Moses - (Musa)




And We saved you from the people of Pharaoh,

they were afflicting you with the worst punishment;

they used to slaughter your children, and rape your women.

In that was a great test from your Lord.

And We parted the sea for you, thus We saved you and drowned the people of Pharaoh while you were watching.

And We appointed a meeting time for Moses of forty nights,

but then you took the calf after him while you were wicked.

Then We forgave you after that, perhaps you would be thankful. And We gave Moses the Book and the criterion,

perhaps you would be guided.


And Moses said to his people:

“O my people, you have wronged your souls by taking the calf,

so repent to your Maker, and kill yourselves. That is better for you with your Maker, so He would forgive you.

He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”


And you said:

“O Moses, we will not believe you until we see God openly!”


So the lightning strike took you while you were still staring.

Then We resurrected you after your death that you may be thankful. And We shaded you with clouds, and sent down to you manna and quails:


“Eat from the goodness of the provisions We have provided you.”


They did not wrong Us, but it was their souls that they wronged.

And We said:

“Enter this town, and eat from it as you wish bountifully.

And enter the passageway by crouching,

and say:

“Our load is removed,”

so that your wrongdoings will be forgiven, and We will increase for the good doers.”


But the wicked altered what was said to them to a different saying, thus We sent down upon the wicked an affliction

from the heavens for what wickedness they were in.

And Moses was seeking water for his people,


so we said:

“Strike the stone with your staff.”


Thus twelve springs exploded out of it; each people then knew from where to drink.


“Eat and drink from the provisions of God, and do not roam the earth as corrupters.”


And you said:

“O Moses, we will not be patient to one type of food,

so call for us your Lord that He may bring forth what the earth grows of its beans, cucumbers, garlic, lentils, and onions.”


He said:

“Would you trade that which is lowly with that which is good?”

Descend Egypt,  you will have in it what you have asked for.


And they were stricken with humiliation and disgrace,

and they remained under the wrath of God for they were disbelieving in the revelations of God, and killing the prophets without right; this is for what they have disobeyed and transgressed. Surely those who believe; and those who are Jewish, and the Nazarenes, and the Sabians, whoever of them believes in God and the Last Day and does good works; they will have their recompense with their Lord, and there is no fear upon them, nor will they grieve.


And We took your covenant, and raised the mount above you:


“Take what We have given you with strength, and remember what is in it that you may be righteous.”


Then you turned away after this.

And had it not been for the grace of God upon you and His mercy, you would have been of the losers.

You have come to know who it was among you that transgressed the Sabbath,


We said to them:

“Be despicable apes!”


So it was that We made it into an example for what had happened in it and also what had passed, and a reminder to the righteous.


And Moses said to his people:

“God orders you to slaughter a heifer.”


They said:

“Do you mock us?”


He said:

“I seek refuge with God that I not be of the ignorant ones.”


They said:

“Call upon your Lord for us that He may clarify which it is.”


He said:

“He says it is a heifer neither too old nor too young,

an age between that. So now do as you are commanded.”


They said:

“Call upon your Lord for us that He may clarify what color it is.”


He said:

“He says it is a yellow heifer with a strong color,  pleasing to those who see it.”


They said:

“Call upon your Lord for us that He may clarify which one it is,

for the heifers all look alike to us and we will, God willing, be guided.”


He said:

“He says it is a heifer which was never subjugated to plough the land, or water the crops, free from any blemish.”


They said:

“Now you have come with the truth.”


And they slaughtered it, though they had nearly not done so.

And you had murdered a person, then disputed in the matter;

God was to bring out what you were keeping secret.


We said:

“Strike him with parts from it.”


It is thus that God brings the dead to life, and He shows you His signs that you may comprehend. Then your hearts became hardened after that, they became like stone or even harder;

but even from stone there are rivers that burst forth,

and from them are those that crack so that the water comes forth, and from them are what descends from concern towards God; and God is not unaware of what you do.





And We gave Moses the Book, and after him We sent the messengers. And We gave Jesus, son of Mary, the clear proofs, and We supported him with the Holy Spirit.

Is it that every time a messenger comes to you with what your souls do not desire, you become arrogant?

A group of them you deny, and a group of them you kill!





And Moses had come to you with clear proofs,

then you took the calf after him; you were wicked!

And We took your covenant, and raised the mount above you:


“Take what We have given you with strength, and listen.”


They said:

“We hear and disobey!”


And they had consumed the calf inside their hearts by their disbelief.



“Miserable indeed is what your belief orders of you if you are believers!”



Or do you want to ask your messenger as Moses was asked before? Whoever replaces belief with rejection, he has indeed strayed from the right path.




“We believe in God and in what was sent down to us

and what was sent down to Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the Patriarchs, and what was given to Moses and Jesus, and what was given to the prophets from their Lord; we do not make a distinction between any of them 

and to Him we submit.”





The people of the Book ask you to bring down to them a book from the heaven. They had asked Moses for even more than that,

for they said:

“Show us God openly!”


So the lightning strike took them for their wickedness.

Then they took the calf after the clarity had come to them,

and We pardoned them for this; We gave Moses a clear authority. And We raised the mount above them by the covenant they took,


and We said to them:

“Enter the passageway by crouching.”


And We said to them:

“Do not transgress the Sabbath;”


and We took from them a solemn covenant. So, for the breaking of their covenant, and their rejection of the revelations of God, and their killing of the prophets without right,

and their saying:

“Our hearts are shielded.”


Indeed, God has stamped upon their hearts because of their rejection; they do not believe, except for a few.





And messengers of whom We have told to you from before,

and messengers We have not told to you; and God spoke to Moses directly.





God has taken the covenant of the Children of Israel

and raised from them twelve representatives,

and God said:

“I am with you if you hold the contact prayer, and contribute towards purification, and believe in My messengers, and support them, and lend God a loan of righteousness; then I will cancel your sins and admit you into estates with rivers flowing beneath them.” Whoever rejects after this from you, then he has strayed from the path.




And Moses said to his people:

“My people, remember the grace of God upon you

that he made among you prophets, and made you kings,

and he gave you what He had not given any from the worlds.”

“O my people, enter the holy land that God Has decreed for you, and do not turn your backs, or you will become losers.”


They said:

“O Moses,

in it are a mighty people, and we will not enter it until they leave from it. So when they leave from it, then we will enter.”


Two men from among those who were fearing,

upon whom God had bestowed favor, said:

“Enter upon them through the gate, if you enter it then you will be the victors; and put your trust in God if you are believers.”


