28:1  Ta, Sin, Mim.
28:2  These are the signs of the clear book.
28:3  We recite to you in truth of the information about Musa (Moses) and Pharaoh for people who believe.
28:4  Pharaoh exalted on earth and turned its people into factions, a group of whom he oppressed, slaughtering their sons and sparing their women, for he was of the corrupters.
28:5  And We wanted to show favour to those who were oppressed on earth and make them leaders and make them the inheritors.
28:6  And to establish them on earth and show Pharaoh and Haman and their soldiers from them what they were afraid of.
28:7  And We revealed to the mother of Musa (Moses) to suckle him, then when you fear for him, throw him into the river and do not fear nor worry, for We will return him to you and make him of the messengers.
28:8  Then the family of Pharaoh picked him up so he would be an enemy and worry for them, for Pharaoh and Haman and their soldiers were guilty.
28:9  And the wife of Pharaoh said: a comfort for my eyes and yours, do not kill him, maybe he will benefit us or we will adopt him as a son, and they did not realise.
28:10  And the heart of the mother of Musa (Moses) became empty and she almost disclosed him had We not made her heart firm so that she would be of the believers.
28:11  So she said to his sister, go after him, then she saw him from the side-lines whilst they did not realise.
28:12  And We had forbidden to him wet-nurses before, so she said: shall I point you to the people of a house who will take care of him for you and be sincere to him?
28:13  So We returned him to his mother so that her eyes would be comforted and she would not worry and would know that the promise of Allah is true, but most of them don´t know.
28:14  And when he attained his full strength and stature We gave him the ability to judge and knowledge and this is how We reward those who do good.
28:15  And he entered the town when its inhabitants were unaware and found there two men fighting, one from his faction and one from his enemies; then the one from his faction asked for his assistance against the one from his enemies, so Musa (Moses) hit him and finished him off. He said: this is from the devil´s work, for he is a clear misleading enemy.
28:16  He said: my Lord, I have wronged myself, so forgive me. Then He forgave him, for He is forgiving and merciful.
28:17  He said: my Lord, because you have favoured me I will not support the sinful.
28:18  Then he became fearful and apprehensive in the town when the one who had sought his help the day before called out for his help. Musa (Moses) said to him: you are a clear hothead.
28:19  Then when he wanted to strike the one who was an enemy to them both he said: oh Musa (Moses), do you want to kill me like you killed someone yesterday? You only want to be a tyrant on earth and don´t want to be of the reformers.
28:20  And a man came running from the other end of town, saying: oh Musa (Moses), the leaders are commanding to kill you, so leave, I am sincere to you.
28:21  So he left from there fearful and apprehensive and said: my Lord, rescue me from the wrongdoing people.
28:22  Then when he faced towards Madyan (Midian) he said: maybe my Lord will guide me to the level way.
28:23  And when he arrived at the water of Madyan (Midian) he found a community of people there who watered (their flocks) and found besides them two women staying away. He said: what is the matter with you? They said: we will not water (our flock) until the shepherds have gone, and our father is an old man.
28:24  So he watered them for them, then turned towards the shade and said: my Lord, I am in need of any good you may send to me.
28:25  Then one of them came walking shyly and said: my father calls you to pay you a reward for having watered (our flock) for us. Then when he came and related to him the story he said: do not fear, you have been rescued from the wrongdoing people.
28:26  One of them said: oh my father, hire him, for the best you can hire is the strong and trusted.
28:27  He said: I want to marry one of these two daughters of mine to you on condition that you work for me for eight seasons, but if you complete ten then that is up to you, and I do not want to overburden you, you will, if Allah pleases, find me of the righteous.
28:28  He said: that is between me and you, whichever of the two terms I complete, there shall be no enmity against me, and Allah is a guardian over what we say.
28:29  Then when Musa (Moses) had completed the term and travelled with his family, he noticed on the side of the mountain a fire. He said to his family: wait, I noticed a fire, maybe I bring you news from there or a burning log from the fire so you can warm yourselves.
28:30  Then when he reached it he was called from the right side of the valley at the blessed location of the tree: oh Musa (Moses), I am Allah, the Lord of all worlds.
28:31  And throw your stick, then when he saw it move as if it was a snake, he turned away and did not turn around; oh Musa (Moses): come close and do not fear, for you are safe.
28:32  Insert your hand onto your chest, it will come out white without harm, and bring your arms together (over your chest) to calm your fear. So these are two proofs from your Lord for Pharaoh and his leaders, for they are sinful people.
28:33  He said: my Lord, I killed someone from them and fear that they will kill me.
28:34  And my brother Harun (Aaron) is more eloquent in speech than me, so send him with me in support to confirm me, for I fear that they will deny me.
28:35  He said: We will strengthen your support with your brother and give you both authority, so they will not get to you; with Our signs you both and those who follow you will be the winners.
28:36  Then when Musa (Moses) came to them with Our clear signs they said: this is only invented magic and we have not heard this from our forefathers.
28:37  And Musa (Moses) said: my Lord knows best who comes with the guidance from Him and to whom belongs the final abode, for the wrongdoers do not succeed.
28:38  And Pharaoh said: oh leaders, I do not know any other god for you than myself, so supply me, oh Haman, with clay and build me a structure from which to ascend to the god of Musa (Moses), for I consider him a liar.
28:39  And he and his soldiers were arrogant on earth without right and thought that they would not return to Us.
28:40  So We overtook him and his soldiers and threw them into the sea, then see what the outcome of the wrongdoers was like.
28:41  And We made them leaders calling to the fire and on the day of resurrection they will not be helped.
28:42  And We had them followed by a curse, and on the day of resurrection they are amongst the despised.
28:43  And We gave Musa (Moses) the book, after having destroyed the earlier generations, as clear evidence for mankind and a guidance and mercy so that they might reflect.
