020.000 Taha

 

020.001

Ta. Ha.

020.002

We have not revealed unto thee (Muhammad) this Qur'an that thou shouldst be distressed,

020.003

But as a reminder unto him who feareth,

020.004

A revelation from Him Who created the earth and the high heavens,

020.005

The Beneficent One, Who is established on the Throne.

020.006

Unto Him belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth, and whatsoever is between them, and whatsoever is beneath the sod.

020.007

And if thou speakest aloud, then lo! He knoweth the secret (thought) and (that which is yet) more hidden.

020.008

Allah! There is no God save Him. His are the most beautiful names.

020.009

Hath there come unto thee the story of Moses ?

020.010

When he saw a fire and said unto his folk: Lo! Wait! I see a fire afar off. Peradventure I may bring you a brand therefrom or may find guidance at the fire.

020.011

And when he reached it, he was called by name: O Moses!

020.012

Lo! I, even I, am thy Lord, So take off thy shoes, for lo! thou art in the holy valley of Tuwa.

020.013

And I have chosen thee, so hearken unto that which is inspired.

020.014

Lo! I, even I, am Allah, There is no God save Me. So serve Me and establish worship for My remembrance.

020.015

Lo! the Hour is surely coming. But I will to keep it hidden, that every soul may be rewarded for that which it striveth (to achieve).

020.016

Therefor, let not him turn thee aside from (the thought of) it who believeth not therein but followeth his own desire, lest thou perish.

020.017

And what is that in thy right hand, O Moses ?

020.018

He said: This is my staff whereon I lean, and wherewith I bear down branches for my sheep, and wherein I find other uses.

020.019

He said: Cast it down, O Moses!

020.020

So he cast it down, and lo! it was a serpent, gliding.

020.021

He said: Grasp it and fear not. We shall return it to its former state.

020.022

And thrust thy hand within thine armpit, it will come forth white without hurt. (That will be) another token.

020.023

That We may show thee (some) of Our greater portents,

020.024

Go thou unto Pharaoh! Lo! he hath transgressed (the bounds).

020.025

(Moses) said: My Lord! relieve my mind

020.026

And ease my task for me;

020.027

And loose a knot from my tongue,

020.028

That they may understand my saying.

020.029

Appoint for me a henchman from my folk,

020.030

Aaron, my brother.

020.031

Confirm my strength with him

020.032

And let him share my task,

020.033

That we may glorify Thee much

020.034

And much remember Thee.

020.035

Lo! Thou art ever Seeing us.

020.036

He said: Thou art granted thy request, O Moses.

020.037

And indeed, another time, already We have shown thee favour,

020.038

When we inspired in thy mother that which is inspired,

020.039

Saying: Throw him into the ark, and throw it into the river, then the river shall throw it on to the bank, and there an enemy to Me and an enemy to him shall take him. And I endued thee with love from Me that thou mightest be trained according to My will,

020.040

When thy sister went and said: Shall I show you one who will nurse him ? and we restored thee to thy mother that her eyes might be refreshed and might not sorrow. And thou didst kill a man and We delivered thee from great distress, and tried thee with a heavy trial. And thou didst tarry years among the folk of Midian. Then camest thou (hither) by (My) providence, O Moses,

020.041

And I have attached thee to Myself.

020.042

Go, thou and thy brother, with My tokens, and be not faint in remembrance of Me.

020.043

Go, both of you, unto Pharaoh. Lo! he hath transgressed (the bounds).

020.044

And speak unto him a gentle word, that peradventure he may heed or fear.

020.045

They said: Our Lord! Lo! we fear that he may be beforehand with us or that he may play the tyrant.

020.046

He said: Fear not. Lo! I am with you twain, Hearing and Seeing.

020.047

So go ye unto him and say: Lo! we are two messengers of thy Lord. So let the children of Israel go with us, and torment them not. We bring thee a token from thy Lord. And peace will be for him who followeth right guidance.

020.048

Lo! it hath been revealed unto us that the doom will be for him who denieth and turneth away.

020.049

(Pharaoh) said: Who then is the Lord of you twain, O Moses ?

020.050

He said: Our Lord is He Who gave unto everything its nature, then guided it aright.

020.051

He said: What then is the state of the generations of old ?

020.052

He said: The knowledge thereof is with my Lord in a Record. My Lord neither erreth nor forgetteth,

020.053

Who hath appointed the earth as a bed and hath threaded roads for you therein and hath sent down water from the sky and thereby We have brought forth divers kinds of vegetation,

020.054

(Saying): Eat ye and feed your cattle. Lo! herein verily are portents for men of thought.

020.055

Thereof We created you, and thereunto We return you, and thence We bring you forth a second time.

020.056

And We verily did show him all Our tokens, but he denied them and refused.

020.057

He said: Hast come to drive us out from our land by thy magic, O Moses ?

