The Ant (Al-Naml)
93 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Poets (Alshu'araa') before Stories (Al-Qasas)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ Ta'. Sin. These are the verses of the Qur'an and a Clear Book; (1) As guidance and good tidings for the believers (2) Those who establish regular prayers and give in regular charity, and also have (full) assurance of the hereafter. (3) As for those who do not believe in the Everlasting Life, We have decorated for them their works, and they wander blindly. (4) These are they who shall have an evil punishment, and in the hereafter they shall be the greatest losers. (5) And verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) are receiving the Quran from the One, All-Wise, All-Knowing. (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 reached it, a voice called out: "Blessed is He who is in the fire and all around it. Praised be God, the Lord of all the worlds. (8) O Moses! Lo! it is I, Allah, the Mighty, the Wise. (9) Cast down thy staff.' And when he saw it quivering like a serpent he turned about, retreating, and turned not back. 'Moses, fear not; surely the Envoys do not fear in My presence, (10) "Except him who has done wrong and afterwards has changed evil for good, then surely, I am Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (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 Signs came to them, that should have opened their eyes, they said: "This is sorcery manifest!" (13) And they denied them unjustly and proudly while their soul had been convinced of them; consider, then how was the end of the mischief-makers. (14)
