In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
Dedication of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) for the guidance of mankind
1 Ta Sin Mim. 3137
2 These are Verses of the Book that makes (things) clear. 3138
3 It may be thou frettest thy soul with grief that they do not become Believers. 3139
4 If (such) were Our Will We could send down to them from the sky a Sign to which they would bend their necks in humility. 3140
5 But there comes not to them a newly-revealed message from (Allah) Most Gracious but they turn away therefrom.
6 They have indeed rejected (the Message): so they will know soon (enough) the truth of what they mocked at! 3141
7 Do they not look at the earth how many noble things of all kinds we have produced therein? 3142
8 Verily in this is a Sign: but most of them do not believe.
9 And verily thy Lord is He the Exalted in Might Most Merciful. 3143
10 Behold thy Lord called Moses: "Go to the people of iniquity 3144
Assignment of Musa as a Rasool and his dialogue with Fir'on and Miracles of Prophet Musa
11 "The people of Pharaoh: will they not fear Allah?"
12 He said: "O my Lord! I do fear that they will charge me with falsehood:
13 "My breast will be straitened and my speech may not go (smoothly): so send unto Aaron. 3145
14 "And (further) they have a charge of crime against me; and I fear they may slay me." 3146
15 Allah said: "By no means! proceed then both of you with Our Signs; We are with you and will listen (to your call).
16 "So go forth both of you to Pharaoh and say: `We have been sent by the Lord and Cherisher of the Worlds;
17 " `Send thou with us the Children of Israel.' "
18 (Pharaoh) said: "Did we not cherish thee as a child among us and didst thou not stay in our midst many years of thy life? 3147
19 "And thou didst a deed of thine which (thou knowest) thou didst and thou art an ungrateful (wretch)!" 3148
20 Moses: "I did it then when I was in error. 3149
21 "So I fled from you (all) when I feared you; but my Lord has (since) invested me with judgment (and wisdom) and appointed me as one of the apostles. 3150
22 "And this is the favor with which thou dost reproach me that thou hast enslaved the Children of Israel" 3151
23 Pharaoh said: "And what is the `Lord and Cherisher of the Worlds?' " 3152
24 (Moses) said: "The Lord and Cherisher of the heavens and the earth and all between if ye want to be quite sure."
25 (Pharaoh) said to those around: "Do ye not listen (to what he says)?" 3153
26 (Moses) said: "Your Lord and the Lord of your fathers from the beginning!"
27 (Pharaoh) said: "Truly your apostle who has been sent to you is a veritable madman!" 3154
28 (Moses) said: "Lord of the East and the West and all between! If ye only had sense!"
29 (Pharaoh) said: "If thou dost put forward any god other than me I will certainly put thee in prison!" 3155
30 (Moses) said: "Even if I showed you something clear (and) convincing?" 3156
31 (Pharaoh) said: "Show it then if thou tellest the truth!"
32 So (Moses) threw his rod and behold it was a serpent plain (for all to see)!
33 And he drew out his hand and behold it was white to all beholders! 3157
Fir'on took Prophet Musa's miracles as magic and summoned the magicians to compete and After witnessing a miracle, all the magicians embraced Islam
34 (Pharaoh) said to the Chiefs around him: "This is indeed a sorcerer well-versed: 3158
35 "His plan is to get you out of your land by his sorcery; then what is it ye counsel?"
36 They said: "Keep him and his brother in suspense (for a while) and dispatch to the Cities heralds to collect
37 "And bring up to thee all (our) sorcerers well-versed."
38 So the sorcerers were got together for the appointment of a day well-known 3159
39 And the people were told: "Are ye (now) assembled?
40 "That we may follow the sorcerers (in religion) if they win?" 3160
41 So when the sorcerers arrived they said to Pharaoh: "Of course shall we have a (suitable) reward if we win?" 3161
42 He said: "Yea (and more) for ye shall in that case be (raised to posts) nearest (to my person)."
43 Moses said to them: "Throw ye that which ye are about to throw!" 3162
44 So they threw their ropes and their rods and said: "By the might of Pharaoh it is we who will certainly win!" 3163
45 Then Moses threw his rod when behold it straightway swallows up all the falsehoods which they fake! 3164
46 Then did the sorcerers fall down prostrate in adoration
47 Saying: "We believe in the Lord of the Worlds
48 "The Lord of Moses and Aaron."
