53:1  By the star when it falls
53:2  You companion has neither erred, nor has he gone astray
53:3  Nor does he speak out of his own desire
53:4  It is nothing but pure revelation revealed by God
53:5  The Lord of the Mighty Powers has taught him
53:6  The One Possessor of Powers which manifest themselves repeatedly. So HE settled Himself on the Throne
53:7  And HE revealed His Word when he was on the uppermost horizon
53:8  Then the Prophet drew near to ALLAH; then ALLAH leaned down towards him
53:9  So that HE became, as it were, one chord to two bows, or closer still
53:10  Then ALLAH revealed to HIS servant that which HE revealed
53:11  The heart of the Prophet lied not in seeing what he saw
53:12  Will you, then, dispute with him about what he saw
53:13  And, certainly, he saw him a second time
53:14  Near the farthest lote tree
53:15  Near which is the Garden of Eternal abode
53:16  This was when that, which covers, covered the lote-tree
53:17  The eye deviated not, nor did it wander
53:18  Surely, he saw the greatest of the Signs of his Lord
53:19  Now tell me about Lat and Uzzh
53:20  And Manat, the third one, another goddess
53:21  `What ! for you the males and for Him the females?
53:22  That, indeed is an unfair division
53:23  These are but names which you have named - you and your fathers - for which ALLAH has sent down no authority. They follow naught but conjecture and what their souls desire, while there has already come to them guidance from their Lord
53:24  Can man have whatever he desires
53:25  Nay, to ALLAH belong the Hereafter and this world
53:26  And how many an angel is there in the heavens, but their intercession shall be of no avail, except after ALLAH gives permission to whomsoever HE wills and pleases
53:27  Those, who believe not in the Hereafter, give the angels female names
53:28  But they have no knowledge thereof. They follow nothing but conjecture; and conjecture avails naught against truth
53:29  So turn away from him who turns his back upon Our remembrance, and seeks nothing but the life of this world
53:30  That is the utmost limit of their knowledge. Verily, thy Lord knows best him who strays away from His way, and HE knows best him who follows guidance
53:31  And to ALLAH belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, that HE may requite those who do evil according to what they have wrought and reward those who do good with what is best
53:32  Those who shun the grave sins and all indecencies except minor faults. Verily, thy Lord is Master of vast forgiveness. HE knows you well from the time when HE created you from the earth, and when you were embryos in the bellies of your mothers. So ascribe not purity to yourselves. HE knows him best who is truly righteous
53:33  Seest thou him who turns away from guidance
53:34  And gives a little, and does it grudgingly
53:35  Has he the knowledge of the unseen, so that he can see his own end
53:36  Has he not been informed of what is in the Scriptures of Moses
53:37  And of Abraham who fulfilled the divine commandments
53:38  That no bearer of burden shall bear the burden of another
53:39  And that man will have nothing but what he strives for
53:40  And that the result of his striving shall soon be known
53:41  Then will he be rewarded for it with the fullest reward
53:42  And that with thy Lord is the final judgment
53:43  And that it is HE WHO makes people laugh and makes them weep
53:44  And that it is HE Who causes death and gives life
53:45  And that HE creates the pairs, male and female
53:46  From a sperm drop when it is emitted
53:47  And that it is for him to bring forth the second creation
53:48  And that it is HE Who enriches and gives contentment
53:49  And that HE is the Lord of Sirius
53:50  And that HE destroyed the first tribe of Ad
53:51  And the tribe of Thamud and HE spared no one
53:52  And HE destroyed the people of Noah before them - verily, they were most unjust and most rebellious
53:53  And HE overthrew the subverted cities of the people of Lot
53:54  So that there covered them that which covered
53:55  Which, then, O man, of the bounties of thy Lord wilt thou dispute
53:56  This Messenger of Ours is a Warner like the Warners of Old
53:57  The Hour of Judgment which was to come has drawn nigh
53:58  None but ALLAH can avert it
53:59  Do you, then, wonder at this announcement
53:60  And do you laugh and weep not
53:61  While you make merry
53:62  So prostrate yourselves before ALLAH and worship HIM
