Ṭâ-Sĩn-Mĩm.
2
These are the verses of the clear Book.
3
Perhaps you ˹O Prophet˺ will grieve yourself to death over their disbelief.
4
If We willed, We could send down upon them a ˹compelling˺ sign from the heavens, leaving their necks bent in ˹utter˺ submission to it.
5
Whatever new reminder comes to them from the Most Compassionate, they always turn away from it.
6
They have certainly denied ˹the truth˺, so they will soon face the consequences of their ridicule.
7
Have they failed to look at the earth, ˹to see˺ how many types of fine plants We have caused to grow in it?
8
Surely in this is a sign. Yet most of them would not believe.
9
And your Lord is certainly the Almighty, Most Merciful.
10
˹Remember˺ when your Lord called out to Moses, “Go to the wrongdoing people—
11
the people of Pharaoh. Will they not fear ˹Allah˺?”
12
He replied, “My Lord! I fear that they will reject me.
13
And ˹so˺ my heart will be broken and my tongue will be tied. So send Aaron along ˹as a messenger˺.
14
Also, they have a charge against me,1 so I fear they may kill me.”
15
Allah responded, “Certainly not! So go, both of you, with Our signs. We will be with you, listening.
16
Go to Pharaoh and say, ‘We are messengers from the Lord of all worlds,
17
˹commanded to say:˺ ‘Let the Children of Israel go with us.’’”
18
Pharaoh protested, “Did we not raise you among us as a child, and you stayed several years of your life in our care?
19
Then you did what you did,1 being ˹utterly˺ ungrateful!”
20
Moses replied, “I did it then, lacking guidance.
21
So I fled from you when I feared you. Then my Lord granted me wisdom and made me one of the messengers.
22
How can that be a ‘favour,’ of which you remind me, when ˹it was only because˺ you ˹have˺ enslaved the Children of Israel?”
23
Pharaoh asked, “And what is ‘the Lord of all worlds’?”
24
Moses replied, “˹He is˺ the Lord of the heavens and the earth and everything in between, if only you had sure faith.”
25
Pharaoh said to those around him, “Did you hear ˹what he said˺?”
26
Moses added, “˹He is˺ your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers.”
27
Pharaoh said ˹mockingly˺, “Your messenger, who has been sent to you, must be insane.”
28
Moses responded: “˹He is˺ the Lord of the east and west, and everything in between, if only you had any sense.”
29
Pharaoh threatened, “If you take any other god besides me, I will certainly have you imprisoned.”
30
Moses responded, “Even if I bring you a clear proof?”
31
Pharaoh demanded, “Bring it then, if what you say is true.”
32
So he threw down his staff and—behold!—it became a real snake.
33
Then he drew his hand ˹out of his collar˺ and it was ˹shining˺ white for all to see.
34
Pharaoh said to the chiefs around him, “He is indeed a skilled magician,
35
who seeks to drive you from your land by his magic. So what do you propose?”
36
They replied, “Let him and his brother wait and dispatch mobilizers to all cities
37
to bring you every skilled magician.”
38
So the magicians were assembled at the set time on the appointed day.
39
And the people were asked, “Will you join the gathering,
40
so that we may follow the magicians if they prevail?”
41
When the magicians came, they asked Pharaoh, “Shall we have a ˹suitable˺ reward if we prevail?”
42
He replied, “Yes, and you will then certainly be among those closest to me.”
43
Moses said to them, “Cast whatever you wish to cast.”
44
So they cast down their ropes and staffs, saying, “By Pharaoh’s might, it is we who will surely prevail.”
45
Then Moses threw down his staff, and—behold!—it devoured the objects of their illusion!
46
So the magicians fell down, prostrating.
47
They declared, “We ˹now˺ believe in the Lord of all worlds—
48
the Lord of Moses and Aaron.”
49
Pharaoh threatened, “How dare you believe in him before I give you permission? He must be your master who taught you magic, but soon you will see. I will certainly cut off your hands and feet on opposite sides, then crucify you all.”
50
They responded, “˹That would be˺ no harm! Surely to our Lord we will ˹all˺ return.
51
We really hope that our Lord will forgive our sins, as we are the first to believe.”
52
And We inspired Moses, ˹saying,˺ “Leave with My servants at night, for you will surely be pursued.”
53
Then Pharaoh sent mobilizers to all cities,
54
˹and said,˺ “These ˹outcasts˺ are just a handful of people,
55
who have really enraged us,
56
but we are all on the alert.”
57
So We lured the tyrants1 out of ˹their˺ gardens, springs,
58
treasures, and splendid residences.
59
So it was. And We awarded it ˹all˺ to the Children of Israel.
60
And so they pursued them at sunrise.
61
When the two groups came face to face, the companions of Moses cried out, “We are overtaken for sure.”
62
Moses reassured ˹them˺, “Absolutely not! My Lord is certainly with me—He will guide me.”
63
So We inspired Moses: “Strike the sea with your staff,” and the sea was split, each part was like a huge mountain.
64
We drew the pursuers to that place,
65
and delivered Moses and those with him all together.
