53:1  By the star when it goes down to set
53:2  your fellow (the Holy Prophet) has neither missed the way, nor did he deviate
53:3  He does not speak out of (his own) desire
53:4  It is but revelation revealed (to him)
53:5  It is taught to him by one (angel) of strong faculties
53:6  the one of vigour. So he stood poised
53:7  while he was on the upper horizon
53:8  Then he drew near, and came down
53:9  so as he was at a distance like that of two bows (joined together), rather even nearer
53:10  Thus He (Allah) revealed to His slave what He revealed
53:11  The heart did not err in what he saw
53:12  Do you quarrel with him in what he sees
53:13  Indeed he saw him another tim
53:14  by Sidrat-ul-Muntaha (the lote-tree in the upper realm)
53:15  near which there is Jannat-ul-Ma‘wa (the Paradise of Abode)
53:16  when the lote-tree was covered by that which covered it
53:17  The eye neither went wrong, nor did exceed the limit
53:18  He has indeed seen a part of the biggest signs of your Lord
53:19  Have you ever considered about the (idols of) Lat and ‘Uzza
53:20  and about the other, the third (idol), namely, Manat,
53:21  Is it that you have males and He (Allah) has females
53:22  If so, it is a bizarre division
53:23  These are nothing but names you and your fathers have invented; Allah has sent down no authority attached to them. They are following nothing but conjecture and what their own souls desire, while guidance from their Lord has surely reached them
53:24  Is it that man can get whatever he wishes
53:25  (No,) because to Allah alone belongs the (good of) the Hereafter and the former life (of this world)
53:26  How many angels there are in the heavens whose intercession cannot benefit (any one) at all, but after Allah allows (it) for whomsoever He wills and pleases
53:27  Those who do not believe in the Hereafter call the angels by names of females
53:28  They do not have knowledge about it. They follow nothing but conjecture, and conjecture is of no avail in (the matter of) Truth
53:29  So, turn away from him who turns away from Our advice, and seeks nothing but (pleasure of) the worldly life
53:30  That is the limit of their access to knowledge. Indeed only your Lord knows well about the one who has gone astray from his way, and He knows well about the one who has adopted the right path
53:31  To Allah belongs whatever there is in the heavens and whatever there is in the earth, so that He gives punishment to evildoers for what they did, and gives good reward to those who did goo
53:32  __those who abstain from the major sins and from shameful acts, except minor involvements. Indeed your Lord is extensive in forgiveness. He knows you more than anyone else (from a time) when He created you from the earth and when you were embryos in the wombs of your mothers. So, do not claim purity (from faults) for your selves. He knows best who is God-fearing
53:33  Did you see the one who turned away
53:34  and gave a little, and stopped
53:35  Does he have knowledge of the Unseen whereby he sees (what he believes)
53:36  Has he not been told of what was (revealed) in the scriptures of Mus
53:37  and of Ibrahim who fulfilled (his duties)
53:38  (It was) that no bearer of burden shall bear the burden of the other
53:39  and that a man shall not deserve but (the reward of) his own effort
53:40  and that his effort will soon be seen
53:41  then he will be recompensed for it in full
53:42  and that to your Lord is the end (of every one)
53:43  and that He is the One who makes (one) laugh and makes (him) weep
53:44  and that He is the One who gives death and gives life
53:45  and that He creates the pairs, male and female
53:46  from a sperm-drop when it is poured (into a womb)
53:47  and that the second creation is undertaken by Him
53:48  and that He is the One who gives wealth and preserves (it)
53:49  and that He is the One who is the Lord of Sirius (the star worshipped by pagans)
53:50  and that He has destroyed the earlier ‘Ad
53:51  and Thamud, so spared none
53:52  and (destroyed) the people of NuH even earlier. Surely they were more unjust and more rebellious
53:53  And He destroyed the overturned towns (of the people of LuT) also
53:54  so enveloped they were by that which enveloped
53:55  Then concerning which of your Lord‘s bounties would you remain in doubt
53:56  This (Prophet) is a warner from the (genus of the) previous warners
53:57  The Imminent (Hour of Judgment) has approached
53:58  There is no one, beside Allah, to remove it
53:59  Do you then wonder at this discourse
53:60  and laugh (at it), and not weep
53:61  while you are engaged in vain play
53:62  Now, fall down in prostration and worship (Allah)
