In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ 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 have not sent down the Koran to you for you to be tired, (2) Nay, it is a reminder to him who fears: (3) A revelation from He who created the earth and highest heavens, (4) The Most Beneficent (Allah) Istawa (rose over) the (Mighty) Throne (in a manner that suits His Majesty). (5) Whatever is in the heavens and the earth and in between them, belongs to Him, as whatever lies under the earth. (6) And if you speak aloud so He surely knows the secret and that which is more concealed. (7) God: There is no god but He. To Him belong the attributes most beautiful. (8) AND HAS the story of Moses ever come within thy ken? (9) When he saw fire, he said to his family: Stop, for surely I see a fire, haply I may bring to you therefrom a live coal or find a guidance at the fire. (10) When he came to it, a voice called out: "Moses! (11) I am your Lord. Take off your shoes, for you are in Towa, the sacred valley. (12) I have chosen you as My Messengers. Listen to the revelation. (13) Indeed, I am Allah. There is no god except Me. Worship Me, and establish the prayer of My remembrance. (14) “The Last Day will surely come it was close that I hide it from all in order that every soul may get the reward of its effort.” (He revealed it to His Prophets, so that people may fear and get ready. The exact time is not revealed to the people.) (15) Hence, let not anyone who does not believe in its coming and follows [but] his own desires divert thee from [belief in] it, lest thou perish! (16) "And what is that in your right hand, O Musa (Moses)?" (17) He said: This is my staff: I recline on it and I beat the leaves with it to make them fall upon my sheep, and I have other uses for it. (18) He said: Cast it down, O Moses! (19) So he threw it down, and thereupon it was a snake, moving swiftly. (20) God said, "Take hold of it, and have no fear: We shall return 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 go on showing you Our greater signs. (23) Go to Pharaoh; he has waxed insolent.' (24)
