135 verses, revealed in Mecca after Mary (Maryam) before The Inevitable (Al-Waaqe'ah)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
۞ TaHa. (1) We have not sent down the Qur'an to thee to be (an occasion) for thy distress, (2) for those who have fear (of disobeying God), not to make you, (Muhammad), miserable. (3) It is a sending down from Him who has created the earth, and the high heavens, (4) (Allah) Most Gracious is firmly established on the throne (of authority). (5) To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is on the earth, and all that is between them, and all that is under the soil. (6) Be thou loud in thy speech, yet surely He knows the secret and that yet more hidden. (7) God, there is no deity but Him. His are the most excellent names. (8) Hast thou received the story of Moses? (9) When he saw the fire, he said to his family, "Wait here for I can see a fire. Perhaps I shall bring you a burning torch or find a way to some fire". (10) So when he came near the fire, it was announced, “O Moosa!” (11) Verily I am your Lord! Take off your shoes. You are in the sacred valley, Tuwa! (12) I Myself have chosen thee; therefore give thou ear to this revelation. (13) I am God, and there is no god but I, so serve Me, and observe acts of prayer to remember Me. (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 none bar thee from it, that believes not in it but follows after his own caprice, or thou wilt perish. (16) And what is in your right hand, O Moses?" (17) 'Why, it is my staff,' said Moses. 'I lean upon it, and with it I beat down leaves to feed my sheep; other uses also I find in it. (18) He said: Cast it down, O Moses! (19) So Moosa put it down thereupon it became a fast moving serpent. (20) Said He: "Take hold of it, and fear not: We shall restore it to its former state. (21) “And put your hand inside your armpit it will come out shining white, not due to any illness one more sign.” (22) But We shall show you some of Our greatest signs. (23) Go to Pharaoh. Indeed, he has transgressed." (24)
