The phrase " Sedr- Al-Muntaha" has been used once in the Qur'an (Najm / 14) and is one of the phrases which exact translation has not been well explained and some have even considered it vague and strange in meaning. This phrase is often translated to mean (single Lotus-tree on the edge of paradise); However, this meaning is disproportionate to the context of other verses of the surah and is apparently influenced by several narrations that have a weak document and obvious content. The present research method is descriptive-analytical. The purpose of the research is to find a new meaning in accordance with the contextual evidence, and the researcher seeks an answer to the question of what is the most appropriate translation for the phrase (Sedr- Al-Muntaha). Finally, it was found that the word "Sedr" is morphologically the source of the type and meaning (a kind of special astonishment) and the expressive addition of "Sedr- Al-Muntaha" means (to reach the ultimate level of astonishment). With this explanation that when the Holy Prophet saw the great signs of God, was in a position where the utmost astonishment and wonder appeared. However, his eyes were not impressed by it and he was able to understand those facts with his heart. The new meaning is in accordance with the main meaning of the words and also in accordance with the content of other verses of this surah.
