IN THE NAME OF GOD, THE MOST GRACIOUS, THE DISPENSER OF GRACE:
Glorify Allah, Al-Quran will remain as is, those who heed its reminders will be successful in the hereafter
1 EXTOL the limitless glory of thy Sustainer's name: [the glory of] the All-Highest,
2 who creates [every thing], and thereupon forms it in accordance with what it is meant to be,1
3 and who determines the nature [of all that exists],2 and thereupon guides it [towards its fulfilment],
4 and who brings forth herbage,
5 and thereupon causes it to decay into rust-brown stubble!3
6 WE SHALL teach thee, and thou wilt not forget [aught of what thou art taught],
7 save what God may will [thee to forget]4 - for, verily, He [alone] knows all that is open to [man's] perception as well as all that is hidden [from it]5 -:
8 and [thus] shall We make easy for thee the path towards [ultimate] ease.6
9 REMIND, THEN, [others of the truth, regardless of] whether this reminding [would seem to] be of use [or not]:7
10 in mind will keep it he who stands in awe [of God],
11 but aloof from it will remain that most hapless wretch -
12 he who [in the life to come] shall have to endure the great fire
13 wherein he will neither die nor remain alive.8
14 To happiness [in the life to come] will indeed attain he who attains to purity [in this world],
15 and remembers his Sustainer's name, and prays [unto Him].
16 But nay, [0 men,] you prefer the life of this world,
17 although the life to come is better and more enduring
18 Verily, [all] this has indeed been [said] in the earlier revelations -
19 the revelations of Abraham and Moses.9