020.058

But we surely can produce for thee magic the like thereof; so appoint a tryst between us and you, which neither we nor thou shall fail to keep, at a place convenient (to us both).

020.059

(Moses) said: Your tryst shall be the day of the feast, and let the people assemble when the sun hath risen high.

020.060

Then Pharaoh went and gathered his strength, then came (to the appointed tryst).

020.061

Moses said unto them: Woe unto you! Invent not a lie against Allah, lest He extirpate you by some punishment. He who lieth faileth miserably.

020.062

Then they debated one with another what they must do, and they kept their counsel secret.

020.063

They said: Lo! these are two wizards who would drive you out from your country by their magic, and destroy your best traditions;

020.064

So arrange your plan, and come in battle line. Whoso is uppermost this day will be indeed successful.

020.065

They said: O Moses! Either throw first, or let us be the first to throw ?

020.066

He said: Nay, do ye throw! Then lo! their cords and their staves, by their magic, appeared to him as though they ran.

020.067

And Moses conceived a fear in his mind.

020.068

We said: Fear not! Lo! thou art the higher.

020.069

Throw that which is in thy right hand! It will eat up that which they have made. Lo! that which they have made is but a wizard's artifice, and a wizard shall not be successful to whatever point (of skill) he may attain.

020.070

Then the wizards were (all) flung down prostrate, crying: We believe in the Lord of Aaron and Moses.

020.071

(Pharaoh) said: Ye put faith in him before I give you leave. Lo! he is your chief who taught you magic. Now surely I shall cut off your hands and your feet alternately, and I shall crucify you on the trunks of palm trees, and ye shall know for certain which of us hath sterner and more lasting punishment.

020.072

They said: We choose thee not above the clear proofs that have come unto us, and above Him Who created us. So decree what thou wilt decree. Thou wilt end for us only this life of the world.

020.073

Lo! we believe in our Lord, that He may forgive us our sins and the magic unto which thou didst force us. Allah is better and more lasting.

020.074

Lo! whoso cometh guilty unto his Lord, verily for him is hell. There he will neither die nor live.

020.075

But whoso cometh unto Him a believer, having done good works, for such are the high stations;

020.076

Gardens of Eden underneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide for ever. That is the reward of him who groweth.

020.077

And verily We inspired Moses, saying: Take away My slaves by night and strike for them a dry path in the sea, fearing not to be overtaken, neither being afraid (of the sea).

020.078

Then Pharaoh followed them with his hosts and there covered them that which did cover them of the sea.

020.079

And Pharaoh led his folk astray, he did not guide them.

020.080

O Children of Israel! We delivered you from your enemy, and we made a covenant with you on the holy mountain's side, and sent down on you the manna and the quails,

020.081

(Saying): Eat of the good things wherewith We have provided you, and transgress not in respect thereof lest My wrath come upon you: and he on whom My wrath cometh, he is lost indeed.

020.082

And lo! verily I am Forgiving toward him who repenteth and believeth and doeth good, and afterward walketh aright.

020.083

And (it was said): What hath made thee hasten from thy folk, O Moses ?

020.084

He said: They are close upon my track. I hastened unto Thee, my Lord, that Thou mightest be well pleased.

020.085

He said: Lo! We have tried thy folk in thine absence, and As-Samiri hath misled them.

020.086

Then Moses went back unto his folk, angry and sad. He said: O my people! Hath not your Lord promised you a fair promise ? Did the time appointed then appear too long for you, or did ye wish that wrath from your Lord should come upon you, that ye broke tryst with me ?

020.087

They said: We broke not tryst with thee of our own will, but we were laden with burdens of ornaments of the folk, then cast them (in the fire), for thus As-Samiri proposed.

020.088

Then he produced for them a calf, of saffron hue, which gave forth a lowing sound. And they cried: This is your god and the god of Moses, but he hath forgotten.

020.089

See they not, then, that it returneth no saying unto them and possesseth for them neither hurt nor use ?

020.090

And Aaron indeed had told them beforehand: O my people! Ye are but being seduced therewith, for lo! your Lord is the Beneficent, so follow me and obey my order.

020.091

They said: We shall by no means cease to be its votaries till Moses return unto us.

020.092

He (Moses) said: O Aaron! What held thee back when thou didst see them gone astray,

020.093

That thou followedst me not ? Hast thou then disobeyed my order ?

020.094

He said: O son of my mother! Clutch not my beard nor my head! I feared lest thou shouldst say: Thou hast caused division among the Children of Israel, and hast not waited for my word.

020.095

(Moses) said: And what hast thou to say, O Samiri ?

020.096

He said: I perceived what they perceive not, so I seized a handful from the footsteps of the messenger, and then threw it in. Thus my soul commended to me.

