۞ TA SIN. THESE are the verses of the Qur'an, and collection of explicit laws, (1) A guide: and glad tidings for the believers,- (2) who establish Prayer and give Zakah, and have firm faith in the Hereafter. (3) As for those who do not believe in the Hereafter, We have made their deeds seem attractive to them so they stumble around in perplexity. (4) Those are the ones for whom there will be the worst of punishment, and in the Hereafter they are the greatest losers. (5) And indeed you (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him), are taught the Qur’an from the Wise, the All Knowing. (6) Behold! Moses said to his family: "I perceive a fire; soon will I bring you from there some information, or I will bring you a burning brand to light our fuel, that ye may warm yourselves. (7) So, when he came to it, he was called: 'Blessed is he who is in the fire, and he who is about it. Glory be to God, the Lord of all Being! (8) O Musa! surely I am Allah, the Mighty, the Wise; (9) And throw down thy staff! But when he saw it writhing as it were a demon, he turned to flee headlong; (but it was said unto him): O Moses! Fear not! the emissaries fear not in My presence, (10) Excepting any who may have done wrong and thereafter changeth evil for good then verily I am Forgiving, Merciful. (11) “And put your hand inside your armpit it will come out shining white, not due to any illness; a sign among the nine signs towards Firaun and his people; they are indeed a lawless nation.” (12) But when Our signs came to them visibly, they said: 'This is plain sorcery.' (13) and in their wickedness and self-exaltation they rejected them, although their minds were convinced of their truth: and behold what happened in the end to those spreaders of corruption! (14)
