سورة طه

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.

Detailed verse by verse explanation of Quran in Urdu by Late Dr. Israr Ahmad.

وَلَقَدْ أَوْحَيْنَا إِلَىٰ مُوسَىٰ أَنْ أَسْرِ بِعِبَادِي فَاضْرِبْ لَهُمْ طَرِيقًا فِي الْبَحْرِ يَبَسًا لَا تَخَافُ دَرَكًا وَلَا تَخْشَىٰ ﴿٧٧﴾
٧٧ - اور ہم نے موسیٰ کی طرف وحی بھیجی کہ ہمارے بندوں کو راتوں رات نکال لے جاؤ پھر ان کے لئے دریا میں (لاٹھی مار کر) خشک رستہ بنا دو پھر تم کو نہ تو (فرعون کے) آپکڑنے کا خوف ہوگا اور نہ (غرق ہونے کا) ڈر .
[20:77] And We had inspired to Moses, "Travel by night with My servants and strike for them a dry path through the sea; you will not fear being overtaken [by Pharaoh] nor be afraid [of drowning]."
