In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

87:1. Glorify the name of thy Guardian-Lord Most High,

87:2. Who hath created, and further, given order and proportion;

87:3. Who hath ordained laws. And granted guidance;

87:4. And Who bringeth out the (green and luscious) pasture,

87:5. And then doth make it (but) swarthy stubble.

87:6. By degrees shall We teach thee to declare (the Message), so thou shalt not forget,

87:7. Except as God wills: For He knoweth what is manifest and what is hidden.

87:8. And We will make it easy for thee (to follow) the simple (Path).

87:9. Therefore give admonition in case the admonition profits (the hearer).

87:10. The admonition will be received by those who fear (God):

87:11. But it will be avoided by those most unfortunate ones,

87:12. Who will enter the Great Fire,

87:13. In which they will then neither die nor live.

87:14. But those will prosper who purify themselves,

87:15. And glorify the name of their Guardian-Lord, and (lift their hearts) in prayer.

87:16. Day (behold), ye prefer the life of this world;

87:17. But the Hereafter is better and more enduring.

87:18. And this is in the Books of the earliest (Revelation),-

87:19. The Books of Abraham and Moses.
