We have not sent down the Quran unto you to (cause) for you (suffering or) sorrow
But only as a remainder to those who fear (Allah)
A Revelation from Him Who created the earth and the high heavens above
(Allah) the Most Gracious (Ar-Rahman) rose over the Throne (of authority)
To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is on the earth, and all that is between them, and all that is underneath the soil
And if you speak out the Word loudly, (it may not matter much): Then verily and surely, He (Allah) knows what is secret and what is still more hidden
Allah! There is no god but He, Unto Him (Allah) belong the Most Beautiful Names
And has the story of Musa (Moses) reached you
When he (Musa) saw a fire: He said to his family, "You stay (behind); I see a fire; Perhaps I can bring you something burning from it, or some guidance at the fire."
And when he came to the fire, a voice was heard: "O Musa (Moses)
"Surely I am your Lord! Therefore (in My presence) remove your shoes: You are in the sacred valley Tuwa
"And I have chosen you: Listen to the revelation (you will receive)
"Surely, I am Allah, there is no god but I: So you worship (only) Me, and establish regular prayer by saying My Praise
"Surely the Hour (of Judgment) is coming— My plan is to keep it hidden— For every soul to get back its reward by the measure of its actions
"Therefore do not let those who do not believe in it and follow their own desires, take you away from it, or you will (also) perish!..
"And what is that in your right hand, O Musa (Moses)?"
He (Musa) said, "It is my rod: I lean on it; With it I beat down corn stalk for my cattle; And in it I find other uses."
(Allah) said, "Throw it, O Musa (Moses)!"
He threw it, and look! It was a snake, actively in motion
(Allah) said, "Seize it, and do not fear: We shall return it at once to its former state..
"Now draw your hand close to your side: It shall come out white (and shining), without harm (or stain)— (Yet) as another Sign—
"That We may show you (two) of Our Greater Signs
"You go to Firon (Pharaoh), verily, he has transgressed all limits."
Musa (Moses) said: "O my Lord! Open up my chest (and my understanding) for me
"Make my work easier for me
"And loosen the knot (that came about when baby Musa put a piece of burning fire in his mouth:) from my tongue (to make me speak more freely)
"So that they (will) understand my speech
"And give me an assistant from my family
"Haroon (Aaron), my brother
"Increase my strength with his (strength)
"And make him share my task
"That we may recite your Praise much
"And remember You much
"Verily, You (Allah) are He, Who (always) looks over (and sees) us."
(Allah) said: "Your prayer is granted, O Musa (Moses)
"And indeed, We have truly granted a favor on you another time (before)
"When We sent by inspiration to your mother, the messag
" ‘Put [the child, (baby Musa)] in the chest, and put (the chest) into the river: The river will put him up on the bank, and there he will be taken up by one who is an enemy to Me and is an enemy to him’: And I placed love over you (O Musa,) from Me: And (this way) you may be brought up under My eye
"When your sister went out and said: ‘Shall I show you one who will nurse and bring up the (child)’? So We brought you (Moses) back to your mother, so that her eye might be cooled and she should not be sad. Then you did kill a man, but We saved you (O Musa!) from great suffering, and We tried you in many ways. Then you waited a number of years with the people of Madyan. Then you came here after the term I (Allah) had decided (for you), O Musa (Moses)
"And I have prepared you for Myself (for My service)..
"Go, you and your brother, with My Signs, and either of you do not become careless, in remembering Me
"Go, both of you to Firon (Pharaoh), verily, he has transgressed (and exceeded) all limits
"And speak to him mildly; In case he may take the warning or fear (Allah)."
They (Musa and Haroon) said: "Our Lord! Verily, We fear that he (Pharaoh) act quickly in (anger to cause) harm against us, or that he transgress against us."
