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

وَآتِ ذَا الْقُرْبَىٰ حَقَّهُ وَالْمِسْكِينَ وَابْنَ السَّبِيلِ وَلَا تُبَذِّرْ تَبْذِيرًا ﴿٢٦﴾
٢٦ - اور رشتہ داروں اور محتاجوں اور مسافروں کو ان کا حق ادا کرو۔ اور فضول خرچی سے مال نہ اُڑاؤ .
[17:26] And give the relative his right, and [also] the poor and the traveler, and do not spend wastefully.
[Transliteration] Wa aati zal qurbaa haqqahoo walmiskeena wabnas sabeeli wa laa tubazzir tabzeeraa

إِنَّ الْمُبَذِّرِينَ كَانُوا إِخْوَانَ الشَّيَاطِينِ ۖ وَكَانَ الشَّيْطَانُ لِرَبِّهِ كَفُورًا ﴿٢٧﴾
٢٧ - کہ فضول خرچی کرنے والے تو شیطان کے بھائی ہیں۔ اور شیطان اپنے پروردگار (کی نعمتوں) کا کفر ان کرنے والا (یعنی ناشکرا) ہے .
[17:27] Indeed, the wasteful are brothers of the devils, and ever has Satan been to his Lord ungrateful.

وَإِمَّا تُعْرِضَنَّ عَنْهُمُ ابْتِغَاءَ رَحْمَةٍ مِنْ رَبِّكَ تَرْجُوهَا فَقُلْ لَهُمْ قَوْلًا مَيْسُورًا ﴿٢٨﴾
٢٨ - اور اگر تم نے اپنے پروردگار کی رحمت (یعنی فراخ دستی) کے انتظار میں جس کی تمہیں امید ہو ان (مستحقین) کی طرف توجہ نہ کرسکو اُن سے نرمی سے بات کہہ دیا کرو .
[17:28] And if you [must] turn away from the needy awaiting mercy from your Lord which you expect, then speak to them a gentle word.
[Transliteration] Wa immaa turidanna 'anhumub tighaaa'a rahmatim mir rabbika tarjoohaa faqul lahum qawlam maisooraa

وَلَا تَجْعَلْ يَدَكَ مَغْلُولَةً إِلَىٰ عُنُقِكَ وَلَا تَبْسُطْهَا كُلَّ الْبَسْطِ فَتَقْعُدَ مَلُومًا مَحْسُورًا ﴿٢٩﴾
٢٩ - اور اپنے ہاتھ کو نہ تو گردن سے بندھا ہوا (یعنی بہت تنگ) کرلو (کہ کسی کچھ دو ہی نہیں) اور نہ بالکل کھول ہی دو (کہ سبھی دے ڈالو اور انجام یہ ہو) کہ ملامت زدہ اور درماندہ ہو کر بیٹھ جاؤ .
[17:29] And do not make your hand [as] chained to your neck or extend it completely and [thereby] become blamed and insolvent.
[Transliteration] Wa laa taj'al yadaka maghloolatan il 'unuqika wa laa tabsut haa kullal basti fataq'uda maloomam mahsooraa
