Quran Chapter 87


The Most High

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

[87.1] Glorify the name of your Lord, the Most High, [87.2] Who creates, then makes complete, [87.3] And Who makes (things) according to a measure, then guides (them to their goal), [87.4] And Who brings forth herbage, [87.5] Then makes it dried up, dust-colored. [87.6] We will make you recite so you shall not forget, [87.7] Except what Allah pleases, surely He knows the manifest, and what is hidden. [87.8] And We will make your way smooth to a state of ease. [87.9] Therefore do remind, surely reminding does profit.

[87.10] He who fears will mind, [87.11] And the most unfortunate one will avoid it, [87.12] Who shall enter the great fire; [87.13] Then therein he shall neither live nor die. [87.14] He indeed shall be successful who purifies himself, [87.15] And magnifies the name of his Lord and prays. [87.16] Nay! you prefer the life of this world, [87.17] While the hereafter is better and more lasting. [87.18] Most surely this is in the earlier scriptures, [87.19] The scriptures of Ibrahim and Musa.
