We did not send down the Qur'an to you that you distress yourself
But only as an admonition to him who fears (Allah)
It has been sent down from Him Who created the earth and the high heavens
The Beneficent (Allah Who) dominates on the 'Arsh (the Throne of existence)
To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, and whatever is between them, and whatever is beneath the ground
And if you utter aloud (or whisper, it is no matter): for verily He knows the secret (of yours) and (that which is yet) more hidden
Allah, there is no god but He. To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names
And has the story of Moses reached you
When he saw a fire, then he said to his family: 'Wait (a little)! Verily I perceive a fire; perhaps I can bring you a brand from it, or may find some guidance at the fire'
Then when he came to the fire, he was called: 'O Moses!
Verily I am your Lord! Therefore take off your shoes! Verily you are in the holy valley of Tuw?'
And I myself have chosen you; therefore hearken unto what is revealed
Verily I, I(alone), am Allah. There is no god save Me. So worship (only) Me, and establish prayer for My remembrance
Verily the Hour (of Doom) is coming, (but) I will to keep it hidden so that every soul may be rewarded for its endeavour
Therefore let him who believes not in it and follows his own vain desires turn you away from it, lest you perish
And (Allah said) what is that in your right hand O Moses
He (Moses)said: 'It is my rod: I lean on it, and I beat down leaves with it for my sheep, and there are (also) other uses therein for me'
Said He: 'Cast it down O Moses
Then he cast it down, and lo! it was a serpent gliding
Said He: 'Take it, and fear not, We will restore it to its first state'
And place your hand under your armpit, it will come forth white (shining) without harm, (and this also is) another sign (miracle)
That We may show you of Our greater signs
Go to Pharaoh! Verily he has transgressed (the bounds)
(Moses) said: 'My Lord! Expand me my breast
And make easy for me my task
And loose a knot from my tongue
(That) they may understand my saying
And appoint for me an assistant from my family
Strengthen my back by him
And associate him (with me) in my affair
So that we glorify You much
And remember You abundantl
Verily You are ever seeing of us
Said He: 'You are granted your request, O Moses
And indeed We have conferred a favour on you another time
When We inspired in your mother what must be inspired
(Saying) that: 'Cast him into a chest, then cast it into the sea, then the sea shall cast him up on the bank; there shall take him one (who is an) enemy to Me and an enemy to him.' And I cast down upon you love from Me (that every one may love you), in order that you might be brought up (and trained) in My sight
When your sister goes forth to say: 'Shall I direct you to one who will nurse him?' So We returned you to your mother that her eye be refreshed and she should not grieve. And you did slay a man (of Pharaohic ones) but We delivered you from grief, and We tried you with various trials; then you did tarry a number of years among the people of Midian, then you came hither as ordained, O Moses
And I have (prepared and) chosen you for Myself
Go you and your brother, with My signs (miracles), and be not remiss in remembrance of Me
Go, you both, unto Pharaoh! verily he has transgressed (the bounds)
Yet speak gently to him, perhaps he may get admonished or fear (Allah)
They (Moses and Aaron) said: 'Our Lord! Verily we fear that he may exceed against us, or that he may wax insolent
Said He: 'Fear not. Verily I am with you both, hearing and seeing'
So go you both unto him and say: '(O Pharaoh!) Verily we are Messengers from your Lord. Send forth, therefore, the Children of Israel with us and do not chastise them. We have brought you a sign (a miracle) from your Lord, And peace will be upon him who follows the guidance
Verily it has been revealed unto us that the chastisement will be upon him who rejects (the Divine Signs) and turns away
He (Pharaoh) said: 'Who then is the Lord of you two, O Moses?'
He said: 'Our Lord is He Who gave everything its creation. Then guided (it) aright'
(Pharaoh) said: 'What then is the state of the former generations?'
He said: 'The knowledge of them is with my Lord in a Book. My Lord neither errs, nor does He forget'
'He Who made the earth for you a cradle, and made for you therein paths, and sent down water from the sky'. Then, thereby, We brought forth kinds of diverse pairs of plants
Eat (for yourselves) and pasture your cattle; verily in this there are signs for men of thought
From it (the earth) We created you, and into it will We return you, and from it will We bring you forth a second time
And indeed We showed him (Pharaoh) Our signs, all of them, but he rejected and refused
Said he: 'Have you come to us to drive us out of our land with your magic, O Moses?'
