28:1  Ta.Sin.Mim.
28:2  Those are the signs of the clear book.
28:3  We recite to you from the news of Moses and Pharaoh with truth, for a people who believe.
28:4  Indeed, Pharaoh was lofty in the land and made its people sects; a party of them he weakened, slaughtering their sons and letting their women live. Indeed, he was of those who work corruption.
28:5  And We wished to be gracious to those who were weakened in the earth, and to make them models, and to make them the heirs;
28:6  And to establish for them in the earth; and to show Pharaoh and Haman and their hosts what they feared from them.
28:7  And We inspired the mother of Moses, 'Suckle him; and when you are afraid for him then throw him into the river, and do not fear and do not grieve; indeed, We shall restore him to you, and make him of the messengers.'
28:8  And Pharaoh's family picked him up that he might be for them an enemy and a grief; indeed, Pharaoh and Haman and their hosts were sinners.
28:9  And Pharaoh's wife said, 'A coolness of eyes for me and for you. Do not kill him; it may be that he will profit us, or we may take him for a son.' And they did not perceive.
28:10  And the heart of Moses' mother became void; she almost disclosed him, if not that We bound up her heart that she might be of the believers.
28:11  And she said to his sister, 'Follow him.' So she looked after him from afar, and they did not perceive.
28:12  And We made unlawful for him the wet nurses before, so she said, 'Shall I guide you to the people of a house who will take care of him for you, and they will be sincere to him?'
28:13  So We restored him to his mother that her eye might be cooled, and that she might not grieve, and that she might know that the promise of God is true, But most of them do not know.
28:14  And when he reached his strength, and was settled, We gave him judgement and knowledge; and thus do We reward the good-doers.
28:15  And he entered the city at a time of heedlessness of its people, and he found therein two men fighting; this of his sect and this of his enemy. And he who was of his sect asked his aid against him who was of his enemy; and Moses struck him with his fist and finished him. He said, 'This is of the work of the devil. Indeed, he is a misleading manifest enemy.'
28:16  He said, 'My Lord! Indeed, I have wronged my soul, so forgive me.' So He forgave him; indeed, He is the Forgiving, the Compassionate.
28:17  He said, 'My Lord! For that you have favoured me, so I will not be a supporter of the criminals.'
28:18  And on the morrow he was afraid in the city, vigilant. And behold, the one who sought his help the day before cried to him for aid. Moses said to him, 'Indeed, you are surely one clearly erring.'
28:19  Then when he wished to assault him who was an enemy to them both, he said, 'O Moses! Do you desire to kill me as you killed a person yesterday? You only desire to be a tyrant in the earth; and you do not desire to be of those who do well.'
28:20  And a man came from the remote parts of the city running, he said, 'O Moses! Indeed, the chiefs are deliberating concerning you to kill you; so go forth; indeed, I am to you of the sincere advisers.'
28:21  So he went forth therefrom, afraid, vigilant. He said, 'My Lord, save me from the unjust people.'
28:22  And when he turned his face towards Midian, he said, 'It may be my Lord will guide me the level of way.'
28:23  And when he came to the water of Midian he found on it a nation of people watering. And he found beside them two women keeping back. He said, 'What is your design?' They said, 'We cannot water until the herdsmen have finished; and our father is a very old man.'
28:24  So he watered for them; then he turned back to the shade and said, 'My Lord! Indeed, I am in need of what you send down to me of good.'
28:25  And one of the two came to him walking modestly; she said, 'Indeed, my father calls you, to reward you the wage for what you watered for us.' And when he came to him and narrated to him the story, he said, 'Do not fear, you are safe from the unjust people.'
28:26  One of them said, 'O my father! Hire him; indeed, the best of those whom you can hire is the strong, the trustworthy.'
28:27  He said, 'Indeed, I desire to marry you to one of these two daughters of mine, on condition that you serve me for hire eight years; and if you fulfil ten then it is of yourself; and I do not wish to make it difficult for you; you will find me, if God wills, of the righteous.'
28:28  He said, 'That is between me and you; whichever of the two terms I fulfil, then no enmity against me, and God is a trustee over what we say.'
