By the star when it goes down, (or vanishes).
Your companion (Muhammad SAW) has neither gone astray nor has erred.
Nor does he speak of (his own) desire.
It is only an Inspiration that is inspired.
He has been taught (this Quran) by one mighty in power [Jibrael (Gabriel)].
Dhu Mirrah (free from any defect in body and mind), Fastawa [then he (Jibrael - Gabriel) rose and became stable]. [Tafsir At-Tabari].
While he [Jibrael (Gabriel)] was in the highest part of the horizon,
Then he [Jibrael (Gabriel)] approached and came closer,
And was at a distance of two bows" length or (even) nearer,
So did (Allah) convey the Inspiration to His slave [Muhammad SAW through Jibrael (Gabriel) ].
The (Prophet"s) heart lied not (in seeing) what he (Muhammad SAW) saw.
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)].
And indeed he (Muhammad SAW) saw him [Jibrael (Gabriel)] at a second descent (i.e. another time).
Near Sidrat-ul-Muntaha [lote-tree of the utmost boundary (beyond which none can pass)],
Near it is the Paradise of Abode.
When that covered the lote-tree which did cover it!
The sight (of Prophet Muhammad SAW) turned not aside (right or left), nor it transgressed beyond (the) limit (ordained for it).
Indeed he (Muhammad SAW) did see, of the Greatest Signs, of his Lord (Allah).
Have you then considered Al-Lat, and Al-"Uzza (two idols of the pagan Arabs).
And Manat (another idol of the pagan Arabs), the other third?
