THE MOST HIGH, GLORY TO YOUR LORD IN THE HIGHEST,
CHAPTER NO. 087
With the Name of Allah, the Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer
087.001 Glorify the name of thy Guardian-Lord Most High,
087.002 Who hath created, and further, given order and proportion;
087.003 Who hath ordained laws. And granted guidance;
087.004 And Who bringeth out the (green and luscious) pasture,
087.005 And then doth make it (but) swarthy stubble.
087.006 By degrees shall We teach thee to declare (the Message), so thou shalt not forget,
087.007 Except as Allah wills: For He knoweth what is manifest and what is hidden.
087.008 And We will make it easy for thee (to follow) the simple (Path).
087.009 Therefore give admonition in case the admonition profits (the hearer).
087.010 The admonition will be received by those who fear (Allah):
087.011 But it will be avoided by those most unfortunate ones,
087.012 Who will enter the Great Fire,
087.013 In which they will then neither die nor live.
087.014 But those will prosper who purify themselves,
087.015 And glorify the name of their Guardian-Lord, and (lift their hearts) in prayer.
087.016 Day (behold), ye prefer the life of this world;
087.017 But the Hereafter is better and more enduring.
087.018 And this is in the Books of the earliest (Revelation),-
087.019 The Books of Abraham and Moses.
