In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
Al-Quran is a reminder for those who fear Allah, the Creator of the heavens and earth
1 Ta Ha. 2534
2 We have not sent down the Qur'an to thee to be (an occasion) for thy distress 2535
3 But only as an admonition to those who fear (Allah)
4 A revelation from Him Who created the earth and the heavens on high.
5 (Allah) Most Gracious is firmly established on the throne (of authority). 2536
6 To Him belongs what is in the heavens and on earth and all between them and all beneath the soil. 2537
7 If thou pronounce the word aloud (it is no matter): for verily He knoweth what is secret and what is yet more hidden. 2538
8 Allah! there is no god but He! To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names. 2539
Prophet Musa went to the sacred valley of 'Tuwa' at mount Tur
9 Has the story of Moses reached thee? 2540
10 Behold he saw a fire: so he said to his family "Tarry ye; I perceive a fire; perhaps I can bring you some burning brand therefrom or find some guidance at the fire." 2541 2542
11 But when he came to the fire a voice was heard: "O Moses!
12 "Verily I am thy Lord! Therefore (in My presence) put off thy shoes: thou art in the sacred valley Tuwa. 2543 2544
13 "I have chosen thee: listen then to the inspiration (sent to thee).
14 "Verily I am Allah: there is no god but I: so serve thou me (only) and establish regular prayer for celebrating My praise.
15 "Verily the Hour is coming My design is to keep it hidden for every soul to receive its reward by the measure of its endeavor. 2545 2546
16 "Therefore let not such as believe not therein but follow their own lusts divert thee therefrom lest thou perish!" 2547
Allah chose him as His Rasool and assigned him towards Fir'on (Pharaoh)
17 And what is that in thy right hand O Moses?"
18 He said "It is my rod: on it I lean; with it I beat down fodder for my flocks; and in it I find other uses." 2548
19 (Allah) said "Throw it O Moses!"
20 He threw it and behold! it was a snake active in motion. 2549
21 (Allah) said "Seize it and fear not: We shall return it at once to its former condition"...
22 Now draw thy hand close to thy side: it shall come forth white (and shining) without harm (or stain) as another Sign 2550
23 "In order that We may show thee (two) of Our Greater Signs.
24 "Go thou to Pharaoh for he had indeed transgressed all bounds." 2551
Prophet Musa prayed to Allah to open his heart, easy his task and remove the impediment from his speech so that people may understand, what he says Allah granted his request and reminded him about His favors
25 (Moses) said: "O my Lord! expand me my breast;" 2552
26 "Ease my task for me;
27 "And remove the impediment from my speech. 2553
28 "So they may understand what I say:
29 "And give me a Minister from my family
30 "Aaron my brother;
31 "Add to my strength through him 2554
32 "And make him share my task:
33 "That we may celebrate Thy praise without stint 2555
34 "And remember Thee without stint:
35 For Thou art He that (ever) regardeth us." 2556
36 (Allah) said: "Granted is thy prayer O Moses!"
37 "And indeed We conferred a favor on thee another time (before).
38 "Behold! We sent to thy mother by inspiration the message: 2557
39 " `Throw (the child) into the chest and throw (the chest) into the river: the river will cast him up on the bank and he will be taken up by one who is an enemy to Me and an enemy to him': but I cast (the garment of) love over thee from Me: and (this) in order that thou mayest be reared under Mine eye. 2558 2559 2560
40 "Behold! thy sister goeth forth and saith `Shall I show you one who will nurse and rear the (child)?' So We brought thee back to thy mother that her eye might be cooled and she should not grieve. Then thou didst slay a man but We saved thee from trouble and We tried thee in various ways. Then didst thou tarry a number of years with the people of Midian. Then didst thou come hither as ordained O Moses! 2561 2562 2563 2564
41 "And I have prepared thee for Myself (for service)"...