66
Then We drowned the others.
67
Surely in this is a sign. Yet most of them would not believe.
68
And your Lord is certainly the Almighty, Most Merciful.
69
Relate to them ˹O Prophet˺ the story of Abraham,
70
when he questioned his father and his people, “What is that you worship ˹besides Allah˺?”
71
They replied, “We worship idols, to which we are fully devoted.”
72
Abraham asked, “Can they hear you when you call upon them?
73
Or can they benefit or harm you?”
74
They replied, “No! But we found our forefathers doing the same.”
75
Abraham responded, “Have you ˹really˺ considered what you have been worshipping—
76
you and your ancestors?
77
They are ˹all˺ enemies to me, except the Lord of all worlds.
78
˹He is˺ the One Who created me, and He ˹alone˺ guides me.
79
˹He is˺ the One Who provides me with food and drink.
80
And He ˹alone˺ heals me when I am sick.
81
And He ˹is the One Who˺ will cause me to die, and then bring me back to life.
82
And He is ˹the One˺ Who, I hope, will forgive my flaws1 on Judgment Day.”
83
“My Lord! Grant me wisdom, and join me with the righteous.
84
Bless me with honourable mention among later generations.1
85
Make me one of those awarded the Garden of Bliss.
86
Forgive my father, for he is certainly one of the misguided.
87
And do not disgrace me on the Day all will be resurrected—
88
the Day when neither wealth nor children will be of any benefit.
89
Only those who come before Allah with a pure heart ˹will be saved˺.”1 
90
˹On that Day˺ Paradise will be brought near to the God-fearing,
91
and the Hellfire will be displayed to the deviant.
92
And it will be said to them, “Where are those you used to worship
93
besides Allah? Can they help you or even help themselves?”
94
Then the idols will be hurled headlong into Hell, along with the deviant
95
and the soldiers of Iblîs,1 all together.
96
There the deviant will cry while disputing with their idols,
97
“By Allah! We were clearly mistaken,
98
when we made you equal to the Lord of all worlds.
99
And none led us astray other than the wicked.
100
Now we have none to intercede for us,
101
nor a close friend.
102
If only we could have a second chance, then we would be believers.”
103
Surely in this is a sign. Yet most of them would not believe.
104
And your Lord is certainly the Almighty, Most Merciful.
105
The people of Noah rejected the messengers1
106
when their brother Noah said to them, “Will you not fear ˹Allah˺?
107
I am truly a trustworthy messenger to you.
108
So fear Allah, and obey me.
109
I do not ask you for any reward for this ˹message˺. My reward is only from the Lord of all worlds.
110
So fear Allah, and obey me.”
111
They argued, “How can we believe in you, when you are followed ˹only˺ by the lowest of the low?”1
112
He responded, “And what knowledge do I have of what they do?
113
Their judgment is with my Lord, if you had any sense!
114
I am not going to expel the believers.
115
I am only sent with a clear warning.”
116
They threatened, “If you do not desist, O  Noah, you will surely be stoned ˹to death˺.”
117
Noah prayed, “My Lord! My people have truly rejected me.
118
So judge between me and them decisively, and save me and the believers with me.”
119
So We saved him and those with him in the fully loaded Ark.
120
Then afterwards We drowned the rest.
121
Surely in this is a sign. Yet most of them would not believe.
122
And your Lord is certainly the Almighty, Most Merciful.
123
The people of ’Âd rejected the messengers
124
when their brother Hûd said to them, “Will you not fear ˹Allah˺?
125
I am truly a trustworthy messenger to you.
126
So fear Allah, and obey me.
127
I do not ask you for any reward for this ˹message˺. My reward is only from the Lord of all worlds.
128
˹Why˺ do you build a landmark on every high place in vanity,
129
and construct castles, as if you are going to live forever,
130
and act so viciously when you attack ˹others˺?
131
So fear Allah, and obey me.
132
Fear the One Who has provided you with ˹the good˺ things you know:
133
He provided you with cattle, and children,
134
and gardens, and springs.
135
I truly fear for you the torment of a tremendous day.”
136
They responded, “It is all the same to us whether you warn ˹us˺ or not.
137
This is simply the tradition of our predecessors.
138
And we will never be punished.”
139
So they rejected him, and ˹so˺ We destroyed them. Surely in this is a sign. Yet most of them would not believe.
140
And your Lord is certainly the Almighty, Most Merciful.
141
The people of Thamûd rejected the messengers
142
when their brother Ṣâliḥ said to them, “Will you not fear ˹Allah˺?
143
I am truly a trustworthy messenger to you.
144
So fear Allah, and obey me.
145
I do not ask you for any reward for this ˹message˺. My reward is only from the Lord of all worlds.
146
Do you think you will be ˹forever˺ left secure in what you have here:
147
amid gardens and springs,
148
and ˹various˺ crops, and palm trees ˹loaded˺ with tender fruit;
149
to carve homes in the mountains with great skill?
150
So fear Allah, and obey me.
151
And do not follow the command of the transgressors,
152
who spread corruption throughout the land, never setting things right.”
