بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ طه(1)
Ta-Ha.* (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him) (Alphabets of the Arabic language – Allah and to whomever He reveals know their precise meanings.)(1)
ما أَنزَلنا عَلَيكَ القُرءانَ لِتَشقىٰ(2)
We have not sent down this Qur’an upon you (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him) for you to fall into hardship! (Either because he used to pray at length during the night or because he was distressed due to the disbelievers not accepting faith.)(2)
إِلّا تَذكِرَةً لِمَن يَخشىٰ(3)
Except as a reminder for one who fears.(3)
تَنزيلًا مِمَّن خَلَقَ الأَرضَ وَالسَّمٰوٰتِ العُلَى(4)
Sent down by One Who created the earth and the lofty heavens.(4)
الرَّحمٰنُ عَلَى العَرشِ استَوىٰ(5)
The Most Gracious Who, befitting His Majesty, took to the Throne (of control).(5)
لَهُ ما فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَما فِى الأَرضِ وَما بَينَهُما وَما تَحتَ الثَّرىٰ(6)
To Him only belongs all whatever is in the heavens and all whatever is in the earth, and all whatever is between them, and all whatever is beneath this wet soil.(6)
وَإِن تَجهَر بِالقَولِ فَإِنَّهُ يَعلَمُ السِّرَّ وَأَخفَى(7)
And if you speak aloud – so He surely knows the secret and that which is more concealed.(7)
اللَّهُ لا إِلٰهَ إِلّا هُوَ ۖ لَهُ الأَسماءُ الحُسنىٰ(8)
Allah – there is no worship except for Him; His only are the best names.(8)
وَهَل أَتىٰكَ حَديثُ موسىٰ(9)
And did the news of Moosa reach you?(9)
إِذ رَءا نارًا فَقالَ لِأَهلِهِ امكُثوا إِنّى ءانَستُ نارًا لَعَلّى ءاتيكُم مِنها بِقَبَسٍ أَو أَجِدُ عَلَى النّارِ هُدًى(10)
When he saw a fire and said to his wife, “Wait – I have seen a fire – perhaps I may bring you an ember from it or find a way upon the fire.”(10)
فَلَمّا أَتىٰها نودِىَ يٰموسىٰ(11)
So when he came near the fire, it was announced, “O Moosa!”(11)
إِنّى أَنا۠ رَبُّكَ فَاخلَع نَعلَيكَ ۖ إِنَّكَ بِالوادِ المُقَدَّسِ طُوًى(12)
“Indeed I am your Lord, therefore take off your shoes; indeed you are in the holy valley of Tuwa!”(12)
وَأَنَا اختَرتُكَ فَاستَمِع لِما يوحىٰ(13)
“And I have chosen you, therefore listen carefully to what is divinely revealed to you.”(13)
إِنَّنى أَنَا اللَّهُ لا إِلٰهَ إِلّا أَنا۠ فَاعبُدنى وَأَقِمِ الصَّلوٰةَ لِذِكرى(14)
“Indeed it is Me, Allah – there is no God except I – therefore worship Me and keep the prayer established for My remembrance.”(14)
إِنَّ السّاعَةَ ءاتِيَةٌ أَكادُ أُخفيها لِتُجزىٰ كُلُّ نَفسٍ بِما تَسعىٰ(15)
“The Last Day will surely come – it was close that I hide it from all – in order that every soul may get the reward of its effort.” (He revealed it to His Prophets, so that people may fear and get ready. The exact time is not revealed to the people.)(15)
فَلا يَصُدَّنَّكَ عَنها مَن لا يُؤمِنُ بِها وَاتَّبَعَ هَوىٰهُ فَتَردىٰ(16)
“Therefore never let one, who does not accept faith in it and follows his own desires, prevent you from accepting this, so then you become ruined.”(16)
وَما تِلكَ بِيَمينِكَ يٰموسىٰ(17)
“And what is this in your right hand, O Moosa?”(17)
قالَ هِىَ عَصاىَ أَتَوَكَّؤُا۟ عَلَيها وَأَهُشُّ بِها عَلىٰ غَنَمى وَلِىَ فيها مَـٔارِبُ أُخرىٰ(18)
He said, “This is my staff; I support myself on it, and I knock down leaves for my sheep with it, and there are other uses for me in it.”(18)
قالَ أَلقِها يٰموسىٰ(19)
He said, “Put it down, O Moosa!(19)
فَأَلقىٰها فَإِذا هِىَ حَيَّةٌ تَسعىٰ(20)
So Moosa put it down – thereupon it became a fast moving serpent.(20)
