20:1  Ta. Ha. *Chapter:2
20:2  We have not Sent down on thee the Qur'an that thou shouldst be distressed. *Chapter:2
20:3  But only as an admonition unto him who feareth. *Chapter:2
20:4  A down-sent from Him who Created the earth and the heavens high
20:5  The Compassionate on the Throne is established
20:6  His is whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever on the earth and - whatsoever is in-between. and whatsoever is underneath the earth
20:7  And if thou speakest the word aloud, then verily He knoweth the secret and the most hidden
20:8  Allah! no God there is but he! His are the names excellent
20:9  Hath there come unto thee the story of Musa
20:10  Recall what time he saw a fire and said to his household, bide ye! verily I have perceived a fire! haply I may bring you from it a brand or may find at the fire a guidance
20:11  Then when he was come thereto, he was cried unto. O Musa
20:12  Verily I! I am thy Lord: so take off thy shoes; verily thou art into the holy valley, Tuwa
20:13  And I! I have chosen thee hearken thou then to that which shall be revealed
20:14  Verily I! I am Allah! no God there is butI; so Worship Me, and establish prayer for My remembrance
20:15  Verily the Hour is coming--I wish to conceal it - in Order that every one may be requited according to that which he hath endeavoured
20:16  So let not him who believeth not therein and followeth his own desire keep thee away therefrom lest thou perish
20:17  And what is that in thy right hand, O Musa
20:18  He said: it is my staff; I lean there on; and therewith beat down fodder for my sheep; and for me therein are other purposes
20:19  Allah said: cast it down, O Musa
20:20  So he cast it down, and lo! it was a serpent running along
20:21  Allah said: take hold of it, and fear not; We shall restore it to its former state
20:22  And press thy hand to thy side, it will come forth white, without hurt, as anot her sign
20:23  That We may shew thee of Our Signs the greatest
20:24  Go thou unto Fir'awn; verily he hath waxen exorbitant
20:25  He said: my Lord! expand for me my breast
20:26  And ease for me by affair
20:27  And loose a knot from my tongue
20:28  That they may understand my Speech
20:29  And appoint for me a minister from my household
20:30  Harun, my brother
20:31  Strengthen by him my back
20:32  And associate him in my affair
20:33  That We may hallow Thee oft
20:34  And may make mention of Thee oft
20:35  Verily Thou! Thou art of us ever a Beholder
20:36  He said: surely thou art granted thy petition, O Musa
20:37  And assuredly We conferred a benefit on thee anot her time
20:38  When We inspired unto thy mother that which We inspired
20:39  Saying! cast him in the ark, and cast him into the river, and the river will throw him on the bank, and then an enemy of Mine and an enemy of his will take him up. And I cast on thee love from Me in order that thou mayest be formed under Mine eye
20:40  What time thy sister was walking along and saying: shall I direct you unto one who will take care of him! Thus We returned thee to thy mother that she might cool her eyes and she might not grieve. And thou slewest a person, but We delivered thee from sorrow, and We tried thee with several trials. Then thou tarriedst for years among the people of Madyan then thou camest according to fate, O Musa
20:41  And formed thee for Myself
20:42  Go thou and thy brother with My signs, and slacken not in remembrance of Mine
20:43  Go ye twain unto Fir'awn, verily he hath waxen exorbitant
20:44  Then say to him a gentle saying; haply he may be admonished or he may fear
20:45  The twain said: O our Lord! verily we fear that he may hasten against us or wax exorbitant
20:46  He said; fear not; verily I shall be With you twain: I shall hear and see
20:47  So go to him, and say: verily we are two apostles of thy Lord, so let go with us the Children of Isra'il, and torment them not; surely we have come unto thee with a sign from thy Lord: and peace be upon him who followeth the guidance
20:48  Verily We! it hath been revealed unto us that the torment will be for him who belieth and turneth away
20:49  He said: who is the Lord of you twain, O Musa
20:50  Musa said: our Lord is He who vouchsafed unto everything its creation, then guided it
20:51  He said: then what happened to the former generations
20:52  Musa said: the knowledge there of is with my Lord in the Book; my Lord erreth not, nor He forgetteth
20:53  Who hath appointed for you the earth as a bed, and hath opened for you therein pathways, and hath sent down from the heaven water, and thereby We have brought forth kinds of plants, various
20:54  Eat and pasture your cattle: verily therein are signs for men of sagacity
20:55  Thereof We created you, and thereunto We return you, and therefrom We shall bring You forth once again
20:56  And assuredly We shewed him Our signs, all of them, but he belied and refused
20:57  He said: art thou come unto us that thou mayest drive us out of our land by thy magic, O Musa
20:58  So We shall surely bring unto thee a magic the like thereof; so Make between us and thee an appointment which neither we nor thou shall fail in some open space
20:59  Musa said: your appointment is the gala day, and that the people be gathered in the forenoon
