Holy Quran 87


1GLORIFY THE NAME of your Lord, most high,
2Who creates and proportions,
3Who determines and directs,
4Who brings out the pastures
5Then reduces them to rusty rubbish.
6We shall make you recite (the Qur'an) so that you will not forget it,
7Unless God may please. He knows the visible and knows what is hidden.
8We shall take you slowly towards ease.
9So remind them if reminder is profitable:
10Those who fear will understand.
11Only the wretch will turn aside,
12Who will burn in the terrible Fire,
13In which he will neither die nor live.
14Surely he will succeed who grows in goodness,
15And recites the name of his Lord and serves with devotion.
16But no, you prefer the life of the world,
17Though the life to come is better and abiding.
18This is surely in the earlier Books,
19The Books of Abraham and Moses.
