We did not reveal the Qur´an to you to be distressed.
Only as a reminder to whoever fears (Allah).
A revelation from the One who created the earth and the elevated heavens.
The Merciful, who rose to the throne.
To Him belongs what is in the heavens and what is on earth and what is in between and what is below the ground.
And when you speak audibly, He knows the secrets and what is most hidden.
Allah, there is no god but Him, His are the most beautiful names.
And has the story of Musa (Moses) reached you?
When he saw a fire and said to his people: wait, I noticed a fire, maybe I can bring you a spark of it or find guidance by the fire.
Then when he came to it he was called: oh Musa (Moses).
I am your Lord, so take off your sandals, for you are in the sacred valley of Tuwa.
And I have chosen you, so listen to what is being revealed.
For I am Allah, there is no god except Me, so serve Me and keep up prayer to remember Me.
The hour will come, I hardly hide it, so that every soul is rewarded for what it strives for.
So let not one who does not believe in it and follows his desire divert you from it so that you are ruined.
And what is that in your right hand, oh Musa (Moses)?
He said: it is my staff, I lean on it and I round up my sheep with it and it has other uses for me.
He said: throw it, oh Musa (Moses).
So he threw it and it became a moving snake.
He said: take it and do not fear, We will return it to its original form.
And press your hand against your side, it will come out white without harm, another sign.
So that We show you of Our great signs.
Go to Pharaoh, he is transgressing.
He said: my Lord, expand my chest.
And make my task easy for me.
And untie the knot from my tongue.
So they understand my speech.
And give me a deputy from my family.
Harun (Aaron), my brother.
Increase with him my strength.
And give him a share in my task.
So that we glorify You a lot.
And remember You a lot.
For You watched over us.
He said: your request has been granted, oh Musa (Moses).
And We already favoured you another time.
When We revealed to your mother what was revealed:
Drop him into the basket and drop it into the river, then the river will carry it to the bank and an enemy to Me and to him will take it. And I poured love from Me on you so that you would grow up under My eyes.
When your sister went and said: shall I point you to someone who will care for him? So We returned you to your mother to comfort her eyes and so she would not worry. And you killed a person and We rescued you from the grief and tested you a great deal, then you stayed a few years with the people of Madyan (Midian), then you came as decreed, oh Musa (Moses).
And I have chosen you for Myself.
Go, you and your brother, with My signs and do not tire of My remembrance.
Go to Pharaoh, he is transgressing.
And talk to him gently so that he might reflect or fear.
He said: Our Lord, we fear that he will abuse us or transgress.
He said: do not fear, I am with you, listening and seeing.
So go to him and say: we are two messengers of your Lord, so send with us the Children of Israel and do not punish them. We have brought you a sign from your Lord, and peace be with him who follows the guidance.
It has been revealed to us that the punishment is upon him who denies and turns away.
He said: and who is your Lord, oh Musa (Moses).
He said: our Lord is the One who gave everything its origin then directed it.
He said: then what is the state of the earliest generations?
He said: knowledge about them is with my Lord in a book, my Lord neither errs nor forgets.
The One who gave you the earth as an expanse and cut paths in it for you and sent water from the sky by which We bring out various pairs of plants.
Eat and graze your cattle, for in this are signs for those with reason.
From it We created you and into it you return and from it We will bring you out once again.
And We showed him all Our signs, but he denied and refused.
He said: did you come to expel us from our land with your magic, oh Musa (Moses)?
So we will bring you similar magic. Set an appointed time between us and you that neither we nor you will miss, at an open place.
He said: your appointed time is the day of celebration and let people gather in the morning.
So Pharaoh turned away and agreed his plot, then he came.
Musa (Moses) said to them: woe to you, do not invent a lie against Allah so He afflicts you with punishment, and whoever invents (a lie) will be destroyed.
Then they discussed their situation secretly amongst themselves.
They said: these are two magicians who want to expel you from your land with their magic and take away your traditions.
So agree on your plot, then come in ranks, and today the one who comes out on top will be successful.
They said: oh Musa (Moses), either you throw or we throw first.
He said: no, you throw, then their ropes and sticks appeared to move with their magic.
So Musa (Moses) sensed fear in himself.
We said: do not fear, you will come out on top.
And throw what is in your right hand, it will take over the magician´s plot they have constructed, and the magician does not succeed, wherever he goes.
Then the magicians fell prostrate, saying: we believe in the Lord of Harun (Aaron) and Musa (Moses).
He said: do you believe him before I have given you permission? He must be your chief who taught you magic, so I will cut your hands and feet from opposite sides and crucify you on palm trunks and you will know who of us is more severe and lasting in punishment.
They said: we will not give you priority over the clear proofs which have come to us and the One who originated us, so decide what you have to, you only decide about this worldly life.
For we believe in our Lord so that He forgives us our sins and the magic you compelled us to do, and Allah is better and more lasting.
Whoever comes to his Lord as a sinner, for him is hell where he will neither die nor live.
And whoever comes to Him as a believer who does good work, for them are the highest stages.
Gardens of Eden through which rivers flow where they will remain, and that is the reward for him who purifies himself.
And We revealed to Musa (Moses) to travel with My servants and strike a dry path in the sea for them without fearing to be overtaken or being afraid.
Then Pharaoh followed them with his soldiers and the sea completely surrounded them.
And Pharaoh led his people astray and did not guide them.
