Translations:
- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)


The surah that opens with the oath of the Divine One swearing by every one of The Stars, as they descend and disappear beneath the horizon, that Muḥammad is indeed God’s awaited Messenger. It takes its name from verse 1, which mentions "the stars" (najm). The surah confirms the divine source of the Prophet’s message and refers to his ascension to heaven during the Night Journey (verse 1 ff.). The surah refutes the claims of the disbelievers about the goddesses and the angels (verse 19 ff.), and lists several truths about God’s power. It closes with a warning of the imminent Day of Judgement.
The surah is also known as: The Pleiades.
