بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ طسم(1)
Ta. Sin. Mim.(1)
تِلكَ ءايٰتُ الكِتٰبِ المُبينِ(2)
These are verses of the Book that makes (things) clear.(2)
لَعَلَّكَ بٰخِعٌ نَفسَكَ أَلّا يَكونوا مُؤمِنينَ(3)
It may be thou frettest thy soul with grief, that they do not become Believers.(3)
إِن نَشَأ نُنَزِّل عَلَيهِم مِنَ السَّماءِ ءايَةً فَظَلَّت أَعنٰقُهُم لَها خٰضِعينَ(4)
If (such) were Our Will, We could send down to them from the sky a Sign, to which they would bend their necks in humility.(4)
وَما يَأتيهِم مِن ذِكرٍ مِنَ الرَّحمٰنِ مُحدَثٍ إِلّا كانوا عَنهُ مُعرِضينَ(5)
But there comes not to them a newly-revealed Message from (Allah) Most Gracious, but they turn away therefrom.(5)
فَقَد كَذَّبوا فَسَيَأتيهِم أَنبٰؤُا۟ ما كانوا بِهِ يَستَهزِءونَ(6)
They have indeed rejected (the Message): so they will know soon (enough) the truth of what they mocked at!(6)
أَوَلَم يَرَوا إِلَى الأَرضِ كَم أَنبَتنا فيها مِن كُلِّ زَوجٍ كَريمٍ(7)
Do they not look at the earth,- how many noble things of all kinds We have produced therein?(7)
إِنَّ فى ذٰلِكَ لَءايَةً ۖ وَما كانَ أَكثَرُهُم مُؤمِنينَ(8)
Verily, in this is a Sign: but most of them do not believe.(8)
وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ العَزيزُ الرَّحيمُ(9)
And verily, thy Lord is He, the Exalted in Might, Most Merciful.(9)
وَإِذ نادىٰ رَبُّكَ موسىٰ أَنِ ائتِ القَومَ الظّٰلِمينَ(10)
Behold, thy Lord called Moses: "Go to the people of iniquity,-(10)
قَومَ فِرعَونَ ۚ أَلا يَتَّقونَ(11)
"The people of the Pharaoh: will they not fear Allah?"(11)
قالَ رَبِّ إِنّى أَخافُ أَن يُكَذِّبونِ(12)
He said: "O my Lord! I do fear that they will charge me with falsehood:(12)
وَيَضيقُ صَدرى وَلا يَنطَلِقُ لِسانى فَأَرسِل إِلىٰ هٰرونَ(13)
"My breast will be straitened. And my speech may not go (smoothly): so send unto Aaron.(13)
وَلَهُم عَلَىَّ ذَنبٌ فَأَخافُ أَن يَقتُلونِ(14)
"And (further), they have a charge of crime against me; and I fear they may slay me."(14)
قالَ كَلّا ۖ فَاذهَبا بِـٔايٰتِنا ۖ إِنّا مَعَكُم مُستَمِعونَ(15)
Allah said: "By no means! proceed then, both of you, with Our Signs; We are with you, and will listen (to your call).(15)
فَأتِيا فِرعَونَ فَقولا إِنّا رَسولُ رَبِّ العٰلَمينَ(16)
"So go forth, both of you, to Pharaoh, and say: 'We have been sent by the Lord and Cherisher of the worlds;(16)
أَن أَرسِل مَعَنا بَنى إِسرٰءيلَ(17)
"'Send thou with us the Children of Israel.'"(17)
قالَ أَلَم نُرَبِّكَ فينا وَليدًا وَلَبِثتَ فينا مِن عُمُرِكَ سِنينَ(18)
(Pharaoh) said: "Did we not cherish thee as a child among us, and didst thou not stay in our midst many years of thy life?(18)
وَفَعَلتَ فَعلَتَكَ الَّتى فَعَلتَ وَأَنتَ مِنَ الكٰفِرينَ(19)
