(17) Al-Israa: The Night Journey
or Bani Isra-il: Children of Israel

سورة الإسراء

           

بِـسْـمِ اللهِ الرَّحـْمـنِ الرَّحِـيـمِِ
In the Name of Allah The All Merciful, The Most Merciful.

سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي أَسْرَى بِعَبْدِهِ لَيْلاً مِّنَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ إِلَى الْمَسْجِدِ الأَقْصَى الَّذِي بَارَكْنَا حَوْلَهُ لِنُرِيَهُ مِنْ آيَاتِنَا إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ البَصِيرُ
1. Extolled is the One who journeyed His slave by night from the Sacred Masjid to the Utmost Masjid, the one that We blessed around it, to show him from Our signs.  Assuredly, He is As-Samee, Al-Basseer.

وَآتَيْنَا مُوسَى الْكِتَابَ وَجَعَلْنَاهُ هُدًى لِّبَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ أَلاَّ تَتَّخِذُواْ مِن دُونِي وَكِيلاً
2. And We have provided Moses the writ and made it guidance to the Children of Israel thus, "You take not outside of Me a guardian."

ذُرِّيَّةَ مَنْ حَمَلْنَا مَعَ نُوحٍ إِنَّهُ كَانَ عَبْدًا شَكُورًا
3. ...the progeny of those We carried with Noah, assuredly he was ever a thankful slave.

وَقَضَيْنَا إِلَى بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي الْكِتَابِ لَتُفْسِدُنَّ فِي الأَرْضِ مَرَّتَيْنِ وَلَتَعْلُنَّ عُلُوًّا كَبِيرًا
4. And We have decreed to the Children of Israel in the writ: "Surely you will corrupt on Earth twice, and surely you will heighten (to) a great height."

فَإِذَا جَاء وَعْدُ أُولاهُمَا بَعَثْنَا عَلَيْكُمْ عِبَادًا لَّنَا أُوْلِي بَأْسٍ شَدِيدٍ فَجَاسُواْ خِلاَلَ الدِّيَارِ وَكَانَ وَعْدًا مَّفْعُولاً
5. So when came the first (promise) of them We dispatched on you slaves of Ours of vigorous toughness; so they raided through the homes, and it was a promise done.

ثُمَّ رَدَدْنَا لَكُمُ الْكَرَّةَ عَلَيْهِمْ وَأَمْدَدْنَاكُم بِأَمْوَالٍ وَبَنِينَ وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ أَكْثَرَ نَفِيرًا
6. Then We reverted to you the bout over them and We extended to you wealth and children and We made you more individuals.

إِنْ أَحْسَنتُمْ أَحْسَنتُمْ لِأَنفُسِكُمْ وَإِنْ أَسَأْتُمْ فَلَهَا فَإِذَا جَاء وَعْدُ الآخِرَةِ لِيَسُوؤُواْ وُجُوهَكُمْ وَلِيَدْخُلُواْ الْمَسْجِدَ كَمَا دَخَلُوهُ أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍ وَلِيُتَبِّرُواْ مَا عَلَوْاْ تَتْبِيرًا
7. If you do good, you do good for your selves and if you do ill then it is to it (your self).  So when comes the promise of the later, they surely besmirch your faces and surely enter the Masjid as they entered it the first time; and they surely demolish whatever they heightened, demolishing!

عَسَى رَبُّكُمْ أَن يَرْحَمَكُمْ وَإِنْ عُدتُّمْ عُدْنَا وَجَعَلْنَا جَهَنَّمَ لِلْكَافِرِينَ حَصِيرًا
8. Perhaps your Lord will mercy you, and if you repeat We repeat; and We have made Hell to the repudiators, a confinement.

إِنَّ هَـذَا الْقُرْآنَ يِهْدِي لِلَّتِي هِيَ أَقْوَمُ وَيُبَشِّرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ الَّذِينَ يَعْمَلُونَ الصَّالِحَاتِ أَنَّ لَهُمْ أَجْرًا كَبِيرًا
9. Assuredly this Qur'an guides to what is soundest and heralds glad tidings to the faithful who perform righteous deeds that they have great rewards.

وأَنَّ الَّذِينَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالآخِرَةِ أَعْتَدْنَا لَهُمْ عَذَابًا أَلِيمًا
10. And those who have not faith in the later (life), We have prepared for them painful torment.

