۞ Ta Ha. (1) We have not sent down this Qur’an upon you (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him) for you to fall into hardship! (Either because he used to pray at length during the night or because he was distressed due to the disbelievers not accepting faith.) (2) But as admonition for him who fears -- (3) Sent down by One Who created the earth and the lofty heavens. (4) the Most Gracious, established on the throne of His almightiness? (5) His is what is in the heavens and what is in the earth and what is between them two and what is beneath the ground. (6) Whether or not you express (your thoughts) in words, God certainly knows all unspoken thoughts and all that is even more difficult to find. (7) Allah - there is no deity except Him. To Him belong the best names. (8) Has the story of Moses reached you? (9) When he saw a fire and said unto his folk: Lo! Wait! I see a fire afar off. Peradventure I may bring you a brand therefrom or may find guidance at the fire. (10) When he came to it, a voice called out: "Moses! (11) Verily, I am thy Sustainer! Take off, then, thy sandals! Behold, thou art in the twice hallowed valley, (12) And I have chosen you, so listen to what is revealed: (13) I am God, and there is no god but I, so serve Me, and observe acts of prayer to remember Me. (14) Lo! the Hour is surely coming. But I will to keep it hidden, that every soul may be rewarded for that which it striveth (to achieve). (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 said, "It is my staff; I lean upon it, and I bring down leaves for my sheep and I have therein other uses." (18) He said: "Moses, throw it down." (19) So he cast it down, and lo! it was a serpent running along. (20) (Allah) said, "Seize it, and fear not: We shall return it at once to its former condition".. (21) And thrust thy hand within thine armpit, it will come forth white without hurt. (That will be) another token. (22) This We have done to show you some of Our greater miracles. (23) "Go thou to Pharaoh, for he has indeed transgressed all bounds." (24)
