Introduction to the Sura:
Sura TAhA, which is one of the Meccan suras, contains 135 verses and its
content, like other Meccan suras, is mostly about 'Origin and End'.
This holy Sura is the first Sura of the Qur'an which has explained the Story
of Moses (a.s.) in details, and about 80 verses of it have been stated in this
regard. A part of the Sura is upon the greatness of the Qur'an and the
attributes of Allah, while another part of it relates to the story of Adam and
Eve and the temptations of Satan. And, finally, there have been stated some
awakening advices in this holy Sura.
Imam Sadiq (a.s.) says: “He who continues reciting Sura 'TAHA' will be
loved by Allah (s.w.t.) and, on the Day of Resurrection, his book of deeds will
be given to his right hand…”(1)
