1 . Hallow thou the name of thine Lord, the Most High,
2 . Who hath created and then proportioned,
3 . And Who hath disposed and then guided,
4 . And Who bringeth forth the pasturage,
5 . Then maketh it to stubble dusky.
6 . We shall enable thee to recite, and then thou shalt not forget,
7 . Save that which Allah may will. Verily He knoweth the public and that which is hidden.
8 . And We shall make easy Unto thee the easy way.
9 . Wherefore admonish thou; admonition hath surely profited,
10 . Admonished is he indeed who feareth,
11 . And the wretched shunneth it-.
12 . He Who shall roast into the Great Fire,
13 . Wherein he shall neither die nor live,
14 . He indeed hath attained bliss who hath cleansed himself,
15 . And who remembereth the name of his Lord, and then prayeth.
16 . But ye prefer the life of this world,
17 . Whereas the Hereafter is better and more lasting.
18 . Verily this is in Writs ancient
19 . Writs of Ibrahim and Musa.
