053 – Al Najm – The Star

The sura begins with an oath of the falling star leading to the journey to the heavens of the Prophet (Mi’raj) where Divinity declares his closeness by showing him His awesome signs. It continues to look at the gods of the Quraysh created out of conjecture; making up rules as they went along with no authority and concludes with a condemnation of those who seek intercession from angels.
The sura then affirms that basic truths do not change over time. The Qur’an states what is found in the scriptures of Prophets Ibraheem and Musa.
