In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Ta, Seen, Meem. (1) These are messages of a divine writ clear in itself and clearly showing the truth. (2) We recite unto thee of the story of Musa and Fir'awn with truth for a people who believe. (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 desired that We should be gracious unto those who were weakened in the land, and We should make them leaders and We should make them the 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.

(12) Thus did We return Moses to his mother that We would delight her eyes, relieve her sorrows, and let her know that the promise of God was true, but many people do not know. (13)
