Qur'an

 Revealed 8th  

87:1
Exalt the name of your Lord, the Most High,

87:2
Who created and proportioned

87:3
And who destined and [then] guided

87:4
And who brings out the pasture

87:5
And [then] makes it black stubble.

87:6
We will make you recite, and you will not forget,

87:7
Except what God should will.  Indeed, He knows what is declared and what is hidden.

87:8
And We will ease you toward ease.

87:9
So remind, if the reminder should benefit;

87:10
He who fears [God] will be reminded.

87:11
But the wretched one will avoid it -

87:12
[He] who will [enter and] burn in the greatest Fire,

87:13
Neither dying therein nor living.

87:14
He has certainly succeeded who purifies himself

87:15
And mentions the name of his Lord and prays.

87:16
But you prefer the worldly life,

87:17
While the Hereafter is better and more enduring.

87:18
Indeed, this is in the former Scriptures,

87:19
The Scriptures of Abraham and Moses.
