Taa Siin. Those are the signs of' the Quran and a book that makes clear,
a guidance and good news for the believers,
who establish worship (salat) and give charity (zakat) and they are certain of the hereafter.
For those who do not believe in the hereafter, We have certainly made their deeds fair seeming to them, so they blindly wander,
those are the persons for whom there is a severe punishment and in the hereafter they will be the greatest losers.
And you are certainly made to receive the Quran from the Wise, the Knowing.
When Musa said to his family, "I perceive a fire, I will bring information to you from it or I will come to you with a flaming and burning brand, so that you may warm yourselves."
So when he came to it, a voice was heard that, "Blessed is whoever is in the fire and whoever is around it and glory be to Allah the Fosterer of the worlds.
O Musa ! I am Allah, the Mighty, the Wise.
And throw your staff," then when he saw it moving as if it were a snake he turned back retreating and did not return. "O Musa! do not fear, the messengers do not fear (when they are) with Me,
nor he who was unjust, then he changed it (with) good after the evil, for I am certainly Protectively Forgiving, Merciful.
And enter your hand into (the opening of) your bosom, it will come out white without any evil. (These are) among the nine signs to Firawn and his people, they are certainly a transgressing people."
So when Our visible signs came to them, they said, "This is clear magic."
And they knowingly denied it unjustly and proudly while they were certain about it (in) their souls (minds). Then see how the end of those who were corrupt, was (brought about).
And We had given knowledge to Dawood and Sulaiman and they said, "Praise is due only for Allah Who has preferred us above many of His believing servants."
And Sulaiman was Dawood's heir and he said, "O mankind! we have been taught the speech of birds and we have been given of everything. This is certainly a clear grace."
And his armies of the jinn and human beings and the birds were gathered before Sulaiman and they were formed into ordered ranks,
until when they came to a valley of the ants, an ant said, "O you ants! enter your houses lest Sulaiman and his armies crush you while they do not perceive."
So he smiled (and) laughed at its statement and said, "My Fosterer! grant me such orderliness that I should be grateful for Your favour with which You have favoured me and my parents, and that I should do such righteouswork which should please You; and admit me by Your mercy, among Your righteous servants."
And he sought for the birds, then said, "How is it that I do not see the hoopoe or is he among those who arc absent?
I will definitely punish him with a severe punishment or slaughter him or he should definitely come to me with a clear authority (justifying his absence)."
So without making (him) wait for long (the hoopoe came) and said, "I have acquired (knowledge) of that which you do not know, and I bring to you true news from Saba.
I found a woman ruling over them and she has been given of everything and she has a great throne.
I found her and her people prostrating to the sun besides Allah, and the devil has made their deeds fair seeming to them and turned them away from the way, so they are misguided (to the extent)
that they do not prostrate to Allah Who brings forth that which is hidden in the skies and the earth and knows that which you hide and that which you make public.
Allah, there is no god except Him, He is the Lord of the great throne (of the universe)."
He said, "We will see whether you speak the truth or you are of the liars.
Go with this letter of mine and deliver it to them, then turn away from them and see what (answer) they return."
(The Queen) said, "O you chiefs! an honourable letter has been delivered to me,
it is from Sulaiman, and it is: In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful,
that, exalt not yourselves against me and come to me as those who submit (as Muslims)." (R 2)
She said, "O you chiefs! advise me in this affair of mine, I do not decide an affair until you are present with me."
They said, "We are endued with strength and endued to fight severely, and it is on you to command, therefore you see what you (wish) to command."
She said When kings enter a township, they certainly cause disorder in it, and make the mightiest of its people most disgraced and thus they (too) will do,
and I am sending a gift to them, so as to see with (what answer) the messengers return."
So when be (the envoy) came to Sulaiman he said, "What ! will you help me with wealth? But that which Allah has given me is better than that which he has given you. No, it is you who are happy with your gift (not I).
Return to them, and we will definitely come to them with armies which they will not be able to oppose, and we will definitely drive them out from there, disgraced, and they will be degraded."
He said “O you chiefs ! which of you will bring her throne to me before they come to me surrendering (as Muslims)."
One cleverly alert among the jinn said, "I will bring it to you before you rise from your place and I certainly have the reliable strength to do it."
One who had knowledge of the book* said, "I will bring it to you before the blinking of your eye." So when he saw it settled in his presence, he said, "This is (something) from the grace of my Fosterer to test me whether I am grateful or ungrateful, and one who is grateful, then his being grateful is only for (the benefit of) his own soul and one who is ungrateful, then my Fosterer is certainly Independent, Honourable." * Law of teletransportation
He said, "Make her throne unrecognizable for her, we will see whether she is capable of receiving guidance or she is of those who are not capable of receiving guidance."
So when she came, it was said to her, "Is your throne like this?" She said, "It is just like it and we were given the know edge before it and we have submitted (as Muslims)."
And that which she worshipped besides Allah, had hindered her (earlier), she was certainly of the people who were infidels.
It was said to her, “Enter the palace.” So when she saw it, she thought it to be an expanse of water and removed (the covering) from her ankles (to cross it). He (Sulaiman) said, "It is a palace made smooth with glass.” She said, “My Fosterer! I have been unjust to myself and I submit with Sulaiman to Allah, the Fosterer of the worlds."