(Pharaoh continued,) 'Then we too will surely bring you sorcery the like of it; therefore appoint a tryst between us and you which neither we nor you shall fail to keep, in a place alike for both'
(Moses) said: 'Your tryst shall be the day of festival, and let the people gather together at the high noon'
So Pharaoh turned his back and gathered his plan (fully), then (on the appointed tryst) he came again
Moses said to them: 'Woe to you! Do not forge a lie against Allah, lest He destroy you with a chastisement, and indeed he who forges (a lie) fails
Then they disputed upon their affair among themselves and kept the discourse secret
They said: 'These two are certainly two sorcerers who intend to drive you out from your land by their sorcery and wipe out your superior way
Therefore gather your plan (fully); then come in (an orderly) line, and whoever today is uppermost will be indeed successful
They (the sorcerers) said: 'O' Moses! Will you throw, or shall we be the first who throw?'
He (Moses) said: 'Nay, do you throw (yours)!' Then behold, their ropes and their rods seemed to him, by their sorcery, as if they were sliding
Then Moses felt in himself a fear
Said We: 'Fear not! Verily you are the uppermost
And throw down what is in your right hand! It will swallow up, what they have made. Verily what they have made is but a plan of a sorcerer, and the sorcerer will not be successful wherever he goes'
Then the sorcerers fell down in prostration, saying: 'We believed in the Lord of Aaron and Moses!'
Said (Pharaoh): 'Did you believe in him before I should give you permissiona Verily he is the chief of you who has taught you sorcery, so I will certainly cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides, and I will certainly crucify you upon the trunks of palm-trees, and you shall certainly know which of us is more severe and more lasting in punishment'
They said: 'Never will we prefer you (O Pharaoh) to the clear proofs (miracles) that have come to us, and to Him Who created us! Decree then whatever you desire to decree, for you may decree only about the life of this world
Verily we have believed in our Lord that He may forgive us our faults, and the sorcery to which you did compel us. Allah is better and more lasting
Verily he who comes guilty to his Lord, then for him is Hell, wherein he shall neither die (to deliver) nor live (easily)
And whoever comes to Him a believer (and) he has done righteous deeds, for such are the most sublime degrees
(And) Gardens of Eternity beneath which rivers flow wherein shall they abide forever and this is the reward of him who purifies himself (from evil)
And We indeed revealed unto Moses (saying:): 'Take away My servants by night, and strike for them a dry path in the sea, with no fear of being overtaken (by Pharaoh) nor you be afraid (of being drowned)
Then Pharaoh pursued them with his armies so (the bellows) of the sea covered them, as they were covered (completely drowned)
And Pharaoh led his people astray and he did not guide them (aright)
O Children of Israel! We delivered you from your enemy, and We made a covenant with you on the right side of Tur (the Mount Sinai), and We sent down unto you Manna and quails
Eat of the good things We have provided for your sustenance, but commit no excess therein, lest My Wrath should descend on you, and on whomever My Wrath does descend, he is lost indeed
And verily I am the most forgiving to him who repents and believes and does righteous deed, and at last is guided
And (Allah said): 'What caused you to hasten from your people, O' Moses?'
Said (Moses): 'They are upon my track, and I hastened unto You, my Lord, that You might be pleased'
Said He: 'Verily We have tested your people in your absence and the SAmiri has led them astray'
Then Moses returned to his people angry and sad, saying: 'O my people! did not your Lord promise you a fair promise (the descent of the Turah)a Did then the time (of my absence) seem so long to youa Or did you desire that Wrath should descend from your Lord on you so that you failed in your tryst with me?'
They said: 'We did not fail in our tryst with you of our own accord, but we were laden with burdens of ornaments of the people, then we cast them (in the fire), and thus did the Samiri suggest'
Then he (Samiri) produced for them a (mere) body of a Calf that lowed. So they said: 'This is your god and the god of Moses', but he forgot (both the Lord and Moses' teachings)
Do they not see then that it (the Calf) returns to them no saying and possesses neither harm nor profit for them
And (yet) Aaron had aforetime said to them: 'O my people! Verily you are being tested therewith (the Calf), and verily your Lord is the Beneficent (Allah); therefore follow me and obey my order'
They said: 'Never will We cease worshipping it, until Moses returns unto us'
(Moses) said: 'O Aaron! What hindered you when you saw them going astray
So that you did not follow mea Did you then disobey my order?'
Said (Aaron): 'O son of my mother! Seize me neither by my beard nor by (the hair of) my head! Verily I feared lest you would say 'You have caused division among the Children of Israel, and you did not observe my word!'
(Moses) said: 'What then was your object, O Samiri?
He said: 'I perceived what they did not perceive, so I took a handful of dust from the messenger's track, then I threw it (into the Calf); thus my self prompted me'
(Moses) said: 'Depart then! Verily your share (of punishment) in this life will be that you will say: 'Touch (me) not'; and surely there is a tryst for you (in Hereafter) which never will fail, and (now) look at your god to whose worship you kept (so long); we will certainly burn it, then we will certainly scatter (the ashes of) it broadcastin the se?'
