|Abdullah Yusuf Ali's Translation
||Mohammed Marmaduke Pickthall's
|053.001. By the Star when it goes down,-
||053.001. By the Star when it setteth,
|053.002. Your Companion is neither astray nor being misled.
||053.002. Your comrade erreth not, nor is deceived;
|053.003. Nor does he say (aught) of (his own) Desire.
||053.003. Nor doth he speak of (his own) desire.
|053.004. It is no less than inspiration sent down to him:
||053.004. It is naught save an inspiration that is inspired,
|053.005. He was taught by one Mighty in Power,
||053.005. Which one of mighty powers hath taught him,
|053.006. Endued with Wisdom: for he appeared (in stately form);
||053.006. One vigorous; and he grew clear to view
|053.007. While he was in the highest part of the horizon:
||053.007. When he was on the uppermost horizon.
|053.008. Then he approached and came closer,
||053.008. Then he drew nigh and came down
|053.009. And was at a distance of but two bow-lengths or (even) nearer;
||053.009. Till he was (distant) two bows' length or even nearer,
|053.010. So did (God) convey the inspiration to His Servant- (conveyed) what He (meant) to convey.
||053.010. And He revealed unto His slave that which He revealed.
