In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
۞ Ta-Ha.* (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him) (Alphabets of the Arabic language Allah and to whomever He reveals know their precise meanings.) (1) We did not reveal the Qur'an to you to cause you distress; (2) but only as an exhortation to all who stand in awe [of God]: (3) It is a sending down from Him who has created the earth, and the high heavens, (4) The Beneficent One, Who is established on the Throne. (5) To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth, all that lies between them, and lies below the earth. (6) And if you speak aloud - then indeed, He knows the secret and what is [even] more hidden. (7) Allah - there is no god but He. His are the most excellent names. (8) Has the story of Moses reached you? (9) When he saw a fire and said to his family: "Hold on! I have just perceived a fire; perhaps I will bring a brand from it for you, or I will find some guidance at the fire about the way to follow." (10) And when he reached it, he was called by name: O Moses! (11) Verily I! I am thy Lord: so take off thy shoes; verily thou art into the holy valley, Tuwa. (12) “And I have chosen you, therefore listen carefully to what is divinely revealed to you.” (13) Verily I am Allah. There is no god beside Me. So serve Me and establish Prayers to remember Me. (14) The Hour is coming; I would conceal it that every soul may be recompensed for its labours. (15) Do not let anyone who does not believe in it and follows his own desires turn you away from it and so bring you to ruin." (16) “And what is this in your right hand, O Moosa?” (17) He replied, "It is my staff. I lean on it, and with it, I beat down the leaves for my flock; I also have other uses for it." (18) The Lord said, "Moses, throw it on the ground". (19) So he threw it down, and lo, it became a running serpent. (20) Then He said: "Seize it and have no fear. We shall restore it to its former state. (21) And press your hand to your side, it shall come out white without evil: another sign: (22) "That We may show you (some) of Our Greater Signs. (23) Go to Pharaoh, he has become insolent' (24)
