Chapter 17 - Sourat Alisra "Alisra"
The Children of Israel
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
[17.1] Glory be to Him Who made His servant to go on a night from the Sacred Mosque to the remote mosque of which We have blessed the precincts, so that We may show to him some of Our signs; surely He is the Hearing, the Seeing.
[17.2] And We gave Musa = (Moses) the Book and made it a guidance to the children of Israel, saying: Do not take a protector besides Me;
[17.3] The offspring of those whom We bore with Nuh; surely he was a grateful servant.
[17.4] And We had made known to the children of Israel in the Book: Most certainly you will make mischief in the land twice, and most certainly you will behave insolently with great insolence.
[17.5] So when the promise for the first of the two came, We sent over you Our servants, of mighty prowess, so they went to and fro among the houses, and it was a promise to be accomplished.
[17.6] Then We gave you back the turn to prevail against them, and aided you with wealth and children and made you a numerous band.
[17.7] If you do good, you will do good for your own souls, and if you do evil, it shall be for them. So when the second promise came (We raised another people) that they may bring you to grief and that they may enter the mosque as they entered it the first time, and that they might destroy whatever they gained ascendancy over with utter destruction.
[17.8] It may be that your Lord will have mercy on you, and if you again return (to disobedience) We too will return (to punishment), and We have made hell a prison for the unbelievers.
[17.9] Surely this Quran guides to that which is most upright and gives good news to the believers who do good that they shall have a great reward.
[17.10] And that (as for) those who do not believe in the hereafter, We have prepared for them a painful chastisement.
[17.11] And man prays for evil as he ought to pray for good, and man is ever hasty.
[17.12] And We have made the night and the day two signs, then We have made the sign of the night to pass away and We have made the sign of the day manifest, so that you may seek grace from your Lord, and that you might know the numbering of years and the reckoning; and We have explained everything with distinctness.
[17.13] And We have made every man's actions to cling to his neck, and We will bring forth to him on the resurrection day a book which he will find wide open:
[17.14] Read your book; your own self is sufficient as a reckoner against you this day.
[17.15] Whoever goes aright, for his own soul does he go aright; and whoever goes astray, to its detriment only does he go astray: nor can the bearer of a burden bear the burden of another, nor do We chastise until We raise an apostle.
[17.16] And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who lead easy lives, but they transgress therein; thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction.
[17.17] And how many of the generations did We destroy after Nuh! and your Lord is sufficient as Knowing and Seeing with regard to His servants' faults.
[17.18] Whoever desires this present life, We hasten to him therein what We please for whomsoever We desire, then We assign to him the hell; he shall enter it despised, driven away.
[17.19] And whoever desires the hereafter and strives for it as he ought to strive and he is a believer; (as for) these, their striving shall surely be accepted.
[17.20] All do We aid-- these as well as those-- out of the bounty of your Lord, and the bounty of your Lord is not confined.
[17.21] See how We have made some of them to excel others, and certainly the hereafter is much superior in respect of excellence.
[17.22] Do not associate with Allah any other god, lest you sit down despised, neglected.
[17.23] And your Lord has commanded that you shall not serve (any) but Him, and goodness to your parents. If either or both of them reach old age with you, say not to them (so much as) "Ugh" nor chide them, and speak to them a generous word.
[17.24] And make yourself submissively gentle to them with compassion, and say: O my Lord! have compassion on them, as they brought me up (when I was) little.
[17.25] Your Lord knows best what is in your minds; if you are good, then He is surely Forgiving to those who turn (to Him) frequently.
[17.26] And give to the near of kin his due and (to) the needy and the wayfarer, and do not squander wastefully.
[17.27] Surely the squanderers are the fellows of the Shaitans and the Shaitan is ever ungrateful to his Lord.
[17.28] And if you turn away from them to seek mercy from your Lord, which you hope for, speak to them a gentle word.
[17.29] And do not make your hand to be shackled to your neck nor stretch it forth to the utmost (limit) of its stretching forth, lest you should (afterwards) sit down blamed, stripped off.
[17.30] Surely your Lord makes plentiful the means of subsistence for whom He pleases and He straitens (them); surely He is ever Aware of, Seeing, His servants.
[17.31] And do not kill your children for fear of poverty; We give them sustenance and yourselves (too); surely to kill them is a great wrong.
[17.32] And go not nigh to fornication; surely it is an indecency and an evil way.
[17.33] And do not kill any one whom allah has forbidden, except for a just cause, and whoever
kill an innocent, We have indeed given to his heir authority, so let him not exceed the just limits in slaying; surely he is aided.
[17.34] And draw not near to the property of the orphan except in a
goodly way till he attains his maturity and fulfill the promise; surely (every)
promise shall be questioned about.
[17.71] (Remember) the day when
We will call every people with their Imam; then whoever is given
his book in his right hand, these shall read their book; and they shall not be dealt with a whit unjustly.
[17.72] And whoever is blind in this, he shall (also) be blind in the hereafter; and more erring from the way.
[17.73] And surely they had purposed to turn you away from that which We have revealed to you, that you should forge against Us other than that, and then they