وَيَدْعُ الإِنسَانُ بِالشَّرِّ دُعَاءهُ بِالْخَيْرِ وَكَانَ الإِنسَانُ عَجُولاً
11. And the human calls for evil (as) his calling for good, and the human is ever hasty.

وَجَعَلْنَا اللَّيْلَ وَالنَّهَارَ آيَتَيْنِ فَمَحَوْنَا آيَةَ اللَّيْلِ وَجَعَلْنَا آيَةَ النَّهَارِ مُبْصِرَةً لِتَبْتَغُواْ فَضْلاً مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَلِتَعْلَمُواْ عَدَدَ السِّنِينَ وَالْحِسَابَ وَكُلَّ شَيْءٍ فَصَّلْنَاهُ تَفْصِيلاً
12. And We have made the night and the daytime two signs. So We erased the sign of the night and We made the sign of the daytime evident so you seek favors from your Lord and so you learn the number of the years and the calculation; and everything We have detailed, detailing!  

وَكُلَّ إِنسَانٍ أَلْزَمْنَاهُ طَآئِرَهُ فِي عُنُقِهِ وَنُخْرِجُ لَهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ كِتَابًا يَلْقَاهُ مَنشُورًا
13. And every human We impose his flight (of deeds) upon his neck and We issue for him, The Day of Rising, a writ he finds encounters displayed.

اقْرَأْ كَتَابَكَ كَفَى بِنَفْسِكَ الْيَوْمَ عَلَيْكَ حَسِيبًا
14. Read your writ, sufficient (is there) in you today (to be) upon you an accountant.

مَّنِ اهْتَدَى فَإِنَّمَا يَهْتَدي لِنَفْسِهِ وَمَن ضَلَّ فَإِنَّمَا يَضِلُّ عَلَيْهَا وَلاَ تَزِرُ وَازِرَةٌ وِزْرَ أُخْرَى وَمَا كُنَّا مُعَذِّبِينَ حَتَّى نَبْعَثَ رَسُولاً
1
5. Whoever is guided then in fact he is guided for himself and whoever deviates then in fact he deviates on it (his self); and one sinner carries not the sin of another; and not are We ever tormenters until We dispatch a messenger.

وَإِذَا أَرَدْنَا أَن نُّهْلِكَ قَرْيَةً أَمَرْنَا مُتْرَفِيهَا فَفَسَقُواْ فِيهَا فَحَقَّ عَلَيْهَا الْقَوْلُ فَدَمَّرْنَاهَا تَدْمِيرًا
16. And if We want to destroy a village We order its luxuriant, then they diverge in it - so right becomes upon it the Utterance - then We devastate it, devastating!

وَكَمْ أَهْلَكْنَا مِنَ الْقُرُونِ مِن بَعْدِ نُوحٍ وَكَفَى بِرَبِّكَ بِذُنُوبِ عِبَادِهِ خَبِيرًَا بَصِيرًا
17. And many have We destroyed of the generations from after Noah.  And it is sufficient that your Lord, of the guilt of His slaves, is most-informed, most-sighted.

مَّن كَانَ يُرِيدُ الْعَاجِلَةَ عَجَّلْنَا لَهُ فِيهَا مَا نَشَاء لِمَن نُّرِيدُ ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَا لَهُ جَهَنَّمَ يَصْلاهَا مَذْمُومًا مَّدْحُورًا
18. Whoever wants The Haste, We hasten for him in it what We will to whoever We want; then We make for him Hell, he roasts in it disparaged, vanquished.

وَمَنْ أَرَادَ الآخِرَةَ وَسَعَى لَهَا سَعْيَهَا وَهُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ فَأُولَئِكَ كَانَ سَعْيُهُم مَّشْكُورًا
19. And whoever wants the later (life) and pursues it, (with) its pursuit and he is faithful, then those, their pursuit is ever thanked.

كُلاًّ نُّمِدُّ هَـؤُلاء وَهَـؤُلاء مِنْ عَطَاء رَبِّكَ وَمَا كَانَ عَطَاء رَبِّكَ مَحْظُورًا
20. (To) each We extend, these as well as those, from the giving of your Lord; and not ever was the giving of your Lord restrained.
