[87.1] Praise the name of
thy Lord the Most High,
[87.2] Who createth, then disposeth;
[87.3] Who measureth, then guideth;
[87.4] Who bringeth forth the pasturage,
[87.5] Then turneth it to russet stubble.
[87.6] We shall make thee read (O Muhammad) so that thou shalt
[87.7] Save that which Allah willeth. Lo! He knoweth the
disclosed and that which still is hidden;
[87.8] And We shall ease thy way unto the state of ease.
[87.9] Therefor remind (men), for of use is the reminder.
[87.10] He will heed who feareth,
[87.11] But the most hapless will flout it,
[87.12] He who will be flung to the great Fire
[87.13] Wherein he will neither die nor live.
[87.14] He is successful who groweth,
[87.15] And remembereth the name of his Lord, so prayeth,
[87.16] But ye prefer the life of the world
[87.17] Although the Hereafter is better and more lasting.
[87.18] Lo! This is in the former scrolls.
[87.19] The Books of Abraham and Moses.
