The Ant (Al-Naml)
93 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Poets (Alshu'araa') before Stories (Al-Qasas)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
۞ Ta'. Sin. These are the verses of the Qur'an and a Clear Book; (1) a guidance and good tidings for the believers (2) who are steadfast in prayer, who pay the religious tax, and who have strong faith in the life hereafter. (3) As to those who do not believe in the hereafter, We have surely made their deeds fair-seeming to them, but they blindly wander on. (4) those are they whom an evil chastisement awaits, and they will be the greatest losers in the Hereafter. (5) But [as for thee, O believer,] verily, thou hast received this Qur'an out of the grace of One who is wise, all-knowing. (6) Moses said to his family, "I have seen some fire. I shall bring you some news about it or some fire so that you can warmyourselves". (7) So when he came to it a voice was uttered saying: Blessed is Whoever is in the fire and whatever is about it; and glory be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds; (8) Moses, I am God, the Majestic and All-wise. (9) Throw down your staff." When he saw it wriggling like a serpent he turned his back and fled without turning (to look). "O Moses," (said the voice), "be not fearful. Surely those sent as messengers do not fear in My presence, (10) as for those who do wrong and then do good after evil, I am most forgiving, most merciful. (11) And put thy hand into thy bosom, it shall come forth white, without hurt: amongst nine signs unto Fir'awn and his people. Verily they have been a people transgressing. (12) And when Our signs came as distinct proofs, they said: "This is only magic." (13) And they belied them (those Ayat) wrongfully and arrogantly, though their ownselves were convinced thereof [i.e. those (Ayat) are from Allah, and Musa (Moses) is the Messenger of Allah in truth, but they disliked to obey Musa (Moses), and hated to believe in his Message of Monotheism]. So see what was the end of the Mufsidun (disbelievers, disobedient to Allah, evil-doers, liars.). (14)