Oh Children of Israel, We rescued you from your enemy and had a meeting with you with the mountain on the right and sent to you honeydew and quails.
Eat from the good things We have provided you with and do not transgress in this state, so My anger becomes lawful on you, and on whom My anger becomes lawful, he has fallen.
And I am forgiving to him who repents and believes and does good work and then is guided.
And why have you hurried away from your people, oh Musa (Moses)?
He said: they are following behind me, and I hurried to you in order to please You, my Lord.
He said: We have tested your people after you and Samiri led them astray.
So Musa (Moses) returned to his people angry and sad, saying: oh my people, did not your Lord give you a good promise? Was this taking too long for you or did you want anger from you Lord to become lawful on you, so that you broke your promise to me?
They said: we did not break our promise to you on our own account, but we carried loads of the jewellery of the people and cast it (in the fire) just as Samiri told us to.
Then he brought the body of a calf out for them which had a mooing sound, so they said: this is your god and the god of Musa (Moses), but he forgot.
Do they not see that it does not talk back to them nor has any control over harm or good for them?
And Harun (Aaron) said to them before: oh my people, you are being tested by it and your Lord is the Merciful, so follow me and obey my command.
They said: we will not stop being devoted to it until Musa (Moses) returns to us.
He said: oh Harun (Aaron), what prevented you, when you saw them go astray,
From following me? Did you disobey my command?
He said: oh son of my mother, do not grab me by the beard nor by the head, I feared that you would say: you divided the Children of Israel and did not heed my word.
He said: and what do you have to say, oh Samiri?
He said: I saw what they did not see and took hold of a handful of the trace of the messenger and threw it in, and this is what my soul suggested to me.
He said: so go and your destiny in life will be that you will say: I am untouchable, and you will have an appointed time which you will not miss, and look at your god that you were devoted to: we will burn it, then scatter it in the sea.
For your god is Allah, the One besides whom there is no god and whose knowledge extends to everything.
This is how We tell you of the information gone before and of which We have given you a reminder from Ourselves.
Whoever turns away from it, he will carry a burden on the day of resurrection.
They will remain there and what they carry on the day of resurrection will be bad for them.
On the day the horn is blown and We will gather the sinners on that day with their eyes turning white.
Whispering to each other: you have only stayed ten days.
We know best what they say when the one most reasonable of them says: you have only stayed a day.
And they ask you about the mountains, so say: my Lord will scatter them.
Then leave them as an empty space.
In which you will see neither contours nor protrusion.
On that day they will follow the caller without deviation and the voices will be subdued to the Merciful and you will not hear anything except a whisper.
On that day intercession will not benefit anyone unless the Merciful has given him permission and is pleased with what he says.
He knows what lies before them and behind them and they do not grasp Him in knowledge.
And the faces are humbled before the Living, the Eternal, and whoever is burdened with wrongdoing will be destroyed.
And whoever did good work and is a believer, he will not fear wrongdoing nor injustice.
And this is how We revealed it as an Arabic Qur´an and explained the promise in it so that they beware (of Allah) or are given a reminder.
Exalted, therefore, is Allah, the true king, and do not be in a hurry with the Qur´an before its revelation has been completed for you and say: my Lord, increase me in knowledge.
And We had an agreement with Adam before but he forgot and We did not find that he had resolve.
And when We said to the angels: "Prostrate before Adam", they prostrated except for Iblis (the devil); he refused.
So We said: oh Adam, this is an enemy to you and your wife, so let him not expel you from the garden, so you would be distressed.
For you are not hungry there nor are you exposed.
And you are not thirsty there nor are you hot.
Then the devil whispered to him, saying: oh Adam, shall I direct you to the tree of eternity and a kingdom which does not diminish?
So they both ate from it and their bodies became apparent to them and they began to cover themselves with leaves from the garden, and Adam disobeyed his Lord and went astray.
Then His Lord chose him and turned back to him and guided him.
He said: Get down from here, all of you, as enemies one to another. then when a guidance reaches you from Me, whoever then follows My guidance, he will not go astray nor be distressed.
And whoever turns away from My reminder, he will have a constrained life and on the day of resurrection We will gather him blind.
He will say: my Lord, why did You gather me blind when I could see?
He will say: likewise Our signs came to you but you forgot them, likewise you will be forgotten today.
And this is how We punish the one who is wasteful and does not believe in the signs of his Lord, and the punishment of the hereafter is more severe and more lasting.
Are they not guided by how many generations We destroyed before them in whose homes they walk? In this are signs for those with reason.
And if a word from your Lord had not gone before, it would be inevitable, but it is a limited term.
So have patience with what they say and glorify the praise of your Lord before sun rise and before it sets, and during part of the night glorify Him and at the ends of the day, so that you may be content.
And do not extend your eyes to the enjoyment We have given some couples of them as the splendour of this world in order to test them by it, and the provision of your Lord is better and more lasting.
And instruct your family to pray and be consistent in it; We do not ask provision from you, We provide for you, and the outcome is for those who beware (of Allah).
And they say: why does not a sign come to us from our Lord? Did not a clear proof reach them from the earlier records?
And had We destroyed them with a punishment before that, they would have said: our Lord, why did You not send a messenger to us so we would follow Your signs before being humiliated and disgraced?
Say: all are waiting, so wait, then you will know who are the companions on the level path and who is guided.
