Holy Quran Verses from Pickthall's Translation

Surah 'A'-laa: The Most High

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

087.001 Praise the name of thy Lord the Most High,
087.002 Who createth, then disposeth;
087.003 Who measureth, then guideth;
087.004 Who bringeth forth the pasturage,
087.005 Then turneth it to russet stubble.
087.006 We shall make thee read (O Muhammad) so that thou shalt not forget
087.007 Save that which Allah willeth. Lo! He knoweth the disclosed and that which still is hidden;
087.008 And We shall ease thy way unto the state of ease.
087.009 Therefor remind (men), for of use is the reminder.
087.010 He will heed who feareth,
087.011 But the most hapless will flout it,
087.012 He who will be flung to the great Fire
087.013 Wherein he will neither die nor live.
087.014 He is successful who groweth,
087.015 And remembereth the name of his Lord, so prayeth,
087.016 But ye prefer the life of the world
087.017 Although the Hereafter is better and more lasting.
087.018 Lo! This is in the former scrolls.
087.019 The Books of Abraham and Moses.


Let us pray (Sura 20, Ayat 114) 'Ya Rabbi Zidni Ilma!' ('O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.') and seek spiritual help (ta'yid) to understand our great faith.
