۞ Ta Ha (1) We have not sent down the Qur'an to you that you should be burdened, (2) Except as a reminder for one who fears. (3) A down-sent from Him who Created the earth and the heavens high. (4) The Most Merciful [who is] above the Throne established. (5) To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, and all that is in between, and all that is beneath the soil. (6) Whether or not you express (your thoughts) in words, God certainly knows all unspoken thoughts and all that is even more difficult to find. (7) Allah - there is no deity except Him.

Take off your shoes. You are in the sacred valley, Tuwa! (12) and I have chosen thee [to be My apostle]: listen, then, to what is being revealed [unto thee]. (13) “Indeed it is Me, Allah there is no God except I therefore worship Me and keep the prayer established for My remembrance.” (14) The Hour is coming.

(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) The Lord asked, "Moses, what is in your right hand?" (17) He said, "It is my rod: on it I lean; with it I beat down fodder for my flocks; and in it I find other uses." (18) The Lord said, "Moses, throw it on the ground". (19) and he cast it down, and behold it was a serpent sliding. (20) He said, “Pick it up and do not fear; We shall restore it to its former state.” (21) "Now - as another Sign - place your hand under your arm and it will come out sheer white without harm (or stain). (22) But We shall show you some of Our greatest signs. (23) "[And now] go thou unto Pharaoh: for, verily, he has transgressed all bounds of equity. (24)