They said:

“O Moses, we will never enter it as long as they are in it,

so go you and your Lord and fight, we will stay right here!”


He said:

“My Lord, I do not possess except myself and my brother,

so separate between us and between the wicked people.”


He said:

“It has become restricted to them for forty years,

and they will be lost in the land. Do not be sorrowful over the wicked people.”





And We granted him Isaac and Jacob, both of whom We guided; and Noah We guided from before; and from his progeny is David, and Solomon, and Job, and Joseph, and Moses, and Aaron. It is such that We recompense the good doers.





And they did not appreciate God as He deserves to be appreciated,

for they said:

“God has never sent down anything to any human being.”



“Who then has sent down the Book which Moses had come with, a light and a guidance for the people?

You treat it simply as paper for display, and you conceal much; and you were taught what neither you nor your fathers knew.”



“God has.”


Then leave them playing in their folly.





Then We gave Moses the Book, to complete for those who do right, and to fully detail all things, and a guide and mercy

that they may believe in the meeting of their Lord.





Then after them We sent Moses with Our signs 

to Pharaoh and his commanders. But they did wrong in them, so see how is the end of the corrupters.


And Moses said:

“O Pharaoh, I am a messenger from the Lord of the worlds.”

“It is not proper for me to say about God except the truth;

I have come to you with a proof from your Lord. So send with me the Children of Israel.”


He said:

“If you have come with a sign then bring it, if you are of the truthful?”


He threw down his staff and it manifested into a serpent.

And he drew out his hand, and it became pure white for the onlookers.


The commanders from among the people of Pharaoh said:

“This is a knowledgeable magician! He wishes to drive you out of your land; what is your command?”


They said:

“Delay him and his brother, and send gatherers to the cities.”

“They will come to you with every knowledgeable magician.”


And the magicians came to Pharaoh, they said:

“We require a reward if we are the victors.”


He said:

“Yes, and you will be made close to me.”


They said:

“O Moses, either you cast, or we will cast?”


He said:

“You cast.”


So when they cast, they bewitched the eyes of the people,

and instilled terror in them, and they came with a great magic.


And We inspired Moses:

“Throw down your staff”


and it swallowed what they invented. Thus the truth was set, and what they did was made of no effect.

They were thus defeated there and then, and they turned in disgrace. And the magicians went down prostrating.


They said:

“We believe in the Lord of the worlds.” “The Lord of Moses and Aaron.”


Pharaoh said:

“Have you become believers before I have given you permission? This is surely some scheme which you have schemed in the city to drive its people out; you will reveal what you know.” “I will cut off your hands and feet from alternate sides, then I will crucify you all.”


They said:

“It is to our Lord that we will return.” “And you are only seeking revenge on us because we believed in the signs of our Lord when they came to us. Our Lord, provide us with patience, and let us die as submitters.”


And the commanders from among the people of Pharaoh said:

“Will you let Moses and his people corrupt the land,

and abandon you and your gods?”


He said:

“We will kill their children and rape their women; we will be supreme over them.”


Moses said to his people:

“Seek help with God, and be patient; the earth is for God,

He will inherit it to whom He pleases of His servants; and the ending will be for the righteous."


They said:

“We were being harmed before you came to us and since you have come to us.”


He said:

“Perhaps your Lord will destroy your enemy, and make you successors in the land, so He sees how you work?”


And We afflicted the people of Pharaoh with years of drought,

and a shortage in crops, perhaps they would remember.

When any good came to them, they said:

“This is ours,”


and when any bad afflicted them, they blamed it on Moses and those with him. Their blame is with God, but most of them do not know.


And they said:

“No matter what you bring us of a sign to bewitch us with,

we will never believe in you.”


So We sent them

the flood, and the locust, and the lice, and the frogs, and the blood; all detailed signs; but they turned arrogant, they were a criminal people. And when the plague befell them,


they said:

“O Moses, call on your Lord for what He has pledged with you,

that if you remove this plague from us, then we will believe in you and we will send with you the Children of Israel.”



So when We removed from them the plague until a future time;

they broke their pledge. We thus took vengeance upon them by drowning them in the sea, for their denial of Our signs, and their disregard of them. And We let the people who were weak inherit the east of the land and the west of it which We have blessed. And the good word of your Lord was completed towards the Children of Israel for their patience;

and We destroyed what Pharaoh and his people were doing,

and what they contrived. And We let the Children of Israel cross the sea, then they came upon a people who were devoted to statues made for them;


they said:

“O Moses, make for us a god like they have gods?”


He said:

“You are an ignorant people! These people are ruined for what they are in, and evil is what they do.”


He said:

“Shall I seek other than God as a god for you when He has preferred you over the worlds?”


And We had saved you from the people of Pharaoh, they were afflicting you with the worst punishment; they used to kill your children and rape your women; and in that was a great test from your Lord.


And We appointed for Moses thirty nights and completed them with ten, so the appointed time of his Lord was completed at forty nights.


And Moses said to his brother Aaron:

“Be my successor with my people and be upright, and do not follow the path of the corrupters.”


So when Moses came to Our appointed time, and his Lord spoke to him,


he said:

“My Lord, let me look upon you.”


He said:

“You will not see Me, but look upon the mountain, if it stays in its place then you will see Me.”


So when his Lord revealed Himself to the mountain, He caused it to crumble; thus Moses fell unconscious. When he awoke,


he said:

“Glory to You, I repent to You and I am the first of those who believe.”


He said:

“O Moses, I have chosen you over the people with My message and My words; so take what I have given you and be of the thankful.”


And We wrote for him on the tablets from all things a lesson,

and detailing all things.


“Take it with strength and order your people to take the best from it. I will show you the abode of the wicked.

I will turn away from My revelations those who are arrogant on the earth without right, and if they see every sign they do not believe in it, and if they see the path of guidance they do not take it as a path; and if they see the path of mischief, they take it as a path. That is because they have denied Our revelations and were heedless of them. And those who deny Our revelations and the meeting of the Hereafter,

their works have collapsed. Will they not be recompensed except for what they used to do?”


And the people of Moses, in his absence, made from their ornaments  a sculpture of a calf that emitted a cry.

Did they not see that it could not speak to them, nor guide them to any way? They took it and they were wicked.

And when they realized what their hands had done,

and they saw that they had gone astray, 


they said:

“If our Lord will not have mercy on us and forgive us,

then we will be of the losers!”


And when Moses returned to his people, angry and grieved, 

he said:

“Miserable is what you have done after I was gone; do you wish to hasten the action of your Lord?”


And he cast down the tablets,

and took his brother by his head dragging him towards him. 

