017 - Soorah al-Israa. - (The Journey by Night) - [Makkee]
[017:105] And with truth We have sent it down (i.e. the Qur'ân), and with truth it has descended. And We have sent you (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) as nothing but a bearer of glad tidings (of Paradise, for those who follow your Message of Islâmic Monotheism), and a warner (of Hell-fire for those who refuse to follow your Message of Islâmic Monotheism).
[017:106] And (it is) a Qur'ân which We have divided (into parts), in order that you might recite it to men at intervals. And We have revealed it by stages (in 23 years).
[017:107] Say (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] to them): "Believe in it (the Qur'ân) or do not believe (in it). Verily, those who were given knowledge before it (the Jews and the Christians like 'Abdullâh bin Salâm and Salmân Al-Farisî), when it is recited to them, they fall down on their faces in humble prostration."
[017:108] And they say: "Glorified is our Lord! Truly, the Promise of our Lord must be fulfilled."
[017:109] And they fall down on their faces weeping and it increases their humility.
[017:110] Say (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "Invoke Allâh or invoke the Most Gracious (Allâh), by whatever name you invoke Him (it is the same), for to Him belong the Best Names. And offer your Salât (prayer) neither aloud nor in a low voice, but follow a way between.
[017:111] And say: "All praise and thanks are Allâh's, Who has not begotten a son (or offspring), and Who has no partner in (His) Dominion, nor is He low to have a Walî (helper, protector or supporter). And magnify Him with all magnificence [Allâhu-Akbar (Allâh is the Most Great)]."
