The Night Journey (Al-Isra)
111 verses, revealed in Mecca after Stories (Al-Qasas) before Jonah (Younus)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
۞ Exalted is He who took His Servant by night from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid al-Aqsa, whose surroundings We have blessed, to show him of Our signs. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Seeing. (1) We gave Moses the Book, and made it a guidance for the children of Israel that they should not take another protector apart from Me. (2) "O offspring of those whom We carried (in the ship) with Nuh (Noah)! Verily, he was a grateful slave." (3) We made it known to the Israelites through the Torah that they would twice commit evil in the land with great transgression and rebellion. (4) When the first of the warnings came to pass, We sent against you Our servants given to terrible warfare: They entered the very inmost parts of your homes; and it was a warning (completely) fulfilled. (5) Then We granted you an upper hand against them, and strengthened you with wealth and children, and multiplied your numbers. (6) Whenever you did good, it was to your own advantage; and whenever you committed evil, it was to your own disadvantage. So, when the time of the fulfilment of the second promise arrived, (We raised other enemies that would) disfigure your faces and enter the Temple (of Jerusalem) as they had entered the first time, and destroy whatever they could lay their hands on. (7) [And We said in the Taurat (Torah)]: "It may be that your Lord may show mercy unto you, but if you return (to sins), We shall return (to Our Punishment). And We have made Hell a prison for the disbelievers. (8) Verily this Qur'an guides to the Way that is the Straight most. To those who believe in it, and do righteous works, it gives the good news that a great reward awaits them, (9) And to those who believe not in the Hereafter, (it announceth) that We have prepared for them a Penalty Grievous (indeed). (10)
