010 - Soorah Yoonus - ((Prophet) Jonah) - [Makkee]
[010:079] And Fir'aun (Pharaoh) said: "Bring me every well-versed sorcerer."
[010:080] And when the sorcerers came, Mūsā (Moses) said to them: "Cast down what you want to cast!"
[010:081] Then when they had cast down, Mūsā (Moses) said: "What you have brought is sorcery, Allāh will surely make it of no effect. Verily, Allāh does not set right the work of Al-Mufsidūn (the evildoers and corrupters).
[010:082] "And Allāh will establish and make apparent the truth by His Words, however much the Mujrimūn (criminals, disbelievers, polytheists and sinners) may hate (it)."
[010:083] But none believed in Mūsā (Moses) except (some) offspring of his people, because of the fear of Fir'aun (Pharaoh) and their chiefs, lest he should persecute them; and verily, Fir'aun (Pharaoh) was an arrogant tyrant on the earth, he was indeed one of the Musrifūn (polytheists, sinners and transgressors, those who give up the truth and follow the evil, and commit all kinds of great sins).
[010:084] And Mūsā (Moses) said: "O my people! If you have believed in Allāh, then put your trust in Him if you are Muslims (those who submit to Allāh's Will)."
[010:085] They said: "In Allāh we put our trust. Our Lord! Make us not a trial for the folk who are Zālimūn (polytheists and wrong doers) (i.e. do not make them overpower us).
[010:086] "And save us by Your Mercy from the disbelieving folk."
[010:087] And We revealed to Mūsā (Moses) and his brother (saying): "Provide dwellings for your people in Egypt, and make your dwellings as places for your worship, and perform As-Salāt (the prayers), and give glad tidings to the believers."
[010:088] And Mūsā (Moses) said: "Our Lord! You have indeed bestowed on Fir'aun (Pharaoh) and his chiefs splendour and wealth in the life of this world, our Lord! That they may lead men astray from Your path. Our Lord! Destroy their wealth, and harden their hearts, so that they will not believe until they see the painful torment."