28:29  So when Moses had fulfilled the term, and was travelling with his people, he perceived from the side of the mountain a fire; he said to his people, 'Stay here; indeed, I have perceived a fire, perhaps I may bring you news from it, or a brand of fire perhaps you may warm yourselves.'
28:30  And when he came to it he was called from the right side of the valley, in the blessed valley, from the tree, 'O Moses! Indeed, I am God, the Lord of the worlds;
28:31  So throw down your rod;' and when he saw it quivering as if it were a snake, he turned away in flight and did not return. 'O Moses! Approach and do not fear, indeed, you are of the safe.
28:32  Thrust your hand in your bosom, it shall come out white, without evil; and fold to yourself your wing from fear; and those are two proofs from your Lord to Pharaoh and his chiefs; indeed, they are a disobedient people.'
28:33  He said, 'My Lord! Indeed, I have killed a person amongst them, and I fear that they will kill me.
28:34  And my brother Aaron, he is more eloquent of tongue than I; so send him with me as a support, to verify me; indeed, I fear that they will call me liar.'
28:35  He said, 'We will strengthen your arm with your brother; and We will make for you both authority, and they shall not reach you. With Our signs; you two and those who follow you shall be the overcomers.'
28:36  And when Moses came to them with Our signs, clear proofs, they said, 'This is not except invented magic; and we have not heard of this amongst our forefathers.'
28:37  And Moses said, 'My Lord knows best who comes with guidance from Him, and whose shall be the end of the abode; indeed, the unjust shall not prosper.'
28:38  And Pharaoh said, 'O chiefs! I do not know any god for you besides me; so kindle for me, O Haman! The clay and make for me a tower, perhaps I may mount up to the God of Moses; and indeed, I think he is of the liars.'
28:39  And he was proud, he and his hosts in the land, without right; and they thought that they would not be returned to Us.
28:40  So We seized him and his hosts, and We threw them into the sea; so behold, how was the end of the unjust.
28:41  And We made them models calling to the fire; and on the Day of Resurrection they shall not be helped.
28:42  And We followed them up in this world with a curse; and on the Day of Resurrection they shall be of the abhorred.
28:43  And verily, We gave Moses the Book, after what We had destroyed the former generations, an insight to mankind and a guidance and a mercy; perhaps they may remember.
28:44  And you were not on the western side when we decreed to Moses the command; and you were not of the witnesses.
28:45  But We raised up generations, and life was prolonged for them; and you were not staying amidst the people of Midian, reciting to them Our signs; but We were sending.
28:46  And you were not by the side of the mountain when We called; but it is a mercy from your Lord, that you may warn a people to whom no warner has come before you; perhaps they may remember.
28:47  And lest there should befall them a disaster for what their hands have sent before, and they should say, 'Our Lord! Why did you not send us a messenger? For we would have followed Your signs and been of the believers.'
28:48  And when the truth comes to them from Us they say, 'Why was he not given like that which was given to Moses?' Did they not disbelieve in what Moses was given before? - they say, 'Two works of magic supporting each other;' and they say, 'Indeed, we disbelieve in all.'
28:49  Say, 'Then bring a book from God which is a better guide than both of them, follow it, if you are truthful.'
28:50  And if they do not answer you, then know that they only follow their lusts; and who is more astray than he who follows his lust without guidance from God? Indeed, God does not guide the unjust people.
28:51  And indeed, We have caused the word to reach them, perhaps they may remember.
28:52  Those to whom We gave the Book before it, they believe in it;
28:53  And when it is recited to them they say, ‘We believe in it. Indeed, it is the truth from Our Lord. Indeed, before it we were Muslims.'
28:54  Those shall be given their reward twice, for that they were patient, and repelled evil with good, and of what We have provided them they spend.
28:55  And when they hear idle speech, they turn away from it and say, 'We have our works and you have your works. Peace be on you. We do not seek the ignorant.'
28:56  Indeed, you cannot guide whom you love, but God guides whom He wills; and He knows best of the guided ones.
28:57  And they say, 'If we follow the guidance with you, we shall be snatched from our land.' Have We not established for them a safe sanctuary, to which is brought fruits of all things, a provision from Us? But most of them do not know.
28:58  And how many a city have We destroyed that exulted in its livelihood? These are their dwellings, never dwelt in after them, except a little; and We are the heirs.