He said:

“Son of my mother, the people overpowered me and nearly killed me, so do not make the enemies rejoice over me, and do not make me with the wicked people.”


He said:

“My Lord, forgive me and my brother, and admit us in Your mercy; and you are the Most Merciful of those who show mercy.”


Those who took the calf will be dealt with a wrath from their Lord and a humiliation in this worldly life. It is such that We punish the fabricators. As for those who commit sin but then repent afterwards and believe; your Lord after that is Forgiving, Merciful. And when the anger subsided from Moses, he took the tablets; and in its inscription was a guidance and a mercy for those who reverence their Lord.

And Moses selected from his people seventy men for Our appointed time; so when the earthquake seized them,

he said:

“My Lord, if You wished You could have destroyed them before this, and me as well. Will you destroy us for what the foolish among us have done? It is all Your test, You misguide with it whom You please and You guide with it whom You please.

You are our Supporter, so forgive us and have mercy on us;

You are the Best Forgiver.”

“And decree for us good in this world, and in the Hereafter;

we have been guided towards You.”


He said:

“My punishment, I afflict with it whom I chose, and My mercy encompasses all things. I will thus decree it for those who are aware and contribute towards purification, and those who believe in Our revelations.” “Those who follow the Gentile messenger prophet whom they find written for them in the Torah and the Gospel; he orders them to kindness, and prohibits them from vice, and he makes lawful for them the good things, and he makes unlawful for them the evil things,

and he removes their burden and the shackles that are upon them. So those who believe in him, and support him, and help him persevere, and follow the light that was sent down with him; these are the successful ones.”


“O people, I am a messenger of God to you all.

The One who has the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth, there is no god except He; He gives life and causes death.  So believe in God and His Gentile messenger prophet,

who believes in God and His words; and follow him that you may be guided."


And from among the people of Moses

are a nation who guide with the truth and with it they become just. And We separated them into twelve patriarch nations;

and We inspired Moses when his people wanted to drink:

“Strike the stone with your staff,”


thus twelve springs burst out of it. Each people then knew from where to drink. And We shaded them with clouds

and We sent down to them manna and quail:


“Eat from the good things that We have provided for you.”


They did not wrong Us, but it was their souls that they wronged.


And they were told:

“Reside in this town and eat from it as you please,

and say:

“Our load is removed,”

and enter the passageway by crouching, We will forgive for you your wrongdoings,  and We will increase for the good doers.”


Those who were transgressors among them altered what was said to them with something different; so We sent to them an affliction from the heaven for what transgression they were in.

And ask them about the town which was by the sea,

after they had transgressed the Sabbath; their fish would come to them openly on the day of their Sabbath, and when they are not in Sabbath, they do not come to them!

It is such that We afflicted them for what wickedness they were in.


And a nation from among them said:

“Why do you preach to a people whom God will destroy or punish a painful retribution?”


They said:

“A plea to your Lord, and perhaps they may be aware.”


So when they forgot that which they were reminded of,

We saved those who prohibited wickedness, and We took those who transgressed with a grievous retribution for what wickedness they were in. So when they persisted in that which they had been prohibited from,

We said to them:

“Be despicable apes!”


And your Lord has sworn that He will send upon them,

until the Day of Resurrection, people who would inflict severe punishments on them. Your Lord is swift to punish, and He is Forgiving, Merciful. And We divided them through the land as nations. From them are the upright, and from them are other than that. And We tested them with good things and bad,

perhaps they will return.  Then, a generation came after them who inherited the Book, but they opted for the materialism of that which is lower;

and they say:

“It will be forgiven for us.”


And they continue to opt for the materialism if it comes to them; was not the covenant of the Book taken on them that they would only say the truth about God, and they studied what was in it? And the abode of the Hereafter is better for those who are aware. Do you not comprehend?

As for those who hold fast to the Book, and they hold the contact prayer; We will not waste the reward of the righteous.

And We raised the mountain above them as if it were a cloud,

and they thought it would fall on them:

“Take what We have given you with strength

and remember what is in it that you may be righteous.”





Like the behavior of the people of Pharaoh,

and those before them; they rejected the signs of God,

so God took them by their sins. God is Strong, severe in punishment. That is because God was not to change any blessing He bestowed upon a people, unless they change what is in themselves. God is Hearer, Knowledgeable.




Then, after them, We sent Moses and Aaron with Our signs to Pharaoh and his leaders, but they turned arrogant, they were a criminal people. So when the truth came to them from Us, they said:

“This is clearly magic!”


Moses said:

“Would you say this about the truth when it came to you? Is this magic? The magicians will not be successful.”


They said:

“Have you come to us to turn us away from that which we found our fathers upon, and so that you two would have greatness in the land? We will not believe in you.”


And Pharaoh said:

“Bring me every knowledgeable magician.”


So, when the magicians came, Moses said to them:

“Cast what you will cast.”


So when they cast, Moses said:

“What you have brought is magic, God will disable it. God does not set right the works of the corrupters.” “And so that God will set the truth with His words, even if the criminals hate it.”


But none believed in Moses from his people except some from their descendants, because of their fear from Pharaoh and his commanders that he would persecute them.

Pharaoh was high in the land, and he was of the tyrants.


And Moses said:

“O my people, if you believe in God, then put your trust in Him if you have submitted.”


They said:

“In God we put our trust. Our Lord, do not make us a test for the wicked people.” “And save us by Your mercy from the rejecting people.”


And We inspired to Moses and his brother:

“Let your people leave their homes in Egypt, and let these homes be your focal point, and hold the contact prayer.

And give good news to the believers.”


And Moses said:

“Our Lord, you have given Pharaoh and his commanders adornments and wealth in this worldly life so that they will misguide from Your path. Our Lord, wipe out their wealth and bring grief to their hearts; for they will not believe until they see the painful retribution.”


He said:

“Your call has been responded to, so keep straight and do not follow the path of those who do not know.”


And We helped the Children of Israel cross the sea, and Pharaoh and his soldiers followed them out of hatred and animosity. But when he was certain to drown, 

he said:

“I believe that there is no god except the One in whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am of those who have submitted.”


“Now you say this? While before you disobeyed and were of the corrupters! This day, We will preserve your body,

so that you become a sign for those after you.”


But most of the people are unaware of Our signs! And We helped the Children of Israel reach a place of sanctity, and We provided them from the good things, and they did not differ until the knowledge came to them. Your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection for what they differed in.





And We sent Moses with Our signs:

“You shall bring your people out of the darkness and into the light, and remind them of the days of God.”