قالَ خُذها وَلا تَخَف ۖ سَنُعيدُها سيرَتَهَا الأولىٰ(21)
He said, “Pick it up and do not fear; We shall restore it to its former state.”(21)
وَاضمُم يَدَكَ إِلىٰ جَناحِكَ تَخرُج بَيضاءَ مِن غَيرِ سوءٍ ءايَةً أُخرىٰ(22)
“And put your hand inside your armpit – it will come out shining white, not due to any illness – one more sign.”(22)
لِنُرِيَكَ مِن ءايٰتِنَا الكُبرَى(23)
“In order that We may show you Our great signs.”(23)
اذهَب إِلىٰ فِرعَونَ إِنَّهُ طَغىٰ(24)
“Go to Firaun, he has rebelled.”(24)
قالَ رَبِّ اشرَح لى صَدرى(25)
Said Moosa, “My Lord, open up my breast for me.”(25)
وَيَسِّر لى أَمرى(26)
“And make my task easy for me.”(26)
وَاحلُل عُقدَةً مِن لِسانى(27)
“And untie the knot of my tongue.”(27)
يَفقَهوا قَولى(28)
“In order that they may understand my speech.”(28)
وَاجعَل لى وَزيرًا مِن أَهلى(29)
“And appoint for me a viceroy from among my family.”(29)
هٰرونَ أَخِى(30)
“That is Haroon, my brother.”(30)
اشدُد بِهِ أَزرى(31)
“Back me up with him.”(31)
وَأَشرِكهُ فى أَمرى(32)
“And make him a partner in my task.”(32)
كَى نُسَبِّحَكَ كَثيرًا(33)
“In order that we may profusely proclaim Your Purity.”(33)
وَنَذكُرَكَ كَثيرًا(34)
“And profusely remember You.”(34)
إِنَّكَ كُنتَ بِنا بَصيرًا(35)
“Indeed You see us.”(35)
قالَ قَد أوتيتَ سُؤلَكَ يٰموسىٰ(36)
He said, “O Moosa, you have been granted your prayer.”(36)
وَلَقَد مَنَنّا عَلَيكَ مَرَّةً أُخرىٰ(37)
“And indeed We had bestowed upon you a favour one more time.”(37)
إِذ أَوحَينا إِلىٰ أُمِّكَ ما يوحىٰ(38)
“When We inspired in your mother’s heart whatever was to be inspired.”(38)
أَنِ اقذِفيهِ فِى التّابوتِ فَاقذِفيهِ فِى اليَمِّ فَليُلقِهِ اليَمُّ بِالسّاحِلِ يَأخُذهُ عَدُوٌّ لى وَعَدُوٌّ لَهُ ۚ وَأَلقَيتُ عَلَيكَ مَحَبَّةً مِنّى وَلِتُصنَعَ عَلىٰ عَينى(39)
“That, ‘Put him into a chest and cast it into the river, so the river shall deposit it on to a shore – therefore one who is an enemy to Me and you, shall pick him up’; and I bestowed upon you love from Myself; and for you to be brought up in My sight.”(39)
إِذ تَمشى أُختُكَ فَتَقولُ هَل أَدُلُّكُم عَلىٰ مَن يَكفُلُهُ ۖ فَرَجَعنٰكَ إِلىٰ أُمِّكَ كَى تَقَرَّ عَينُها وَلا تَحزَنَ ۚ وَقَتَلتَ نَفسًا فَنَجَّينٰكَ مِنَ الغَمِّ وَفَتَنّٰكَ فُتونًا ۚ فَلَبِثتَ سِنينَ فى أَهلِ مَديَنَ ثُمَّ جِئتَ عَلىٰ قَدَرٍ يٰموسىٰ(40)
“When your sister went, then said, ‘Shall I show you the people who may nurse him?’ And We brought you back to your mother in order to soothe her eyes and that she may not grieve; and you killed a man, so We freed you from sorrow, and tested you to the maximum; you therefore stayed for several years among the people of Madyan; then you came (here) at an appointed time, O Moosa.”(40)
وَاصطَنَعتُكَ لِنَفسِى(41)
“And I created you especially for Myself.”(41)
اذهَب أَنتَ وَأَخوكَ بِـٔايٰتى وَلا تَنِيا فى ذِكرِى(42)
“You and your brother, both go with My signs, and do not slacken in My remembrance.”(42)
اذهَبا إِلىٰ فِرعَونَ إِنَّهُ طَغىٰ(43)
“Both of you go to Firaun; he has indeed rebelled.”(43)
فَقولا لَهُ قَولًا لَيِّنًا لَعَلَّهُ يَتَذَكَّرُ أَو يَخشىٰ(44)
“And speak to him courteously, that perhaps he may ponder or have some fear.”(44)
قالا رَبَّنا إِنَّنا نَخافُ أَن يَفرُطَ عَلَينا أَو أَن يَطغىٰ(45)
They both submitted, “Our Lord – indeed we fear that he may oppress us or deal mischievously.”(45)
قالَ لا تَخافا ۖ إِنَّنى مَعَكُما أَسمَعُ وَأَرىٰ(46)
He said, “Do not fear – I am with you, All Hearing and All Seeing.”(46)
فَأتِياهُ فَقولا إِنّا رَسولا رَبِّكَ فَأَرسِل مَعَنا بَنى إِسرٰءيلَ وَلا تُعَذِّبهُم ۖ قَد جِئنٰكَ بِـٔايَةٍ مِن رَبِّكَ ۖ وَالسَّلٰمُ عَلىٰ مَنِ اتَّبَعَ الهُدىٰ(47)
