1 . Ta. Sin. Mim.
2 . These are revelations of the Scripture that maketh plain.
3 . It may be that thou tormentest thyself (O Muhammad) because they believe not.
4 . If We will, We can send down on them from the sky a portent so that their necks would remain bowed before it.
5 . Never cometh there unto them a fresh reminder from the Beneficent One, but they turn away from it.
6 . Now they have denied (the Truth); but there will come unto them tidings of that whereat they used to scoff.
7 . Have they not seen the earth, how much of every fruitful kind We make to grow therein?
8 . Lo! herein is indeed a portent; yet most of them are not believers.
9 . And lo! thy Lord! He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.
10 . And when thy Lord called Moses, saying: Go unto the wrongdoing folk,
11 . The folk of Pharaoh. Will they not ward off (evil)?
12 . He said: My Lord! Lo! I fear that they will deny me,
13 . And I shall be embarrassed, and my tongue will not speak plainly, therefor send for Aaron (to help me).
14 . And they have a crime against me, so I fear that they will kill me.
15 . He said: Nay, verily. So go ye twain with Our tokens. Lo! We shall be with you, Hearing.
16 . And come together unto Pharaoh and say: Lo! we bear a message of the Lord of the Worlds,
17 . (Saying): Let the Children of Israel go with us.
18 . (Pharaoh) said (unto Moses): Did we not rear thee among us as a child? And thou didst dwell many years of thy life among us,
19 . And thou didst that thy deed which thou didst, and thou wast one of the ingrates.
20 . He said: I did it then, when I was of those who are astray.
21 . Then I fled from you when I feared you, and my Lord vouchsafed me a command and appointed me (of the number) of those sent (by Him).
22 . And this is the past favour wherewith thou reproachest me: that thou hast enslaved the Children of Israel.
23 . Pharaoh said: And what is the Lord of the Worlds?
24 . (Moses) said: Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, if ye had but sure belief.
25 . (Pharaoh) said unto those around him: Hear ye not?
26 . He said: Your Lord and the Lord of your fathers.
27 . (Pharaoh) said: Lo! your messenger who hath been sent unto you is indeed a madman!
28 . He said: Lord of the East and the West and all that is between them, if ye did but understand.
29 . (Pharaoh) said: If thou choosest a god other than me, I assuredly shall place thee among the prisoners.
30 . He said: Even though I show thee something plain?
31 . (Pharaoh) said: Produce it then, if thou art of the truthful!
32 . Then he flung down his staff and it became a serpent manifest,
33 . And he drew forth his hand and lo! it was white to the beholders.
34 . (Pharaoh) said unto the chiefs about him: Lo! this is verily a knowing wizard,
35 . Who would drive you out of your land by his magic. Now what counsel ye?
36 . They said: Put him off, (him) and his brother, and send into the cities summoners
37 . Who shall bring unto thee every knowing wizard.
38 . So the wizards were gathered together at a set time on a day appointed.
39 . And it was said unto the people: Are ye (also) gathering?
40 . (They said): Aye, so that we may follow the wizards if they are the winners.
41 . And when the wizards came they said unto Pharaoh: Will there surely be a reward for us if we are the winners?
42 . He said: Aye, and ye will then surely be of those brought near (to me).
43 . Moses said unto them: Throw what ye are going to throw!
44 . Then they threw down their cords and their staves and said: By Pharaoh´s might, lo! we verily are the winners.
45 . Then Moses threw his staff and lo! it swallowed that which they did falsely show.
46 . And the wizards were flung prostrate,
47 . Crying: We believe in the Lord of the Worlds,
48 . The Lord of Moses and Aaron.
49 . (Pharaoh) said: Ye put your faith in him before I give you leave. Lo! he doubtless is your chief who taught you magic! But verily ye shall come to know. Verily I will cut off your hands and your feet alternately, and verily I will crucify you every one.
50 . They said: It is no hurt, for lo! unto our Lord we shall return.
51 . Lo! we ardently hope that our Lord will forgive us our sins because we are the first of the believers.
52 . And We inspired Moses, saying: Take away My slaves by night, for ye will be pursued.
53 . Then Pharaoh sent into the cities summoners,
54 . (Who said): Lo! these indeed are but a little troop,
55 . And lo! they are offenders against us.
56 . And lo! we are a ready host.
57 . Thus did We take them away from gardens and watersprings,
58 . And treasures and a fair estate.
59 . Thus (were those things taken from them) and We caused the Children of Israel to inherit them.
60 . And they overtook them at sunrise.
61 . And when the two hosts saw each other, those with Moses said: Lo! we are indeed caught.
62 . He said: Nay, verily! for lo! my Lord is with me. He will guide me.
63 . Then We inspired Moses, saying: Smite the sea with thy staff. And it parted, and each part was as a mountain vast.
64 . Then brought We near the others to that place.
