The Ant (Al-Naml)
93 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Poets (Alshu'araa') before Stories (Al-Qasas)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, 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 constant in prayer and spend in charity: for it is they, they who in their innermost are certain of the life to come! (3) Those who do not believe in the Hereafter We have made their deeds seem good to them, so they are astray. (4) Such are those for whom there is an evil punishment, and in the Everlasting Life are the greatest losers. (5) And verily thou art receiving the Qur'an from before the Wise, the Knowing. (6) (Remember) when Moses said unto his household: Lo! I spy afar off a fire; I will bring you tidings thence, or bring to you a borrowed flame that ye may 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, verily this is Me, Allah, 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 hath done wrong and afterward hath changed evil for good. And lo! I am Forgiving, 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) And when Our signs came as distinct proofs, they said: "This is only magic." (13) And they rejected those Signs in iniquity and arrogance, though their souls were convinced thereof: so see what was the end of those who acted corruptly! (14)
