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 [001 TO 035]

BANI ISRAIL [036 TO End]


وَمَنْ يَهْدِ اللَّهُ فَهُوَ الْمُهْتَدِ ۖ وَمَنْ يُضْلِلْ فَلَنْ تَجِدَ لَهُمْ أَوْلِيَاءَ مِنْ دُونِهِ ۖ وَنَحْشُرُهُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ عَلَىٰ وُجُوهِهِمْ عُمْيًا وَبُكْمًا وَصُمًّا ۖ مَأْوَاهُمْ جَهَنَّمُ ۖ كُلَّمَا خَبَتْ زِدْنَاهُمْ سَعِيرًا ﴿٩٧﴾
٩٧ - اور جس شخص کو خدا ہدایت دے وہی ہدایت یاب ہے۔ اور جن کو گمراہ کرے تو تم خدا کے سوا اُن کے رفیق نہیں پاؤ گے۔ اور ہم اُن کو قیامت کے دن اوندھے منہ اندھے گونگے اور بہرے (بنا کر) اٹھائیں گے۔ اور ان کا ٹھکانہ دوزخ ہے۔ جب (اس کی آگ) بجھنے کو ہوگی تو ہم ان کو (عذاب دینے کے لئے) اور بھڑکا دیں گے .
[17:97] And whoever Allah guides - he is the [rightly] guided; and whoever He sends astray - you will never find for them protectors besides Him, and We will gather them on the Day of Resurrection [fallen] on their faces - blind, dumb and deaf. Their refuge is Hell; every time it subsides We increase them in blazing fire.
[Transliteration] Wa mai yahdil laahu fahuwal muhtad, wa mai yudlil falan tajida lahum awliyaaa'a min doonih, wa nahshuruhum Yawmal Qiyaamati 'alaa wujoohihim umyanw wa bukmanw wa summaa, maa waahum Jahannamu kullamaa khabat zidnaahum sa'eeraa
