Ali Quli Qarai, The Qur’ān with a Phrase-by-Phrase English Translation (2005)

20. Sūrat Ṭā Hā 1

In the Name of Allah,
the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.

1 Ṭā Hā!1
2 We did not send down to you the Qur’ān
that you should be miserable,
3 but only as an admonition
to him who fears [his Lord].
4 A sending down [of the Revelation] from Him
who created the earth
and the lofty heavens
5 — the All-beneficent, settled on the Throne.
6 To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens
and whatever is on the earth,
and whatever is between them,
and whatever is under the ground.
7 Whether you speak loudly [or in secret tones]
He indeed knows the secret
and what is still more hidden.
8 Allah — there is no god except Him —
to Him belong the Best Names.

9 Did the story of Moses come to you,
10 when he sighted a fire,
and said to his family, ‘Wait!

1 Like Yā Sīn, Ṭā Hā is said to be one of the names of the Prophet (). Ma‘ānī al-akhbār, p. 22.