"And thou didst a deed of thine which (thou knowest) thou didst, and thou art an ungrateful (wretch)!"(19)
قالَ فَعَلتُها إِذًا وَأَنا۠ مِنَ الضّالّينَ(20)
Moses said: "I did it then, when I was in error.(20)
فَفَرَرتُ مِنكُم لَمّا خِفتُكُم فَوَهَبَ لى رَبّى حُكمًا وَجَعَلَنى مِنَ المُرسَلينَ(21)
"So I fled from you (all) when I feared you; but my Lord has (since) invested me with judgment (and wisdom) and appointed me as one of the messengers.(21)
وَتِلكَ نِعمَةٌ تَمُنُّها عَلَىَّ أَن عَبَّدتَ بَنى إِسرٰءيلَ(22)
"And this is the favour with which thou dost reproach me,- that thou hast enslaved the Children of Israel!"(22)
قالَ فِرعَونُ وَما رَبُّ العٰلَمينَ(23)
Pharaoh said: "And what is the 'Lord and Cherisher of the worlds'?"(23)
قالَ رَبُّ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ وَما بَينَهُما ۖ إِن كُنتُم موقِنينَ(24)
(Moses) said: "The Lord and Cherisher of the heavens and the earth, and all between,- if ye want to be quite sure."(24)
قالَ لِمَن حَولَهُ أَلا تَستَمِعونَ(25)
(Pharaoh) said to those around: "Did ye not listen (to what he says)?"(25)
قالَ رَبُّكُم وَرَبُّ ءابائِكُمُ الأَوَّلينَ(26)
(Moses) said: "Your Lord and the Lord of your fathers from the beginning!"(26)
قالَ إِنَّ رَسولَكُمُ الَّذى أُرسِلَ إِلَيكُم لَمَجنونٌ(27)
(Pharaoh) said: "Truly your messenger who has been sent to you is a veritable madman!"(27)
قالَ رَبُّ المَشرِقِ وَالمَغرِبِ وَما بَينَهُما ۖ إِن كُنتُم تَعقِلونَ(28)
(Moses) said: "Lord of the East and the West, and all between! if ye only had sense!"(28)
قالَ لَئِنِ اتَّخَذتَ إِلٰهًا غَيرى لَأَجعَلَنَّكَ مِنَ المَسجونينَ(29)
(Pharaoh) said: "If thou dost put forward any god other than me, I will certainly put thee in prison!"(29)
قالَ أَوَلَو جِئتُكَ بِشَيءٍ مُبينٍ(30)
(Moses) said: "Even if I showed you something clear (and) convincing?"(30)
قالَ فَأتِ بِهِ إِن كُنتَ مِنَ الصّٰدِقينَ(31)
(Pharaoh) said: "Show it then, if thou tellest the truth!"(31)
فَأَلقىٰ عَصاهُ فَإِذا هِىَ ثُعبانٌ مُبينٌ(32)
So (Moses) threw his rod, and behold, it was a serpent, plain (for all to see)!(32)
وَنَزَعَ يَدَهُ فَإِذا هِىَ بَيضاءُ لِلنّٰظِرينَ(33)
And he drew out his hand, and behold, it was white to all beholders!(33)
قالَ لِلمَلَإِ حَولَهُ إِنَّ هٰذا لَسٰحِرٌ عَليمٌ(34)
(Pharaoh) said to the Chiefs around him: "This is indeed a sorcerer well-versed:(34)
يُريدُ أَن يُخرِجَكُم مِن أَرضِكُم بِسِحرِهِ فَماذا تَأمُرونَ(35)
"His plan is to get you out of your land by his sorcery; then what is it ye counsel?"(35)
قالوا أَرجِه وَأَخاهُ وَابعَث فِى المَدائِنِ حٰشِرينَ(36)
They said: "Keep him and his brother in suspense (for a while), and dispatch to the Cities heralds to collect-(36)
