53:1  By the Star when it setteth
53:2  Your comrade erreth not, nor is deceived
53:3  Nor doth he speak of (his own) desire
53:4  It is naught save an inspiration that is inspired
53:5  Which one of mighty powers hath taught him
53:6  One vigorous; and he grew clear to vie
53:7  When he was on the uppermost horizon
53:8  Then he drew nigh and came dow
53:9  Till he was (distant) two bows' length or even nearer
53:10  And He revealed unto His slave that which He revealed
53:11  The heart lied not (in seeing) what it saw
53:12  Will ye then dispute with him concerning what he seeth
53:13  And verily he saw him yet another tim
53:14  By the lote-tree of the utmost boundary
53:15  Nigh unto which is the Garden of Abode
53:16  When that which shroudeth did enshroud the lote-tree
53:17  The eye turned not aside nor yet was overbold
53:18  Verily he saw one of the greater revelations of his Lord
53:19  Have ye thought upon Al-Lat and Al-'Uzz
53:20  And Manat, the third, the other
53:21  Are yours the males and His the females
53:22  That indeed were an unfair division
53:23  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
53:24  Or shall man have what he coveteth
53:25  But unto Allah belongeth the after (life), and the former
53:26  And how many angels are in the heavens whose intercession availeth naught save after Allah giveth leave to whom He chooseth and accepteth
53:27  Lo! it is those who disbelieve in the Hereafter who name the angels with the names of females
53:28  And they have no knowledge thereof. They follow but a guess, and lo! a guess can never take the place of the truth
53:29  Then withdraw (O Muhammad) from him who fleeth from Our remembrance and desireth but the life of the world
53:30  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
53:31  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
53:32  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)
53:33  Didst thou (O Muhammad) observe him who turned away
53:34  And gave a little, then was grudging
53:35  Hath he knowledge of the Unseen so that he seeth
53:36  Or hath he not had news of what is in the books of Mose
53:37  And Abraham who paid his debt
53:38  That no laden one shall bear another's load
53:39  And that man hath only that for which he maketh effort
53:40  And that his effort will be seen
53:41  And afterward he will be repaid for it with fullest payment
53:42  And that thy Lord, He is the goal
53:43  And that He it is who maketh laugh, and maketh weep
53:44  And that He it is Who giveth death and giveth life
53:45  And that He createth the two spouses, the male and the female
53:46  From a drop (of seed) when it is poured forth
53:47  And that He hath ordained the second bringing forth
53:48  And that He it is Who enricheth and contenteth
53:49  And that He it is Who is the Lord of Sirius
53:50  And that He destroyed the former (tribe of) A'ad
53:51  And (the tribe of) Thamud He spared not
53:52  And the folk of Noah aforetime, Lo! they were more unjust and more rebellious
53:53  And Al-Mu'tafikah He destroye
53:54  So that there covered them that which did cover
53:55  Concerning which then, of the bounties of thy Lord, canst thou dispute
53:56  This is a warner of the warners of old
53:57  The threatened Hour is nigh
53:58  None beside Allah can disclose it
53:59  Marvel ye then at this statement
53:60  And laugh and not weep
53:61  While ye amuse yourselves
53:62  Rather prostrate yourselves before Allah and serve Him
