135 verses, revealed in Mecca after Mary (Maryam) before The Inevitable (Al-Waaqe'ah)
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ Ta-Ha. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Quran, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings.] (1) We have not sent down the Koran upon thee for thee to be unprosperous, (2) but as a reminder to he who fears. (3) Sent down by One Who created the earth and the lofty heavens. (4) The Beneficent God is dominant over the Throne (of the realm). (5) His is what is in the heavens and what is in the earth and what is between them two and what is beneath 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! no God there is but he! His are the names excellent. (8) Has the story of Moses reached you? (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) When he came near the fire he was called, "Moses, (11) “Indeed I am your Lord, therefore take off your shoes; indeed you are in the holy valley of Tuwa!” (12) And I have chosen thee, so hearken unto that which is inspired. (13) Indeed, I am Allah. There is no god except Me. Worship Me, and establish the prayer of My remembrance. (14) The Hour is coming. But I choose to keep it hidden, so that every human being may be recompensed in accordance with his labours. (15) Hence, let not anyone who does not believe in its coming and follows [but] his own desires divert thee from [belief in] it, lest thou perish! (16) "Now, what is this in thy right hand, O Moses?" (17) "It's my staff," he answered; "I lean on it, and fell leaves for my goats with it, and I have other uses for it." (18) (Allah) said: "Cast it down, O Musa (Moses)!" (19) So he threw it down, and all of a sudden, it turned into a fast-moving serpent. (20) Then He said: "Seize it and have no fear. We shall restore it to its former state. (21) And face what is to come with patience, your hand will not be tarnished with blame: Another sign (22) so that We might make thee aware of some of Our greatest wonders. (23) Go to the Pharaoh; he has become a rebel." (24)