42 "Go thou and thy brother with My Signs and slacken not either of you in keeping Me in remembrance. 2565
43 "Go both of you to Pharaoh for he has indeed transgressed all bounds; 2566 2567
44 "But speak to him mildly; perchance he may take warning or fear (Allah)." 2568
45 They (Moses and Aaron) said: "Our Lord! we fear lest He hasten with insolence against us or lest he transgress all bounds." 2569
46 He said: "Fear not: for I am with you: I hear and see (everything).
47 "So go ye both to him and say `Verily we are apostles sent by thy Lord: send forth therefore the Children of Israel with us and afflict them not: with a Sign indeed have we come from thy Lord! And peace to all who follow guidance! 2570 2571
48 " `Verily it has been revealed to us that the Penalty (awaits) those who reject and turn away.' "
Dialogue between Musa and Fir'on
49 (When this message was delivered) (Pharaoh) said: "Who then O Moses is the Lord of you two?" 2572
50 He said: "Our Lord is He Who gave to each (created) thing its form and nature and further gave (it) guidance." 2573
51 (Pharaoh) said: "What then is the condition of previous generations?" 2574
52 He replied: "The knowledge of that is with my Lord duly recorded: my Lord never errs nor forgets 2575
53 "He Who has made for you the earth like a carpet spread out; has enabled you to go about therein by roads (and channels); and has sent down water from the sky." With it have We produced divers pairs of plants each separate from the others. 2576 2577 2578
54 Eat (for yourselves) and pasture your cattle: verily in this are Signs for men endued with understanding.
Human life cycle
55 From the (earth) did We create you and into it shall We return you and from it shall We bring you out once again. 2579
Fir'on disbelieved Musa by calling his miracles a magician trick and challenged him to confront his magicians in public - Musa accepted the challenge
56 And We showed Pharaoh all Our Signs but he did reject and refuse. 2580
57 He said: "Hast thou come to drive us out of our land with thy magic O Moses? 2581
58 "But we can surely produce magic to match thine! So make a tryst between us and thee which we shall not fail to keep neither we nor thou in a place where both shall have even chances." 2582
59 Moses said: "Your tryst is the Day of the Festival and let the people be assembled when the sun is well up." 2583
60 So Pharaoh withdrew: he concerted his plan and then came (back). 2584
61 Moses said to him: "Woe to you! forge not ye a lie against Allah lest He destroy you (at once) utterly by chastisement: the forger must suffer frustration!" 2585
62 So they disputed one with another over their affair but they kept their talk secret. 2586
63 They said: "These two are certainly (expert) magicians: their object is to drive you out from your land with their magic and to do away with your Most cherished institutions. 2587
64 "Therefore concert your plan. And then assemble in (serried) ranks: he wins (all along) today who gains the upper hand." 2588
Confrontation of Musa and Fir'on's magicians, after witnessing Musa's miracle Magicians accepted Islam and Dialogue between Magicians and Fir'on
65 They said: "O Moses! whether wilt thou that thou throw (first) or that we be the first to throw?"
66 He said "Nay throw ye first!" Then behold their ropes and their rods so it seemed to him on account of their magic began to be in lively motion! 2589
67 So Moses conceived in his mind a (sort of) fear. 2590
68 We said: "Fear not! for thou hast indeed the upper hand:
69 "Throw that which is in thy right hand: quickly will it swallow up that which they have faked. What they have faked is but a magician's trick: and the magician thrives not (no matter) where he goes." 2591
70 So the magicians were thrown down to prostration: they said "We believe in the Lord of Aaron and Moses." 2592
71 (Pharaoh) said: "Believe ye in Him before I give you permission? Surely this must be your leader who has taught you magic! Be sure I will cut off your hands and feet on opposite sides and I will have you crucified on trunks of palm-trees: So shall ye know for certain which of us can give the more severe and the more lasting Punishment!" 2593
72 They said: "Never shall we regard thee as more than the Clear Signs that have come to us or than Him Who created us! So decree whatever thou desirest to decree: for thou canst only decree (touching) the life of this world. 2594 2595
73 For us we have believed in our Lord: may He forgive us our faults and the magic to which thou didst compel us: for Allah is Best and Most Abiding." 2596
74 Verily he who comes to his Lord as a sinner (at judgment) for him is Hell: therein shall he neither die nor live. 2597
75 But such as comes to Him as Believers who have worked righteous deeds--for them are ranks exalted
76 Gardens of Eternity beneath which flow rivers: they will dwell therein for aye: such is the reward of those who purify themselves (from evil). 2598
Deliverance of the Children of Israel from the bondage of Fir'on
77 We sent an inspiration to Moses: "Travel by night with my servants and strike a dry path for them through the sea without fear of being overtaken (by Pharaoh) and without (any other) fear." 2599
78 Then Pharaoh pursued them with his forces but the waters completely overwhelmed them and covered them up.
79 Pharaoh led his people astray instead of leading them aright. 2600
80 O ye Children of Israel! We delivered you from your enemy and We made a Covenant with you on the side of Mount (Sinai) and We sent down to you Manna and quails: 2601
81 (Saying): "Eat of the good things We have provided for your sustenance but commit no excess therein lest My Wrath should justly descend on you: and those on whom descends My Wrath do perish indeed! 2602 2603
82 "But without doubt I am (also) He that forgives again and again to those who repent believe and do right who in fine are ready to receive true guidance."