28:44  And you were not on the Western side when We decided the matter for Musa (Moses) and you were not of the witnesses.
28:45  But We raised generations until the time seemed too long for them; and you did not live amongst the inhabitants of Madyan (Midian) to recite to them Our signs, but We sent others.
28:46  And you were not on the side of the mountain when We called, but it is a mercy from your Lord in order for you to warn a people to whom no warner has come before you, so that they reflect.
28:47  So that when an affliction befalls them on account of what they have sent ahead they cannot say: our Lord, why did You not send a messenger to us so we could follow Your signs and be of the believers?
28:48  Then when the truth from Us came to them they said: why hasn´t he been given the like of what Musa (Moses) was given? Did they not reject what Musa (Moses) had been given before, saying: two magicians supporting each other, and saying: we reject each of them.
28:49  Say: then bring a book from Allah which is more guided than those two, and I will follow it, if you are truthful.
28:50  Then if they do not respond to you, then know that they only follow their desires, and who is more astray than he who follows his desire without guidance from Allah, for Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.
28:51  And We made the word reach them continuously so that they might reflect.
28:52  Those to whom We gave the book before believe in it.
28:53  And when it is recited to them they say: we believe in it, for it is the truth from our Lord, we submitted (as Muslims) before.
28:54  Those will be given their reward twice on account of having had patience and warding off bad with good and spending of what We provided them with.
28:55  And if they hear idle talk, they turn away from it and say: our work is for us and your work is for you, peace be with you, we do not seek the ignorant.
28:56  For you do not guide whom you love but Allah guides whom He pleases, and He knows best who is guided.
28:57  And they say: if we follow the guidance with you we will be forced out from our land. Did We not establish for them a safe sanctuary where fruit of all kinds arrives as provision from Us, but most of them don´t know.
28:58  And how many a town have We destroyed which took pride in its living standards, so these are their homes which were not inhabited after them except a little, and We were the inheritors.
28:59  And your Lord never destroys a town until he raises in its midst a messenger who recites to them Our signs, and We never destroy towns unless their inhabitants are wrongdoers.
28:60  And whatever you have been given is the provision of the life of the world and its adornment, and what is with Allah is better and more lasting, do you not then understand?
28:61  Is he whom We have given a good promise and he achieves it like the one whom We have given provision in the life of the world, then on the day of resurrection he is of those summoned?
28:62  And on the day He calls them and says: where are My associates whom you claimed?
28:63  Those against whom the word comes to pass will say: our Lord, these are the ones whom we lead astray, we lead them astray just as we were astray, we disown them before You, they did not serve us.
28:64  And it will be said: call your associates, so they call them but they will not respond to them, and they see the punishment - if only they were guided.
28:65  And on the day He calls them, then will say: how did you respond to the messengers?
28:66  And they will be blind to any information on that day and will not ask each other.
28:67  So whoever repents and believes and does good, he will likely be successful.
28:68  And your Lord creates what He pleases and chooses, they do not have a choice, glorified is Allah and exalted above what they associate.
28:69  And your Lord knows what they hide inside and what they disclose.
28:70  And He is Allah, there is no god but Him, He is praised in this world and the next, and His is the judgement and to Him you will return.
28:71  Say: have you considered if Allah made the night continuous for you until the day of resurrection, what god other than Allah would bring you light? Do you not then listen?
28:72  Say: have you considered if Allah made the day continuous for you until the day of resurrection, what god other than Allah would bring you a night to rest in? Do you not then see?
28:73  And of His mercy He made for you the night and the day so that you rest in it and seek of His favours and so that you are grateful.
28:74  And on the day He calls them and says: where are My associates whom you claimed?
28:75  And We take a witness from each community, then say: bring your proof, then they know that the truth belongs to Allah and what they used to invent deserts them.
28:76  Qarun (Korah) was of the people of Musa (Moses) but transgressed against them, and We gave him treasures whose keys weighed down a strong camel, when his people said to him: do not show off, Allah does not love the show-offs.
28:77  And seek with that what Allah has given you the abode of the hereafter and do not forget your share of this world and do good like Allah has done good to you and do not seek corruption on earth, for Allah does not love the corrupters.
28:78  He said: I was given it on account of my own knowledge. Did he not know that Allah destroyed generations before him who had greater strength and larger numbers than him? And the sinful will not be questioned about their sins.
28:79  So he came out to his people in his adornments. Those who wanted the life of the world said: if only we had like what Qarun (Korah) has been given, for he is full of good fortune.
28:80  Those who were given knowledge said: woe to you, the reward of Allah is better for those who believe and do good, and only the patient achieve it.
28:81  Then We made the earth collapse with him and his house, and there was no detachment to help him besides Allah and he was not being helped.
28:82  And those who wished for his place the day before started saying: wow, Allah expands the provision for whom He pleases of His servants and tightens it, and if Allah had not bestowed favours on us, He would have made (the earth) collapse with us, wow, those who reject (the truth) do not succeed.
28:83  This is the abode of the hereafter which We made for those who do not seek arrogance nor corruption on earth, and the outcome is for those who beware (of Allah).
28:84  Whoever brings a good deed, he will receive better than it, and whoever brings a bad deed, those who do bad will only be punished for what they did.
28:85  The One who prescribed the Qur´an for you will return you to the promised place. Say: my Lord knows best who brings the guidance and who is in clear error.
28:86  And you could not hope that the book would be given to you except as a mercy from your Lord, so do not provide support to those who reject (the truth).
28:87  And let them not divert you from the signs of Allah after they were revealed to you and call upon your Lord and do not be of the idolaters.
28:88  And do not call with Allah on any other god, there is no god but Him, everything will be destroyed except His presence, His is the judgement and to Him you will return.
