The Ant (Al-Naml)
93 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Poets (Alshu'araa') before Stories (Al-Qasas)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
۞ Ta, Seen. These are the verses of the Qur'an and a clear Book (1) A guide: and glad tidings for the believers,- (2) Who fulfil their devotional obligations, pay the zakat, and believe with certainty in the life to come. (3) We make their deeds attractive to those who do not believe in the Hereafter, so that they may wander in perplexity. (4) These are they who shall have an evil punishment, and in the hereafter they shall be the greatest losers. (5) (Muhammad), you have certainly received the Quran from the All-wise and All-knowing One. (6) Lo! [While lost in the desert,] Moses said to his family: "Behold, I perceive a fire [far away]; I may bring you from there some tiding [as to which way we are to pursue,] or bring you [at least] a burning brand so that you might warm yourselves." (7) But when he came to it, he was called: "Blessed is whosoever is in the fire, and whosoever is round about it! And glorified be Allah, the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (8) Moses, behold, it is I, God, the All-mighty, the All-wise. (9) Cast down your staff' And when he saw it writhing like a serpent, he turned about retreating, and did not turn back. 'Moses, do not fear, indeed the Messengers do not fear (when they are) with Me, (10) save him who has done evil, then; after evil, has changed into good; All-forgiving am I, All-compassionate. (11) Now put your hand inside your cloak next to your bosom and it will come out [shining] white, without any blemish. This will be one of the nine signs for Pharaoh and his people: for truly they are a rebellious people." (12) But when Our light-giving messages came unto them, they said, "This is clearly [but] spellbinding deception!" (13) They denied them unjustly out of pride, though their souls acknowledged them. See, how was the end of the corrupt workers! (14)
