Quran of the Day: Suratu Ta Ha (Q20 v 9-24)

Prepared by Okikiola Qasim

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.

٩  وَهَلْ أَتَاكَ حَدِيثُ مُوسَىٰ

9  Has the story of Moses reached you?

١٠  إِذْ رَأَىٰ نَارًا فَقَالَ لِأَهْلِهِ امْكُثُوا إِنِّي آنَسْتُ نَارًا لَعَلِّي آتِيكُمْ مِنْهَا بِقَبَسٍ أَوْ أَجِدُ عَلَى النَّارِ هُدًى

10  When he saw a fire, he said to his family, “Stay; I have noticed a fire; Perhaps I can bring you a torch therefrom, or find some guidance by the fire.”

١١  فَلَمَّا أَتَاهَا نُودِيَ يَا مُوسَىٰ

11  Then, when he reached it, he was called, “O Moses.

١٢  إِنِّي أَنَا رَبُّكَ فَاخْلَعْ نَعْلَيْكَ ۖ إِنَّكَ بِالْوَادِ الْمُقَدَّسِ طُوًى

12  I—I am your Lord. Take off your shoes. You are in the sacred valley of Tuwa.

١٣  وَأَنَا اخْتَرْتُكَ فَاسْتَمِعْ لِمَا يُوحَىٰ

13  I have chosen you, so listen to what is revealed.

١٤  إِنَّنِي أَنَا اللَّهُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا أَنَا فَاعْبُدْنِي وَأَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ لِذِكْرِي

14  I—I am Allah. There is no God but I. So serve Me and practice the prayer for My remembrance.

١٥  إِنَّ السَّاعَةَ آتِيَةٌ أَكَادُ أُخْفِيهَا لِتُجْزَىٰ كُلُّ نَفْسٍ بِمَا تَسْعَىٰ

15  The Hour is coming—but I keep it almost hidden—so that each soul will be paid for what it endeavors.

١٦  فَلَا يَصُدَّنَّكَ عَنْهَا مَنْ لَا يُؤْمِنُ بِهَا وَاتَّبَعَ هَوَاهُ فَتَرْدَىٰ

16  And do not let him who denies it and follows his desire turn you away from it, lest you fall.

١٧  وَمَا تِلْكَ بِيَمِينِكَ يَا مُوسَىٰ

17  And what is that in your right-hand, O Moses?”

١٨  قَالَ هِيَ عَصَايَ أَتَوَكَّأُ عَلَيْهَا وَأَهُشُّ بِهَا عَلَىٰ غَنَمِي وَلِيَ فِيهَا مَآرِبُ أُخْرَىٰ

18  He said, “This is my staff. I lean on it, and herd my sheep with it, and I have other uses for it.”

١٩  قَالَ أَلْقِهَا يَا مُوسَىٰ

19  He said, “Throw it, O Moses.”

٢٠  فَأَلْقَاهَا فَإِذَا هِيَ حَيَّةٌ تَسْعَىٰ

20  So he threw it—thereupon it became a moving serpent.

٢١  قَالَ خُذْهَا وَلَا تَخَفْ ۖ سَنُعِيدُهَا سِيرَتَهَا الْأُولَىٰ

21  He said, “Take hold of it, and do not fear. We will restore it to its original condition.

٢٢  وَاضْمُمْ يَدَكَ إِلَىٰ جَنَاحِكَ تَخْرُجْ بَيْضَاءَ مِنْ غَيْرِ سُوءٍ آيَةً أُخْرَىٰ

22  And press your hand to your side; it will come out white, without a blemish—another sign.

٢٣  لِنُرِيَكَ مِنْ آيَاتِنَا الْكُبْرَى

23  That We may show you some of Our greatest signs.

٢٤  اذْهَبْ إِلَىٰ فِرْعَوْنَ إِنَّهُ طَغَىٰ

24  Go to Pharaoh; He has transgressed.