“Therefore go to him and say, ‘We are the sent ones of your Lord, therefore let the Descendants of Israel go with us, and do not trouble them; we have indeed brought to you a sign from your Lord; and peace be upon him who follows the guidance.’(47)
إِنّا قَد أوحِىَ إِلَينا أَنَّ العَذابَ عَلىٰ مَن كَذَّبَ وَتَوَلّىٰ(48)
‘It has indeed been revealed to us that the punishment is upon the one who denies and turns away.’”(48)
قالَ فَمَن رَبُّكُما يٰموسىٰ(49)
Said Firaun, “So who is the Lord of you both, O Moosa?”(49)
قالَ رَبُّنَا الَّذى أَعطىٰ كُلَّ شَيءٍ خَلقَهُ ثُمَّ هَدىٰ(50)
He said, “Our Lord is One Who gave everything its proper shape, then showed the path.”(50)
قالَ فَما بالُ القُرونِ الأولىٰ(51)
Said Firaun, “What is the state of the former generations?”(51)
قالَ عِلمُها عِندَ رَبّى فى كِتٰبٍ ۖ لا يَضِلُّ رَبّى وَلا يَنسَى(52)
He said, “Their knowledge is with my Lord, (recorded) in a Book; my Lord neither strays nor forgets.”(52)
الَّذى جَعَلَ لَكُمُ الأَرضَ مَهدًا وَسَلَكَ لَكُم فيها سُبُلًا وَأَنزَلَ مِنَ السَّماءِ ماءً فَأَخرَجنا بِهِ أَزوٰجًا مِن نَباتٍ شَتّىٰ(53)
The One Who has made the earth a bed for you and kept operative roads for you in it and sent down water from the sky; so with it We produced different pairs of vegetation.(53)
كُلوا وَارعَوا أَنعٰمَكُم ۗ إِنَّ فى ذٰلِكَ لَءايٰتٍ لِأُولِى النُّهىٰ(54)
Eat, and graze your cattle; indeed in this are signs for people of intellect.(54)
۞ مِنها خَلَقنٰكُم وَفيها نُعيدُكُم وَمِنها نُخرِجُكُم تارَةً أُخرىٰ(55)
From the earth We have created you, and to it We shall return you, and from it We shall raise you again.(55)
وَلَقَد أَرَينٰهُ ءايٰتِنا كُلَّها فَكَذَّبَ وَأَبىٰ(56)
And indeed We showed him all Our signs – so he denied them and did not accept.(56)
قالَ أَجِئتَنا لِتُخرِجَنا مِن أَرضِنا بِسِحرِكَ يٰموسىٰ(57)
He said, “Have you come to us in order to expel us from our land by your magic, O Moosa?”(57)
فَلَنَأتِيَنَّكَ بِسِحرٍ مِثلِهِ فَاجعَل بَينَنا وَبَينَكَ مَوعِدًا لا نُخلِفُهُ نَحنُ وَلا أَنتَ مَكانًا سُوًى(58)
“So we will also produce before you a similar magic, therefore set up an agreed time between us and you, from which neither we nor you shall turn away, at a level place.”(58)
قالَ مَوعِدُكُم يَومُ الزّينَةِ وَأَن يُحشَرَ النّاسُ ضُحًى(59)
Said Moosa, “Your meeting is the day of the festival, and that the people be assembled at late morning.”(59)
فَتَوَلّىٰ فِرعَونُ فَجَمَعَ كَيدَهُ ثُمَّ أَتىٰ(60)
So Firaun went away and gathered his schemes,* then came. (* 72000 magicians and their materials.)(60)
قالَ لَهُم موسىٰ وَيلَكُم لا تَفتَروا عَلَى اللَّهِ كَذِبًا فَيُسحِتَكُم بِعَذابٍ ۖ وَقَد خابَ مَنِ افتَرىٰ(61)
Moosa said to them, “Ruin is to you – do not fabricate a lie against Allah, that He may destroy you by a punishment; and indeed one who fabricates lies has failed.”(61)
فَتَنٰزَعوا أَمرَهُم بَينَهُم وَأَسَرُّوا النَّجوىٰ(62)
So they differed with one another in their task, and secretly conferred.(62)
قالوا إِن هٰذٰنِ لَسٰحِرٰنِ يُريدانِ أَن يُخرِجاكُم مِن أَرضِكُم بِسِحرِهِما وَيَذهَبا بِطَريقَتِكُمُ المُثلىٰ(63)
They said, “Undoubtedly these two are magicians for sure, who wish to expel you from your land by the strength of their magic, and destroy your exemplary religion!”(63)
فَأَجمِعوا كَيدَكُم ثُمَّ ائتوا صَفًّا ۚ وَقَد أَفلَحَ اليَومَ مَنِ استَعلىٰ(64)
“Therefore strengthen your scheme, and come forth in rows; indeed whoever dominates this day has succeeded.”(64)