In this are signs for everyone patient and thankful.


And Moses said to his people:

“Remember the blessings of God upon you that He saved you from the people of Pharaoh; they were afflicting you with the worst punishment, and they used to slaughter your children, and rape your women. And in that was a great test from your Lord.”


And your Lord proclaimed:

“If you give thanks, I will increase for you, but if you are rejecting, then My retribution is severe.”


And Moses said:

“If you reject, you and all who are on the earth together, then know that God is Rich, Praiseworthy.”




And We gave Moses the Book and We made it a guidance for the Children of Israel:

“Do not believe in any besides Me.”





And We had given Moses nine clear signs. So ask the Children of Israel, when he came to them, 

then Pharaoh said:

“I think that you Moses are bewitched!”


He said:

“You know that no one has sent these down except for the Lord of the heavens and the earth as visible proofs. And I think that you Pharaoh are doomed!”


So he wanted to entice them out of the land. But We drowned him and all those with him.


And We said after him to the Children of Israel:

“Dwell on the earth, then, when the time of the second promise comes, We will bring you all together as a mixed crowd.”




And Moses said to his youth:

“I will not stop until I reach the junction of the two seas, or I spend a lifetime trying.”


But when they reached the junction that was in-between,

they forgot their fish, and it was able to make its way back to the sea in a stream. And when they passed further on, he said to his youth:

“Bring us our lunch; we have found much fatigue in this journey of ours.”


He said:

“Do you remember when we rested upon the rock?

I forgot the fish,  and it was the devil who made me forget to remember it. It made its way back to the sea amazingly!”


He said:

“That is what we have been seeking!”


So they went back retracing their steps. So they came upon a servant of Ours whom We had given him mercy from Us

and We had taught him knowledge from Us.


Moses said to him:

“Can I follow you so that you will teach me from the guidance you have been taught?”


He said:

“You will not be able to have patience with me.” “And how can you be patient about that which you have not been given any news?”


He said:

“You will find me, God willing, to be patient. And I will not disobey any command of yours.”


He said:

“If you follow me, then do not ask about anything until I relate it to you.”


So they ventured forth until they rode in a boat and he made a hole in it.


He said:

“Have you made a hole in it to drown its people? You have done something dreadful!”


He said:

“Did I not tell you that you will not be able to have patience with me?”


He said:

“Forgive me for what I forgot, and do not be hard upon my request with you.”


So they ventured forth until they came upon a youth, and he killed him.


He said:

“Have you killed an innocent person without justice? You have done something awful!”


He said:

“Did I not tell you that you will not be able to have patience with me?”


He said:

“If I ask you about anything after this,  then do not keep me in your company. You will then have a reason over me.”


So they ventured forth until they came to the people of a town.

They requested food from its people but they refused to host them. Then they found a wall which was close to collapsing, so he built it.


He said:

“If you had wished, you could have asked a wage for it!”


He said:

“For this, we will now part ways.  I will inform you of the meanings of those things that you could not have patience over.”

“As for the boat,  it belonged to some poor people who were working the sea, so I wanted to damage it as there was a king coming who takes every boat by force.”

“And as for the youth, his parents were believers, so we were concerned that he would oppress them by his transgression and disbelief. So we wanted their Lord to replace for them

with one who is better than him in purity and closer to mercy.”

“And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphaned boys in the city, and underneath it was a treasure for them, and their father was a good man, so your Lord wanted that they reach their independence and bring out their treasure as a mercy from your Lord. And none of what I have done was of my own accord. That is the meaning of what you could not have patience for.”




And recall in the Book,

Moses; he was loyal, and he was a messenger prophet.

And We called him from the right side of the mount,

and We brought him close to talk with.

And We granted him from Our mercy his brother Aaron as a prophet.




And did the narrative of Moses come to you? When he saw a fire,

he said to his family:

“Stay here, I have seen a fire, perhaps I can bring a piece from it, or find at the fire some guidance.”


So when he came to it he was called:

“O Moses.” “I am your Lord, so take off your slippers;

you are in the holy valley Tuwa.” “And I have chosen you, so listen to what is being inspired.” “I am God,  there is no god except Me, so serve Me and hold the contact prayer for My remembrance.” “The Hour is coming, I am nearly keeping it hidden, so that every soul will be recompensed with what it strived.” “So do not be deterred from it by he who does not believe in it and followed his desire and perished.”

“And what is in your right hand O Moses?”


He said:

“It is my staff, I lean on it, and I guide my sheep with it, and I have other uses in it.”


He said:

“Cast it down O Moses.”


So he cast it down, and it became a moving serpent! 

He said:

“Take it and do not be fearful, We will turn it back to its previous form.” “And place your hand under your arm, it will come out white without blemish, as another sign.” “This is to show you Our great signs.”

“Go to Pharaoh, for he has transgressed.”


He said:

“My Lord, comfort for me my chest.” “And make my mission easy. And remove the knot in my tongue. So they can understand what I say. And allow for me an advisor from my family. Aaron, my brother. So that I may strengthen my resolve through him. And share with him my mission. So that we may glorify You plenty. And remember You plenty. You Have been seer over us.”


He said:

“You have been given what you asked O Moses. And We have graced you another time. When We inspired to your mother what was inspired. That she should cast him in the basket, and cast the basket in the sea, so the sea will place him on the shore, where an enemy of Mine and his will take him. And I placed upon you a love from Me. And that you shall be raised under My eye. That your sister should follow,  and say:

‘Shall I guide you to a person who will nurse him.’


Thus We returned you to your mother, so that she may be pleased and not be sad. And you killed a person, 

but We saved you from harm and We tested you greatly.

So it was that you stayed with the people of Midyan for many years, then you came here by fate O Moses. And I Have raised you for Myself. Go, you and your brother with Our signs, and do not linger from My remembrance. Go, both of you, to Pharaoh, for he has transgressed. So say to him soft words, perhaps he will remember or be concerned.”


They said:

“Our Lord, we fear that he would let loose upon us, or transgress.”


He said:

“Do not fear, I am with you, I hear and I see.” So come to him and say:

“We are messengers from your Lord, so send with us the Children of Israel, and do not punish them. We have come to you with a sign from your Lord, and peace be upon those who follow the guidance. It has been inspired to us that the retribution will be upon he who denies and turns away.”

He said:

“So who is the lord of you both O Moses?”


He said:

“Our Lord is the One who gave everything its creation, then guided.”


He said:

“What then has happened to the previous generations?”


He said:

“The knowledge of it is with my Lord, in a record. My Lord does not err or forget."