يَأتوكَ بِكُلِّ سَحّارٍ عَليمٍ(37)
"And bring up to thee all (our) sorcerers well-versed."(37)
فَجُمِعَ السَّحَرَةُ لِميقٰتِ يَومٍ مَعلومٍ(38)
So the sorcerers were got together for the appointment of a day well-known,(38)
وَقيلَ لِلنّاسِ هَل أَنتُم مُجتَمِعونَ(39)
And the people were told: "Are ye (now) assembled?-(39)
لَعَلَّنا نَتَّبِعُ السَّحَرَةَ إِن كانوا هُمُ الغٰلِبينَ(40)
"That we may follow the sorcerers (in religion) if they win?"(40)
فَلَمّا جاءَ السَّحَرَةُ قالوا لِفِرعَونَ أَئِنَّ لَنا لَأَجرًا إِن كُنّا نَحنُ الغٰلِبينَ(41)
So when the sorcerers arrived, they said to Pharaoh: "Of course - shall we have a (suitable) reward if we win?(41)
قالَ نَعَم وَإِنَّكُم إِذًا لَمِنَ المُقَرَّبينَ(42)
He said: "Yea, (and more),- for ye shall in that case be (raised to posts) nearest (to my person)."(42)
قالَ لَهُم موسىٰ أَلقوا ما أَنتُم مُلقونَ(43)
Moses said to them: "Throw ye - that which ye are about to throw!"(43)
فَأَلقَوا حِبالَهُم وَعِصِيَّهُم وَقالوا بِعِزَّةِ فِرعَونَ إِنّا لَنَحنُ الغٰلِبونَ(44)
So they threw their ropes and their rods, and said: "By the might of Pharaoh, it is we who will certainly win!"(44)
فَأَلقىٰ موسىٰ عَصاهُ فَإِذا هِىَ تَلقَفُ ما يَأفِكونَ(45)
Then Moses threw his rod, when, behold, it straightway swallows up all the falsehoods which they fake!(45)
فَأُلقِىَ السَّحَرَةُ سٰجِدينَ(46)
Then did the sorcerers fall down, prostrate in adoration,(46)
قالوا ءامَنّا بِرَبِّ العٰلَمينَ(47)
Saying: "We believe in the Lord of the Worlds,(47)
رَبِّ موسىٰ وَهٰرونَ(48)
"The Lord of Moses and Aaron."(48)
قالَ ءامَنتُم لَهُ قَبلَ أَن ءاذَنَ لَكُم ۖ إِنَّهُ لَكَبيرُكُمُ الَّذى عَلَّمَكُمُ السِّحرَ فَلَسَوفَ تَعلَمونَ ۚ لَأُقَطِّعَنَّ أَيدِيَكُم وَأَرجُلَكُم مِن خِلٰفٍ وَلَأُصَلِّبَنَّكُم أَجمَعينَ(49)
Said (Pharaoh): "Believe ye in Him before I give you permission? surely he is your leader, who has taught you sorcery! but soon shall ye know! Be sure I will cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides, and I will cause you all to die on the cross!"(49)
قالوا لا ضَيرَ ۖ إِنّا إِلىٰ رَبِّنا مُنقَلِبونَ(50)
They said: "No matter! for us, we shall but return to our Lord!(50)
إِنّا نَطمَعُ أَن يَغفِرَ لَنا رَبُّنا خَطٰيٰنا أَن كُنّا أَوَّلَ المُؤمِنينَ(51)
"Only, our desire is that our Lord will forgive us our faults, that we may become foremost among the believers!"(51)
۞ وَأَوحَينا إِلىٰ موسىٰ أَن أَسرِ بِعِبادى إِنَّكُم مُتَّبَعونَ(52)
By inspiration we told Moses: "Travel by night with my servants; for surely ye shall be pursued."(52)
فَأَرسَلَ فِرعَونُ فِى المَدائِنِ حٰشِرينَ(53)
Then Pharaoh sent heralds to (all) the Cities,(53)