He (Allah) said: "Do not fear, verily, I am with both of you: I hear and see (everything)
"So you both go to him and say, ‘Surely, we are messengers sent by your Lord: Therefore, send out the Children of Israel with us, and do not injure them: Truly, we have come from your Lord with a Sign! And Peace to all, who follow guidance
" ‘Surely it has been revealed to us that the punishment (of Allah waits for) those who reject and turn away.’ "
(When this message was delivered Pharaoh) said: "Who, then, O Musa (Moses), is the Lord of you two (Musa and Haroon)?"
He (Musa) said: "Our Lord is He Who gave to each thing its form and nature, and also gave (it) guidance."
(Pharaoh) said: "Then what is the status of earlier generations?"
He replied: "The knowledge of that is with my Lord, (all) properly written out: My Lord never makes mistakes, nor forgets—
"He Who has made for you the earth like a bed spread out; And (He, Who) has enabled you to go about upon it by all means of roads (canals and every means of transportation): And has sent down water from the sky;" With it have We produced varied pairs of plants each separate from the others
Eat (for yourselves) and graze your cattle: Surely, in this there are Signs for men blessed with understanding
We created you from the (earth), and into it We shall return you, and from it shall We bring you out once again
And indeed, We showed Firon (Pharaoh) all Our Signs, but he rejected and refused (them)
He said: "Have you come to drive us out of our land with your magic, O Musa (Moses)
"Surely then, we can produce magic like yours! So make a trial between us and you, which we shall not fail to keep— Neither we nor you— In a open place where we both will be just and equal."
Musa (Moses) said: "Your trial is (on) the day of the festival, and let the people be gathered when the sun is well up (risen in the fore noon)."
So Firon (Pharaoh) went away: He came up with his plan, and then came (back)
Musa (Moses) said to them: "Misery upon you! You do not make up a lie against Allah, else He completely destroy (all of) you (at once) with (severe) punishment: Surely, he who makes up lies (against Allah) fails totally!"
So they disputed, with one another, over their differences, but they kept their talks secret
They (Pharaoh and his people) said: "Surely, these two are truly (top) magicians: Their idea is to drive you out from your land with their magic, and to get rid of your most respected customs
"Therefore make up your plot, and then assemble in (ordered) ranks: And today he who gains the upper hand, wins (all)."
They said; "O Musa (Moses)! Either you be the one who throws (first) or will we be the first to throw?"
He said: "No, you throw first!" Then look, their ropes and their rods— So it appeared to him, because of their magic— Began to be in life-like movement
So Musa (Moses), in his mind had a (sort of) fear
We (Allah) said: "Fear not! Because you truly have the upper hand
"And throw that which is in your right hand: quickly it will swallow up what they have faked (and) what they have faked is only a magicians trick: And the magician does not succeed, wherever he may go or whatever skill he may attain."
So the magicians were laid down to prostration: They said: "We believe in the Lord of Haroon (Aaron) and Musa (Moses)."
(Pharaoh) said: "(Will) you believe in Him before I give you permission? Surely, this must be your leader, who has taught you (your) magic! Be sure I will cut off your hands and feet on opposite sides, and I will have you crucified on the trunk of palm—trees: So that you will know for sure (about), which of us can give the more severe and longer lasting punishment!"
They said: "We will never consider you as more than the Clear Signs that have come to us, or (more) than Him Who created us! So order whatever you want to order: Because you can only order (about things in) the life of this world
"Verily, for us, we have believed in our Lord (Rab): That He (Allah) may forgive us our mistakes, and the magic which you forced us (to perform): And Allah is Best (Kha’ir, One for rewards) and (Allah is) Most Enduring (Ba’qi)."
Surely he who comes to his Lord as a criminal (at Judgment), for him is Hell: In there he will neither die nor live
But those who come to Him as believers who have worked righteous deeds— For them are supreme ranks—
Gardens of Eternity, under which flow rivers; They will live in there for ever: Like this is the reward for those who purify themselves (of evil)
And indeed, We revealed to Musa (Moses): "Travel during the night with My servants, and keep on a dry path for them through the sea, without fear of being overtaken (by Firon) and without (any other) fear."