قالوا يٰموسىٰ إِمّا أَن تُلقِىَ وَإِمّا أَن نَكونَ أَوَّلَ مَن أَلقىٰ(65)
They said, “O Moosa, either you throw first – or shall we throw first?”(65)
قالَ بَل أَلقوا ۖ فَإِذا حِبالُهُم وَعِصِيُّهُم يُخَيَّلُ إِلَيهِ مِن سِحرِهِم أَنَّها تَسعىٰ(66)
He said, “Rather, you may throw”; thereupon their cords and their staves, by the strength of their magic, appeared to him as if they were (serpents) moving fast.(66)
فَأَوجَسَ فى نَفسِهِ خيفَةً موسىٰ(67)
And Moosa sensed fear in his heart.(67)
قُلنا لا تَخَف إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الأَعلىٰ(68)
We said, “Do not fear – it is you who is dominant.”(68)
وَأَلقِ ما فى يَمينِكَ تَلقَف ما صَنَعوا ۖ إِنَّما صَنَعوا كَيدُ سٰحِرٍ ۖ وَلا يُفلِحُ السّاحِرُ حَيثُ أَتىٰ(69)
“And cast down which is in your right hand – it will devour all that they have fabricated; what they have made is only a magician’s deceit; and a magician is never successful, wherever he comes.”(69)
فَأُلقِىَ السَّحَرَةُ سُجَّدًا قالوا ءامَنّا بِرَبِّ هٰرونَ وَموسىٰ(70)
Therefore all the magicians were thrown down prostrate – they said, “We accept faith in the One Who is the Lord of Haroon and Moosa.”(70)
قالَ ءامَنتُم لَهُ قَبلَ أَن ءاذَنَ لَكُم ۖ إِنَّهُ لَكَبيرُكُمُ الَّذى عَلَّمَكُمُ السِّحرَ ۖ فَلَأُقَطِّعَنَّ أَيدِيَكُم وَأَرجُلَكُم مِن خِلٰفٍ وَلَأُصَلِّبَنَّكُم فى جُذوعِ النَّخلِ وَلَتَعلَمُنَّ أَيُّنا أَشَدُّ عَذابًا وَأَبقىٰ(71)
Said Firaun, “You accepted faith in him before I permitted you! He is indeed your leader who taught you magic; I therefore swear, I will cut off your hands and your legs from alternate sides, and crucify you on the trunks of palm-trees, and you will surely come to know among us two, whose punishment is more severe and more lasting.”(71)
قالوا لَن نُؤثِرَكَ عَلىٰ ما جاءَنا مِنَ البَيِّنٰتِ وَالَّذى فَطَرَنا ۖ فَاقضِ ما أَنتَ قاضٍ ۖ إِنَّما تَقضى هٰذِهِ الحَيوٰةَ الدُّنيا(72)
They said, “We shall never prefer you above the clear proofs that have come to us from the One Who has created us – therefore carry out what you want to; only in the life of this world will you be able to!”(72)
إِنّا ءامَنّا بِرَبِّنا لِيَغفِرَ لَنا خَطٰيٰنا وَما أَكرَهتَنا عَلَيهِ مِنَ السِّحرِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ خَيرٌ وَأَبقىٰ(73)
“Indeed we have accepted faith in our Lord, so that He may forgive us our sins and the magic which you forced us to perform; and Allah is Better, and the Most Lasting.”(73)
إِنَّهُ مَن يَأتِ رَبَّهُ مُجرِمًا فَإِنَّ لَهُ جَهَنَّمَ لا يَموتُ فيها وَلا يَحيىٰ(74)
Indeed the one who comes guilty to his Lord – so undoubtedly for him is hell; neither dying nor living in it.(74)
وَمَن يَأتِهِ مُؤمِنًا قَد عَمِلَ الصّٰلِحٰتِ فَأُولٰئِكَ لَهُمُ الدَّرَجٰتُ العُلىٰ(75)
And the one who presents himself as a believer before Him, having done good deeds – so for them are the high ranks.(75)
جَنّٰتُ عَدنٍ تَجرى مِن تَحتِهَا الأَنهٰرُ خٰلِدينَ فيها ۚ وَذٰلِكَ جَزاءُ مَن تَزَكّىٰ(76)
Everlasting Gardens of Eden beneath which rivers flow, abiding in them for ever; and this is the reward of one who became pure.(76)
وَلَقَد أَوحَينا إِلىٰ موسىٰ أَن أَسرِ بِعِبادى فَاضرِب لَهُم طَريقًا فِى البَحرِ يَبَسًا لا تَخٰفُ دَرَكًا وَلا تَخشىٰ(77)
And We divinely inspired Moosa that, “Journey with My bondmen in a part of the night and strike a dry path in the sea for them, you shall have no fear of Firaun getting to you, nor any danger.”(77)
فَأَتبَعَهُم فِرعَونُ بِجُنودِهِ فَغَشِيَهُم مِنَ اليَمِّ ما غَشِيَهُم(78)
So Firaun went after them with his army – therefore the sea enveloped them, the way it did.(78)