The One who made for you the earth habitable and He made ways for you in it, and He brought down water from the sky, so We brought out with it pairs of vegetation of all types.

Eat and raise your livestock, in that are signs for those of thought. From it We created you and in it We return you,

and from it We bring you out another time.


And We showed him Our signs, all of them, but he denied and refused.

He said:

“Have you come to us to take us out of our land  with your magic O Moses? We will bring you a magic like it,

so let us make an appointment between us and you

which neither of us will break, a place where we both agree.”


He said:

“Your appointment is the day of festival, and when the people start crowding during the late morning.”


So Pharaoh went away, and he gathered his plan then he came.


Moses said to them:

“Woe to you, do not invent lies about God, else the retribution will take you, and miserable is the one who invents.”


So they disputed in their matter between themselves, and they kept private their counsel.


They said:

“These are but two magicians who want to take you out of your land with their magic, and they want to do away with your ideal way. So agree your plan, then come as one front.

Whoever wins today will succeed.”


They said:

“O Moses, either you cast down or we will be the first to cast down.”


He said:

“You cast down.”


So their ropes and staffs appeared from their magic as if they were moving. And Moses held some fear in himself.


We said:

“Do not fear, you will best them. And cast down what is in your right hand it will consume what they have made.

They have only made the plans of a magician, and the magician will not succeed no matter what he does.”


So the magicians went down in prostration.


They said:

“We believe in the Lord of Aaron and Moses.”


He said:

“Have you believed to him before taking my permission? He is surely your great one who has taught you magic. So, I will cut off your hands and feet from alternate sides, and I will crucify you on the trunks of the palm trees, and you will come to know which of us is greater in retribution and more lasting!”



They said:

“We will not prefer you over the proofs that have come to us,

and over the One who initiated us. So issue whatever judgment you have, for you only issue judgment in this worldly life. We have believed in our Lord that He may forgive us our wrongdoings, and what you had forced us into doing of magic;

and God is better and more lasting.”


He who comes to his Lord as a criminal, he will have Hell,

where he will neither die in it nor live. And he who comes to Him as a believer doing good works, for those will be the highest ranks. Gardens of delight, with rivers flowing beneath them, abiding therein. Such is the reward of he who is developed.


And We inspired to Moses:

“Take My servants out,  and strike for them a path through the sea that is dry. You shall not fear being overtaken, nor be concerned.”


So Pharaoh followed them with his soldiers, but the sea came over them and covered them. Thus, Pharaoh misled his people and he did not guide. O Children of Israel, We have saved you from your enemy, and We summoned you at the right side of the mount, and We sent down to you manna and quail.

Eat from the good things that We have provided for you

and do not transgress in this else My wrath will be upon you.

Whoever has incurred My wrath is lost. And I am forgiving for whoever repents and does good works, then is guided.


“And what has caused you to rush ahead of your people O Moses?”


He said:

“They are coming in my tracks, and I came quickly to you my Lord so you would be pleased.”


He said:

“We have tested your people after you left, and the Sumerian misguided them.”


So Moses returned to his people angry and disappointed.


He said:

“My people, did not your Lord promise you a good promise?

Has the waiting for the pledge been too long, or did you want that the wrath of your Lord be upon you? Thus you broke the promise with me.”


They said:

“We did not break the promise by our own will, but we were loaded down with the jewelry of the people so we cast them down, and it was such that the Sumerian suggested.”


He then produced for them a sculpture of a calf that emitted a cry.

So they said:

“This is your god and the god of Moses, but he had forgotten!”


Did they not see that it did not respond to them? Nor did it possess for them any harm or benefit?


And Aaron said to them before:

“My people, you are being tested with it. Your Lord is the Almighty, so follow me and obey my command!”


They said:

“We will remain devoted to it until Moses comes back to us.”


He said:

“O Aaron, what prevented you when you saw them being astray? Do you not follow me? Have you disobeyed my command?”


He said:

“O son of my mother, do not grab me by my beard nor by my head. I was concerned that you would say that I separated between the Children of Israel, and that I did not follow your orders.”


He said:

“So what do you have to say O Sumerian?”


He said:

“I noticed what they did not notice, so I took a handful from where the messenger was standing, and I cast it in. This is what my soul inspired me to do.”


He said:

“Then be gone, for you will have it in this life to say:

“I am not to be touched”

And you will have an appointed time which you will not forsake. And look to your god that you remained devoted to,

we will burn him, then we will destroy him in the sea completely.”


Surely your god is God; for which there is no god except He.

His knowledge encompasses all things. And it is such that We tell to you the news of what has passed.

And We have given you from Us a remembrance.

Al HAJJ-22



And the dwellers of Midyan; and Moses was denied.

So I granted respite to the rejecters then I took them,

how then was My punishment?




Then We sent Moses and his brother Aaron with Our signs and a clear authority. To Pharaoh and his commanders.

But they became arrogant, for they were a high and mighty people.


So they said:

“Shall we believe to two human beings like us, while their people are servants to us?”


So they denied them, and they became of those who were destroyed. And We have given Moses the Book, so that they may be guided.



And We gave Moses the Book

and We made his brother Aaron a minister with him.


So We said:

“Go both of you to the people who have denied Our signs.”


So We then destroyed them utterly.




And when your Lord called to Moses:

“Go to the people who are wicked. The people of Pharaoh. Will they not be righteous?”


He said:

“My Lord, I fear that they would deny me. And my chest would become tight, and my tongue would not be able to express; so send for Aaron. And they have charges of a crime against me,

so I fear they will kill me.”


He said:

“Indeed not! Go both of you with Our signs. I am with you listening. So both of you go to Pharaoh and say:

‘We are messengers of the Lord of the worlds. So send with us the Children of Israel’


He said:

“Did we not raise you among us as a new born, and you stayed with us for many of your years? And you did that deed you did, and you are of the rejecters.”


He said:

“I did it, and I was of those misguided. So I ran away from you all, for I feared you. So my Lord granted me judgment, and made me of the messengers. And is it a favor that you taunt me with, so you could continue to enslave the Children of Israel?”


Pharaoh said:

“And what is the Lord of the worlds?”


He said:

“The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, if you are aware.”


He said to those around him:

“Do you hear that?”


He said:

“Your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of old!”


He said:

“This messenger of yours who has been sent to you is crazy!”


He said:

“The Lord of the east and the west, and what is between them, if you comprehend.”


He said:

“If you take a god other than me, then I will put you among the prisoners.”


He said:

“What if I brought you proof?”