Then Firon (Pharaoh) came after them with his (hosts of) armies, but the (tidal) waters completely came over them (Pharaoh and armies) and covered them up
And Firon (Pharaoh) led his people away from right instead of leading them towards right path
O you Children of Israel! We delivered you from your enemy and We made a promise to you on the right side of Mount (Sinai) and We sent down to you manna and quails
(By instructing you): "Eat from the good things We have given to you for your living, but do no excesses in there, else My Anger should rightfully come down on you: And those upon whom comes down my Anger, they will be damned
"And verily, without doubt, I am (also) He Who forgives again and again, those who repent, believe, and do right— Who, in reality, are ready to receive true guidance."
(And when Musa was on the Mount, Allah asked:) "What made you hurry ahead of your people O Musa (Moses)?"
He replied; "They are close on my footsteps: And I hurried to You, O my Lord, that You may be pleased."
(Allah) said: "Verily, We have tested your people in your absence: And As-Samiri has led them astray."
Then Musa (Moses) returned to his people in a state of (slight) anger and sorrow. He said: "O my people! Did your Lord not make a fair (and valuable) Promise to you? Then did the Promise seem long (in coming) to you? Or did you want that Anger to come down from your Lord upon you, and so you broke your (own) promise to me?"
They said: "We did not break the promise to you, as far as it was within our power: But we were made to carry the weight of the ornaments of (all) the people, and we threw them (into the fire), and that was what the As-Samiri suggested
"Then he (As-Samiri) brought out (of the fire) the image of a calf before the (people): It seemed to moo (like a low noise of a cow): So they said: ‘This is your god, and the god of Musa (Moses), but he (Musa) has forgotten (his god)!’ "
Could they not see that it could not reply a word to them, and that it had no power either to harm them or to do them (any) good
And before this, Haroon (Aaron) had already said to them: "O my people! You are being tested in this: And surely, your Lord is (Allah) the Most Gracious (Rahman): So follow me and obey my command."
They had said (to Haroon): "We will not stop this worship, till Musa (Moses) returns to us."
[Musa (Moses)] said: "O Haroon (Aaron)! What stopped you, (even) though you saw them going wrong
"From following me? Did you then disobey my order?"
[Haroon (Aaron)] replied: "O son of my mother! Do not grab (me) by my beard, nor by (the hair of) my head! Truly, I feared that you may say; ‘You have caused a split in the Children of Israel, and you did not respect my word!’ "
[Musa (Moses)] said: "Then, what is your case, O Samiri?"
He replied: "I saw what they did not see: So I took a handful (of dust) from the footprint of the messenger, and threw it (into the calf): Thus did my soul tell me."
[Musa (Moses)] said: "Then, be gone! And surely your (punishment) in this life will be that you will say, ‘Do not touch me’: And verily (as future punishment), you have a promise (a curse) that will not fail: Now look at your god, of whom you have become a true worshipper: We will surely (melt) it in a (hot) burning fire and throw it far and wide in the sea!"
But the God for all of you is One Allah: There is no god but He: He understands all things in His Wisdom
Like this do We tell you some stories about what happened before: And indeed, We have sent you (O Prophet!) A Message from Our Own Presence
If any (of the people) do turn away from it, surely they will bear the burden on the Day of Judgment
They will stay in this (state) and painful will be the burden upon them on that Day of Judgment—
The Day when the Trumpet will be sounded: That Day, We shall gather the criminals (disbelievers), (their) eyes dim (with fear)
In whispers will they talk with each other: "You have waited no longer than ten (days);"
We know very well what they will say: When their leader, the best one in conduct will say: "You have waited no longer than a day!"
They ask you about the Mountains: Say, "My Lord will pull them out and throw them like dust
"Then He will leave it like smooth and level plains
"Nothing bent (crooked) or curved will you see in their place."
