Surah Al Isra Summary From Aya 101 to 111 / Currently in progress
To read from the beginning visit Summary Page
  • Allah SWT gave Moses AS Nine miracles: Hand turning brilliantly white, the staff changing into a serpent, famine, lack of fruits, the flood, locusts, lice, frogs, and blood. These were the miracles which Fir’awn and his people saw. Moses were given other miracles also like twelve springs of water gushing forth from a rock as he struck it with his staff, the clouds shading his people from the sun, also manna and Salwa. But Pharaoh said to him that you are affected by magic. (101)
  • Moses AS argued with Pharaoh that “You know that these signs have been sent down none but by the Lord of the heavens and the earth as evidence, and indeed I think, O Pharaoh, that you are destroyed. (102)
  • Pharaoh intended to drive Moses and his people from the land, but Allah SWT drowned Fir’awn and those with him all together. (103)
  • And Allah SWT said after Pharaoh to the Children of Israel, "Dwell in the land (Wandered in Syria and Egypt for Forty years before they entered in Palestine), and when there comes the promise of the Hereafter (near the Day of Resurrection or the descent of Isa AS) that Allah will gather all of you out of various nations." (104)
  • Quran is truth from Allah SWT and has reached to us intact without any alteration. Prophet Muhammed SAW is bringer of good tiding and a warner. (105)
  • Quran has come in stages (We have made it depart from Al-Lawh Al-Mahfuz to Bayt Al-`Izzah in the lowest heaven, then it was revealed in stages to the Messenger of Allah, according to events, over a period of twenty-three years. (106)
  • - Urdu Tafseer - 101 to 106
  • Do not worry about the pagans whether they believe or not but scholars who have already read the books revealed before the Quran and know the nature of revelation and the distinguishing marks of a Messenger of Allah; They fall prostrate as they hear the Quran being recited, thanking their Lord for helping them to recognize the last Messenger of Allah and believing in him as such. (107)
  • They glorify Allah SWT and Quran increases them in their humbleness and fall upon their faces weeping. First prostration was of thanksgiving and second one that of submissiveness and joy. (108, 109) [Sajda/Prostration]
  • Say, "Call upon Allah or call upon the Most Merciful. Whichever [name] you call - to Him belong the best names." And do not recite [too] loudly in your prayer or [too] quietly but seek between that an [intermediate] way. (110)
  • And say, "Praise to Allah, who has not taken a son and has had no partner in [His] dominion and has no [need of a] protector out of weakness; and glorify Him with [great] glorification." (111)
