سورة الإسراء

17. Al-Isra

The night journey


Total verses: 111
Revealed in: Mecca
Sajdah on verse: 109

Translations:
- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)


The surah that mentions the miracle of The Night Journey, wherein God transported His servant Muḥammad in a single night from the Sacred Mosque of Mecca to al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, to show him some of His most wondrous signs. God caused Muhammad, in the space of a single night, to journey from Mecca to Jerusalem and from there to heaven and back again. It takes its name from this subject, as relating to the celestial journey (miʿrāj) of the Prophet, mentioned in verse 1 and again in verse 60. The surah is framed by references to the Children of Israel at the beginning, and to Pharaoh at the end. The bulk of the surah deals with the Quran as guidance and warning, Muḥammad, and the nature of prophecy, especially the fact that he is a human being and incapable himself of producing miracles. It also warns of Iblis’s promise to tempt mankind and of the fate of the disbelievers, and it gives a series of commandments (verse 22 ff.).
The surah is also known as Glory, The Children of Israel

BANI ISRAIL [036 TO End]


وَلَقَدْ آتَيْنَا مُوسَىٰ تِسْعَ آيَاتٍ بَيِّنَاتٍ ۖ فَاسْأَلْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ إِذْ جَاءَهُمْ فَقَالَ لَهُ فِرْعَوْنُ إِنِّي لَأَظُنُّكَ يَا مُوسَىٰ مَسْحُورًا ﴿١٠١﴾
١٠١ - اور ہم نے موسیٰ کو نو کھلی نشانیاں دیں تو بنی اسرائیل سے دریافت کرلو کہ جب وہ ان کے پاس آئے تو فرعون نے ان سے کہا کہ موسیٰ میں خیال کرتا ہوں کہ تم پر جادو کیا گیا ہے .
[17:101] And We had certainly given Moses nine evident signs, so ask the Children of Israel [about] when he came to them and Pharaoh said to him, "Indeed I think, O Moses, that you are affected by magic."
[Transliteration] Wa laqad aatainaa Moosaa tis'a Aayaatim baiyinaatin fas'al Baneee Israaa'eela iz jaaa'ahum faqaala lahoo Fir'awnu inee la azunnuka yaa Moosaa mas hooraa

قَالَ لَقَدْ عَلِمْتَ مَا أَنْزَلَ هَٰؤُلَاءِ إِلَّا رَبُّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ بَصَائِرَ وَإِنِّي لَأَظُنُّكَ يَا فِرْعَوْنُ مَثْبُورًا ﴿١٠٢﴾
١٠٢ - انہوں نے کہا کہ تم یہ جانتے ہو کہ آسمانوں اور زمین کے پروردگار کے سوا ان کو کسی نے نازل نہیں کیا۔ (اور وہ بھی تم لوگوں کے) سمجھانے کو۔ اور اے فرعون میں خیال کرتا ہوں کہ تم ہلاک ہوجاؤ گے .
[17:102] [Moses] said, "You have already known that none has sent down these [signs] except the Lord of the heavens and the earth as evidence, and indeed I think, O Pharaoh, that you are destroyed."

فَأَرَادَ أَنْ يَسْتَفِزَّهُمْ مِنَ الْأَرْضِ فَأَغْرَقْنَاهُ وَمَنْ مَعَهُ جَمِيعًا ﴿١٠٣﴾
١٠٣ - تو اس نے چاہا کہ ان کو سر زمین (مصر) سے نکال دے تو ہم نے اس کو اور جو اس کے ساتھ تھے سب کو ڈبو دیا .
[17:103] So he intended to drive them from the land, but We drowned him and those with him all together.

وَقُلْنَا مِنْ بَعْدِهِ لِبَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ اسْكُنُوا الْأَرْضَ فَإِذَا جَاءَ وَعْدُ الْآخِرَةِ جِئْنَا بِكُمْ لَفِيفًا ﴿١٠٤﴾
١٠٤ - اور اس کے بعد بنی اسرائیل سے کہا کہ تم اس ملک میں رہو سہو۔ پھر جب آخرت کا وعدہ آجائے گا تو ہم تم سب کو جمع کرکے لے آئیں گے .
[17:104] And We said after Pharaoh to the Children of Israel, "Dwell in the land, and when there comes the promise of the Hereafter, We will bring you forth in [one] gathering."
