53:1  And (by) the Star when it tumbles down
53:2  In no way has your companion (The Prophet) erred, and in no way is he misguided
53:3  And in no way does he pronounce (any word) out of prejudice
53:4  Decidedly it is nothing except a revelation revealed
53:5  One of valiant powers has taught him
53:6  Owner of resolute splendor; (Literally: ability to transform; to convey revelation, i.e. Jibril "Angle Gabriel) so he leveled himself
53:7  (When) he was on the most exalted horizon
53:8  Thereafter he (came) within reach, then hung suspended
53:9  So he was at two bows (distance) or (even) closer (still)
53:10  Then He Allah) revealed to His bondman what He revealed
53:11  In no way did the heart-sight lie (about) what it saw
53:12  Will you then wrangle with him about what he sees
53:13  And indeed he did already see him (during) another descent
53:14  At the Lote-Tree of the Utmost Boundary
53:15  At it is the Garden of the Abode
53:16  As that which envelops did envelop the Lote-Tree
53:17  In no way did (his) beholding (i.e., the eyesight) swerve, and in no way was it inordinate
53:18  Indeed he has already seen of the signs of his Lord, the greatest
53:19  Have you then seen Al-Lat and Al- cUzza
53:20  And Manat, (These are the names of idols) the third, the other
53:21  Do you have the male (s) and He the female (s)
53:22  Lo, that were (really) a division most unreasonable
53:23  Decidedly they are nothing except names you have named, you and your fathers. In no way has Allah sent down concerning them any all-binding authority. Decidedly they closely follow nothing except surmise and what (prejudices) the selves yearn to; and indeed the guidance has already come to them from their Lord
53:24  Or even should man have whatever he covets
53:25  Yet, to Allah belongs the Hereafter, and the First (life)
53:26  And how many an Angel (there is) in the heavens whose intercession does not avail anything except even after Allah gives permission to whomever He decides and He is satisfied
53:27  Surely the ones who do not believe in the Hereafter do indeed name the Angels with female naming
53:28  And in no way do they have any knowledge thereof. Decidedly they closely follow (nothing) except surmise, and surely surmise does not avail anything against the Truth
53:29  So veer away from him who turns back from Our Remembrance and is not willing (to seek anything) except the present life (Literally: the lowly life, i.e., the life of this world)
53:30  That is their attainment of knowledge. Surely your Lord is He Who knows best the ones who have erred away from His way, and He knows best the ones who are guided
53:31  And to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth that He may recompense the ones who have done odious (deeds) for what they have done and recompense the ones who have done fair (deeds) with the fairest reward
53:32  The ones who avoid the great (kinds) of vice and obscenities, except lesser offences; surely your Lord is Ever-Embracing in (His) forgiveness. He knows you best, as He brought you into being from the earth, and as you were embryos in your mothers' bellies; so do not (consider) yourselves cleansed; (only) He knows best him who is pious
53:33  Have you (The Prophet) then seen him who turns away
53:34  And gives little and (then) parsimoniously
53:35  Does he have in his presence the knowledge of the Unseen, so he sees
53:36  Or even has he not been fully informed of what is in the Scrolls of Musa (Moses)
53:37  And Ibrahim, (Abraham) who constantly fulfilled the Message
53:38  That no encumbered self will be encumbered with the encumbrance of another
53:39  And that man will have nothing except that for which he has endeavored (to achieve)
53:40  And that his endeavor will eventually be seen
53:41  (And) thereafter he will be recompensed for it with the fullest recompense
53:42  And that to your Lord is the final (End); (Or: judgment; recompense)
53:43  And that He, Ever He, makes to laugh, and He makes to weep
53:44  And that He Ever He, makes to die, and He makes to live
53:45  And that He created the two pairs, the male and the female
53:46  From a sperm drop when it is ejaculated
53:47  And that upon Him (rests) the other engendering
53:48  And that He, Ever He, enriches and gives property
53:49  And that He, Ever He, is The Lord of Sirius; (Ash-Shicra, a star that was worshiped before Islam)
53:50  And that He caused to perish the earliest Aad
53:51  And Thamud; so He did not spare (any of them)
53:52  And the people of Nuh (Noah) earlier; surely they were the ones who were more unjust and more inordinate
53:53  And the City of Falsehood, He (also) made it sweep down
53:54  So that (there) He constantly enveloped it whatever He constantly enveloped
53:55  Then whichever of your Lord's boons do you wrangle about
53:56  This is a Warner, of the earliest Warnings
53:57  TheImminent is imminent
53:58  Apart from Allah, none can lift it off
53:59  Do you then wonder at this discourse
53:60  And do you laugh, and do you not weep
53:61  (While) you amuse yourselves
53:62  So prostrate yourselves to Allah and worship (Him).A prostration is to be performed her
