20. Taha


Total verses: 135
Revealed in: Mecca

- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)

The surah that opens with the discrete Arabic letters Ṭā Hā. Like "Yā Sīn" (surah 36), "Ṭā Hā" is said to be one of the names of the Prophet Muḥammad. The surah both begins and ends with mention of the Quran: it was not sent to the Prophet to cause him grief but is a clear proof from his Lord. The example of Moses is given as a lengthy account in order to encourage the Prophet and show the end of the disbelievers. The destruction of earlier generations is cited as a lesson from which the disbelievers should learn. The Prophet is ordered to be patient and to persevere with his worship.
The surah is also known as: Ta-Ha, Taa Haa.

فَأْتِيَاهُ فَقُولَا إِنَّا رَسُولَا رَبِّكَ فَأَرْسِلْ مَعَنَا بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ وَلَا تُعَذِّبْهُمْ ۖ قَدْ جِئْنَاكَ بِآيَةٍ مِنْ رَبِّكَ ۖ وَالسَّلَامُ عَلَىٰ مَنِ اتَّبَعَ الْهُدَىٰ ﴿٤٧﴾
٤٧ - (اچھا) تو اس کے پاس جاؤ اور کہو کہ ہم آپ کے پروردگار کے بھیجے ہوئے ہیں تو بنی اسرائیل کو ہمارے ساتھ جانے کی اجازت دیجیئے۔ اور انہیں عذاب نہ کیجیئے۔ ہم آپ کے پاس آپ کے پروردگار کی طرف سے نشانی لے کر آئے ہیں۔ اور جو ہدایت کی بات مانے اس کو سلامتی ہو .
[20:47] So go to him and say, 'Indeed, we are messengers of your Lord, so send with us the Children of Israel and do not torment them. We have come to you with a sign from your Lord. And peace will be upon he who follows the guidance.
