87. Al-A'la (The Most High)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

[87.1] Glorify the name of your Lord, the Most High,
[87.2] Who creates, then makes complete,
[87.3] And Who makes (things) according to a measure, then guides (them to their goal),
[87.4] And Who brings forth herbage,
[87.5] Then makes it dried up, dust-colored.
[87.6] We will make you recite so you shall not forget,
[87.7] Except what Allah pleases, surely He knows the manifest, and what is hidden.
[87.8] And We will make your way smooth to a state of ease.
[87.9] Therefore do remind, surely reminding does profit.
[87.10] He who fears will mind,
[87.11] And the most unfortunate one will avoid it,
[87.12] Who shall enter the great fire;
[87.13] Then therein he shall neither live nor die.
[87.14] He indeed shall be successful who purifies himself,
[87.15] And magnifies the name of his Lord and prays.
[87.16] Nay! you prefer the life of this world,
[87.17] While the hereafter is better and more lasting.
[87.18] Most surely this is in the earlier scriptures,
[87.19] The scriptures of Ibrahim and Musa.