20:60  Then Firawn turned away, devised his stratagem; thereafter he came
20:61  Musa said unto them: woe unto you! fabricate not against Allah a lie, lest he extirpate you with a torment, and surely He who fabricateth, loseth
20:62  Then they wrangled about their affair among themselves, and kept secret their private counsel
20:63  They said: verily these two are magicians, intending to drive you forth from your land by their magic and to do away with your superior way
20:64  Wherefore devise your stratagem, and then come in a row; and prospered to-day is he who overcometh
20:65  They said: either thou cast down, or we shall be the first to cast down
20:66  He said: nay, cast ye down. And lo! their cords and their staves were made to appear to him by their magic as though they were running
20:67  Then a kind of fear in his soul Musa felt
20:68  We said: fear not! verily thou! thou shalt be the superior
20:69  And cast thou down that which is in thy right hand: it shall swallow up that which they have wrought; They have wrought only a magician's stratagem; and the magician prospereth not wheresoever he cometh
20:70  Then the magicians were cast down prostrate; they said: we believe in the Lord of Musa and Harun
20:71  Fir'awn said; believed ye in him ere I gave you leave! verily he is your chief who hath taught you magic. So I will surely cut off your hands and feet on the opposite sides, and will surely crucify you on the trunks of palm-trees, and ye shall surely know whichever of us is severer in torment and more lasting
20:72  They said: we shall by no means prefer thee to that which hath come to us of the evidences, and to Him Who hath created us; so decree thou whatsoever thou shalt decree; thou canst only decree in respect of the life of this world
20:73  Verily we! we have believed in our Lord, that he may forgive us our faults, and that to which thou hast constrained us in the way of magic; and Allah is Best and Most Lasting
20:74  Verily whosoever cometh unto his lord as a Culprit, for him is Hell wherein he will neither die nor live
20:75  And whosoever cometh unto Him as a believer, and he hath done righteous works---then these! for them are ranks high
20:76  Gardens Everlasting whereunder rivers flow: abiders therein; that is the meed of him who hath purified himself
20:77  And assuredly We revealed unto Musa, saying: depart in night with my bondmen, and make for them in the sea a parth dry: thou Shalt fear neither overtaking, nor shalt thou be afraid
20:78  Then Fir'awn followed them with his hosts; and there came upon them of the sea that which came upon them
20:79  And Fir'awn led his nation astray, and guided them not
20:80  O Children of Israel; We delivered you from your enemy, and treated with you on the right side of the mount and sent down upon you the manna and the quails
20:81  Saying: eat of the clean things wherewith We have provided you, and wax not exorbitant in respect thereof, lest My wrath alight on you; and upon whomsoever My wrath alighteth, he surely perisheth
20:82  And verily I am the Most Forgiving unto whomsoever repenteth and believeth and worketh righteously, and thereafter letteth himself remain guided
20:83  And what hath made thee hasten from thy people, O Musa
20:84  He said: those! they are close on my footstep, and hastened to Thee, O my Lord; that Thou mightest be wellpleased
20:85  He said: verily We have tempted thy people after thee, and the Samiri hath led them astray
20:86  So Musa returned unto his people, indignant and sorrowful. He said: O my people! promised there not your Lord unto you an excellent promise! Lasted then the covenant too long for you, or desired ye that the wrath from your Lord should alight on you, so that ye failed to keep my appointment
20:87  They said: we failed not to keep thy appointment of our own authority, but we were laden with burthens of the people's ornaments; then we threw them, and Thus Samiri cast down
20:88  And he produced for them a calf: a body with a low. Then they Said: this is your god and the god of Musa, and that he forgat
20:89  Observed they not that it returned not unto them a word, and owned not for them hurt or profit
20:90  And assuredly Harun had said unto them afore: O my people! ye are only being tempted thereby; and verily your Lord is the Compassionate; so follow me and obey my command
20:91  They said: we shall by no means cease to be assiduous to it until there returneth to us Musa
20:92  Musa said: O Harun! what prevented thee, when thou sawest them going astray
20:93  That thou followedst me not! Hast thou disobeyed my command
20:94  Harun said: O my mother's son! hold me not by my beard nor by my head verily feared that thou wouldst say, thou hast caused a division among the Children of Israel and hast not guarded my Word
20:95  Musa said: what was thy object, O Samiri
20:96  He said: l saw that which they saw not; so I seized a handful from the footstep of the messenger, and then cast it; Thus my soul embellished the affair to me
20:97  Musa said: begone thou! verily it shall be thine in life to say no contact; and verily thine is an appointment which thou shalt by no means fail. And look at thy god to which thou hast been assidauous; we shall surely burn it, and we shall scatter it into the sea a wide scattering
