John Medows Rodwell 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 balanced all things,
87:3 Who hath fixed their destinies and guideth them,
87:4 Who bringeth forth the pasture,
87:5 And reduceth it to dusky stubble.
87:6 We will teach thee to recite the Koran, nor aught shalt thou forget,
87:7 Save what God pleaseth; for he knoweth alike things manifest and hidden;
87:8 And we will make easy to thee our easy ways.
87:9 Warn, therefore, for the warning is profitable:
87:10 He that feareth God will receive the warning, -
87:11 And the most reprobate only will turn aside from it,
87:12 Who shall be exposed to the terrible fire,
87:13 In which he shall not die, and shall not live.
87:14 Happy he who is purified by Islam,
87:15 And who remembereth the name of his Lord and prayeth.
87:16 But ye prefer this present life,
87:17 Though the life to come is better and more enduring.
87:18 This truly is in the Books of old,
87:19 The Books of Abraham and Moses.
