Extol the holiness of the name of your Lord, the Most High.
Who creates (all things) and gives (them) suitable and perfect shapes.
Who determines (the capacities and faculties) and furnishes them with (appropriate) guidance to achieve the final goal.
And Who brings forth the pasturage,
And then turns it into dried up rubbish, gray coloured.
We will soon teach (you and) make you recite (the Qur´ân) so that you shall not forget (any part of it).
Except whatever (other things which) Allâh will (and which things you are apt to forget as a human being). Indeed He knows all that is manifest and all that is hidden.
And We shall provide you (every) facility and make things easy for you.
Therefore keep on reminding (the people), surely reminding does good.
He who stands in awe (of God) will heed,
But the person steeped in wickedness goes on avoiding it.
He who will enter the great Fire,
Then he shall neither die therein nor live.
Verily, that person who purifies himself truly will succeed (both in this life and in the Hereafter),
And remembers and extols the name of his Lord and offers Prayers.
But the fact is that you people prefer the present life,
Though the (the life in) the Hereafter is much better and more lasting.
These (teachings) are so stated in the earlier Scriptures;
The Scriptures of Abraham and Moses.
