Surat An-Najm (The Star) - سورة النجم

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Muhsin Khan
: By the star when it goes down, (or vanishes).
Muhsin Khan
: Your companion (Muhammad SAW) has neither gone astray nor has erred.
Muhsin Khan
: Nor does he speak of (his own) desire.
Muhsin Khan
: It is only an Inspiration that is inspired.
Muhsin Khan
: He has been taught (this Quran) by one mighty in power [Jibrael (Gabriel)].
Muhsin Khan
: Dhu Mirrah (free from any defect in body and mind), Fastawa [then he (Jibrael - Gabriel) rose and became stable]. [Tafsir At-Tabari].
Muhsin Khan
: While he [Jibrael (Gabriel)] was in the highest part of the horizon,
Muhsin Khan
: Then he [Jibrael (Gabriel)] approached and came closer,
Muhsin Khan
: And was at a distance of two bows' length or (even) nearer,
Muhsin Khan
: So did (Allah) convey the Inspiration to His slave [Muhammad SAW through Jibrael (Gabriel) ].
Muhsin Khan
: The (Prophet's) heart lied not (in seeing) what he (Muhammad SAW) saw.
Muhsin Khan
: Will you then dispute with him (Muhammad SAW) about what he saw [during the Mi'raj: (Ascent of the Prophet SAW over the seven heavens)].
Muhsin Khan
: And indeed he (Muhammad SAW) saw him [Jibrael (Gabriel)] at a second descent (i.e. another time).
Muhsin Khan
: Near Sidrat-ul-Muntaha [lote-tree of the utmost boundary (beyond which none can pass)],
Muhsin Khan
: Near it is the Paradise of Abode.
Muhsin Khan
: When that covered the lote-tree which did cover it!
Muhsin Khan
: The sight (of Prophet Muhammad SAW) turned not aside (right or left), nor it transgressed beyond (the) limit (ordained for it).
Muhsin Khan
: Indeed he (Muhammad SAW) did see, of the Greatest Signs, of his Lord (Allah).
Muhsin Khan
: Have you then considered Al-Lat, and Al-'Uzza (two idols of the pagan Arabs).
Muhsin Khan
: And Manat (another idol of the pagan Arabs), the other third?
Muhsin Khan
: Is it for you the males and for Him the females?
Muhsin Khan
: That indeed is a division most unfair!
Muhsin Khan
: They are but names which you have named, you and your fathers, for which Allah has sent down no authority. They follow but a guess and that which they themselves desire, whereas there has surely come to them the Guidance from their Lord!
Muhsin Khan
: Or shall man have what he wishes?
Muhsin Khan
: But to Allah belongs the last (Hereafter) and the first (the world).
Muhsin Khan
: And there are many angels in the heavens, whose intercession will avail nothing except after Allah has given leave for whom He wills and pleases.
Muhsin Khan
: Verily, those who believe not in the Hereafter, name the angels with female names.
Muhsin Khan
: While they have no knowledge thereof. They follow but a guess, and verily, guess is no substitute for the truth.
Muhsin Khan
: Therefore withdraw (O Muhammad SAW) from him who turns away from Our Reminder (this Quran) and desires nothing but the life of this world.
Muhsin Khan
: That is what they could reach of knowledge. Verily, your Lord it is He Who knows best him who goes astray from His Path, and He knows best him who receives guidance.
Muhsin Khan
: And to Allah belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, that He may requite those who do evil with that which they have done (i.e. punish them in Hell), and reward those who do good, with what is best (i.e. Paradise).
Muhsin Khan
: Those who avoid great sins (see the Quran, Verses: 6:152,153) and Al-Fawahish (illegal sexual intercourse, etc.) except the small faults, verily, your Lord is of vast forgiveness. He knows you well when He created you from the earth (Adam), and when you were fetuses in your mothers' wombs. So ascribe not purity to yourselves. He knows best him who fears Allah and keep his duty to Him [i.e. those who are Al-Muttaqun (pious - see V.2:2)].
Muhsin Khan
: Did you (O Muhammad SAW) observe him who turned away (from Islam).
Muhsin Khan
: And gave a little, then stopped (giving)?
Muhsin Khan
: Is with him the knowledge of the unseen so that he sees?
Muhsin Khan
: Or is he not informed with what is in the Pages (Scripture) of Musa (Moses),
Muhsin Khan
: And of Ibrahim (Abraham) who fulfilled (or conveyed) all that (what Allah ordered him to do or convey),
Muhsin Khan
: That no burdened person (with sins) shall bear the burden (sins) of another.
Muhsin Khan
: And that man can have nothing but what he does (good or bad).
Muhsin Khan
: And that his deeds will be seen,
Muhsin Khan
: Then he will be recompensed with a full and the best recompense.
Muhsin Khan
: And that to your Lord (Allah) is the End (Return of everything).
Muhsin Khan
: And that it is He (Allah) Who makes (whom He wills) laugh, and makes (whom He wills) weep;
Muhsin Khan
: And that it is He (Allah) Who causes death and gives life;
Muhsin Khan
: And that He (Allah) creates the pairs, male and female,
Muhsin Khan
: From Nutfah (drops of semen male and female discharges) when it is emitted;
Muhsin Khan
: And that upon Him (Allah) is another bringing forth (Resurrection);
Muhsin Khan
: And that it is He (Allah) Who gives much or a little (or gives wealth and contentment),
Muhsin Khan
: And that He (Allah) is the Lord of Sirius (the star which the pagan Arabs used to worship);
Muhsin Khan
: And that it is He (Allah) Who destroyed the former 'Ad (people),
Muhsin Khan
: And Thamud (people). He spared none of them.
Muhsin Khan
: And the people of Nuh (Noah) aforetime, verily, they were more unjust and more rebellious and transgressing [in disobeying Allah and His Messenger Nuh (Noah) ].
Muhsin Khan
: And He destroyed the overthrown cities [of Sodom to which Prophet Lout (Lot) was sent].
Muhsin Khan
: So there covered them that which did cover (i.e. torment with stones).
Muhsin Khan
: Then which of the Graces of your Lord (O man!) will you doubt.
Muhsin Khan
: This (Muhammad SAW) is a warner (Messenger) of the (series of) warners (Messengers) of old.
Muhsin Khan
: The Day of Resurrection draws near,
Muhsin Khan
: None besides Allah can avert it, (or advance it, or delay it).
Muhsin Khan
: Do you then wonder at this recital (the Quran)?
Muhsin Khan
: And you laugh at it and weep not,
Muhsin Khan
: Wasting your (precious) lifetime in pastime and amusements (singing, etc.).
Muhsin Khan
: So fall you down in prostration to Allah, and worship Him (Alone).
