1 . Praise the name of thy Lord the Most High,
2 . Who createth, then disposeth;
3 . Who measureth, then guideth;
4 . Who bringeth forth the pasturage,
5 . Then turneth it to russet stubble.
6 . We shall make thee read (O Muhammad) so that thou shalt not forget
7 . Save that which Allah willeth. Lo! He knoweth the disclosed and that which still is hidden;
8 . And We shall ease thy way unto the state of ease.
9 . Therefor remind (men), for of use is the reminder.
10 . He will heed who feareth,
11 . But the most hapless will flout it,
12 . He who will be flung to the great Fire
13 . Wherein he will neither die nor live.
14 . He is successful who groweth,
15 . And remembereth the name of his Lord, so prayeth,
16 . But ye prefer the life of the world
17 . Although the Hereafter is better and more lasting.
18 . Lo! This is in the former scrolls.
19 . The Books of Abraham and Moses.