He said:

“Then bring it forth if you are of the truthful ones.”


So he cast his staff, then it manifested into a serpent. And he drew out his hand, then it became white to the onlookers.


He said to the commanders around him:

“This is a knowledgeable magician! He wants to bring you out of your land with his magic. So what will you decide?”


They said:

“Delay him and his brother, and send gatherers to the cities.”

“They will come to you with every knowledgeable magician.”


So the magicians were gathered to an appointed day.


And it was said to the people:

“Will you also gather? Perhaps we can follow the magicians if they are the winners.”


So when the magicians came, they said to Pharaoh:

“We should be rewarded if we are the winners.”


He said:

“Yes, and you shall also be near to me.”


Moses said to them:

“Cast down what it is you will cast.”


So they cast down their ropes and staffs and they said:

“By the might of Pharaoh, we will be the winners.”


So Moses cast down his staff,  then it was eating-up all that they showed! So the magicians went down prostrating.


They said:

“We believe in the Lord of the worlds! The Lord of Moses and Aaron.”


He said:

“Have you believed unto him before I permitted you? He is surely your great one who has taught you magic. So you shall come to know, I will cut off your hands and feet from alternate sides, and I will crucify you all.”


They said:

“There is no worry, for we are all returning to our Lord. We hope that our Lord will forgive us our wrongdoings, as we are the first to believe.”


And We inspired Moses:

“Take away My servants, for you will be followed.”


So Pharaoh sent gatherers to the cities.

“These are but a small band. And they have done what has enraged us. And we are all gathered and forewarned.”


So, We evicted them out of gardens and springs. And treasures and an honorable station. As such, We gave it to the Children of Israel. So they were pursued at sunrise. But when the two groups saw each other,

the companions of Moses said:

“We are caught!”


He said:

“No, my Lord is with me and He will guide me.”


So We inspired to Moses:

“Strike the sea with your staff.”


So it split into two, each side like a great mountain. And We then brought them to the other side. And We saved Moses and all those with him. Then We drowned the others. In that is a sign, but most of them are not believers. And your Lord is the Noble, the Merciful.



And Moses said to his family:

“I have seen a fire, I will bring you from there some news or I will bring you a burning piece so that you may be warmed.”


So when he came to it he was called:

“Blessed is the One at the fire and whoever is around it, and glory to God, Lord of the worlds.”


“O Moses, it is I God, the Noble, the Wise. And throw down your staff.”


So when he saw it vibrate as if it were a Jinn, he ran away and would not turn back.


“O Moses, do not fear, for My messengers shall have no fear from Me. Except he who has done wrong. But then if he replaces the evil deed with good, then I am Forgiving, Merciful. And place your hand into your pocket; it will come out white with no blemish, one of nine signs to Pharaoh and his people; for they are a wicked people.”


So when Our signs came to them for all to see,

they said:

“This is clearly magic!”


And they rejected them, while their souls knew, out of transgression and arrogance. So see how it ended for the wicked.




Pharaoh became mighty in the land, and he turned its people into factions; he oppressed a group of them by killing their children and raping their women. He was of those who corrupted. And We wanted to help those who were oppressed in the land, and to make them leaders, and to make them the inheritors. And to enable them in the land, and to show Pharaoh and Haamaan and their troops what they had feared.


And We inspired to Moses’ mother:

“Suckle him, and when you become fearful for him, then cast him off in the sea, and do not fear nor grieve. We will return him to you and We will make him of the messengers.”


Then the family of Pharaoh picked him up, so he would be an enemy to them and a source of sadness. Certainly, Pharaoh and Haamaan and their troops were wrongdoers.


And the wife of Pharaoh said:

“A pleasure to my eye and yours, so do not kill him, perhaps he will benefit us or we may take him as a son;

while they did not perceive.


And the heart of Moses’ mother became anxious, that she nearly revealed her identity. But We strengthened her heart, so that she would be of the believers.


And she said to his sister:

“Follow his path.”


So she watched him from afar, while they did not notice. And We forbade him from accepting all the nursing mothers.


Then his sister said:

“Shall I lead you to a household that can nurse him for you, and take good care of him?”


Thus, We returned him to his mother, so that she may be pleased and not be saddened, and to let her know that the promise of God is the truth. However, most of them do not know. And when he reached his independence and was established, We bestowed him with wisdom and knowledge.

We thus reward the good doers. And he entered the city unexpectedly, without being noticed by the people.

He found in it two men who were fighting, one was from his clan, and the other was from that of his enemy.

So the one who was from his clan called on him for help 

against his enemy, whereby Moses punched him, killing him.


He said:

“This is from the work of the devil; he is an enemy that clearly misleads.”


He said:

“My Lord, I have wronged my soul, so forgive me.”


He then forgave him, for He is the Forgiver, the Merciful.


He said:

“My Lord, for what blessings you have bestowed upon me,

I will never be a supporter for the criminals.”


So he spent the night in the city, afraid and watchful. Then the one who sought his help yesterday, was asking again for his help.


Moses said to him:

“You are clearly a trouble maker.”


But when he was about to strike their common enemy,

he said:

“O Moses, do you want to kill me, as you killed that person yesterday? Obviously, you wish to be a tyrant on the earth;

you do not wish to be of the righteous.”


And a man came running from the farthest part of the city,


“O Moses, the commanders are plotting to kill you, so leave immediately. I am giving you good advice.”


He exited the city, afraid and watchful.


He said:

“My Lord, save me from the wicked people.”


And as he traveled towards Midyan,

he said:

“Perhaps my Lord will guide me to the right path.”


When he arrived at the watering hole of Midyan, he found a crowd of people watering, and he found two women waiting on the side.


He said:

“What is holding you back.”


They said:

“We cannot draw water until the shepherds finish, and our father is an old man.”


So he drew water for them, then he turned to a shaded area,

and he said:

“My Lord, I am poor, lacking any provisions You may have sent down.”


So one of the two women approached him, shyly,

and said:

“My father invites you to reward you for watering for us.”


So when he came to him, and told to him the stories,

he said:

“Do not fear, for you have been saved from the wicked people.”


One of the two women said:

“O my father, hire him. For the best to be hired is one who is strong and honest.”


He said:

“I wish you to marry one of my two daughters, on condition that you work for me through eight pilgrimage periods;

if you complete them to ten, it will be voluntary on your part. I do not wish to make this matter too difficult for you. You will find me, God willing, of the righteous.”


He said:

“It is then an agreement between me and you. Whichever period I fulfill, you will not be averse to either one. And God is entrusted over what we said.”


