DOI: 10.1558/equinox.43785


This sūra opens with reports of two ‘visions.’ These are followed by a section rejecting the idea that angels are the ‘daughters of God.’ It concludes with a summary of the contents of ‘the scrolls of Moses and Abraham.’ Q53 takes its title from ‘the star’ mentioned in the opening verse.
