِبْرَٲهِيمَ ٱلَّذِى وَفَّىٰٓ ٣٧ and ?that of? Abraham, who ?perfectly? fulfilled ?his covenant??
