The issue of stars has fascinated human being since the beginning of history. Star is a celestial object which produces the light through the process which is called nuclear fusion. There are also stars known as companion stars, in which each of them is accompanied by another star. This companion star has more than one star which orbits each other. Thus, this article will discuss more on the theory of a companion star based on the astronomists’ views followed by the translation of the holy Qur’an. The findings show that the companion star is presented by the word al-Shi‘ra’ in the Qur’an as stated in surah al-Najm (53):49. However, the star is scientifically known as Canis Major (Sirius). It’s a companion star of Sirius A and Sirius B. This article is expected to be a very useful future reference for the astronomers.
