Arthur John Arberry rendition of Surah The Most High, Glory to your Lord in the Highest(al-A`la)
87:1 Magnify the Name of thy Lord the Most High
87:2 who created and shaped,
87:3 who determined and guided,
87:4 who brought forth the pasturage
87:5 then made it a blackening wrack.
87:6 We shall make thee recite, to forget not
87:7 save what God wills; surely He knows what is spoken aloud and what is hidden.
87:8 We shall ease thee unto the Easing.
87:9 Therefore remind, if the Reminder profits,
87:10 and he who fears shall remember,
87:11 but the most wretched shall flout it,
87:12 even he who shall roast in the Great Fire,
87:13 then he shall neither die therein, nor live.
87:14 Prosperous is he who has cleansed himself,
87:15 and mentions the Name of his Lord, and prays.
87:16 Nay, but you prefer the present life;
87:17 and the world to come is better, and more enduring.
87:18 Surely this is in the ancient scrolls,
87:19 the scrolls of Abraham and Moses.
