the Holy Qur'an

Endued with Wisdom: for he appeared (in stately form); (53:6)

While he was in the highest part of the horizon: (53:7)

Then he approached and came closer, (53:8)

And was at a distance of but two bow-lengths or (even) nearer; (53:9)

So did (God) convey the inspiration to His Servant- (conveyed) what He (meant) to convey. (53:10)

The (Prophet's) (mind and) heart in no way falsified that which he saw. (53:11)

Will ye then dispute with him concerning what he saw? (53:12)

For indeed he saw him at a second descent, (53:13)

Near the Lote-tree beyond which none may pass: (53:14)

Near it is the Garden of Abode. (53:15)

Behold, the Lote-tree was shrouded (in mystery unspeakable!) (53:16)

(His) sight never swerved, nor did it go wrong! (53:17)

For truly did he see, of the Signs of his Lord, the Greatest! (53:18)
