Surah 87. The Most High, Glory To Your Lord In The Highest
87:1. Glorify the name of thy Guardian-Lord Most High,
87:2. Who hath created, and further, given order and proportion;
87:3. Who hath ordained Laws. And granted Guidance;
87:4. And Who bringeth out the (green and luscious) pasture,
87:5. And then doth make it (only swarthy stubble).
87:6. By degrees shall We teach thee to declare (the Message), so thou shalt not forget,
87:7. Except as "I AM" wills: for He knoweth what is manifest and what is hidden.
87:8. And We will make it easy for thee (to follow) The simple (Way).
87:9. Therefore give warning in case the warning profits (the hearer).
87:10. The warning will be received by those who fear "I AM":
87:11. But it will be avoided by those most unfortunate ones,
87:12. Who will enter the Great Fire,
87:13. In which they will then neither die nor live.
87:14. But those will prosper who PURIFY their "self",
87:15. And glorify the name of their Guardian-Lord, and (lift their hearts) in Prayer.
87:16. Nay (behold), ye prefer the life of this world;
87:17. But the Hereafter is better and more enduring.
87:18. And this is in the Books of the earliest (Revelations),-
87:19. The Books of Abraham and Moses.