When Prophet Musa went to Mount Tur for communion with Allah - Israelites started worshipping calf in his absence
83 (When Moses was up on the mount Allah said:) "What made thee hasten in advance of thy people O Moses?" 2604
84 He replied: "Behold they are close on my footsteps: I hastened to Thee o my Lord to please Thee."
85 (Allah) said: "We have tested thy people in thy absence: the Samiri has led them astray." 2605
86 So Moses returned to his people in state of indignation and sorrow. He said: "O my people! did not your Lord make a handsome promise to you? Did then the promise seem to you long (in coming)? Or did ye desire that Wrath should descend from your Lord on you and so ye broke your promise to me?" 2606
87 They said: "We broke not the promise to thee as far as lay in our power: but we were made to carry the weight of the ornaments of the (whole) people and we threw them (into the fire) and that was what the Samiri suggested. 2607 2608
88 "Then he brought out (of the fire) before the (people) the image of a calf: it seemed to low: so they said: `This is your god and the god of Moses but (Moses) has forgotten!' " 2609 2610 2611
89 Could they not see that it could not return them a word (for answer) and that it had no power either to harm them or to do them good? 2612
Musa's inquiry about the idol worshipping, his decision about Samiri, Golden Calf and his address to his people
90 Aaron had already before this said to them: "O my people! ye are being tested in this: for verily your Lord is (Allah) Most Gracious: so follow me and obey my command." 2613 2614
91 They had said: "We will not abandon this cult but we will devote ourselves to it until Moses returns to us. 2615 2616
92 (Moses) said: " O Aaron! what kept thee back when thou sawest them going wrong
93 "From following me? Didst thou then disobey my order?" 2617
94 (Aaron) replied: "O son of my mother! seize (me not) by my beard nor by (the hair of) my head! Truly I feared lest thou shouldst say `Thou hast caused a division among the Children of Israel and thou didst not respect my word!'" 2618 2619
95 (Moses) said: "What then is thy case O Samiri?" 2620
96 He replied: "I saw what they saw not: so I took a handful (of dust) from the footprint of the Apostle and threw it (into the calf): thus did my soul suggest to me." 2621
97 (Moses) said: "Get thee gone! but thy (punishment) in this life will be that thou wilt say `Touch me not'; and moreover (for a future penalty) thou hast a promise that will not fail: now look at thy god of whom thou hast become a devoted worshipper: we will certainly (melt) it in a blazing fire and scatter it broadcast in the sea!" 2622 2623 2624
98 But the god of you all is the One Allah: there is no god but He: all things He comprehends in His knowledge.
AL-Quran is but a reminder and the life of this world shall appears to be no longer than one day in the Hereafter
99 Thus do We relate to thee some stories of what happened before: for We have sent thee a Message from Our own Presence. 2625
100 If any do turn away therefrom verily they will bear a burden on the Day of Judgement;
101 They will abide in this (state): and grievous will the burden be to them on that Day 2626
102 The Day when the Trumpet will be sounded: that Day We shall gather the sinful blear-eyed (with terror) 2627
103 In whispers will they consult each other: "Ye tarried not longer than ten (Days)"; 2628
104 We know best what they will say when their leader most eminent in Conduct will say: "Ye tarried not longer than a day!" 2629
A scene from the Day of judgement
105 They ask thee concerning the mountains: say "My Lord will uproot them and scatter them as dust;" 2630 2631
106 "He will leave them as plains smooth and level;"
