87: Al-Ala (الأعلى)
1: Glorify the name of your Lord, the Most High,
2: Who creates, then makes complete,
3: And Who makes (things) according to a measure, then guides (them to their goal),
4: And Who brings forth herbage,
5: Then makes it dried up, dust-colored.
6: We will make you recite so you shall not forget,
7: Except what Allah pleases, surely He knows the manifest, and what is hidden.
8: And We will make your way smooth to a state of ease.
9: Therefore do remind, surely reminding does profit.
10: He who fears will mind,
11: And the most unfortunate one will avoid it,
12: Who shall enter the great fire;
13: Then therein he shall neither live nor die.
14: He indeed shall be successful who purifies himself,
15: And magnifies the name of his Lord and prays.
16: Nay! you prefer the life of this world,
17: While the hereafter is better and more lasting.
18: Most surely this is in the earlier scriptures,
19: The scriptures of Ibrahim and Musa.
