The Night Journey (Al-Isra)
111 verses, revealed in Mecca after Stories (Al-Qasas) before Jonah (Younus)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ LIMITLESS in His glory is He who transported His servant by night from the Inviolable House of Worship [at Mecca] to the Remote House of Worship [, at Jerusalem] - the environs of which We had blessed - so that We might show him some of Our symbols: for, verily, He alone is all-hearing, all-seeing. (1) We gave Moses the Book and made it a guide for the Children of Israel saying, "Do not take anyone besides Me as a guardian, (2) O you, the offspring of those We bore (in the ark) with Noah, he was indeed a grateful votary. (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) So, when the promise came for the first of the two, We sent against you slaves of Ours given to terrible warfare. They entered the very innermost parts of your homes. And it was a promise (completely) fulfilled. (5) Then, We gave the turn back to you to prevail over them, and We helped you with wealth and children, and made you the greater host. (6) 'If you do good, it is your own souls you do good to, and if you do evil it is to them likewise.' Then, when the promise of the second came to pass, We sent against you Our servants to discountenance you, and to enter the Temple, as they entered it the first time, and to destroy utterly that which they ascended to. (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) This Quran shows the way to that which is the most upright and gives to the righteous believers the glad news of a great reward. (9) and that those who do not believe in the world to come -- we have prepared for them a painful chastisement. (10)
