Juz 1
O children of Israel! Remember those blessings of Mine with which I graced you, and how I favoured you above all other people; (47) And fear the Day (of Resurrection) when no soul will be exchanged for another, nor will any intercession be accepted for the disbelievers, nor will they be set free in lieu of compensation nor will they be helped. (48) (And remember) When We rescued you from Firaun’s people, for they were inflicting you with a dreadful torment, slaying your sons and sparing your daughters; that was a tremendous trial from your Lord (or a great reward). (49) We parted the sea to save you and drowned Pharaoh's people before your very eyes. (50) And (remember) when We appointed for Musa (Moses) forty nights, and (in his absence) you took the calf (for worship), and you were Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.). (51) Then after that We pardoned you so that you may be grateful. (52) And recall what time We vouchsafed unto Musa the Book and the distinction that haply ye may be guided. (53) And when Moses said unto his people: O my people! Ye have wronged yourselves by your choosing of the calf (for worship) so turn in penitence to your Creator, and kill (the guilty) yourselves. That will be best for you with your Creator and He will relent toward you. Lo! He is the Relenting, the Merciful. (54) And when you said: O Musa! we will not believe in you until we see Allah manifestly, so the punishment overtook you while you looked on. (55) Then We brought you back to life in the hope that you might appreciate Our favors. (56) We provided you with shade from the clouds and sent down manna and quails as the best pure sustenance for you to eat. They (children of Israel) did not wrong Us but wronged themselves. (57) And when We said, 'Enter this township, and eat easefully of it wherever you will, and enter in at the gate, prostrating, and say, Unburdening; We will forgive you your transgressions, and increase the good-doers.' (58) But those who did wrong changed the word which had been told them for another saying, and We sent down upon the evil-doers wrath from heaven for their evil-doing. (59)
