53:1  By the star when it sets
53:2  your companion has neither strayed nor erred
53:3  nor does he speak out of caprice
53:4  It is naught but a revelation revealed
53:5  taught him by one of awesome power
53:6  Possessed of vigor, he stood uprigh
53:7  when he was upon the highest horizon
53:8  Then he drew nigh and came close
53:9  till he was within two bows’ length or nearer
53:10  Then He revealed to His servant what He revealed
53:11  The heart lied not in what it saw
53:12  Do you then dispute with him as to what he saw
53:13  And indeed he saw him another time
53:14  at the lote tree of the boundary
53:15  by which lies the Garden of the refuge
53:16  when there covered the lote tree that which covered
53:17  The gaze swerved not; nor did it transgress
53:18  Indeed, he saw the greatest of the signs of his Lord
53:19  Have you considered al-Lat and al-?Uzz
53:20  and Manat, the third, the other
53:21  Unto you males and unto Him females
53:22  This, then, is an unfair division
53:23  They are naught but names that you have named—you and your fathers—for which God has sent down no authority. They follow naught but conjecture and that which their souls desire, though guidance has surely come to them from their Lord
53:24  Or shall man have whatsoever he longs for
53:25  Yet unto God belong the Hereafter and this world
53:26  And how many an angel is there in the heavens whose intercession avails naught, save after God grants leave unto whomsoever He will and unto the one with whom He is content
53:27  Truly those who believe not in the Hereafter name the angels with female names
53:28  Yet they have no knowledge thereof. They follow naught but conjecture; and surely conjecture avails naught against the Truth
53:29  So shun whosoever turns away from Our Reminder and desires naught but the life of the world
53:30  That is the extent of their knowledge. Surely thy Lord knows best those who stray from His way, and He knows best those who are rightly guided
53:31  Unto God belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is on the earth, that He may requite those who commit evil for that which they have done, and that He may requite those who are virtuous with that which is most beautiful
53:32  those who shun grave sins and indecencies, save what is slight; truly your Lord is of vast forgiveness. He knows you best, from when He brought you forth from the earth and when you were hidden in your mothers’ bellies. So deem not yourselves purified. He knows best the reverent
53:33  Have you seen the one who turned away
53:34  gave little, and then withheld
53:35  Does he have knowledge of the Unseen, such that he sees
53:36  Or has he not been informed of that which is in the scriptures of Mose
53:37  and Abraham, who fulfilled
53:38  that none shall bear the burden of another
53:39  that man shall have naught but that for which he endeavored
53:40  and that his endeavoring shall be seen
53:41  whereupon he will be rewarded for it with the fullest reward
53:42  that the ultimate end is unto thy Lord
53:43  that it is He Who causes laughter and weeping
53:44  that it is He Who causes death and gives life
53:45  and that He creates the two—male and female
53:46  from a drop when emitted
53:47  and that with Him lies the second genesis
53:48  that it is He Who enriches and grants possessions
53:49  that it is He Who is the Lord of Sirius
53:50  and that He destroyed ?Ad the Forme
53:51  and Thamud, sparing none
53:52  and the people of Noah aforetime—truly they were most wrongdoing and most rebellious
53:53  and He razed the subverted cities
53:54  such that there covered them that which covered
53:55  So which of thy Lord’s boons do you dispute
53:56  This is a warning from the warners of old
53:57  The imminent is nigh
53:58  It has no unveiler apart from God
53:59  Do you then marvel at this discourse
53:60  And do you laugh and not weep
53:61  a while you stand with head held high
53:62  So prostrate unto God and worship
