53:1  I swear by the star when it goes down
53:2  Your companion does not err, nor does he go astray
53:3  Nor does he speak out of desire
53:4  It is naught but revelation that is revealed
53:5  The Lord of Mighty Power has taught him
53:6  The Lord of Strength; so he attained completion
53:7  And he is in the highest part of the horizon
53:8  Then he drew near, then he bowe
53:9  So he was the measure of two bows or closer still
53:10  And He revealed to His servant what He revealed
53:11  The heart was not untrue in (making him see) what he saw
53:12  What! do you then dispute with him as to what he saw
53:13  And certainly he saw him in another descent
53:14  At the farthest lote-tree
53:15  Near which is the garden, the place to be resorted to
53:16  When that which covers covered the lote-tree
53:17  The eye did not turn aside, nor did it exceed the limit
53:18  Certainly he saw of the greatest signs of his Lord
53:19  Have you then considered the Lat and the Uzza
53:20  And Manat, the third, the last
53:21  What! for you the males and for Him the females
53:22  This indeed is an unjust division
53:23  They are naught but names which you have named, you and your fathers; Allah has not sent for them any authority. They follow naught but conjecture and the low desires which (their) souls incline to; and certainly the guidance has come to them from their Lord
53:24  Or shall man have what he wishes
53:25  Nay! for Allah is the hereafter and the former (life)
53:26  And how many an angel is there in the heavens whose intercession does not avail at all except after Allah has given permission to whom He pleases and chooses
53:27  Most surely they who do not believe in the hereafter name the angels with female names
53:28  And they have no knowledge of it; they do not follow anything but conjecture, and surely conjecture does not avail against the truth at all
53:29  Therefore turn aside from him who turns his back upon Our reminder and does not desire anything but this world's life
53:30  That is their goal of knowledge; surely your Lord knows best him who goes astray from His path and He knows best him who follows the right direction
53:31  And Allah's is what is in the heavens and what is in the earth, that He may reward those who do evil according to what they do, and (that) He may reward those who do good with goodness
53:32  Those who keep aloof from the great sins and the indecencies but the passing idea; surely your Lord is liberal in forgiving. He knows you best when He brings you forth from the earth and when you are embryos in the wombs of your mothers; therefore do not attribute purity to your souls; He knows him best who guards (against evil)
53:33  Have you then seen him who turns his back
53:34  And gives a little and (then) withholds
53:35  Has he the knowledge of the unseen so that he can see
53:36  Or, has he not been informed of what is in the scriptures of Musa
53:37  And (of) Ibrahim who fulfilled (the commandments)
53:38  That no bearer of burden shall bear the burden of another
53:39  And that man shall have nothing but what he strives for
53:40  And that his striving shall soon be seen
53:41  Then shall he be rewarded for it with the fullest reward
53:42  And that to your Lord is the goal
53:43  And that He it is Who makes (men) laugh and makes (them) weep
53:44  And that He it is Who causes death and gives life
53:45  And that He created pairs, the male and the femal
53:46  From the small seed when it is adapte
53:47  And that on Him is the bringing forth a second time
53:48  And that He it is Who enriches and gives to hold
53:49  And that He is the Lord of the Sirius
53:50  And that He did destroy the Ad of ol
53:51  And Samood, so He spared no
53:52  And the people of Nuh before; surely they were most unjust and inordinate
53:53  And the overthrown cities did He overthrow
53:54  So there covered them that which covered
53:55  Which of your Lord's benefits will you then dispute about
53:56  This is a warner of the warners of old
53:57  The near event draws nigh
53:58  There shall be none besides Allah to remove it
53:59  Do you then wonder at this announcement
53:60  And will you laugh and not weep
53:61  While you are indulging in varieties
53:62  So make obeisance to Allah and serve (Him)
