17 The Night Journey
Al-Isra

Juz 15
And man prays for evil as he ought to pray for good, and man is ever hasty. (11) We have appointed the night and the day as two signs; then We have blotted out the sign of the night, and made the sign of the day to see, and that you may seek bounty from your Lord, and that you may know the number of the years, and the reckoning; and everything We have distinguished very distinctly. (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 thine book; sufficeth today thy soul against thee as a reckoner. (14) One who follows guidance does so for himself and one who goes astray does so against his soul. No one will suffer for the sins of others. We have never punished anyone without sending them Our Messenger first. (15) When We desire to annihilate a village, We command those who live in ease, but they commit evil therein, then the Word is realized against it and it is utterly annihilated. (16) How many generations We have destroyed after Noah! Thy Lord suffices as one who is aware of and sees the sins of His servants. (17) Whoever desires this fleeting one, We may give him quickly whatever We will, to whomever We will; and then assign hell for him; for him to enter it condemned, pushed around. (18) The effort of one who faithfully strives hard for the (happiness) of the life to come will be appreciated (by God). (19) To all of these as well as those We shall provide the wherewithal of this life in the present world by dint of your Lord's Bounty; and from none shall the Bounty of your Lord be withheld. (20) See how We prefer one of them above another, and verily the Hereafter will be greater in degrees and greater in preferment. (21) Set not up with God another god, or thou wilt sit condemned and forsaken. (22)
