Chapter 87:
Al-A'la — The Most High:

Revealed at Makkah: 19 verses

English Translation of the Holy Quran by Maulana Muhammad Ali


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

87:1 Glorify the name of thy Lord, the Most High!

87:2 Who creates, then makes complete,

87:3 And Who measures, then guides,

87:4 And Who brings forth herbage,

87:5 Then makes it dried up, dust-coloured.

87:6 We shall make thee recite so thou shalt not forget —

87:7 Except what Allah please. Surely He knows the manifest, and what is hidden.

87:8 And We shall make thy way smooth to a state of ease.

87:9 So remind, reminding indeed profits.

87:10 He who fears will mind,

87:11 And the most unfortunate one will avoid it,

87:12 Who will burn in the great Fire.

87:13 Then therein he will neither live nor die.

87:14 He indeed is successful who purifies himself,

87:15 And remembers the name of his Lord, then prays.

87:16 But, you prefer the life of this world,

87:17 While the Hereafter is better and more lasting.

87:18 Surely this is in the earlier scriptures,

87:19 The scriptures of Abraham and Moses.
