87. The Most High


In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

  1. Glorify the name of thy Guardian-LordMost High,

  2. Who hath created, and further, givenorder and proportion;

  3. Who hath ordained laws. And grantedguidance;

  4. And Who bringeth out the (green andluscious) pasture,

  5. And then doth make it (but) swarthystubble.

  6. By degrees shall We teach thee todeclare (the Message), so thou shalt not forget,

  7. Except as Allah wills: For He knowethwhat is manifest and what is hidden.

  8. And We will make it easy for thee (tofollow) the simple (Path).

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

  10. The admonition will be received by thosewho fear ((Allah)):

  11. But it will be avoided by those mostunfortunate ones,

  12. Who will enter the Great Fire,

  13. In which they will then neither die norlive.

  14. But those will prosper who purifythemselves,

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

  16. Day (behold), ye prefer the life of thisworld;

  17. But the Hereafter is better and moreenduring.

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

  19. The Books of Abraham and Moses.
