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.