49 Said (Pharaoh): "Believe ye in him before I give you permission? Surely he is your leader who has taught you sorcery! But soon shall ye know! "But sure I will cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides and I will cause you all to die on the cross!" 3165
50 They said: "No matter! for us we shall but return to our Lord!
51 "Only our desire is that our Lord will forgive us our faults that we may become foremost among the Believers!" 3166
Deliverance of the Children of Israel and the destruction of Fir'on and his chiefs
52 By inspiration We told Moses: "Travel by night with My servants; for surely ye shall be pursued." 3167
53 Then Pharaoh sent heralds to (all) the Cities
54 (Saying): "These (Israelites) are but a small band
55 "And they are raging furiously against us;
56 "But we are a multitude amply fore-warned."
57 So We expelled them from gardens springs 3168
58 Treasures and every kind of honorable position;
59 Thus it was but We made the Children of Israel inheritors of such things. 3169
60 So they pursued them at sunrise. 3170
61 And when the two bodies saw each other the people of Moses said: "We are sure to be overtaken."
62 (Moses said: "By no means! my Lord is with me! Soon will He guide me! 3171
63 Then We told Moses by inspiration: "Strike the sea with thy rod." So it divided and each separate part become like the huge firm mass of a mountain.
64 And We made the other party approach thither. 3172
65 We delivered Moses and all who were with him;
66 But We drowned the others.
67 Verily in this is a Sign: but most of them do not believe. 3173
68 And verily thy Lord is He the Exalted in Might Most Merciful. 3174

71 They said: "We worship idols and we remain constantly in attendance on them." 3176
72 He said: "Do they listen to you when ye call (on them)
73 "Or do you good or harm?"
74 They said: "Nay but we found our fathers doing thus (what we do)."
75 He said: "Do ye then see whom ye have been worshipping
76 "Ye and your fathers before you?
77 "For they are enemies to me; not so the Lord and Cherisher of the Worlds; 3177
78 "Who created me and it is He Who guides me;
79 "Who gives me food and drink
80 "And when I am ill it is He Who cures me;

Al-Quran is revealed in plain Arabic by Allah through angel Gabriel, those people who do not want to believe will not believe
192 Verily this is a Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds: 3223
193 With it came down the Spirit of Faith and Truth 3224
194 To thy heart and mind that thou mayest admonish 3225
195 In the perspicuous Arabic tongue.
196 Without doubt it is (announced) in the mystic Books of former peoples. 3226
197 Is it not a Sign to them that the learned of the Children of Israel knew it (as true)? 3227
198 Had We revealed it to any of the non-Arabs
199 And had he recited it to them they would not have believed in it. 3228
200 Thus have We caused it to enter the hearts of the Sinners. 3229
201 They will not believe in it until they see the grievous Penalty;
202 But the (Penalty) will come to them of a sudden while they perceive it not;
203 Then they will say: "Shall we be respited?"
204 Do they then ask for Our Penalty to be hastened on? 3230
205 Seest thou? If We do let them enjoy (this life) for a few years
206 Yet there comes to them at length the (Punishment) which they were promised!
207 It will profit them not that they enjoyed (this life)!
Al-Quran is not brought down by shaitans, it is neither in their interest nor in their power
208 Never did We destroy a population but had its warners
209 By way of reminder; and We never are unjust. 3231
210 No evil ones have brought down this (Revelation): 3232
211 It would neither suit them nor would they be able (to produce it).
212 Indeed they have been removed far from even (a chance of) hearing it.
213 So call not on any other god with Allah or thou wilt be among those under the Penalty.
214 And admonish thy nearest kinsmen
215 And lower thy wing to the Believers who follow thee. 3233
216 Then if they disobey thee say: "I am free (of responsibility) for what ye do!" 3234
217 And put thy trust on the Exalted in Might the Merciful
218 Who seeth thee standing forth (in prayer)
219 And thy movements among those who prostrate themselves. 3235
220 For it is He Who heareth and knoweth all things.
Shaitans descend on slandering sinners, who listen to hearsay and are liars
221 Shall I inform you (O people!) on whom it is that the evil ones descend? 3236
222 They descend on every lying wicked person
223 (Into whose ears) they pour hearsay vanities and most of them are liars.
224 And the Poets it is those straying in Evil who follow them: 3237
225 Seest thou not that they wander distracted in every valley?
226 And that they say what they practice not?
227 Except those who believe work righteousness engage much in the remembrance of Allah and defend themselves only after they are unjustly attacked. And soon will the unjust assailants know what vicissitudes their affairs will take! 3238 3239