On that Day, the mankind will strictly follow (the voice of Allah's) Caller: No crookedness (can they show) him (the Caller): All sounds shall be quiet in the Presence of (Allah), the Most Gracious (Rahman): And you shall hear nothing except the hidden voice [or the secret speech — (in the trample of their march)]
On that Day shall no pleading help except those for whom permission has been granted by (Allah) the Most Gracious (Ar-Rahman) and whose word is acceptable to Him
He knows what is before (them now), or after or behind them (in the Hereafter): And what they shall not understand it with what they know
And (all) faces shall look down before (Him)— The Ever-Living (Al-Hai’i), the Self-Sustaining and the Eternal (Al-Khyumm): Truly hopeless will be the man who carries injustice (on his back)
And he who works acts of righteousness, and has faith, (he) will have no fear of harm nor of any stopping (of what is due to him)
Thus We have sent this down— As the Quran in Arabic— And in there some of the warnings are explained in detail, so that they may fear Allah, or that it may make them remember (Him)
Then High above all is Allah, the King, (and) the Truth! Do not be in haste with the Quran before its revelation to you is completed, but say, "O my Lord! Enhance me in Knowledge."
And indeed, before this, We had already taken the promise from Adam, but he forgot: And on his part, We found no firm commitment
And (remember) when We said to the angels: "Prostrate yourselves to Adam," they prostrated themselves, but not Satan: He refused
Then We said: "O Adam! Surely, this (creature of smokeless flame) is an enemy to you and your wife: So let him not get you both out of the Garden, so that you end up in suffering
"In there, there are (enough things) for you not to go hungry nor to go naked
"And not to suffer from thirst, nor from the suns heat."
Then Satan whispered evil to him: And he said: "O Adam! Shall I lead you to the tree of eternity and to a kingdom that never declines (or spoils)?"
Then, they (Adam and his wife) both ate from the tree, and so their nakedness (private parts) appeared to (could be seen by) them: They began to sew together, for their covering, leaves from the Garden (Paradise): Thus Adam disobeyed His Lord, and allowed himself to be misled (into wrong conduct)
Then his Lord chose him (again for His Grace): He (Allah) turned to him with forgiveness, and gave him guidance
He said: "Get you down, both of you— All together from the Garden (Paradise), with hate (and anger) between one another: Then if, as it is for sure, guidance comes to you from Me, then whosoever follows My guidance, will not lose his way, nor fall (deep) into sorrow
"But whosoever turns away from My Message, surely for him is a life narrowed down, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Judgment."
He (the disbeliever) will say: "O my Lord! Why have You raised me up blind whereas I had sight (before)?"
(Allah) will say: "(You acted) like this, when Our Signs came to you; You disregard them (and acted blind): So will you, this Day, be disregarded."
And like this, We will repay him who exceeds beyond the limits and does not believe in the Signs of his Lord: And the Penalty of the Hereafter is far more painful and more lasting
Is it not a warning to those men (to remember) how many peoples We destroyed before them, in whose shadows they (now) move? Surely, in this are Signs for men blessed with understanding. [
And if it was not for a Word that came before from your Lord, (the punishment) must necessarily have come: But there is a time appointed (for respite)
So (O Prophet!) be patient with what they say, and (constantly) say (and recite) the Praises of your Lord, before the raising of the sun, and before its setting; Yes, say (and recite) them for a part of the hours of the night, and at the (two) ends of the day: So that you may have (all the spiritual) joy
And do not strain your eyes in the desire of the things We have given for enjoyment to some of those people, the splendor of the life in the world, by which We test them: But the gift from your Lord is better and more lasting
And enjoin prayer on your family, and be constant in (insisting upon) it. We ask you not to provide livelihood: We provide it for you. And the (gift of) the Hereafter is for righteous
They say: "Why does he not bring us a sign from His Lord?” Has not a Clear Sign come to them of all that was in the former Books of Revelation
And if We had sent a penalty on them before now, surely, they would have said: "Our Lord! If only You had sent us a messenger, we should certainly have followed Your Sign before we were humiliated and put to shame."
Say: "Each one (of us) is waiting: So you wait too, and you will know who are on the Even (and Straight) Path and those who have let themselves be guided."
