135 verses, revealed in Mecca after Mary (Maryam) before The Inevitable (Al-Waaqe'ah)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
۞ TaHa. (1) We have not Sent down on thee the Qur'an that thou shouldst be distressed. (2) but only as a reminder to him who tears, (3) A revelation from Him Who created the earth and the high heavens, (4) The Most Merciful [who is] above the Throne established. (5) Unto Him belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth, and whatsoever is between them, and whatsoever is beneath the sod. (6) And if you (O Muhammad SAW) speak (the invocation) aloud, then verily, He knows the secret and that which is yet more hidden. (7) Allah! There is no Allah save Him. His are the most beautiful names. (8) And has the story of Moses reached you? - (9) When he saw a fire and said to his family, "Stay here; indeed, I have perceived a fire; perhaps I can bring you a torch or find at the fire some guidance." (10) But when he came close to it, a voice called out: "O Moses! (11) Lo! I, even I, am thy Lord, So take off thy shoes, for lo! thou art in the holy valley of Tuwa. (12) "I have chosen thee: listen, then, to the inspiration (sent to thee). (13) Verily I! I am Allah! no God there is but I; so worship Me, and establish prayer for My remembrance. (14) The Hour of Resurrection is coming. I have willed to keep the time of its coming hidden so that everyone may be recompensed in accordance with his effort. (15) "Therefore, let not the one who believes not therein (i.e. in the Day of Resurrection, Reckoning, Paradise and Hell, etc.), but follows his own lusts, divert you therefrom, lest you perish. (16) "And what is that in the right hand, O Moses?" (17) Moses answered: "This is my staff. I lean on it (when I walk), and with it I beat down leaves for my flock, and I have many other uses for it." (18) The Lord said, "Moses, throw it on the ground". (19) So he threw it down, and thereupon it was a snake, moving swiftly. (20) He said, “Pick it up and do not fear; We shall restore it to its former state.” (21) "Now - as another Sign - place your hand under your arm and it will come out sheer white without harm (or stain). (22) That We may go on showing you Our greater signs. (23) "Go to Fir'aun (Pharaoh)! Verily, he has transgressed (all bounds in disbelief and disobedience, and has behaved as an arrogant, and as a tyrant)." (24)
