;

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.
