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
۞ Holy is He Who carried His servant by night from the Holy Mosque (in Makkah) to the farther Mosque (in Jerusalem) whose surroundings We have blessed that We might show him some of Our Signs. Indeed He alone is All-Hearing, All-Seeing. (1) To Moses We gave the Book and made it a guide for the children of Israel, so that they would not have any one as their guardian other than Me (2) O progeny of those whom We bare with Nuh: verily he was a bondman grateful. (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) Then when the promise for the first of the two came, We raised against you bondmen of Ours endued with exceeding violence, so they entered the dwellings; and it was a promise fulfilled. (5) Then did We grant you the Return as against them: We gave you increase in resources and sons, and made you the more numerous in man-power. (6) "If you do good, you will do so for your own good; if you do ill, you will do it for your own loss." So, when the time of the second prediction comes, (We shall rouse another people) to shame you, and enter the Temple as they had done the first time, and to destroy what they conquered utterly. (7) It may be that your Lord will have mercy on you, but if ye repeat (the crime) We shall repeat (the punishment), and We have appointed hell a dungeon for the disbelievers. (8) Surely, this Quran guides to the most upright way and gives good news to the believers who do good deeds, so that they will have a great reward (9) and [it announces, too,] that We have readied grievous suffering for those who will not believe in the life to come. (10)
