In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ Ta-Ha.* (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him) (Alphabets of the Arabic language Allah and to whomever He reveals know their precise meanings.) (1) We have not sent down the Koran to you for you to be tired, (2) But only as an admonition to those who fear (Allah),- (3) A revelation from He who created the earth and highest heavens, (4) the All-compassionate sat Himself upon the Throne; to Him belongs (5) His is whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever on the earth and whatsoever is in between and whatsoever is underneath the earth. (6) And if thou speakest aloud, then lo! He knoweth the secret (thought) and (that which is yet) more hidden. (7) Allah - there is no god but He. His are the most excellent names. (8) And has there come to you the story of Musa (Moses)? (9) When he saw a fire he said to his family: "You wait here. I have seen a fire. I may haply be able to bring an ember from it, or find direction by the fire." (10) Then when he was come thereto, he was cried unto. O Musa! (11) Surely I am your Lord, therefore put off your shoes; surely you are in the sacred valley, Tuwa, (12) "I have chosen thee: listen, then, to the inspiration (sent to thee). (13) Verily I! I am Allah! no God there is but I; so worship Me, and establish prayer for My remembrance. (14) "Behold, [although] I have willed to keep it hidden, the Last Hour is bound to come, so that every human being may be recompensed in accordance with what he strove for [in life]. (15) “Therefore never let one, who does not accept faith in it and follows his own desires, prevent you from accepting this, so then you become ruined.” (16) And what is that in thy right hand, O Moses? (17) He replied, "It is my staff. I lean on it, and with it, I beat down the leaves for my flock; I also have other uses for it." (18) God said, "Moses, cast it down." (19) So he cast it down, and thereupon it turned into a sliding serpent. (20) He said: Take hold of it and fear not; We will restore it to its former state: (21) "And press your (right) hand to your (left) side, it will come forth white (and shining), without any disease as another sign, (22) "That We may show you (some) of Our Greater Signs. (23) Go thou unto Pharaoh! Lo! he hath transgressed (the bounds). (24)