إِنَّ هٰؤُلاءِ لَشِرذِمَةٌ قَليلونَ(54)
(Saying): "These (Israelites) are but a small band,(54)
وَإِنَّهُم لَنا لَغائِظونَ(55)
"And they are raging furiously against us;(55)
وَإِنّا لَجَميعٌ حٰذِرونَ(56)
"But we are a multitude amply fore-warned."(56)
فَأَخرَجنٰهُم مِن جَنّٰتٍ وَعُيونٍ(57)
So We expelled them from gardens, springs,(57)
وَكُنوزٍ وَمَقامٍ كَريمٍ(58)
Treasures, and every kind of honourable position;(58)
كَذٰلِكَ وَأَورَثنٰها بَنى إِسرٰءيلَ(59)
Thus it was, but We made the Children of Israel inheritors of such things.(59)
فَأَتبَعوهُم مُشرِقينَ(60)
So they pursued them at sunrise.(60)
فَلَمّا تَرٰءَا الجَمعانِ قالَ أَصحٰبُ موسىٰ إِنّا لَمُدرَكونَ(61)
And when the two bodies saw each other, the people of Moses said: "We are sure to be overtaken."(61)
قالَ كَلّا ۖ إِنَّ مَعِىَ رَبّى سَيَهدينِ(62)
(Moses) said: "By no means! my Lord is with me! Soon will He guide me!"(62)
فَأَوحَينا إِلىٰ موسىٰ أَنِ اضرِب بِعَصاكَ البَحرَ ۖ فَانفَلَقَ فَكانَ كُلُّ فِرقٍ كَالطَّودِ العَظيمِ(63)
Then We told Moses by inspiration: "Strike the sea with thy rod." So it divided, and each separate part became like the huge, firm mass of a mountain.(63)
وَأَزلَفنا ثَمَّ الءاخَرينَ(64)
And We made the other party approach thither.(64)
وَأَنجَينا موسىٰ وَمَن مَعَهُ أَجمَعينَ(65)
We delivered Moses and all who were with him;(65)
ثُمَّ أَغرَقنَا الءاخَرينَ(66)
But We drowned the others.(66)
إِنَّ فى ذٰلِكَ لَءايَةً ۖ وَما كانَ أَكثَرُهُم مُؤمِنينَ(67)
Verily in this is a Sign: but most of them do not believe.(67)
وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ العَزيزُ الرَّحيمُ(68)
And verily thy Lord is He, the Exalted in Might, Most Merciful.(68)
وَاتلُ عَلَيهِم نَبَأَ إِبرٰهيمَ(69)
And rehearse to them (something of) Abraham's story.(69)
إِذ قالَ لِأَبيهِ وَقَومِهِ ما تَعبُدونَ(70)
Behold, he said to his father and his people: "What worship ye?"(70)
قالوا نَعبُدُ أَصنامًا فَنَظَلُّ لَها عٰكِفينَ(71)
They said: "We worship idols, and we remain constantly in attendance on them."(71)
قالَ هَل يَسمَعونَكُم إِذ تَدعونَ(72)
He said: "Do they listen to you when ye call (on them)?"(72)
أَو يَنفَعونَكُم أَو يَضُرّونَ(73)
"Or do you good or harm?"(73)
قالوا بَل وَجَدنا ءاباءَنا كَذٰلِكَ يَفعَلونَ(74)
They said: "Nay, but we found our fathers doing thus (what we do)."(74)
قالَ أَفَرَءَيتُم ما كُنتُم تَعبُدونَ(75)
He said: "Do ye then see whom ye have been worshipping,-(75)
أَنتُم وَءاباؤُكُمُ الأَقدَمونَ(76)
"Ye and your fathers before you?-(76)
فَإِنَّهُم عَدُوٌّ لى إِلّا رَبَّ العٰلَمينَ(77)
"For they are enemies to me; not so the Lord and Cherisher of the Worlds;(77)
الَّذى خَلَقَنى فَهُوَ يَهدينِ(78)
"Who created me, and it is He Who guides me;(78)