وَأَضَلَّ فِرعَونُ قَومَهُ وَما هَدىٰ(79)
And Firaun led his people astray, and did not guide them.(79)
يٰبَنى إِسرٰءيلَ قَد أَنجَينٰكُم مِن عَدُوِّكُم وَوٰعَدنٰكُم جانِبَ الطّورِ الأَيمَنَ وَنَزَّلنا عَلَيكُمُ المَنَّ وَالسَّلوىٰ(80)
O Descendants of Israel, indeed We rescued you from your enemy, and We made a covenant with you on the right side of Mount Tur, and sent down Manna and Salwa upon you.(80)
كُلوا مِن طَيِّبٰتِ ما رَزَقنٰكُم وَلا تَطغَوا فيهِ فَيَحِلَّ عَلَيكُم غَضَبى ۖ وَمَن يَحلِل عَلَيهِ غَضَبى فَقَد هَوىٰ(81)
“Eat the good clean things We have provided you, and do not exceed the limits in respect of it causing My wrath to descend upon you; and indeed the one on whom My wrath descended, has fallen.”(81)
وَإِنّى لَغَفّارٌ لِمَن تابَ وَءامَنَ وَعَمِلَ صٰلِحًا ثُمَّ اهتَدىٰ(82)
And indeed I am Most Oft Forgiving for him who repented and accepted faith and did good deeds, and then remained upon guidance.(82)
۞ وَما أَعجَلَكَ عَن قَومِكَ يٰموسىٰ(83)
“And why did you come in haste ahead of your people, O Moosa?”(83)
قالَ هُم أُولاءِ عَلىٰ أَثَرى وَعَجِلتُ إِلَيكَ رَبِّ لِتَرضىٰ(84)
He submitted, “They are here, just behind me – and O my Lord, I hastened towards You, in order to please You.”(84)
قالَ فَإِنّا قَد فَتَنّا قَومَكَ مِن بَعدِكَ وَأَضَلَّهُمُ السّامِرِىُّ(85)
He said, “We have therefore tried your people after you came, and Samri has led them astray.”(85)
فَرَجَعَ موسىٰ إِلىٰ قَومِهِ غَضبٰنَ أَسِفًا ۚ قالَ يٰقَومِ أَلَم يَعِدكُم رَبُّكُم وَعدًا حَسَنًا ۚ أَفَطالَ عَلَيكُمُ العَهدُ أَم أَرَدتُم أَن يَحِلَّ عَلَيكُم غَضَبٌ مِن رَبِّكُم فَأَخلَفتُم مَوعِدى(86)
So Moosa turned back to his people, angry and grieving; he said, “O my people, had not your Lord given you a good promise? Did a long time pass away for you, or did you wish that your Lord’s wrath come upon you, therefore you broke your promise with me?”(86)
قالوا ما أَخلَفنا مَوعِدَكَ بِمَلكِنا وَلٰكِنّا حُمِّلنا أَوزارًا مِن زينَةِ القَومِ فَقَذَفنٰها فَكَذٰلِكَ أَلقَى السّامِرِىُّ(87)
They said, “We did not renege on our promise to you on our own will, but we were made to carry the burdens of ornaments of the people, so we cast them – and similarly did Samri cast.”(87)
فَأَخرَجَ لَهُم عِجلًا جَسَدًا لَهُ خُوارٌ فَقالوا هٰذا إِلٰهُكُم وَإِلٰهُ موسىٰ فَنَسِىَ(88)
He therefore made a calf for them – a lifeless body, making sounds like a cow – so they said, “This is your God and the God of Moosa; whereas Moosa has forgotten.”(88)
أَفَلا يَرَونَ أَلّا يَرجِعُ إِلَيهِم قَولًا وَلا يَملِكُ لَهُم ضَرًّا وَلا نَفعًا(89)
So do they not see that it does not answer to any of their speech? And has no power to cause them any harm or benefit?(89)
وَلَقَد قالَ لَهُم هٰرونُ مِن قَبلُ يٰقَومِ إِنَّما فُتِنتُم بِهِ ۖ وَإِنَّ رَبَّكُمُ الرَّحمٰنُ فَاتَّبِعونى وَأَطيعوا أَمرى(90)
And undoubtedly Haroon had told them before it that, “O my people – you have needlessly fallen into trial because of this; and indeed your Lord is the Most Gracious, therefore follow me and obey my command.”(90)
قالوا لَن نَبرَحَ عَلَيهِ عٰكِفينَ حَتّىٰ يَرجِعَ إِلَينا موسىٰ(91)
They said, “We will continue to squat* before it, till Moosa returns to us.” (* Continue worshipping it.)(91)
قالَ يٰهٰرونُ ما مَنَعَكَ إِذ رَأَيتَهُم ضَلّوا(92)
Said Moosa, “O Haroon – what prevented you when you saw them going astray?”(92)
أَلّا تَتَّبِعَنِ ۖ أَفَعَصَيتَ أَمرى(93)
“That you did not come after me? So did you disobey my order?”(93)
