15. But nay! I swear by the stars,

16. That run their course (and) hide themselves,

17. And the night when it departs,

18. And the morning when it brightens,

19. Most surely it is the Word of an honoured messenger,

20. The possessor of strength, having an honourable place with the Lord of the Dominion,

21. One (to be) obeyed, and faithful in trust.

22. And your companion is not gone mad.

23. And of a truth he saw himself on the clear horizon.

24. Nor of the unseen is he a tenacious concealer.

26. Whither then will you go?

27. It is naught but a reminder for the nations,

28. For him among you who pleases to go straight.

29. And you do not please except that Allah please, the Lord of the worlds.
