[Naml 27:1] Ta-Seen*; these are verses of the Qur’an and the clear Book. (Alphabets of the Arabic language – Allah, and to whomever he reveals, know their precise meanings.)
[Naml 27:2] A guidance and glad tidings for the believers.
[Naml 27:3] Those who keep the prayer established and pay the charity and are certain of the Hereafter.
[Naml 27:4] Those who do not believe in the Hereafter - We have made their deeds seem good to them, so they are astray.
[Naml 27:5] It is they for whom is the worst punishment, and they will be the greatest losers in the Hereafter.
[Naml 27:6] And indeed you (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him), are taught the Qur’an from the Wise, the All Knowing.
[Naml 27:7] (Remember) when Moosa said to his wife, “I have sighted a fire; I will soon bring its news to you, or bring for you an ember from it so that you may warm yourselves.”
[Naml 27:8] So when he reached it, it was proclaimed, “Blessed is he who is in the location of the fire (Moosa) and those who are close to it (the angels); and Purity is to Allah, the Lord Of The Creation.”
[Naml 27:9] “O Moosa, I am indeed, in truth, Allah the Almighty, the Wise.”
[Naml 27:10] “And put down your staff”; so when he saw it writhing like a serpent, he turned moving away without looking back; We said, “O Moosa, do not fear; indeed the Noble Messengers do not fear in My presence.”
[Naml 27:11] “Except the one * who does injustice and then after evil changes it for virtue – then indeed I am Oft Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Other than the Prophets.)
[Naml 27:12] “And put your hand inside your armpit - it will come out shining white, not due to any illness; a sign among the nine signs towards Firaun and his people; they are indeed a lawless nation.”
[Naml 27:13] Then when Our enlightening signs came to
them, they said, “This is clear magic.”
