Juz 1
Children of Israel! call to mind the (special) favour which I bestowed upon you, and that I preferred you to all other (for My Message). (47) Take heed of the day when no man will be useful to man in the least, when no intercession matter nor ransom avail, nor help reach them. (48) Remember when We delivered you from Pharaoh's people, who subjected you to grievous torment, slaying your sons and sparing only your daughters, surely in that there was a great trial for you from your Lord, (49) And [recall] when We parted the sea for you and saved you and drowned the people of Pharaoh while you were looking on. (50) and when We appointed for Moses forty nights [on Mount Sinai,] and in his absence you took to worshipping the [golden] calf, and thus became evildoers: (51) Then We forgave you after that so perhaps you would be grateful. (52) And remember We gave Moses the Scripture and the Criterion (Between right and wrong): There was a chance for you to be guided aright. (53) and when Moses said unto his people: "O my people! Verily, you have sinned against yourselves by worshipping the calf; turn then, in repentance to your Maker and mortify yourselves; this will be the best for you in your Maker's sight". And thereupon He accepted your repentance: for, behold, He alone is the Acceptor of Repentance, the Dispenser of Grace. (54) And (remember) when you said: "O Musa (Moses)! We shall never believe in you till we see Allah plainly." But you were seized with a thunderbolt (lightning) while you were looking. (55) Then We raised you to life so that you might become grateful for this favour. (56) And We gave you the shade of clouds and sent down to you Manna and quails, saying: "Eat of the good things We have provided for you:" (But they rebelled); to us they did no harm, but they harmed their own souls. (57) And (remember) when We said: "Enter this town (Jerusalem) and eat bountifully therein with pleasure and delight wherever you wish, and enter the gate in prostration (or bowing with humility) and say: 'Forgive us,' and We shall forgive you your sins and shall increase (reward) for the good-doers." (58) But the transgressors changed the word from that which had been given them; so We sent on the transgressors a plague from heaven, for that they infringed (Our command) repeatedly. (59)
