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) And fear a Day when no soul will suffice for another soul at all, nor will intercession be accepted from it, nor will compensation be taken from it, nor will they be aided. (48) And [recall] when We saved your forefathers from the people of Pharaoh, who afflicted you with the worst torment, slaughtering your [newborn] sons and keeping your females alive. And in that was a great trial from your Lord. (49) Remember, We parted the sea and saved you, and drowned the men of Pharaoh before your very eyes. (50) Yet, remember, as We communed with Moses for forty nights you took the calf in his absence (and worshipped it), and you did wrong. (51) Even so, We pardoned you that you may be grateful. (52) And (remember) when We gave Musa (Moses) the Scripture [the Taurat (Torah)] and the criterion (of right and wrong) so that you may 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 when you said, 'Moses, we will not believe thee till we see God openly'; and the thunderbolt took you while you were beholding. (55) Then We revived you after your death that perhaps you would be grateful. (56) And made the cloud spread shade over you, and sent for you manna and quails that you may eat of the good things We have made for you. No harm was done to Us, they only harmed themselves. (57) And remember We said: "Enter this town, and eat of the plenty therein as ye wish; but enter the gate with humility, in posture and in words, and We shall forgive you your faults and increase (the portion of) those who do good." (58) But the wrongdoers changed the words to something other than what they had been told. So We sent down upon the transgressors a punishment from heaven, because they were disobedient. (59)
