۞ 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) Except as a reminder for one who fears. (3) A revelation from Him who created the earth and the high ascending skies, (4) The Most Merciful [who is] above the Throne established. (5) Unto Him belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth, and whatsoever is between them, and whatsoever is beneath the sod. (6) Whether you speak aloud [or in a low voice], He hears all, for He knows your secrets and what is even more hidden. (7) Allah-- there is no god but He; His are the very best 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) But when he came close to it, a voice called out: "O Moses! (11) Verily, I am thy Sustainer! Take off, then, thy sandals! Behold, thou art in the twice hallowed valley, (12) "And I have chosen you. So listen to that which is inspired to you. (13) I Am the only God. Worship Me and be steadfast in prayer to have My name always in your mind. (14) The Hour of Resurrection is coming. I have willed to keep the time of its coming hidden so that everyone may be recompensed in accordance with his effort. (15) So do not let one avert you from it who does not believe in it and follows his desire, for you [then] would perish. (16) “And what is this in your right hand, O Moosa?” (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) The Lord said, "Moses, throw it on the ground". (19) So he cast it down; and lo! it was a serpent running. (20) Allah said:"Grasp it, and fear not, We shall return it to its former state, (21) And press your hand to your side, it shall come out white without evil: another sign: (22) “In order that We may show you Our great signs.” (23) “Go to Firaun, he has rebelled.” (24)
