The Night Journey (Al-Isra)
111 verses, revealed in Mecca after Stories (Al-Qasas) before Jonah (Younus)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
۞ Exalted is He who carried His worshiper (Prophet Muhammad) to travel in the night from the Sacred Mosque to the Furthest Mosque which We have blessed around it so that We might show him some of Our signs. He is the Hearer, the Seer. (1) We gave Moses the Book and made it a guide for the Children of Israel. 'Take no guardian other than Me. (2) O progeny of those whom We bare with Nuh: verily he was a bondman grateful. (3) We forewarned the Children of Israel in the Scripture, "Twice you shall commit evil in the land. You shall become great transgressors." (4) So, when the promise of the first of these came to pass, We sent against you servants of Ours, men of great might, and they went through the habitations, and it was a promise performed. (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, you will do good for your own souls, and if you do evil, it shall be for them. So when the second promise came (We raised another people) that they may bring you to grief and that they may enter the mosque as they entered it the first time, and that they might destroy whatever they gained ascendancy over with utter destruction. (7) Belike your Lord may yet have mercy on you; and if ye still revert, We will revert. And We have appointed Hell for the infidels a prison. (8) Surely this Koran guides to the way that is straightest and gives good tidings to the believers who do deeds of righteousness, that theirs shall be a great wage, (9) and [it announces, too,] that We have readied grievous suffering for those who will not believe in the life to come. (10)