153
They replied, “You are simply bewitched!
154
You are only a human being like us, so bring forth a sign if what you say is true.”
155
Ṣâliḥ said, “Here is a camel. She will have her turn to drink as you have yours, each on an appointed day.
156
And do not ever touch her with harm, or you will be overtaken by the torment of a tremendous day.”
157
But they killed her, becoming regretful.
158
So the punishment overtook them. Surely in this is a sign. Yet most of them would not believe.
159
And your Lord is certainly the Almighty, Most Merciful.
160
The people of Lot rejected the messengers
161
when their brother Lot said to them, “Will you not fear ˹Allah˺?
162
I am truly a trustworthy messenger to you.
163
So fear Allah, and obey me.
164
I do not ask you for any reward for this ˹message˺. My reward is only from the Lord of all worlds.
165
Why do you ˹men˺ lust after fellow men,1
166
leaving the wives that your Lord has created for you? In fact, you are a transgressing people.”
167
They threatened, “If you do not desist, O  Lot, you will surely be expelled.”
168
Lot responded, “I am truly one of those who despise your ˹shameful˺ practice.
169
My Lord! Save me and my family from ˹the consequences of˺ what they do.”
170
So We saved him and all of his family,
171
except an old woman,1 who was one of the doomed.
172
Then We utterly destroyed the rest,
173
pouring upon them a rain ˹of brimstone˺. How evil was the rain of those who had been warned!
174
Surely in this is a sign. Yet most of them would not believe.
175
And your Lord is certainly the Almighty, Most Merciful.
176
The residents of the Forest rejected the messengers
177
when Shu’aib said to them,1 “Will you not fear ˹Allah˺?
178
I am truly a trustworthy messenger to you.
179
So fear Allah, and obey me.
180
I do not ask you for any reward for this ˹message˺. My reward is only from the Lord of all worlds.
181
Give full measure, and cause no loss ˹to others˺.
182
Weigh with an even balance,
183
and do not defraud people of their property. Nor go about spreading corruption in the land.
184
And fear the One Who created you and ˹all˺ earlier peoples.”
185
They replied, “You are simply bewitched!
186
Also, you are only a human being like us, and we think you are indeed a liar.
187
So cause ˹deadly˺ pieces of the sky to fall upon us, if what you say is true.”
188
Shu’aib responded, “My Lord knows best whatever you do.”
189
So they rejected him, and ˹so˺ were overtaken by the torment of the day of the ˹deadly˺ cloud.1 That was really a torment of a tremendous day.
190
Surely in this is a sign. Yet most of them would not believe.
191
And your Lord is certainly the Almighty, Most Merciful.
192
This is certainly a revelation from the Lord of all worlds,
193
which the trustworthy spirit ˹Gabriel˺ brought down
194
into your heart ˹O Prophet˺—so that you may be one of the warners—
195
in a clear Arabic tongue.
196
And it has indeed been ˹foretold˺ in the Scriptures of those before.
197
Was it not sufficient proof for the deniers that it has been recognized by the knowledgeable among the Children of Israel?1
198
Had We revealed it to a non-Arab,
199
who would then recite it to the deniers ˹in fluent Arabic˺, still they would not have believed in it!
200
This is how We allow denial ˹to steep˺ into the hearts of the wicked.
201
They will not believe in it until they see the painful punishment,
202
which will take them by surprise when they least expect ˹it˺.
203
Then they will cry, “Can we be allowed more time?”
204
Do they ˹really˺ seek to hasten Our torment?
205
Imagine ˹O Prophet˺ if We allowed them enjoyment for years,
206
then there came to them what they had been threatened with:
207
would that enjoyment be of any benefit to them ˹at all˺?
208
We have never destroyed a society without warners
209
to remind ˹them˺, for We would never wrong ˹anyone˺.
210
It was not the devils who brought this ˹Quran˺ down:
211
it is not for them ˹to do so˺, nor can they,
212
for they are strictly barred from ˹even˺ overhearing ˹it˺.1
213
So do not ever call upon any other god besides Allah, or you will be one of the punished.
214
And warn ˹all, starting with˺ your closest relatives,
215
and be gracious to the believers who follow you.
216
But if they disobey you, say, “I am certainly free of what you do.”
217
Put your trust in the Almighty, Most Merciful,
218
Who sees you when you rise ˹for prayer at night˺,
219
as well as your movements ˹in prayer˺ along with ˹fellow˺ worshippers.
220
He ˹alone˺ is indeed the All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
221
Shall I inform you of whom the devils ˹actually˺ descend upon?
222
They descend upon every sinful liar,
223
who gives an ˹attentive˺ ear ˹to half-truths˺, mostly passing on sheer lies.1 
224
As for poets, they are followed ˹merely˺ by deviants.
225
Do you not see how they rant in every field,1
226
only saying what they never do?
227
Except those who believe, do good, remember Allah often, and ˹poetically˺ avenge ˹the believers˺ after being wrongfully slandered. The wrongdoers will come to know what ˹evil˺ end they will meet.
