Sura 87:  The Most High (Al-A`alaa)

Number of verses in sura: 19
Order of revelation: 8

[87:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[87:1]  Glorify the name of your Lord, the Most High.

[87:2]  He creates and shapes.

[87:3]  He designs and guides.

[87:4]  He produces the pasture.

[87:5]  Then turns it into light hay.

[87:6]  We will recite to you; do not forget.

[87:7]  Everything is in accordance with GOD's will; He knows what is declared, and what is hidden.

[87:8]  We will direct you to the easiest path.

[87:9]  Therefore, you shall remind; perhaps the reminder will benefit.

[87:10]  The reverent will take heed.

[87:11]  The wicked will avoid it.

[87:12]  Consequently, he will suffer the great Hellfire.

[87:13]  Wherein he never dies, nor stays alive.

[87:14]  Successful indeed is the one who redeems his soul.

[87:15]  By remembering the name of his Lord and observing the contact prayers (Salat).

[87:16]  Indeed, you are preoccupied with this first life.

[87:17]  Even though the Hereafter is far better and everlasting.

[87:18]  This is recorded in the earlier teachings.

[87:19]  The teachings of Abraham and Moses.
