135 verses, revealed in Mecca after Mary (Maryam) before The Inevitable (Al-Waaqe'ah)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ TA HA. (1) We have not Sent down on thee the Qur'an that thou shouldst be distressed. (2) But only as a Reminder to those who fear (Allah). (3) A revelation from Him Who created the earth and the high heavens. (4) The Most Merciful [who is] above the Throne established. (5) Whatever is in the heavens and the earth and in between them, belongs to Him, as whatever lies under the earth. (6) Whether you speak out aloud (or in a low voice), He knows what is said secretly, and even that which is most hidden. (7) Allah - there is no god but He. His are the most excellent names. (8) (Muhammad), have you heard the story of Moses? (9) When he saw a fire, he said to his family: 'Stay here, for I can see a fire. Perhaps I can bring you a lighted torch or find at the fire guidance' (10) And when he reached it, he was called by name: O Moses! (11) I am thy Lord; put off thy shoes; thou art in the holy valley, Towa. (12) And I have chosen thee, so hearken unto that which is inspired. (13) Verily I! I am Allah! no God there is but I; so worship Me, and establish prayer for My remembrance. (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) Let not the unbelievers who follow their vain desires make you forget the Day of Judgment, lest you will perish." (16) "Now, what is this in thy right hand, O Moses?" (17) He replied, "It is my staff. I lean on it, bring down leaves for my sheep with it and I need it for other reasons. (18) "Throw it down, O Moses," said (the Voice). (19) So he cast it down, and lo! it was a serpent running along. (20) He said, “Pick it up and do not fear; We shall 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) That We may show you of Our greater signs: (23) Go to the Pharaoh as he has become exceedingly rebellious." (24)
