Al-Ala - The Most High, Glory To Your Lord In The Highest - Meccan

  1. In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

  2. 87:1 Glorify the name of thy Guardian-Lord Most High,

  3. 87:2 Who hath created, and further, given order and proportion;

  4. 87:3 Who hath ordained laws. And granted guidance;

  5. 87:4 And Who bringeth out the (green and luscious) pasture,

  6. 87:5 And then doth make it (but) swarthy stubble.

  7. 87:6 By degrees shall We teach thee to declare (the Message), so thou shalt not forget,

  8. 87:7 Except as Allah wills: For He knoweth what is manifest and what is hidden.

  9. 87:8 And We will make it easy for thee (to follow) the simple (Path).

  10. 87:9 Therefore give admonition in case the admonition profits (the hearer).

  11. 87:10 The admonition will be received by those who fear (Allah):

  12. 87:11 But it will be avoided by those most unfortunate ones,

  13. 87:12 Who will enter the Great Fire,

  14. 87:13 In which they will then neither die nor live.

  15. 87:14 But those will prosper who purify themselves,

  16. 87:15 And glorify the name of their Guardian-Lord, and (lift their hearts) in prayer.

  17. 87:16 Day (behold), ye prefer the life of this world;

  18. 87:17 But the Hereafter is better and more enduring.

  19. 87:18 And this is in the Books of the earliest (Revelation),-

  20. 87:19 The Books of Abraham and Moses.