Verily your God is Allah; there is no god but He, (and) He embraces all things in (His) knowledge
(O Apostle) thus do We relate to you some of the news of what has gone before; and indeed We have given to you from Ourselves a Reminder (the Qur'an)
Whoever turns away from it, verily he will bear, on the Day of Judgment, a burden
They will abide in this (burden of sin); and evil will the burden be for them on the Day of Judgment
(On) the day when the Trumpet shall be blown, and We will muster the guilty, blear-eyed, on that day
They shall consult among themselves in a low voice (saying): 'You did tarry but ten (days)'
We know best what they will say when their best in conduct will say: 'You tarried but a day'
And they ask you (O Apostle) about the mountains (on that Day). Say: 'My Lord will uproot them and scatter them (as dust)
Then He will leave them (as) a plain, smooth level
Wherein you will see no crookedness neither any curving'
On that day they will follow the caller in whom is no crookedness, and the voices shall be low before (the grandeur of) the Beneficent (Allah), so that you hear not but a faint murmur
On that Day shall no intercession avail save (that of) him to whom the Beneficent (Allah) gives leave and whose word He is pleased with
He knows what is before them and what is behind them, but they (people) do not comprehend Him in (their) knowledge
And (on that Day, all) faces will be humbled before the Ever-Living, the Self-Subsistent (Allah), and whoever bears inequity will indeed be disappointed
And whoever does good works, and he is a believer (on that day) shall fear neither of injustice nor of (any) curtailment (of his wage)
And thus We sent it down as a perspicuous Qur'an and explained therein certain warnings that they may keep from evil or that it may serve unto them a reminder
So high exalted is Allah, The Ture Sovereign; and do not make haste (O Apostle) with the Qur'an before its revelation is completed unto you, and say: 'My Lord! increase me in knowledge'
And We had made covenant with Adam before, but he forgot, and We found in him no constancy
And when We said to the angels: 'Prostrate to Adam', they (all) prostrated except Iblis; he refused
Then We said: 'O Adam! Verily this is an enemy to you and to your wife. Therefore let him not expel you both from the Garden so that you come to toil
(For) verily you will be neither hungry therein, nor naked
And that you shall not be thirsty therein nor suffer (the beat of) the sun
Then Satan whispered (evil suggestions) to him, saying: 'O Adam! Shall I guide you to the Tree of Eternity and to a kingdom that never decays
So they both ate of it (the forbidden tree), then their shameful parts became exposed to them, and they both took to stitching upon themselves leaves of the Garden. And (thus) Adam disobeyed his Lord, and went astray
Then his Lord chose him, so He turned unto him (mercifully) and guided him
(Allah) said: 'Get you down, both of you, all together, from it (the Garden), with enmity one to another. So if there comes to you a guidance from Me, then (be sure) whoever follows My guidance, will not lose his way nor fall into misery
And whoever turns away from My remembrance verily for him is a life straitened, and the Day of Resurrection We shall raise him blind
He will say: 'My Lord! Why have You raised me blind, whereas indeed I was a seeing one (in the world)?'
(Allah) will say: 'Even so, Our Signs came to you, but you neglected them; in like manner you are forgotten this Day'
And thus We recompense him who is prodigal and does not believe in the Signs of his Lord and certainly the chastisement of the Hereafter is more grievous and more lasting
Does it not then guide such men (to call to mind) how many of the generations We did destroy before them, amid whose dwellings they (today) walk abouta Verily there are signs in this for those (endowed) with understanding
And had there not been a decree that went forth before from your Lord and an appointed term, (their punishment) would necessarily have come
So be patient with what they say, and glorify your Lord by praising Him before the rising of the sun and before its setting, and during (some) hours of the night also glorify (Him) and during parts of the day, that you may be pleased
And do not stretch your eyes to that thing which We have given parties of them to enjoy; (this is) the splendour of the life of the world that We may try them in it; and the provision of your Lord is better and more lasting
And bid your family to pray and be constant therein. We do not ask you sustenance, (but) We give you sustenance, and the (good) end is for (the people of) righteousness
And they said: 'Why does he not bring us a sign (a miracle) from his Lord?' Has there not come to them a clear proof of what is in the former Books
And had We destroyed them with a punishment before him (the Messenger), they would certainly have said: 'Our Lord! Why did You not send us a Messenger so that we might have followed Your Signs before that we were humiliated and disgraced
Say: 'Each one (of us) is awaiting, therefore do await, then soon you will come to know who is the follower of the straight and even way, and who is guided'
