17 The Night Journey
Al-Isra
2 of 12
Juz 15
Man prayeth for evil as he prayeth for good; for man was ever hasty. (11) We have made the day and night each as evidence (of Our existence). The night is invisible and the day is visible so that you may seek favors from your Lord and determine the number of years and mark the passing of time. For everything We have given a detailed explanation. (12) And We have attached the destiny of every man to his neck; and We shall bring forth a register for him on the Day of Resurrection, which he will find open. (13) "Read your scroll; this Day you suffice to take account of yourself." (14) Whosoever is guided is only guided for his own self, and whosoever goes astray it is only against it. No soul shall bear another's burden. Nor do We punish until we have sent a Messenger. (15) When We decide to destroy a town We warn the rich ones therein who commit evil. Thus it becomes deserving to destruction and We destroy its very foundations. (16) "How many generations have We laid low after Noah, for your Lord knows and notices well enough the sins of His creatures. (17) Unto him who cares for [no more than the enjoyment of] this fleeting life We readily grant thereof as much as We please, [giving] to whomever it is Our will [to give]; but in the end We consign him to [the suffering of] hell; which he will have to endure disgraced and disowned! (18) But he who desires the Hereafter and strives for it in the manner he should, and is a true believer, his striving will come to fruition. (19) To each - these and those - We extend of the bestowment of thy Lord; and the bestowment of thy Lord is never restrained. (20) Behold thou! how We have preferred some of them over some others; and surely: the Hereafter is greater in degrees and greater in preferment. (21) Do not associate with Allah any other god, lest you sit down despised, neglected. (22)