قالَ يَبنَؤُمَّ لا تَأخُذ بِلِحيَتى وَلا بِرَأسى ۖ إِنّى خَشيتُ أَن تَقولَ فَرَّقتَ بَينَ بَنى إِسرٰءيلَ وَلَم تَرقُب قَولى(94)
He said, “O son of my mother, do not clutch my beard nor the hair on my head; I feared that you may say, ‘You have caused a division among the Descendants of Israel and did not wait for my advice.’”(94)
قالَ فَما خَطبُكَ يٰسٰمِرِىُّ(95)
Said Moosa, “And what is your explanation, O Samri?”(95)
قالَ بَصُرتُ بِما لَم يَبصُروا بِهِ فَقَبَضتُ قَبضَةً مِن أَثَرِ الرَّسولِ فَنَبَذتُها وَكَذٰلِكَ سَوَّلَت لى نَفسى(96)
He said, “I witnessed what the people did not witness – I therefore took a handful from the tracks* of the angel, then threw it** – and this is what seemed pleasing to my soul.” (* The marks left behind by the mount of Angel Jibreel. ** Into the mouth of the calf.)(96)
قالَ فَاذهَب فَإِنَّ لَكَ فِى الحَيوٰةِ أَن تَقولَ لا مِساسَ ۖ وَإِنَّ لَكَ مَوعِدًا لَن تُخلَفَهُ ۖ وَانظُر إِلىٰ إِلٰهِكَ الَّذى ظَلتَ عَلَيهِ عاكِفًا ۖ لَنُحَرِّقَنَّهُ ثُمَّ لَنَنسِفَنَّهُ فِى اليَمِّ نَسفًا(97)
Said Moosa, “Therefore go away, for in this life your punishment is that you exclaim ‘Do not touch!’* And indeed for you is a time appointed, which you cannot break; and look at your deity, in front of which you remained squatting the whole day; we swear we will surely burn it and, smashing it into bits, discharge it into the river.” (* He was cursed with a disease.)(97)
إِنَّما إِلٰهُكُمُ اللَّهُ الَّذى لا إِلٰهَ إِلّا هُوَ ۚ وَسِعَ كُلَّ شَيءٍ عِلمًا(98)
“Your God is only Allah – other than for Whom there is no worship; His knowledge encompasses all things.”(98)
كَذٰلِكَ نَقُصُّ عَلَيكَ مِن أَنباءِ ما قَد سَبَقَ ۚ وَقَد ءاتَينٰكَ مِن لَدُنّا ذِكرًا(99)
This is how We relate the former tidings to you (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him); and We have given you a Remembrance* from Ourselves. (*The Holy Qur’an.)(99)
مَن أَعرَضَ عَنهُ فَإِنَّهُ يَحمِلُ يَومَ القِيٰمَةِ وِزرًا(100)
Whoever turns away from it, will bear a burden on the Day of Resurrection.(100)
خٰلِدينَ فيهِ ۖ وَساءَ لَهُم يَومَ القِيٰمَةِ حِملًا(101)
They will remain in it forever – what an evil burden it will be for them on the Day of Resurrection!(101)
يَومَ يُنفَخُ فِى الصّورِ ۚ وَنَحشُرُ المُجرِمينَ يَومَئِذٍ زُرقًا(102)
On the day when the Trumpet is blown and We shall assemble the guilty on that day, blue -eyed.(102)
يَتَخٰفَتونَ بَينَهُم إِن لَبِثتُم إِلّا عَشرًا(103)
Whispering secretly among themselves, “You have not stayed on earth but for ten days.”(103)
نَحنُ أَعلَمُ بِما يَقولونَ إِذ يَقولُ أَمثَلُهُم طَريقَةً إِن لَبِثتُم إِلّا يَومًا(104)
We know well what they will utter, whereas the wisest among them will say, “You have stayed just for a day.”(104)
وَيَسـَٔلونَكَ عَنِ الجِبالِ فَقُل يَنسِفُها رَبّى نَسفًا(105)
They ask you regarding the mountains; proclaim, “My Lord will blow them into bits and scatter them.”(105)
فَيَذَرُها قاعًا صَفصَفًا(106)
“Therefore leaving the earth just as an empty plain.”(106)
لا تَرىٰ فيها عِوَجًا وَلا أَمتًا(107)
“In which you shall neither see ups nor downs.”(107)
يَومَئِذٍ يَتَّبِعونَ الدّاعِىَ لا عِوَجَ لَهُ ۖ وَخَشَعَتِ الأَصواتُ لِلرَّحمٰنِ فَلا تَسمَعُ إِلّا هَمسًا(108)
On that day they will run after a caller, there will be no deviation in it; and voices shall become hushed before the Most Gracious, so you will not hear except a faint sound.(108)
يَومَئِذٍ لا تَنفَعُ الشَّفٰعَةُ إِلّا مَن أَذِنَ لَهُ الرَّحمٰنُ وَرَضِىَ لَهُ قَولًا(109)
