Chapter 53: An-Najm
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. By the Star when it goes down,
 Your Companion is neither astray nor being misled,
 Nor does he say (aught) of (his own) Desire.
 It is no less than inspiration sent down to him:
 He was taught by one Mighty in Power,
 Endued with Wisdom: for he appeared (in stately form)
 While he was in the highest part of the horizon:
 Then he approached and came closer,
 And was at a distance of but two bow-lengths or (even) nearer;
 So did (Allah) convey the inspiration to His Servant; (conveyed) what He (meant) to convey.