28:59  And your Lord would never destroy cities until He sent in their mother a messenger reciting to them Our signs; nor would We destroy cities unless their people were unjust.
28:60  And whatever thing you may be given is a provision of the worldly life and its adornment. And what is with God is better and more lasting; have you then no sense?
28:61  Is he to whom We have promised a good promise which he shall meet with, like him to whom We have given the enjoyment of the worldly life, then on the Day of Resurrection he shall be of the arraigned?
28:62  And on the day He will call them and say, 'Where are My partners whom you used to claim?'
28:63  And those against whom the sentence is due shall say, 'Our Lord! These are those whom we led astray; we led them astray as we were astray. But we clear ourselves to You; they did not worship us.'
28:64  And it will be said, 'Call upon your partners;' and they will call upon them, but they will not answer them, and they shall see the punishment; would that they had been guided.
28:65  And the day He shall call them and say, 'What was it you answered the messengers?'
28:66  On that day the tidings will be dimmed for them, and they shall not ask each other.
28:67  But as for him who repents and believes and does right, then it may be that he will be among the prosperous.
28:68  And your Lord creates what He wills and chooses; they have not the choice. Glory be to God and high is He above what they associate.
28:69  And your Lord knows what their breasts conceal and what they manifest.
28:70  And He is God, there is no god but He; to Him is the praise, in the first and the last; and His is the judgment; and to Him you shall be returned.
28:71  Say, 'Have you considered, if God made for you the night endless until the Day of Resurrection, who is the god, besides God, to bring you light? Will you not then hear?'
28:72  Say, 'Have you considered, if God made for you the day endless until the Day of Resurrection, who is the god, besides God, to bring you night to rest therein? Will you not then see?'
28:73  But of His mercy He has made for you the night and the day, that you may rest therein, and that you may seek of His grace, and perhaps you may give thanks.
28:74  And the day He shall call them and shall say, 'Where are My partners whom you used to claim?'
28:75  And We will draw out from every nation a witness; and We will say, 'Bring your proof,' Then they will know that the truth is God's; and what they had devised shall go astray from them.
28:76  Indeed, Korah was of the people of Moses, and he was outrageous against them; and We gave him treasuries of which the keys would bear down a band of men endowed with strength. When his people said to him, 'Do not exult; indeed, God does not love those who exult.
28:77  But seek, through what God has given you, the home of the hereafter; and do not forget your portion of the world, and do good, as God has been good to you; and seek not evil doing in the earth; indeed, God does not love the evil doers.'
28:78  He said, 'I have only been given it on account of knowledge I have.' Did he not know that God indeed destroyed before him of the generations those who were stronger than he in might, and had amassed more? And the sinners shall not be asked about their crimes.
28:79  And he went out to his people in his ornaments; those who desired the life of the world said, 'O would that we had the like of what Korah has been given. Indeed, he is endowed with mighty fortune.'
28:80  But those who had been given knowledge said, 'Woe to you! The reward of God is better for him who believes and does right; but none shall meet with it except the patient.'
28:81  Then We sank the earth with him and with his house; and He had no troop to help him besides God, nor was he of those who were helped.
28:82  And on the morrow those who had yearned for his place the day before said, 'Ah, ah! God extends provision to whom He wills of His servants and straitens it; had not God been gracious to us, He surely would have sank with us. Ah, ah! The disbelievers shall not prosper.'
28:83  That is the home of the hereafter; We make it for those who do not wish to be haughty in the earth, nor to do evil, and the end is for the pious.
28:84  Whoever brings a good deed shall have better than it; and whoever brings an evil deed - those who do evil deeds shall only be rewarded for what they have done.
28:85  Indeed, He who has ordained upon you the Quran will surely restore you to a place of return. Say, 'My Lord knows best who brings guidance, and who is in clear error.'
28:86  And you did not hope that the Book would be thrown to you, except a mercy from your Lord. So do not be a supporter to the disbelievers.
28:87  And let them not turn you from the signs of God, after they have been sent down to you; but call to your Lord and do not be of the idolaters.
28:88  And do not call upon another god with God; there is no god but He. Everything is perishable, except His face; His is the judgment, and unto Him you shall be returned.