وَالَّذى هُوَ يُطعِمُنى وَيَسقينِ(79)

وَإِذا مَرِضتُ فَهُوَ يَشفينِ(80)

وَالَّذى أَطمَعُ أَن يَغفِرَ لى خَطيـَٔتى يَومَ الدّينِ(82)
"And who, I hope, will forgive me my faults on the day of Judgment.(82)
رَبِّ هَب لى حُكمًا وَأَلحِقنى بِالصّٰلِحينَ(83)
"O my Lord! bestow wisdom on me, and join me with the righteous;(83)
وَاجعَل لى لِسانَ صِدقٍ فِى الءاخِرينَ(84)
"Grant me honourable mention on the tongue of truth among the latest (generations);(84)
وَاجعَلنى مِن وَرَثَةِ جَنَّةِ النَّعيمِ(85)
"Make me one of the inheritors of the Garden of Bliss;(85)
وَاغفِر لِأَبى إِنَّهُ كانَ مِنَ الضّالّينَ(86)
"Forgive my father, for that he is among those astray;(86)
وَلا تُخزِنى يَومَ يُبعَثونَ(87)

يَومَ لا يَنفَعُ مالٌ وَلا بَنونَ(88)

إِلّا مَن أَتَى اللَّهَ بِقَلبٍ سَليمٍ(89)
"But only he (will prosper) that brings to Allah a sound heart;(89)
وَأُزلِفَتِ الجَنَّةُ لِلمُتَّقينَ(90)
"To the righteous, the Garden will be brought near,(90)
وَبُرِّزَتِ الجَحيمُ لِلغاوينَ(91)
"And to those straying in Evil, the Fire will be placed in full view;(91)
وَقيلَ لَهُم أَينَ ما كُنتُم تَعبُدونَ(92)
"And it shall be said to them: 'Where are the (gods) ye worshipped-(92)
مِن دونِ اللَّهِ هَل يَنصُرونَكُم أَو يَنتَصِرونَ(93)
"'Besides Allah? Can they help you or help themselves?'(93)
فَكُبكِبوا فيها هُم وَالغاوۥنَ(94)
"Then they will be thrown headlong into the (Fire),- they and those straying in Evil,(94)
وَجُنودُ إِبليسَ أَجمَعونَ(95)
"And the whole hosts of Iblis together.(95)
قالوا وَهُم فيها يَختَصِمونَ(96)
"They will say there in their mutual bickerings:(96)
تَاللَّهِ إِن كُنّا لَفى ضَلٰلٍ مُبينٍ(97)
"'By Allah, we were truly in an error manifest,(97)
إِذ نُسَوّيكُم بِرَبِّ العٰلَمينَ(98)
"'When we held you as equals with the Lord of the Worlds;(98)

إِنَّ فى ذٰلِكَ لَءايَةً ۖ وَما كانَ أَكثَرُهُم مُؤمِنينَ(103)

يُلقونَ السَّمعَ وَأَكثَرُهُم كٰذِبونَ(223)

وَالشُّعَراءُ يَتَّبِعُهُمُ الغاوۥنَ(224)
And the Poets,- It is those straying in Evil, who follow them:(224)
أَلَم تَرَ أَنَّهُم فى كُلِّ وادٍ يَهيمونَ(225)
Seest thou not that they wander distracted in every valley?-(225)
وَأَنَّهُم يَقولونَ ما لا يَفعَلونَ(226)
And that they say what they practise not?-(226)
إِلَّا الَّذينَ ءامَنوا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ وَذَكَرُوا اللَّهَ كَثيرًا وَانتَصَروا مِن بَعدِ ما ظُلِموا ۗ وَسَيَعلَمُ الَّذينَ ظَلَموا أَىَّ مُنقَلَبٍ يَنقَلِبونَ(227)
Except those who believe, work righteousness, engage much in the remembrance of Allah, and defend themselves only after they are unjustly attacked. And soon will the unjust assailants know what vicissitudes their affairs will take!(227)
