Dr. Mustafa Khattab Ṭâ-Sĩn-Mĩm.

تِلْكَ آيَاتُ الْكِتَابِ الْمُبِينِ
Dr. Mustafa Khattab These are the verses of the clear Book.

لَعَلَّكَ بَاخِعٌ نَفْسَكَ أَلَّا يَكُونُوا مُؤْمِنِينَ
Dr. Mustafa Khattab Perhaps you ˹O Prophet˺ will grieve yourself to death over their disbelief.

إِنْ نَشَأْ نُنَزِّلْ عَلَيْهِمْ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ آيَةً فَظَلَّتْ أَعْنَاقُهُمْ لَهَا خَاضِعِينَ
Dr. Mustafa Khattab If We willed, We could send down upon them a ˹compelling˺ sign from the heavens, leaving their necks bent in ˹utter˺ submission to it.

وَمَا يَأْتِيهِمْ مِنْ ذِكْرٍ مِنَ الرَّحْمَٰنِ مُحْدَثٍ إِلَّا كَانُوا عَنْهُ مُعْرِضِينَ
Dr. Mustafa Khattab Whatever new reminder comes to them from the Most Compassionate, they always turn away from it.

فَقَدْ كَذَّبُوا فَسَيَأْتِيهِمْ أَنْبَاءُ مَا كَانُوا بِهِ يَسْتَهْزِئُونَ ﭿ
Dr. Mustafa Khattab They have certainly denied ˹the truth˺, so they will soon face the consequences of their ridicule.

أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا إِلَى الْأَرْضِ كَمْ أَنْبَتْنَا فِيهَا مِنْ كُلِّ زَوْجٍ كَرِيمٍ
Dr. Mustafa Khattab Have they failed to look at the earth, ˹to see˺ how many types of fine plants We have caused to grow in it?

إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَةً وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ
Dr. Mustafa Khattab Surely in this is a sign. Yet most of them would not believe.

وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ
Dr. Mustafa Khattab And your Lord is certainly the Almighty, Most Merciful.

وَإِذْ نَادَىٰ رَبُّكَ مُوسَىٰ أَنِ ائْتِ الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ
Dr. Mustafa Khattab ˹Remember˺ when your Lord called out to Moses, “Go to the wrongdoing people—

قَوْمَ فِرْعَوْنَ أَلَا يَتَّقُونَ
Dr. Mustafa Khattab the people of Pharaoh. Will they not fear ˹Allah˺?”
