Ali Ünal - Sura: 87. Al-A'la - The Most High

  1. Glorify the Name of your Lord, the Most High,

  2. Who creates and fashions in due proportions,

  3. And Who determines (a particular life, nature, and goal for each creature), and guides (it toward the fulfillment of that goal);

  4. And Who brings forth herbage,

  5. Then turns it to dark-colored, rotten stubble.

  6. (For the guidance of humankind,) We will establish the Qur’an in your heart and have you recite (it to others), so you will not forget (anything of it)

  7. Except what God wills. Surely He knows all that is manifest and all that is hidden (including your outward and inward states).

  8. We will guide you to the easiest path (in all your affairs).

  9. So remind and instruct (them in the truth), in case reminder and instruction may be of use.

  10. He who stands in awe of God will be mindful of the instruction.

  11. But the most wicked one remains aloof from it;

  12. He who will enter the Great Fire (of Hell) to roast.

  13. He will neither die therein (to be saved from punishment) nor live.

  14. Prosperous indeed is he who purifies himself (of sins, and of his wealth by spending from it in God’s cause and for the needy);

  15. And who mentions the Name of his Lord and does the Prayer.

  16. But you (O humankind) are disposed to prefer the life of this world;

  17. While the Hereafter is better and more lasting .

  18. This is surely contained in the former Scrolls.

  19. The Scrolls of Abraham and Moses.
