88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Ant (Al-Naml) before The Night Journey (Al-Isra)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
TA SIN MIM. (1) These are the verses of the Clear Book. (2) We shall narrate to you the true tidings of Moosa and Firaun, for the people who have faith. (3) Now Pharaoh had exalted himself in the land and had divided its inhabitants into sects, abasing one party of them, slaughtering their sons, and sparing their women; for he was of the workers of corruption. (4) And We wanted to confer favor upon those who were oppressed in the land and make them leaders and make them inheritors (5) and to give them power in the land; and to show Pharaoh and Haman and their hosts that very thing which they feared. (6) So We revealed to Moses' mother, 'Suckle him, then, when thou fearest for him, cast him into the sea, and do not fear, neither sorrow, for We shall return him to thee, and shall appoint him one of the Envoys.' (7) And the family of Pharaoh picked him up [out of the river] so that he would become to them an enemy and a [cause of] grief. Indeed, Pharaoh and Haman and their soldiers were deliberate sinners. (8) And the wife of Pharaoh said, "[He will be] a comfort of the eye for me and for you. Do not kill him; perhaps he may benefit us, or we may adopt him as a son." And they perceived not. (9) The mother of Moses was perturbed in the morning. Had We not strengthened her heart to remain a believer she had almost given him away. (10) And she said unto his sister: follow him. So she watched him from afar; and they perceived not. (11) ۞ And We had already forbidden the breasts of the nurses for the child. (So seeing the girl) said: "Shall I direct you to the people of a household that will rear him with utter sincerity?" (12) So We returned him to his mother, that she might be comforted and not sorrow, and that she might know that the promise of God is true; but most of them do not know. (13)