020.097

(Moses) said: Then go! and lo! in this life it is for thee to say: Touch me not! and lo! there is for thee a tryst thou canst not break. Now look upon thy god of which thou hast remained a votary. Verily we will burn it and will scatter its dust over the sea.

020.098

Your God is only Allah, than Whom there is no other God. He embraceth all things in His knowledge.

020.099

Thus relate We unto thee (Muhammad) some tidings of that which happened of old, and We have given thee from Our presence a reminder.

020.100

Whoso turneth away from it, he verily will bear a burden on the Day of Resurrection,

020.101

Abiding under it - an evil burden for them on the Day of Resurrection,

020.102

The day when the Trumpet is blown. On that day we assemble the guilty white-eyed (with terror),

020.103

Murmuring among themselves: Ye have tarried but ten (days).

020.104

We are Best Aware of what they utter when their best in conduct say: Ye have tarried but a day.

020.105

They will ask thee of the mountains (on that day). Say: My Lord will break them into scattered dust.

020.106

And leave it as an empty plain,

020.107

Wherein thou seest neither curve nor ruggedness.

020.108

On that day they follow the summoner who deceiveth not, and voices are hushed for the Beneficent, and thou hearest but a faint murmur.

020.109

On that day no intercession availeth save (that of) him unto whom the Beneficent hath given leave and whose word He accepteth.

020.110

He knoweth (all) that is before them and (all) that is behind them, while they cannot compass it in knowledge.

020.111

And faces humble themselves before the Living, the Eternal. And he who beareth (a burden of) wrongdoing is indeed a failure (on that day).

020.112

And he who hath done some good works, being a believer, he feareth not injustice nor begrudging (of his wage).

020.113

Thus we have revealed it as a Lecture in Arabic, and have displayed therein certain threats, that peradventure they may keep from evil or that it may cause them to take heed.

020.114

Then exalted be Allah, the True King! And hasten not (O Muhammad) with the Qur'an ere its revelation hath been perfected unto thee, and say: My Lord! Increase me in knowledge.

020.115

And verily We made a covenant of old with Adam, but he forgot, and We found no constancy in him.

020.116

And when We said unto the angels: Fall prostrate before Adam, they fell prostrate (all) save Iblis; he refused.

020.117

Therefor we said: O Adam! This is an enemy unto thee and unto thy wife, so let him not drive you both out of the Garden so that thou come to toil.

020.118

It is (vouchsafed) unto thee that thou hungerest not therein nor art naked,

020.119

And that thou thirstest not therein nor art exposed to the sun's heat.

020.120

But the devil whispered to him, saying: O Adam! Shall I show thee the tree of immortality and power that wasteth not away ?

020.121

Then they twain ate thereof, so that their shame became apparent unto them, and they began to hide by heaping on themselves some of the leaves of the Garden. And Adam disobeyed his Lord, so went astray.

020.122

Then his Lord chose him, and relented toward him, and guided him.

020.123

He said: Go down hence, both of you, one of you a foe unto the other. But when there come unto you from Me a guidance, then whoso followeth My guidance, he will not go astray nor come to grief.

020.124

But he who turneth away from remembrance of Me, his will be a narrow life, and I shall bring him blind to the assembly on the Day of Resurrection.

020.125

He will say: My Lord! Wherefor hast Thou gathered me (hither) blind, when I was wont to see ?

020.126

He will say: So (it must be). Our revelations came unto thee but thou didst forget them. In like manner thou art forgotten this Day.

020.127

Thus do We reward him who is prodigal and believeth not the revelations of his Lord; and verily the doom of the Hereafter will be sterner and more lasting.

020.128

Is it not a guidance for them (to know) how many a generation We destroyed before them, amid whose dwellings they walk ? Lo! therein verily are signs for men of thought.

020.129

And but for a decree that had already gone forth from thy Lord, and a term already fixed, the judgment would have been inevitable (in this world).

020.130

Therefor (O Muhammad), bear with what they say, and celebrate the praise of thy Lord ere the rising of the sun and ere the going down thereof. And glorify Him some hours of the night and at the two ends of the day, that thou mayst find acceptance.

020.131

And strain not thine eyes toward that which We cause some wedded pairs among them to enjoy, the flower of the life of the world, that We may try them thereby. The provision of thy Lord is better and more lasting.

020.132

And enjoin upon thy people worship, and be constant therein. We ask not of thee a provision: We provided for thee. And the sequel is for righteousness.

020.133

And they say: If only he would bring us a miracle from his Lord! Hath there not come unto them the proof of what is in the former scriptures ?

020.134

And if we had destroyed them with some punishment before it, they would assuredly have said: Our Lord! If only Thou hadst sent unto us a messenger, so that we might have followed Thy revelations before we were (thus) humbled and disgraced!

020.135

Say: Each is awaiting; so await ye! Ye will come to know who are the owners of the path of equity, and who is right.