20:98  Your God is only Allah, the One other than whom there is no god. He comprehendeth everything in knowledge
20:99  Thus We recount unto thee some tidings of that which hath preceded; and surely We have vouchsafed unto thee from before Us an admonition
20:100  Whosoever turnoth away therefrom--verily they shall bear on the Day of Judgment a burthen
20:101  As abiders therein. And vile will load! them on the Day of Judgment as a load
20:102  The Day whereon the trumpet will be blown into, and We shall gather the culprits on that Day blear-eyed
20:103  Mutterin among themselves: ye tarried not save ten days
20:104  We are the Best Knower of that which they will say, when the best of them in judgment Will say: ye tarried not save for a day
20:105  And they ask thee regarding the mountains; so say thou: my Lord will scatter them with a total scattering
20:106  Then He shall leave it a plain, level
20:107  Wherein thou shalt not see any crookedness or ruggedness
20:108  That Day they shall follow the caller for Whom there shall be no crookedness; and voices Shall be humbled for the Compassionate; so that thou shalt not hear ought except patterin
20:109  That Day intercession will Profit not except him for whom the Compassionate giveth leave, and of whom He approveth the Word
20:110  He knoweth that which is before them and that which is behind them, and they, encompass it not with their knowledge
20:111  And downcast will be faces before the Living, the Self- subsisting, and disappointed will be he who beareth a wrong
20:112  And whosoever worketh of the righteous works, and is a believer, he will not fear Wrong or begrudgin
20:113  And Thus We have sent it down, an Arabic Recitation, and have propounded variously therein of the threats, that haply they may fear, or that it may generate in them some admonition
20:114  Exalted is Allah, the True King! And hasten thee not with the Qur'an before there is finished to thee the revelation thereof, and say thou: O my Lord! increase me in knowledge
20:115  And assuredly We covenanted with Adam aforetime, then he forgat, and We found not in him steadiness
20:116  And recall what time We said to the angels: prostrate yourselves before Adam. They fell prostrate, but Iblis did not; he refused
20:117  Then We said: Adam! verily this is an enemy unto thee and thine spouse; so let him not drive forth you twain from the Garden, lest thou be destressed
20:118  Verily it is thine that thou shalt not hunger therein nor go naked
20:119  Nor that thou shalt thirst therein nor shall suffer from the sun
20:120  Then the Satan whispered unto him; he said: Adam! shall direct thee to the tree of eternity and a dominion that ageth not
20:121  Then the twain ate thereof; so there became disclosed to them their shame, and they began sewing upon them selves some of the leaves of the Garden, so Adam disobeyed his Lord, and erred
20:122  Thereafter his Lord accepted him, and relented toward him, and guided him
20:123  He said: get ye twain down therefrom together: some of you an enemy unto some others; then if there cometh unto you from Me guidance, whosoever followeth My guidance shall neither go astray nor be distressed
20:124  And whosoever turneth away from My admonition, for him verily will be a livelihood shrunken, and We shall raise him up on the Day of Judgment sightless
20:125  He will say: O my Lord! why hast Thou gathered me sightless whereas surely I have been a seer
20:126  Allah will say: Thus came Our signs Unto thee and thou ignoredst them; so that wise today thou shalt be ignored
20:127  Thus We requite him who trespasseth and believeth not in the signs of his Lord, and surely the torment of the Hereafter is most severe and most lasting
20:128  Hath it not served as guidance to them how many a generation We have destroyed before them, amidst whose dwellings they Walk! Verily therein are signs for men of sagacity
20:129  And had not a word from thy Lord gone forth, and a term determined, it must necessarily have come
20:130  So bear thou patiently that which they say, and hallow the praise of thy Lord before the rising of the sun and before the setting thereof. And hallow Him in part of the night and the ends of the day, haply thou wilt be pleased
20:131  And strain not thine eyes after that which We have given classes of them to enjoy: the splendour of the life of the World, that We might try them therein; and the provision of thy Lord is the best and most lasting
20:132  And command thy household for prayer, and persevere thou therein; We ask not of thee any provision; we Who provide thee; and the happy end is for piety
20:133  And they Say: wherefore bringeth he not unto us a sign from his Lord? Hath not there came unto them the evidence of that which is in the former Scriptures
20:134  And had We destroyed them With a torment before it, surely they would have said: O our Lord why sent not Thou Unto us an apostle that we might have followed Thy signs before we were disgraced and humiliated
20:135  Say thou: everyone Is on the watch; so watch, and anon ye shall know who are the fellows of thee even path and who hath let himself be guided
