3/4 Hizb 39
Juz 20
۞ When Moses completed the term and set out with his family, he noticed a fire in the direction of Mount Tur. He said to his family: "Stay here, I can see a fire. Perhaps I can bring you news, or a burning brand from the fire with which you may warm yourself." (29) But when he came to the fire, a cry was heard from the right bank of the valley, from a tree in the hallowed ground: "O Moses, verily I am Allah, the Lord of all creatures of the Universe." (30) And cast thou down thy staff. And when he saw it stirring, as though it were a serpent, he turned in flight and looked not back. O Musa! draw nigh, and fear not; thou art of the secure ones. (31) "[And now] put thy hand into thy bosom: it will come forth [shining] white, without blemish. And [henceforth] hold thine arm close to thyself, free of all fear. "These, then, shall be the two signs [of thy bearing a message] from thy Sustainer unto Pharaoh and his great ones - for, behold, they are people depraved!" (32) He said: "O my Lord! I have slain a man among them, and I fear lest they slay me. (33) My brother Aaron is more eloquent than I am. Send him with me to support me and back me up. For I fear that they will reject me." (34) [Allah] said, "We will strengthen your arm through your brother and grant you both supremacy so they will not reach you. [It will be] through Our signs; you and those who follow you will be the predominant." (35) And when Moses came to them with Our clear signs, they said: 'This is nothing but forged sorcery. We have never heard of this among our fathers, the ancients.' (36) And Moses said, "My Lord is more knowing [than we or you] of who has come with guidance from Him and to whom will be succession in the home. Indeed, wrongdoers do not succeed." (37) Pharaoh said: "O nobles, I do not know that you have any god beside myself. Haman, bake bricks out of clay and build a lofty palace for me so that I may mount up and be able to observe the god of Moses, even though I believe that Moses is a liar." (38) The Pharaoh and his army were puffed-up with pride in the land for no true cause. They thought that they would never return to Us. (39) Therefore We seized him and his hosts, and cast their into the sea; so behold how was the end of the evildoers! (40) And We made them leaders inviting to the Fire, and on the Day of Resurrection, they will not be helped. (41) We have caused a curse to follow them in this world and, on the Day of Judgement, they will be among the wretched. (42)
