Summary

Today’s selection concludes Surah 17, Al-Isrâ or the Night Journey, verses 94-111.

Moses, himself, was given nine signs but people didn’t believe him. Now, the Qur’an has been revealed in sections to suit each occasion. Lastly, we are counseled to offer Prayers in a moderate voice, neither too loud, nor too soft.
