53:1  By the star when it falls,
53:2  Your companion errs not, nor is he deluded.
53:3  Nor does he speak out of desire.
53:4  It is not except an inspiration inspired.
53:5  One mighty in power taught him,
53:6  Possessor of sound understanding, and he appeared,
53:7  While he was in the highest horizon.
53:8  Then he drew near and came down.
53:9  And was two bows' length away, or nearer.
53:10  Then He inspired His servant what He inspired.
53:11  The heart belies not what he saw.
53:12  Will you dispute with him on what he saw?
53:13  And certainly he saw him another time,
53:14  By the lote tree none may pass;
53:15  Near it is the Garden of Abode.
53:16  When what covers covered the lote tree.
53:17  The sight deviated not nor was immoderate.
53:18  Certainly he saw the greatest of the signs of his Lord.
53:19  Have you considered Al Lat and Al Uzza
53:20  And Manat the other third?
53:21  For you the male and for Him the female?
53:22  That is an unfair division.
53:23  They are nothing but names you have named, you and your fathers. God has sent down no authority for it. They follow nothing but a guess and what the souls desire. - And certainly the guidance has come to them from their Lord.
53:24  Or shall man have what he wishes?
53:25  But God's is the hereafter and the former.
53:26  How many an angel in the heaven. - their intercession avails not at all, except after God has given permission to whom He will and is pleased with.
53:27  Indeed, those who do not believe in the hereafter surely they name the angels female names.
53:28  And they have no knowledge thereof. They follow not except conjecture, and indeed, conjecture avails not against the truth at all.
53:29  So turn away from whoever turns away from Our remembrance and desires not except the worldly life.
53:30  That is their sum of knowledge; indeed, your Lord knows best who has erred from His way, and He knows best who is guided.
53:31  God's is what is in the heavens and what is in the earth, that He may reward those who do evil with what they have done; and reward those who do good with good.
53:32  Those who avoid the great sins and immoralities, except lesser offences. Indeed, your Lord is of immense forgiveness; He knows best about you, when He produced you from the earth, and when you were embryos in the wombs of your mothers. So do not claim yourselves to be pure; He knows best he who fears.
53:33  Have you considered him who turns his back
53:34  And gives a little, and withholds?
53:35  Does he have the knowledge of the unseen, so he sees?
53:36  Or has he not been informed of what is in the books of Moses
53:37  And Abraham who fulfilled?
53:38  That no burdened one shall bear the burden of another?
53:39  And that man shall have only that for which he strives;
53:40  And that his striving shall soon be seen -
53:41  Then he shall be rewarded for it with the fullest reward;
53:42  And that to your Lord is the goal;
53:43  And that He, He makes laugh, and makes weep;
53:44  And that He, He causes death and gives life;
53:45  And that He created pairs, the male and the female,
53:46  From a sperm when it is emitted;
53:47  And that upon Him is the next production;
53:48  And that He, He enriches and gives possession;
53:49  And that He, He is the Lord of Sirius;
53:50  And that He destroyed the former 'Ad,
53:51  And Thamud He spared not;
53:52  And the people of Noah before, - Indeed, they were most unjust and most immoderate.
53:53  And the overthrown cities He threw down;
53:54  So there covered them that which covered.
53:55  Then which of the favours of your Lord do you dispute?
53:56  This is a warner, of the warners of old.
53:57  The approaching day approaches;
53:58  None beside God can disclose it.
53:59  Do you then marvel at this discourse?
53:60  And do you laugh and not weep?
53:61  While you amuse yourselves?
53:62  So prostrate to God and serve.
