۞ Ta-Ha. (1) We have not sent down the Qur'an to you that you should be burdened, (2) but only as a reminder to him who tears, (3) A revelation from Him who created the earth and the high ascending skies, (4) The ever-merciful, 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) And if thou say anything aloud, [He hears it] since, behold, He knows [even] the secret [thoughts of man] as well as all that is yet more hidden [within him]. (7) God, there is no deity but Him. His are the most excellent names. (8) And did the news of Moosa reach you? (9) When he saw a fire and said to his wife, “Wait I have seen a fire perhaps I may bring you an ember from it or find a way upon the fire.” (10) And when he came to it, he was called, "O Moses, (11) Verily I am your Lord! Take off your shoes. You are in the sacred valley, Tuwa! (12) “And I have chosen you, therefore listen carefully to what is divinely revealed to you.” (13) "Verily, I - I alone - am God; there is no deity save Me. Hence, worship Me alone, and be constant in prayer, so as to remember Me! (14) Indeed, the Hour is coming - I almost conceal it - so that every soul may be recompensed according to that for which it strives. (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 that in thy right hand, O Moses? (17) He said: This is my staff whereon I lean, and wherewith I bear down branches for my sheep, and wherein I find other uses. (18) He said: Cast it down, O Moses! (19) Moses threw it on the ground and suddenly he saw that it was a moving serpent. (20) Allah said: take hold of it, and fear not; We shall restore 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) "In order that We may show thee (two) of our Greater Signs. (23) “Go to Firaun, he has rebelled.” (24)