65 . And We saved Moses and those with him, every one;
66 . And We drowned the others.
67 . Lo! herein is indeed a portent, yet most of them are not believers.
68 . And lo, thy Lord! He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.
69 . Recite unto them the story of Abraham:
70 . When he said unto his father and his folk: What worship ye?
71 . They said: We worship idols, and are ever devoted unto them.
72 . He said: Do they hear you when ye cry?
73 . Or do they benefit or harm you?
74 . They said: Nay, but we found our fathers acting on this wise.
75 . He said: See now that which ye worship,
76 . Ye and your forefathers!
77 . Lo! they are (all) an enemy unto me, save the Lord of the Worlds,
78 . Who created me, and He doth guide me,
79 . And Who feedeth me and watereth me.
80 . And when I sicken, then He healeth me,
81 . And Who causeth me to die, then giveth me life (again),
82 . And Who, I ardently hope, will forgive me my sin on the Day of Judgment.
83 . My Lord! Vouchsafe me wisdom and unite me to the righteous.
84 . And give unto me a good report in later generations.
85 . And place me among the inheritors of the Garden of Delight,
86 . And forgive my father. Lo! he is of those who err.
87 . And abase me not on the day when they are raised,
88 . The day when wealth and sons avail not (any man)
89 . Save him who bringeth unto Allah a whole heart.
90 . And the Garden will be brought nigh for those who ward off (evil).
91 . And hell will appear plainly to the erring.
92 . And it will be said unto them: Where is (all) that ye used to worship
93 . Instead of Allah? Can they help you or help themselves?
94 . Then will they be hurled therein, they and the seducers
95 . And the hosts of Iblis, together.
96 . And they will say, when they are quarrelling therein:
97 . By Allah, of a truth we were in error manifest
98 . When we made you equal with the Lord of the Worlds.
99 . It was but the guilty who misled us.
100 . Now we have no intercessors
101 . Nor any loving friend.
102 . Oh, that we had another turn (on earth), that we might be of the believers!
103 . Lo! herein is indeed a portent, yet most of them are not believers!
104 . And lo, thy Lord! He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.
105 . Noah´s folk denied the messengers (of Allah),
106 . When their brother Noah said unto them: Will ye not ward off (evil)?
107 . Lo! I am a faithful messenger unto you,
108 . So keep your duty to Allah, and obey me.
109 . And I ask of you no wage therefor; my wage is the concern only of the Lord of the Worlds.
110 . So keep your duty to Allah, and obey me.
111 . They said: Shall we put faith in thee, when the lowest (of the people) follow thee?
112 . He said: And what knowledge have I of what they may have been doing (in the past)?
113 . Lo! their reckoning is my Lord´s concern, if ye but knew;
114 . And I am not (here) to repulse believers.
115 . I am only a plain warner.
116 . They said: If thou cease not, O Noah, thou wilt surely be among those stoned (to death).
117 . He said: My Lord! Lo! my own folk deny me.
118 . Therefor judge Thou between us, a (conclusive) judgment, and save me and those believers who are with me.
119 . And We saved him and those with him in the laden ship.
120 . Then afterward We drowned the others.
121 . Lo! herein is indeed a portent, yet most of them are not believers.
122 . And lo, thy Lord, He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.
123 . (The tribe of) A´ad denied the messengers (of Allah).
124 . When their brother Hud said unto them: Will ye not ward off (evil)?
125 . Lo! I am a faithful messenger unto you,
126 . So keep your duty to Allah and obey me.
127 . And I ask of you no wage therefor; my wage is the concern only of the Lord of the Worlds.
128 . Build ye on every high place a monument for vain delight?
129 . And seek ye out strongholds, that haply ye may last for ever?
130 . And if ye seize by force, seize ye as tyrants?
131 . Rather keep your duty to Allah, and obey me.
132 . Keep your duty toward Him Who hath aided you with (the good things) that ye know,
133 . Hath aided you with cattle and sons.
134 . And gardens and watersprings.
135 . Lo! I fear for you the retribution of an awful day.
136 . They said: It is all one to us whether thou preachest or art not of those who preach;
137 . This is but a fable of the men of old,
138 . And we shall not be doomed.
139 . And they denied him; therefor We destroyed them. Lo! herein is indeed a portent, yet most of them are not believers.
140 . And lo! thy Lord, He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.
141 . (The tribe of) Thamud denied the messengers (of Allah)
142 . When their brother Salih said unto them: Will ye not ward off (evil)?
143 . Lo! I am a faithful messenger unto you,
144 . So keep your duty to Allah and obey me.
145 . And I ask of you no wage therefor; my wage is the concern only of the Lord of the Worlds.
146 . Will ye be left secure in that which is here before us,
147 . In gardens and watersprings.
148 . And tilled fields and heavy-sheathed palm-trees,
149 . Though ye hew out dwellings in the mountain, being skilful?
