The Night Journey (Al-Isra)
111 verses, revealed in Mecca after Stories (Al-Qasas) before Jonah (Younus)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ Holy is He who took His servant by night from the sacred place of worship [at Makkah] to the remote house of worship [at Jerusalem] -- the precincts of which We have blessed, so that We might show him some of Our signs. Surely, it is He who is All Hearing, and All Seeing. (1) And We vouchsafed unto Musa the Book and We appointed it as a guidance to the Children of Isra'il: take not beside Me a trustee. (2) O progeny of those whom We bare with Nuh: verily he was a bondman grateful. (3) We announced to the children of Israel in the Book: "You will surely create disorder twice in the land, and become exceedingly arrogant." (4) Hence, when the prediction of the first of those two [periods of iniquity] came true, We sent against you some of Our bondmen of terrible prowess in war, and they wrought havoc throughout the land: and so the prediction was fulfilled. (5) Then We gave you once again, a return of victory over them. And We helped you with wealth and children and made you more numerous in man power. (6) If ye did well, ye did well for yourselves; if ye did evil, (ye did it) against yourselves. So when the second of the warnings came to pass, (We permitted your enemies) to disfigure your faces, and to enter your Temple as they had entered it before, and to visit with destruction all that fell into their power. (7) Your Lord may haply be merciful to you. But if you repeat it, We shall do the same. We have constituted Hell as prison for unbelievers. (8) Surely, this Quran guides to the most upright way and gives good news to the believers who do good deeds, so that they will have a great reward (9) As for those who do not believe in the Hereafter, We have prepared a painful punishment. (10)
