George Sale rendition of Surah The Most High, Glory to your Lord in the Highest(al-A`la)
87:1 Praise the name of thy Lord, the most high;
87:2 Who hath created, and completely formed his creatures:
87:3 And Who determineth them to various ends, and directeth them to attain the same;
87:4 and who produceth the pasture for cattle,
87:5 and afterwards rendereth the same dry stubble of a dusky hue.
87:6 We will enable thee to rehearse our revelations; and thou shalt not forget any part thereof,
87:7 except what God shall please; for He knoweth that which is manifest, and that which is hidden.
87:8 And We will facilitate unto thee the most easy way.
87:9 Wherefore admonish thy people, if thy admonition shall be profitable unto them.
87:10 Whoso feareth God, he will be admonished:
87:11 But the most wretched unbeliever will turn away therefrom;
87:12 who shall be cast to be broiled in the greater fire of hell,
87:13 wherein he shall not die, neither shall he live.
87:14 Now hath he attained felicity who is purified by faith,
87:15 and who remembereth the name of his Lord, and prayeth.
87:16 But ye prefer this present life:
87:17 Yet the life to come is better, and more durable.
87:18 Verily this is written in the ancient books,
87:19 the books of Abraham and Moses.