On that day no one’s intercession shall benefit except his to whom the Most Gracious has given permission and whose word He has liked. (The Holy Prophets and virtuous people will be given the permission to intercede. Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him – will be the first to intercede.)(109)
يَعلَمُ ما بَينَ أَيديهِم وَما خَلفَهُم وَلا يُحيطونَ بِهِ عِلمًا(110)
He knows all that is before them and all that is behind them, whereas their knowledge cannot encompass it.(110)
۞ وَعَنَتِ الوُجوهُ لِلحَىِّ القَيّومِ ۖ وَقَد خابَ مَن حَمَلَ ظُلمًا(111)
And all faces shall bow before the Living, the All Sustaining; and the one who bore the burden of injustice, has failed.(111)
وَمَن يَعمَل مِنَ الصّٰلِحٰتِ وَهُوَ مُؤمِنٌ فَلا يَخافُ ظُلمًا وَلا هَضمًا(112)
And the one who does some good deeds, and is a Muslim – he shall have no fear of injustice, nor suffer any loss.(112)
وَكَذٰلِكَ أَنزَلنٰهُ قُرءانًا عَرَبِيًّا وَصَرَّفنا فيهِ مِنَ الوَعيدِ لَعَلَّهُم يَتَّقونَ أَو يُحدِثُ لَهُم ذِكرًا(113)
And this is how We revealed it as an Arabic Qur’an, and in different ways gave promises of punishment, that they may fear or it may create some pondering in their hearts.(113)
فَتَعٰلَى اللَّهُ المَلِكُ الحَقُّ ۗ وَلا تَعجَل بِالقُرءانِ مِن قَبلِ أَن يُقضىٰ إِلَيكَ وَحيُهُ ۖ وَقُل رَبِّ زِدنى عِلمًا(114)
Therefore Supreme is Allah, the True King; and do not hasten in the Qur’an (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him) until its divine revelation has been completed to you; and pray, “My Lord, bestow me more knowledge.”(114)
وَلَقَد عَهِدنا إِلىٰ ءادَمَ مِن قَبلُ فَنَسِىَ وَلَم نَجِد لَهُ عَزمًا(115)
And indeed before this We made a covenant with Adam, so he forgot, and We did not find its intention (in him).(115)
وَإِذ قُلنا لِلمَلٰئِكَةِ اسجُدوا لِءادَمَ فَسَجَدوا إِلّا إِبليسَ أَبىٰ(116)
And when We commanded the angels, “Prostrate before Adam” – so they all prostrated, except Iblis; he refused.(116)
فَقُلنا يٰـٔادَمُ إِنَّ هٰذا عَدُوٌّ لَكَ وَلِزَوجِكَ فَلا يُخرِجَنَّكُما مِنَ الجَنَّةِ فَتَشقىٰ(117)
We therefore said, “O Adam, he is your and your wife’s enemy, so may he not get you both out from heaven, so you then fall into hardship.”(117)
إِنَّ لَكَ أَلّا تَجوعَ فيها وَلا تَعرىٰ(118)
“Indeed for you in heaven is that you may never be hungry nor be unclothed.”(118)
وَأَنَّكَ لا تَظمَؤُا۟ فيها وَلا تَضحىٰ(119)
“And that you never feel thirsty nor hot sunshine hurt you.”(119)
فَوَسوَسَ إِلَيهِ الشَّيطٰنُ قالَ يٰـٔادَمُ هَل أَدُلُّكَ عَلىٰ شَجَرَةِ الخُلدِ وَمُلكٍ لا يَبلىٰ(120)
So the devil incited him, saying, “O Adam, shall I show you the tree of immortality and a kingdom that does not erode?”(120)
فَأَكَلا مِنها فَبَدَت لَهُما سَوءٰتُهُما وَطَفِقا يَخصِفانِ عَلَيهِما مِن وَرَقِ الجَنَّةِ ۚ وَعَصىٰ ءادَمُ رَبَّهُ فَغَوىٰ(121)
So they both ate from it – thereupon their shame became manifest to them, and they started applying on themselves the leaves of heaven; and Adam lapsed in obeying his Lord, so did not reach his goal. (Of achieving immortality)(121)
ثُمَّ اجتَبٰهُ رَبُّهُ فَتابَ عَلَيهِ وَهَدىٰ(122)
Then his Lord chose him, and inclined towards him with His mercy, and guided him.(122)
قالَ اهبِطا مِنها جَميعًا ۖ بَعضُكُم لِبَعضٍ عَدُوٌّ ۖ فَإِمّا يَأتِيَنَّكُم مِنّى هُدًى فَمَنِ اتَّبَعَ هُداىَ فَلا يَضِلُّ وَلا يَشقىٰ(123)
He said, “Both of you go down from heaven, one of you is an enemy to the other; then if the guidance from Me comes to you – then whoever follows My guidance, will not go astray nor be ill-fated.”(123)
