;

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!