And We indeed sent to Samood their brother Saleh, (saying) that, “Serve Allah,” when they became two parties disputing (with each other).
He said, “O my people! why do you seek to hasten on the evil before the good, why do you not seek protective forgiveness of Allah that you may be dealt with mercifully?”
They said, “We have met with ill luck because of you and because of those with you." He said, “Your ill luck is with Allah, no, you are a people who are being tested.”
And there were nine persons in the city who caused corruption in the land and did not act right.
They said, “Swear to each other by Allah that we will definitely attack him and his people by night, then we will definitely say to his heir: we did not witness the destruction of his people and we certainly speak the truth.”
And they planned a plan and We (too) planned a plan while they did not perceive.
Then see what was the end of their plan, We destroyed them and their people all together.
So those are their houses fallen down because they were unjust, there is certainly a sign in that for a people who know.
And We delivered those who believed and who had guarded (against evil).
And (We sent) Lut, when he said to his people, “Why do you commit indecency while approach men besides women? No, you are an ignorant people.”
What! Do you indeed lustfully approach men besides women? No, you are an ignorant people?
So the reply of his people was nothing but they said, "Drive out Lut's followers from your town, they are persons who want to be clean.”
So We delivered him and his followers except his wife, We destined her to be of those who remained behind.
And We rained on them a rain, so evil was the rain of those who were warned. (R4)
Say, “Praise is due only for Allah, and peace on His servants whom He has chosen. Is Allah better or that which they associate as partners (with Him)?
Who is it, Who has created the skies and the earth and sent down for you water from the sky? Then We cause to grow through it, beautiful gardens, it is not (possible) for you to cause the trees to grow therein. Is there a god with Allah? No, they are a people who equate (others with Allah).
Who is it, Who has made the earth a place for staying, and made rivers in the passages therein, and made mountains on it, and made a barrier between the two seas? Is there a god with Allah? No, the majority of them does not know.
Who is it, Who responds to the distressed when he prays to Him and removes the evil and makes you successors of the earth? Is there a god with Allah? Little is it that you mind.
Who is it, Who guides you in the darkness of the land and the sea, and Who sends the winds as good news before His mercy? Is there a god with Allah? Highly Exalted is Allah above that which they associate as partners (with Him).
Who is it, Who begins the creation then gets it reproduced, and Who provides you from the sky and the earth? Is there a god with Allah? Say, “Bring your proof if you are truthful.”
. Say, “No one in the skies and the earth knows the unseen except Allah, and they do not perceive when they will be raised.”
No, their knowledge has reached (its limit with regard to its penetration) into the hereafter, no, they are in a doubt regarding it, no, they are blind regarding it. (R 5)
And those who do not believe say, “What! when we become (part of the) soil and our fathers (too), will we be brought out?
We have been promised this, we and our fathers before, these are nothing but stories of the ancient."
Say, “Travel in the earth, then see how the end of the criminals was (brought about).”
And do not grieve over them nor be in distress because of that which they plan.
And they say, "When will this promise (be fulfilled) if you are truthful?”
Say, “It may be that part of that which you are seeking to be hastened on, is following you closely.”
And your Fosterer is certainly full of grace for mankind but the majority of them is not grateful.
And your Fosterer certainly knows that which is hidden in their bosoms and that which they make public.
And there is nothing of the unseen in the sky and the earth but it is (recorded) in a clear record.
This Quran certainly narrates to the children of Israel, most of those (matters) in which they differ,
and it is certainly a guide and mercy for the believers.
Your Fosterer will certainly decide between them by His judgment, and He is the Mighty, the Knowing,
so put your trust in Allah, you are certainly on clear truth.
You cannot make the dead to hear nor can you make the deaf to hear the call when they return retreating,
nor can you lead the blind (away) from their error, you can make no one to hear except those who believe in Our signs, so they submit (as Muslims).
And when the word becomes incumbent on them, We will bring out for them a living creature from the earth which will speak to them because mankind was not sure of Our signs
And the day We will gather from every community, batches of those who denied Our signs, they will be formed in to ordered ranks,
until when they come (before Allah), He will say, “Did you deny My signs and did not comprehend them in (your ) knowledge, or what was it that you did?”
And the word will become incumbent on them because they were unjust, so they will not (be able to) speak.
Did they not see that We have made the night that they may rest therein and the day to give visibility? In that there are certainly signs for a people who believe.
And the day it will be blown into the trumpet (structure of the universe), then whoever is in the skies and whoever is in the earth will be horrified except such as Allah wills, and all will come to Him humbled.
And you see the mountains, you suppose them to be firm, but they will pass away like the passing away of clouds. The work of Allah Who perfected everything. He is certainly informed of what you do.
Whoever comes with good, then for him is (a reward) better than that and they will be among those who will be secure from the horror of that day.
And Whoever comes with evil, they will be thrown on their faces into the fire. Will you be rewarded (for something) other than that which you used to do?
I am commanded only to serve the Fosterer of this city (of Mecca) which He has made sacred and to Whom belongs everything, and I am commanded to be among those who submit (as Muslims),
and to read (and follow ) the Quran, because one who receives guidance, then he receives guidance only (for the benefit) of his own soul, and one who goes astray,( does so for his own loss), then say (to him, “ I am only of those who warn.”
And say, “Praise is due only for Allah Who will show His signs to you, so that you will recognize them, and your Fosterer is not unaware of what you do.”
