;

1 . Glorify the name of thy Guardian-Lord Most High,

2 . Who hath created, and further, given order and proportion;

3 . Who hath ordained laws. And granted guidance;

4 . And Who bringeth out the (green and luscious) pasture,

5 . And then doth make it (but) swarthy stubble.

6 . By degrees shall We teach thee to declare (the Message), so thou shalt not forget,

7 . Except as Allah wills: For He knoweth what is manifest and what is hidden.

8 . And We will make it easy for thee (to follow) the simple (Path).

9 . Therefore give admonition in case the admonition profits (the hearer).

10 . The admonition will be received by those who fear (Allah):

11 . But it will be avoided by those most unfortunate ones,

12 . Who will enter the Great Fire,

13 . In which they will then neither die nor live.

14 . But those will prosper who purify themselves,

15 . And glorify the name of their Guardian-Lord, and (lift their hearts) in prayer.

16 . Day (behold), ye prefer the life of this world;

17 . But the Hereafter is better and more enduring.

18 . And this is in the Books of the earliest (Revelation),-

19 . The Books of Abraham and Moses.
