In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
۞ 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 a reminder to he who fears. (3) A revelation from Him Who created the earth and the heavens on high. (4) The Beneficent God is dominant over the Throne (of the realm). (5) To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, and all that is in between, and all that is beneath the soil. (6) If you speak loudly; He has indeed knowledge of the secret and the hidden. (7) Allah there is no worship except for Him; His only are the best names. (8) And has there come to you the story of Musa (Moses)? (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 approached it, a voice called out: (11) Surely I am your Lord, therefore put off your shoes; surely you are in the sacred valley, Tuwa, (12) I have chosen you. So listen to what is being revealed. (13) “Indeed it is Me, Allah there is no God except I therefore worship Me and keep the prayer established for My remembrance.” (14) "Verily the Hour is coming - My design is to keep it hidden - for every soul to receive its reward by the measure of its Endeavour. (15) Let him who does not believe in it and follows his lust not turn your thought away from it, lest you are ruined. (16) The Lord asked, "Moses, what is in your right hand?" (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) God said, "Moses, cast it down." (19) So he cast it down, and thereupon it turned into a sliding serpent. (20) He said: Take hold of it and fear not; We will restore it to its former state: (21) And thrust thy hand within thine armpit, it will come forth white without hurt. (That will be) another token. (22) So We would show thee some of Our greatest signs. (23) "[And now] go thou unto Pharaoh: for, verily, he has transgressed all bounds of equity. (24)
