135 verses, revealed in Mecca after Mary (Maryam) before The Inevitable (Al-Waaqe'ah)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ Ta Ha (1) We have sent the Quran only as reminder (2) but as a reminder to he who fears. (3) A revelation from Him who created the earth and the high ascending skies, (4) (Allah) Most Gracious is firmly established on the throne (of authority). (5) To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, and whatever lies in between them, and all that lies under the ground. (6) Be thou loud in thy speech, yet surely He knows the secret and that yet more hidden. (7) Allah! There is no Allah save Him. His are the most beautiful names. (8) Has the story of Moses reached thee? (9) When he saw a fire, he said to his family, "Wait here. I can see a fire. Perhaps I can bring you a brand from it, or find some guidance at the fire." (10) And when he came to it, he was called, "O Moses, (11) Verily, I am thy Sustainer! Take off, then, thy sandals! Behold, thou art in the twice hallowed valley, (12) And I! I have chosen thee, hearken thou then to that which shall be revealed. (13) Verily I am Allah. There is no god beside Me. So serve Me and establish Prayers to remember Me. (14) Surely the hour is coming-- I am about to make it manifest-- so that every soul may be rewarded as it strives: (15) So do not let those who do not believe in it and follow their vain desires, turn you away from it. (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) "Throw it down, O Moses," said (the Voice). (19) So Moosa put it down thereupon it became a fast moving serpent. (20) Allah said:"Grasp it, and fear not, We shall return it to its former state, (21) Now clasp thy hand to thy arm-pit; it shall come forth white, without evil. That is a second sign. (22) "That We may show you (some) of Our Greater Signs. (23) And go to Pharaoh now for he has transgressed all bounds." (24)
