53:1  By the star when it sets
53:2  your companion has neither gone astray, nor gone amiss
53:3  Nor does he speak out of [his own] desire
53:4  it is just a revelation that is revealed [to him]
53:5  taught him by One of great powers
53:6  possessed of sound judgement. He settled
53:7  while he was on the highest horizon
53:8  Then he drew nearer and neare
53:9  until he was within two bows’ length or even nearer
53:10  whereat He revealed to His servant whatever He revealed
53:11  The heart did not deny what it saw
53:12  Will you then dispute with him about what he saw?
53:13  Certainly he saw it yet another time
53:14  by the Lote Tree of the Ultimate Boundary
53:15  near which is the Garden of the Abode
53:16  when there covered the Lote Tree what covered it
53:17  The gaze did not swerve, nor did it overstep the bounds
53:18  Certainly he saw some of the greatest signs of his Lord
53:19  Have you considered Lat and ‘Uzza
53:20  and Manat, the third one
53:21  Are you to have males and He females
53:22  That, then, will be an unfair division
53:23  These are but names which you have coined —you and your fathers— for which Allah has not sent down any authority. They follow nothing but conjectures and the desires of the [lower] soul, while there has already come to them the guidance from their Lord
53:24  Shall man have whatever he yearns for
53:25  Yet to Allah belong this world and the Hereafter
53:26  How many an angel there is in the heavens whose intercession is of no avail in any way except after Allah grants permission to whomever He wishes and approves of
53:27  Indeed those who do not believe in the Hereafter give female names to the angels
53:28  They do not have any knowledge of that. They follow nothing but conjectures, and indeed conjecture is no substitute for the truth
53:29  So avoid those who turn away from Our remembrance and desire nothing but the life of the world
53:30  That is the ultimate reach of their knowledge. Indeed your Lord knows best those who stray from His way, and He knows best those who are [rightly] guided
53:31  To Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, that He may requite those who do evil for what they have done, and reward those who do good with the best [of rewards]
53:32  Those who avoid major sins and indecencies, excepting [minor and occasional] lapses. Indeed your Lord is expansive in [His] forgiveness. He knows you best since [the time] He produced you from the earth, and since you were fetuses in the bellies of your mothers. So do not flaunt your piety: He knows best those who are Godwary
53:33  Did you see him who turned away
53:34  gave a little and held off
53:35  Does he have the knowledge of the Unseen so that he sees
53:36  Has he not been informed of what is in the scriptures of Moses
53:37  and of Abraham, who fulfilled [his summons]
53:38  that no bearer shall bear another’s burden
53:39  and that nothing belongs to man except what he strives for
53:40  and that he will soon be shown his endeavour
53:41  then he will be rewarded for it with the fullest reward
53:42  and that the terminus is toward your Lord
53:43  and that it is He who makes [men] laugh, and makes [them] weep
53:44  and that it is He who brings death and gives life
53:45  and that it is He who created the mates, the male and the female
53:46  from a drop of [seminal] fluid when emitted
53:47  and that with Him lies the second genesis
53:48  and that it is He who enriches and grants possessions
53:49  and that it is He who is the Lord of Sirius
53:50  and that it is He who destroyed the former ‘a€d
53:51  and Thamud, sparing none [of them]
53:52  and the people of Noah before that; indeed they were more unjust and rebellious
53:53  and He overthrew the town that was overturned
53:54  covering it with what covered it
53:55  Then which of the bounties of your Lord will you dispute
53:56  This is a warner, [in the tradition] of the warners of old
53:57  The Imminent [Hour] is near at hand
53:58  There is none that may unveil it besides Allah
53:59  Do you then wonder at this discourse
53:60  and laugh and not weep
53:61  while you remain heedless?
53:62  So prostrate yourselves to Allah and worship Him