So after Moses fulfilled his obligation and was traveling with his family, he saw a fire on the slope of the mount.


He said to his family:

“Stay here, I have seen a fire, perhaps I can bring you from there some news or a burning piece of the fire so that you may be warmed.”


So when he reached it, he was called from the edge of the right side of the valley  at the blessed area of the tree:

“O Moses, it is I, God, Lord of the worlds. Now, throw down your staff.”


So when he saw it vibrate as if it were a Jinn, he turned around to flee and would not return.


“O Moses, come forward and do not be afraid. You are of those who are safe. Place your hand into your pocket. It will come out white without any blemish, and fold your hand close to your side against fear. These are two proofs from your Lord,

to Pharaoh and his commanders; for they are a wicked people.”


He said:

“My Lord, I have killed a person from them,

so I fear that they will kill me.”

“And my brother Aaron is more eloquent in speech than I.

So send him with me to help and to confirm me.

For I fear that they will deny me.”


He said:

“We will strengthen you with your brother, and We will provide you both with authority. Thus, they will not be able to touch either one of you. With Our signs, the two of you, along with those who follow you, will be the victors.”


So when Moses went to them with Our clear signs,

they said:

“This is nothing but fabricated magic; nor did we hear of this from our fathers of old!”


And Moses said:

“My Lord is fully aware of who has come with the guidance from Him, and who will have the best deal in the Hereafter.

The wicked never succeed.”


And Pharaoh said:

“O commanders, I have not known of any god for you other than me. Therefore, O Haamaan, fire-up the bricks and make for me a high platform, so perhaps I may take a look at the god of Moses; though I think he is one of the liars.”


And he and his soldiers were arrogant in the land without any right, and they thought that they would not be returned to Us.

So We took him and his soldiers, and We cast them into the sea. So see how was the end of the wicked! We made them leaders, inviting to the Fire. And on the Day of Resurrection, they will not be supported. And We made them followed by a curse in this world, and on the Day of Resurrection they will be despised. We had given Moses the Book after We had destroyed the earlier generations; as an example for the people and a guidance and a mercy, perhaps they will take heed. And you were not on the western slope when We decreed the command to Moses. You were not a witness. And We established many generations, and many ages passed them by. And you were not living among the people of Midyan,

reciting Our revelations to them. But We were to send messengers. And nor were you on the side of the mount when We called. But it is a mercy from your Lord, so that you may warn a people who received no warner before you, perhaps they may take heed. Thus, if any disaster strikes them

as a consequence of their own deeds 

they cannot Say:

“Our Lord, if only You sent a messenger to us, so that we would follow Your revelations, and we would be of the believers.”


But when the truth came to them from Us, they said:

“If only he was given the same that was given to Moses!”


Had they not rejected what was given to Moses before?


They had said:

“Two magicians assisting one another.”


And they said:

“We reject all these things.”



“Then bring forth a book from God that is better than them in guidance so I may follow it, if you are truthful.”




And Qaroon, and Pharaoh, and Haamaan; Moses went to them with clear proofs. But they became arrogant in the land, and they were not the first. We took each by his sins. Some of them We sent upon him violent winds, some of them were taken by the scream, some of them We caused the earth to swallow, and some of them We drowned. God is not the One who wronged them; it is they who wronged themselves.



And We have given Moses the Book;

so do not be in any doubt about meeting Him;

and We made it a guide for the Children of Israel.




And when We took from the prophets their covenant.And from you, and from Noah, and Abraham,and Moses, and Jesus, son of Mary; We took from them a solemn covenant. So that the truthful may be asked about their truthfulness, and He has prepared for the rejecters a painful retribution.




And indeed, We have given Our grace to Moses and Aaron.

And We saved them and their people from the great disaster.

And We supported them, so that they became the winners.

And We gave both the clear Book. And We guided them to the straight path. And We kept their history for those who came later. Peace be upon Moses and Aaron. We thus reward the righteous. Both of them were among Our believing servants.



Disbelieving before them were the people of Noah, ‘Aad,

and Pharaoh with the planks. And Thamud, and the people of Lot, and the dwellers of the Canyon; these are the Confederates. Each of them disbelieved the messengers, therefore My retribution came to be.



To Pharaoh, Haamaan, and Qaroon.


But they said:

A lying magician!


Then, when the truth came to them from Us,


they said:

Kill the children of those who believed with him, and rape their women.


But the planning of the rejecters is always in error.


And Pharaoh said:

Leave me to kill Moses, and let him call upon his Lord.

I fear that he may change your system, or that he will cause evil to spread throughout the land.


And Moses said:

I seek refuge with my Lord and your Lord from every arrogant one who does not believe in the Day of Reckoning


And a believing man from among the people of Pharaoh, who had concealed his belief,


Will you kill a man simply for saying: My Lord is God, and he has come to you with proofs from your Lord? And if he is a liar, then his lie will be upon him, and if he is truthful, then some of what he is promising you will afflict you. For God does not guide any transgressor, liar. O my people, you have the kingship today throughout the land. But then who will save us against the torment of God, should it come to us?


Pharaoh said:

I am showing you that which I see, and I am guiding you in the right path.


And the one who believed said:

O my people, I fear for you the same fate as the day of the opponents. Like the fate of the people of Noah, Aad, and Thamud, and those after them. And God does not wish any injustice for the servants. And, O my people, I fear for you the Day of mutual blaming. A Day when you will turn around and flee, you will have no protector besides God,

and whoever God sends astray, then there is none who can guide him. And Joseph had come to you before with proofs,

but you remained in doubt regarding what he came to you with, until when he died,

you said:

God will not send any messenger after him.

It is such that God sends astray he who is a transgressor, doubter. Those who dispute about the revelations of God without any authority that has come to them, it is greatly abhorred with God and with those who believe.  God thus seals the hearts of every arrogant tyrant.


And Pharaoh said:

O Haamaan, build for me a high platform that I may uncover the secrets. The secrets of the heavens, so that I may take a look at the god of Moses; though I think he is a liar.


Thus the evil works of Pharaoh were adorned for him, and he was blocked from the path. And the planning of Pharaoh brought nothing but regret.


And the one who believed said:

O my people, follow me, and I will guide you to the right path.

O my people, this worldly life is but an enjoyment, while the Hereafter is the permanent abode. Whoever does a sin, will not be requited except for its equivalent, and whoever does good, whether male or female, and is a believer, then those will be admitted to the Paradise, where they will receive provision without reckoning. And, O my people, why is it that I invite you to salvation, while you invite me to the Fire! You invite me to reject God, and set up partners besides Him that I have no knowledge of, and I am inviting you to the Noble, the Forgiver. There is no doubt that what you invite me to has no basis in this world, nor in the Hereafter. And our ultimate return will be to God, and that the transgressors will be the dwellers of the Fire. You will come to remember what I am telling you, and I leave my affair in this matter to God; for God is the Seer of the servants.


