سورة الإسراء

17. Al-Isra

The night journey

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

- 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

ذَٰلِكَ جَزَاؤُهُمْ بِأَنَّهُمْ كَفَرُوا بِآيَاتِنَا وَقَالُوا أَإِذَا كُنَّا عِظَامًا وَرُفَاتًا أَإِنَّا لَمَبْعُوثُونَ خَلْقًا جَدِيدًا ﴿٩٨﴾
٩٨ - یہ ان کی سزا ہے اس لئے کہ وہ ہماری آیتوں سے کفر کرتے تھے اور کہتے تھے کہ جب ہم (مر کر بوسیدہ) ہڈیاں اور ریزہ ریزہ ہوجائیں گے تو کیا ازسرنو پیدا کئے جائیں گے .
[17:98] That is their recompense because they disbelieved in Our verses and said, "When we are bones and crumbled particles, will we [truly] be resurrected [in] a new creation?"

أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا أَنَّ اللَّهَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ قَادِرٌ عَلَىٰ أَنْ يَخْلُقَ مِثْلَهُمْ وَجَعَلَ لَهُمْ أَجَلًا لَا رَيْبَ فِيهِ فَأَبَى الظَّالِمُونَ إِلَّا كُفُورًا ﴿٩٩﴾
٩٩ - کیا انہوں نے نہیں دیکھا کہ خدا جس نے آسمانوں اور زمین کو پیدا کیا ہے اس بات پر قادر ہے کہ ان جیسے (لوگ) پیدا کردے۔ اور اس نے ان کے لئے ایک وقت مقرر کر دیا ہے جس میں کچھ بھی شک نہیں۔ تو ظالموں نے انکار کرنے کے سوا (اسے) قبول نہ کیا .
[17:99] Do they not see that Allah, who created the heavens and earth, is [the one] Able to create the likes of them? And He has appointed for them a term, about which there is no doubt. But the wrongdoers refuse [anything] except disbelief.
