[b/Israel 17:76] And indeed it was close that they frighten you in the land for them to oust you from it - and if it were, they would not have stayed after you, but a little.

[b/Israel 17:77] The tradition of the Noble Messengers We sent before you - and you will not find Our rules changing.

Section 9

[b/Israel 17:78] Keep the prayer established, from the declining of the sun until darkness of the night, and the Qur’an at dawn; indeed the angels witness the reading of the Qur’an at dawn.

[b/Israel 17:79] And forego sleep * in some part of the night - an increase for you **; it is likely your Lord will set you on a place where everyone will praise you ***. (* For worship. ** Obligatory only upon the Holy Prophet. *** On the Day of Resurrection.)

[b/Israel 17:80] And pray, "My Lord! Admit me with the truth and take me out with the truth *, and give me from Yourself a helpful dominance **." (* Wherever I come or go  ** Through spread of Islam.)

[b/Israel 17:81] And proclaim, "The Truth has arrived and falsehood has vanished; indeed falsehood had to vanish." (* With the arrival of the Last Prophet - Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him)

[b/Israel 17:82] And We send down in the Qur’an that which is a cure for the Muslims, and a mercy - and it increases only ruin for the unjust.

[b/Israel 17:83] And when We bestow favours upon man, he turns away and goes far away towards himself; and when evil touches him he despairs.

[b/Israel 17:84] Proclaim, "Each one works according to his own pattern; and your Lord well knows him who is more upon guidance."

Section 10

[b/Israel 17:85] They ask you concerning the soul; proclaim "The soul is an entity by the command of my Lord, and you have not received knowledge except a little."

[b/Israel 17:86] And if We willed We could have taken away the revelations which We have sent to you - you would then not find anyone who could advocate for you before Us for this.