So God protected him from the evil of what they schemed, while the people of Pharaoh have incurred the worst retribution.

The Fire, which they will be exposed to morning and evening,

and on the Day when the Hour is established: Admit the people of Pharaoh into the most severe of the retribution.

And when they argue in Hell,

the weak will say to those who were arrogant:

We used to be your followers, can you take from us any portion of the Fire?


Those who were arrogant will say:

We are all in it together, for God has passed judgment upon the servants.


And those who are in the Fire will say to the guardians of Hell:

Call upon your Lord to reduce for us the retribution, by just one day!


They will say:

Did your messengers not come to you with proofs?


They will say:



They will say:

Then implore,

but the imploring of the rejecters will be nothing but in vain.

We will indeed grant victory to Our messengers and to those who believed in the worldly life, and on the Day when the witnesses will rise. A Day when excuses will be of no help to the transgressors, and they will be cursed, and they will have the worst abode. And We gave Moses the guidance, and We made the Children of Israel inherit the Book. A guide and a reminder for those who possess intelligence. So be patient, for the promise of God is true, and seek forgiveness for your sin,

and glorify and praise your Lord evening and morning. Surely, those who dispute about the revelations of God without any authority given to them, there is nothing except arrogance in their chests, which they do not perceive. Therefore, seek refuge with God; He is the Hearer, the Seer.




He has decreed for you the same system. He ordained for Noah, and what We inspired to you, and what We ordained for Abraham, Moses, and Jesus:

You shall uphold this system, and do not divide in it.


Intolerable for the polytheists is what you invite them towards. God chooses for Himself whoever He wills; He guides to Himself those who repent. And they only divided after the knowledge had come to them, due to resentment among themselves. And had it not been for a predetermined decision from your Lord, they would have been judged immediately.

Indeed, those who inherited the Book after them are full of doubts.




And We sent Moses with Our signs to Pharaoh and his commanders;

so he said:

I am a messenger of the Lord of the worlds.


But when he came to them with Our signs, they laughed at them. And every sign We showed them was greater than the one before it, and We seized them with the torment, perhaps they would return.


And they said:

O you magician, call on your Lord for what pledge He gave you; we will then be guided.


But when We removed the torment from them, they broke their word.


And Pharaoh proclaimed among his people:

O my people, do I not possess the kingship of Egypt, and these rivers that flow below me? Do you not see? Am I not better than this one who is despised and he can barely be understood? Why then are not golden bracelets bestowed on him, or the angels are accompanying him?


He thus convinced his people, and they obeyed him; they were a wicked people. So when they persisted in opposing Us, We sought revenge from them, and drowned them all. We thus made them a thing of the past, and an example for the others.




And We had tested before them the people of Pharaoh, and an honorable messenger came to them. Restore to me the servants of God.


I am a trustworthy messenger to you. And, do not transgress against God. I come to you with clear authority. And I seek refuge with my Lord and your Lord, should you stone me.

And if you do not believe in me, then have no dealing with me.


Subsequently, he called on his Lord:

These are a criminal people.


You shall travel with My servants during the night; you will be pursued. And cross the sea quickly; their troops will be drowned.  How many gardens and springs did they leave behind? And crops and an honorable station?

And blessings that they enjoyed?

Thus it was; and We caused another people to inherit it.

Neither the heaven, nor the earth wept over them, and they were not respited. And We saved the Children of Israel from the humiliating agony. From Pharaoh; he was a transgressing tyrant. And We have chosen them, out of knowledge, over the worlds.




And before it was the Book of Moses, a beacon and a mercy. And this is an authenticating Book, in an Arabic tongue, so that you may warn those who have transgressed, and to give good news to the righteous.





And We directed to you a company of Jinn, in order to let them listen to the Quran. So when they arrived there, 

they said:

Pay attention.


Then, when it was finished, they returned to their people, to warn them.


They said:

O our people, we have heard a Book that was sent down after Moses, authenticating what is between his hands.

It guides to the truth; and to a straight path.




Before their denial was that of the people of Noah, and the dwellers of Al-Raas, and Thamud.

And Aad, and Pharaoh, and the brethren of Lot.

And the people of the forest, and the people of Tubba`.

All of them disbelieved the messengers,

so the promise came to pass.




And also Moses,

for We sent him to Pharaoh with a clear authority. But he and his camp turned away,

and said:

A magician, or crazy.


So We took him and his troops;

We cast them into the sea, and he was to blame.




Have you noted the one who turned away? And he gave very little, then he stopped. Did he possess knowledge of the future? Could he see it? Or was he not informed of the teachings in the scripts of Moses?




And We made the Quran easy to remember. Are there any who will learn? And the warnings had come to the people of Pharaoh. They rejected all Our signs.

So We took them, the taking of the Noble, the Able.




And when Moses said to his people:

O my people, why do you harm me, while you know that I am a messenger of God to you?


But when they deviated, God diverted their hearts.

And God does not guide the wicked people.




And God puts forth as an example of those who believed the wife of Pharaoh.

She said:

My Lord, build a home for me near You in the Paradise,

and save me from Pharaoh and his works;

and save me from the transgressing people.




And Pharaoh, and those before him, and the sinners, came with wrongdoing. They disobeyed the messenger of their Lord.

So He took them with a devastating requital.




Did the narrative of Moses come to you?


His Lord called him at the holy valley of Tuwa.

Go to Pharaoh, for he has transgressed.

Tell him:

Would you not be purified? And I will guide you to your Lord,

that you may be concerned.


He then showed him the great sign. But he disbelieved and rebelled. Then he turned away in a hurry.

So he gathered and proclaimed.


He said:

I am your lord, the most high.


So God seized him for punishment in the Hereafter, and for the first life. In that is a lesson for those who are concerned.




Has narrative of the soldiers come to you? Pharaoh and Thamud? No, those who rejected are in denial.

And God after them is encompassing.

No, it is a glorious Quran. In a tablet, preserved.




This has been revealed in the previous scripts.

The scripts of Abraham and Moses.




And Thamud who carved the rocks in the valley?

And Pharaoh with the planks? They all transgressed in the land. And made much corruption therein.

So your Lord poured upon them a measure of retribution.

Your Lord is ever watchful.
