۞ TA HA. (1) We have not Sent down on thee the Qur'an that thou shouldst be distressed. (2) Nay, it is a reminder to him who fears: (3) It is a revelation from the Creator of the earth and the high heavens. (4) the All-compassionate sat Himself upon the Throne; to Him belongs (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 you (O Muhammad SAW) speak (the invocation) aloud, then verily, He knows the secret and that which is yet more hidden. (7) Allah! There is no Allah save Him. His are the most beautiful names. (8) And did the news of Moosa reach you? (9) When he saw a fire and said unto his folk: Lo! Wait! I see a fire afar off. Peradventure I may bring you a brand therefrom or may find guidance at the fire. (10) When he came to it, a voice called out: "Moses! (11) "Verily! I am your Lord! So take off your shoes, you are in the sacred valley, Tuwa. (12) And I! I have chosen thee, hearken thou then to that which shall be revealed. (13) Indeed, I am Allah. There is no deity except Me, so worship Me and establish prayer for My remembrance. (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) Let him who does not believe in it and follows his lust not turn your thought away from it, lest you are ruined. (16) “And what is this in your right hand, O Moosa?” (17) He said, “This is my staff; I support myself on it, and I knock down leaves for my sheep with it, and there are other uses for me in it.” (18) The Lord said, "Moses, throw it on the ground". (19) So he threw it down, and all of a sudden, it turned into a fast-moving serpent. (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) for We shall show you some of Our greatest Signs. (23) Go to the Pharaoh as he has become exceedingly rebellious." (24)