107 Nothing crooked or curved wilt thou see in their place."
108 On that Day will they follow the Caller (straight): no crookedness (can they show) him: all sounds shall humble themselves in the presence of (Allah) Most Gracious: nothing shalt thou hear but the tramp of their feet (as they march). 2632 2633
109 On that Day shall no intercession avail except for those for whom permission has been granted by (Allah) Most Gracious and whose word is acceptable to Him. 2634
110 He knows what (appears to His creatures as) before or after or behind them: but they shall not compass it with their knowledge. 2635
111 (All) faces shall be humbled before (Him) the Living the Self-Subsisting Eternal: hopeless indeed will be the man that carries iniquity (on his back). 2636
112 But he who works deeds of righteousness and has faith will have no fear of harm nor of any curtailment (of what is his due). 2637
AL-Quran is sent in Arabic to teach and to remind, so read and say, "O Rabb increase my Knowledge"
113 Thus have we sent this down an Arabic Qur'an and explained therein in detail some of the warnings in order that they may fear Allah or that it may cause their remembrance (of Him). 2638
114 High above all is Allah the King the Truth! Be not in haste with the Qur'an before its revelation to thee is completed but say "O my Lord! advance me in knowledge." 2639
115 We had already beforehand taken the covenant of Adam but he forgot: and We found on his part no firm resolve. 2640
Story of Adam's creation and Shaitan's temptation and Allah forgave Adam's sin, chose him and guided him to the right Way and Those who do not read AL-Quran and follow its guidance shall be raise as blind on the Day of Resurrection
116 When We said to the angels "Prostrate yourselves to Adam" they prostrated themselves but not Iblis: he refused.
117 Then We said: "O Adam! verily this is an enemy to thee and thy wife: so let him not get you both out of the Garden so that thou art landed in misery. 2641
118 "There is therein (enough provision) for thee not to go hungry nor to go naked" 2642
119 "Nor to suffer from thirst nor from the sun's heat."
120 But Satan whispered evil to him: he said "O Adam! shall I lead thee to Tree of Eternity and to a kingdom that never decays?" 2643
121 In the result they both ate of the tree and so their nakedness appeared to them: they began to sew together for their covering leaves from the Garden: thus did Adam disobey His Lord and allow himself to be seduced. 2644 2645
122 But his Lord chose him (for His Grace): He turned to him and gave him guidance.
123 He said: "Get ye down both of you all together from the Garden with enmity one to another; but if as is sure there comes to you guidance from Me whosoever follows My guidance will not lose his way nor fall into misery. 2646 2647
124 "But whosoever turns away from My Message verily for him is a life narrowed down and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Judgment." 2648
125 He will say: "O my Lord! why hast thou raised me up blind while I had sight (before)?" 2649
126 (Allah) will say: "Thus didst thou when Our Signs came unto thee disregard them: so wilt thou this day be disregarded." 2650
127 And thus do We recompense him who transgresses beyond bounds and believes not in the Signs of his Lord: and the Penalty of the Hereafter is far more grievous and more enduring. 2651
128 It is not a warning to such men (to call to mind) how many generations before them We destroyed in whose haunts they (now) move? Verily in this are Signs for men endued with understanding. 2652
Do not envy others in worldly benefits, rather seek Allah's pleasure if you want to attain the blessed end
129 Had it not been for a Word that went forth before from thy Lord (their punishment) must necessarily have come; but there is a term appointed (for respite). 2653
130 Therefore be patient with what they say and celebrate (constantly) the praises of thy Lord before the rising of the sun and before its setting; yea celebrate them for part of the hours of the night and at the sides of the day: that thou mayest have (spiritual) joy. 2654 2655
131 Nor strain thine eyes in longing for the things We have given for enjoyment to parties of them the splendor of the life of this world through which We test them: but the provision of thy Lord is better and more enduring. 2656
132 Enjoin prayer on thy people and be constant therein. We ask thee not to provide sustenance: We provide it for thee. But the (fruit of) the Hereafter is for Righteousness. 2657
AL-Quran is a sign from Allah so there can be no excuse for the unbelievers on the Day of Judgement
133 They say: "Why does he not bring us a Sign from His Lord?" Has not a clear Sign come to them of all that was in the former Books of revelation? 2658
134 And if We had inflicted on them a Penalty before this they would have said: "Our Lord! if only Thou hadst sent us an apostle we should certainly have followed Thy Signs before we were humbled and put to shame." 2659
135 Say: "Each one (of us) is waiting: wait ye therefore and soon shall ye know who it is that is on the straight and even way and who it is that has received guidance." 2660 2661