150 . Therefor keep your duty to Allah and obey me,
151 . And obey not the command of the prodigal,
152 . Who spread corruption in the earth, and reform not.
153 . They said: Thou art but one of the bewitched;
154 . Thou art but a mortal like us. So bring some token if thou art of the truthful.
155 . He said: (Behold) this she-camel. She hath the right to drink (at the well), and ye have the right to drink, (each) on an appointed day.
156 . And touch her not with ill lest there come on you the retribution of an awful day.
157 . But they hamstrung her, and then were penitent.
158 . So the retribution came on them. Lo! herein is indeed a portent, yet most of them are not believers.
159 . And lo! thy Lord! He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.
160 . The folk of Lot denied the messengers (of Allah),
161 . When their brother Lot said unto them: Will ye not ward off (evil)?
162 . Lo! I am a faithful messenger unto you,
163 . So keep your duty to Allah and obey me.
164 . And I ask of you no wage therefor; my wage is the concern only of the Lord of the Worlds.
165 . What! Of all creatures do ye come unto the males,
166 . And leave the wives your Lord created for you? Nay, but ye are froward folk.
167 . They said: If thou cease not, O Lot, thou wilt soon be of the outcast.
168 . He said: I am in truth of those who hate your conduct.
169 . My Lord! Save me and my household from what they do.
170 . So We saved him and his household, every one,
171 . Save an old woman among those who stayed behind.
172 . Then afterward We destroyed the others.
173 . And We rained on them a rain. And dreadful is the rain of those who have been warned.
174 . Lo! herein is indeed a portent, yet most of them are not believers.
175 . And lo! thy Lord, He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.
176 . The dwellers in the wood (of Midian) denied the messengers (of Allah),
177 . When Shu´eyb said unto them: Will ye not ward off (evil)?
178 . Lo! I am a faithful messenger unto you,
179 . So keep your duty to Allah and obey me.
180 . And I ask of you no wage for it; my wage is the concern only of the Lord of the Worlds.
181 . Give full measure, and be not of those who give less (than the due).
182 . And weigh with the true balance.
183 . Wrong not mankind in their goods, and do not evil, making mischief, in the earth.
184 . And keep your duty unto Him Who created you and the generations of the men of old.
185 . They said: Thou art but one of the bewitched;
186 . Thou art but a mortal like us, and lo! we deem thee of the liars.
187 . Then make fragments of the heaven fall upon us, if thou art of the truthful.
188 . He said: My Lord is Best Aware of what ye do.
189 . But they denied him, so there came on them the retribution of the day of gloom. Lo! it was the retribution of an awful day.
190 . Lo! herein is indeed a portent; yet most of them are not believers.
191 . And lo! thy Lord! He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.
192 . And lo! it is a revelation of the Lord of the Worlds,
193 . Which the True Spirit hath brought down
194 . Upon thy heart, that thou mayst be (one) of the warners,
195 . In plain Arabic speech.
196 . And lo! it is in the Scriptures of the men of old.
197 . Is it not a token for them that the doctors of the Children of Israel know it?
198 . And if We had revealed it unto one of any other nation than the Arabs,
199 . And he had read it unto them, they would not have believed in it.
200 . Thus do We make it traverse the hearts of the guilty.
201 . They will not believe in it till they behold the painful doom,
202 . So that it will come upon them suddenly, when they perceive not.
203 . Then they will say: Are we to be reprieved?
204 . Would they (now) hasten on Our doom?
205 . Hast thou then seen, if We content them for (long) years,
206 . And then cometh that which they were promised,
207 . (How) that wherewith they were contented naught availeth them?
208 . And We destroyed no township but it had its warners
209 . For reminder, for We never were oppressors.
210 . The devils did not bring it down.
211 . It is not meet for them, nor is it in their power,
212 . Lo! verily they are banished from the hearing.
213 . Therefor invoke not with Allah another god, lest thou be one of the doomed.
214 . And warn thy tribe of near kindred,
215 . And lower thy wing (in kindness) unto those believers who follow thee.
216 . And if they (thy kinsfolk) disobey thee, say: Lo! I am innocent of what they do.
217 . And put thy trust in the Mighty, the Merciful.
218 . Who seeth thee when thou standest up (to pray)
219 . And (seeth) thine abasement among those who fall prostrate (in worship).
220 . Lo! He, only He, is the Hearer, the Knower.
221 . Shall I inform you upon whom the devils descend?
222 . They descend on every sinful, false one.
223 . They listen eagerly, but most of them are liars.
224 . As for poets, the erring follow them.
225 . Hast thou not seen how they stray in every valley,
226 . And how they say that which they do not?
227 . Save those who believe and do good works, and remember Allah much, and vindicate themselves after they have been wronged. Those who do wrong will come to know by what a (great) reverse they will be overturned!
