Surah An-Najm Translated in English
وَالنَّجْمِ إِذَا هَوَىٰ
By the star when it descends,
مَا ضَلَّ صَاحِبُكُمْ وَمَا غَوَىٰ
Your companion [i.e., Muḥammad] has not strayed, nor has he erred,
وَمَا يَنْطِقُ عَنِ الْهَوَىٰ
Nor does he speak from [his own] inclination.
إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا وَحْيٌ يُوحَىٰ
It is not but a revelation revealed,
عَلَّمَهُ شَدِيدُ الْقُوَىٰ
Taught to him by one intense in strength [i.e., Gabriel] -
ذُو مِرَّةٍ فَاسْتَوَىٰ
One of soundness. And he rose to [his] true form
وَهُوَ بِالْأُفُقِ الْأَعْلَىٰ
While he was in the higher [part of the] horizon.
ثُمَّ دَنَا فَتَدَلَّىٰ
Then he approached and descended
فَكَانَ قَابَ قَوْسَيْنِ أَوْ أَدْنَىٰ
And was at a distance of two bow lengths or nearer.
فَأَوْحَىٰ إِلَىٰ عَبْدِهِ مَا أَوْحَىٰ
And he revealed to His Servant what he revealed [i.e., conveyed].