وَمَن أَعرَضَ عَن ذِكرى فَإِنَّ لَهُ مَعيشَةً ضَنكًا وَنَحشُرُهُ يَومَ القِيٰمَةِ أَعمىٰ(124)
“And the one who turned away from My remembrance – for him is a confined existence, and We shall raise him blind on the Day of Resurrection.”(124)
قالَ رَبِّ لِمَ حَشَرتَنى أَعمىٰ وَقَد كُنتُ بَصيرًا(125)
He will say, “O my Lord, why have You raised me blind, whereas I was sighted?”(125)
قالَ كَذٰلِكَ أَتَتكَ ءايٰتُنا فَنَسيتَها ۖ وَكَذٰلِكَ اليَومَ تُنسىٰ(126)
He will say, “Similarly did Our signs come to you but you forgot them; and in the same way, nobody will heed you today.”(126)
وَكَذٰلِكَ نَجزى مَن أَسرَفَ وَلَم يُؤمِن بِـٔايٰتِ رَبِّهِ ۚ وَلَعَذابُ الءاخِرَةِ أَشَدُّ وَأَبقىٰ(127)
And this is how We reward him who transgresses and does not accept faith in the signs of his Lord; and indeed the punishment of the Hereafter is the most severe and more lasting.(127)
أَفَلَم يَهدِ لَهُم كَم أَهلَكنا قَبلَهُم مِنَ القُرونِ يَمشونَ فى مَسٰكِنِهِم ۗ إِنَّ فى ذٰلِكَ لَءايٰتٍ لِأُولِى النُّهىٰ(128)
So did they not gain guidance from (knowing) how many generations We have destroyed before them, among whose dwellings they walk? Indeed in it are signs for men of intellect.(128)
وَلَولا كَلِمَةٌ سَبَقَت مِن رَبِّكَ لَكانَ لِزامًا وَأَجَلٌ مُسَمًّى(129)
And had not a command of your Lord been passed, then the punishment would have gripped them – and had a term not been appointed.(129)
فَاصبِر عَلىٰ ما يَقولونَ وَسَبِّح بِحَمدِ رَبِّكَ قَبلَ طُلوعِ الشَّمسِ وَقَبلَ غُروبِها ۖ وَمِن ءانائِ الَّيلِ فَسَبِّح وَأَطرافَ النَّهارِ لَعَلَّكَ تَرضىٰ(130)
Therefore (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him), patiently forbear upon their speech, and praising your Lord proclaim His Purity, before the sun rises and before it sets; and proclaim His Purity at some times of the night and at the two ends of the day, in the hope that you be pleased. (*With the great reward from your Lord)(130)
وَلا تَمُدَّنَّ عَينَيكَ إِلىٰ ما مَتَّعنا بِهِ أَزوٰجًا مِنهُم زَهرَةَ الحَيوٰةِ الدُّنيا لِنَفتِنَهُم فيهِ ۚ وَرِزقُ رَبِّكَ خَيرٌ وَأَبقىٰ(131)
And O listener, do not extend your eyes towards what We have given to disbelieving couples to enjoy – the bloom of the worldly life – so that We may test them with it; and the sustenance of your Lord is the best, and more lasting.(131)
وَأمُر أَهلَكَ بِالصَّلوٰةِ وَاصطَبِر عَلَيها ۖ لا نَسـَٔلُكَ رِزقًا ۖ نَحنُ نَرزُقُكَ ۗ وَالعٰقِبَةُ لِلتَّقوىٰ(132)
And command your household to establish prayer, and yourself be steadfast in it; We do not ask any sustenance from you; We will provide you sustenance; and the excellent result is for piety.(132)
وَقالوا لَولا يَأتينا بِـٔايَةٍ مِن رَبِّهِ ۚ أَوَلَم تَأتِهِم بَيِّنَةُ ما فِى الصُّحُفِ الأولىٰ(133)
And the disbelievers said, “Why does he not bring to us a sign from his Lord?”; did not the explanation of what is in the former Books, come to them?(133)
وَلَو أَنّا أَهلَكنٰهُم بِعَذابٍ مِن قَبلِهِ لَقالوا رَبَّنا لَولا أَرسَلتَ إِلَينا رَسولًا فَنَتَّبِعَ ءايٰتِكَ مِن قَبلِ أَن نَذِلَّ وَنَخزىٰ(134)
And had We destroyed them with some punishment before the advent of a Noble Messenger, they would have certainly said, “Our Lord, why did You not send a Noble Messenger to us, so we would have followed Your signs, before being humiliated and disgraced?”(134)
قُل كُلٌّ مُتَرَبِّصٌ فَتَرَبَّصوا ۖ فَسَتَعلَمونَ مَن أَصحٰبُ الصِّرٰطِ السَّوِىِّ وَمَنِ اهتَدىٰ(135)
Proclaim, “Each one is waiting; so you too wait; very soon you will come to know who are the people of the right path, and who has attained guidance.”(135)
