Glorify the Name of thy Lord, The Lofty
Who created and shaped
and who ordained and, then, guided
and who brought out the pasture
then, made it dark colored refuse.
We will make thee recite and thou wilt not forget
but what God willed. Truly, He knows the openly published and whatever is
And We will make easy for thee an easing.
So remind if a reminder profited them
Whoever dreads God
but the disappointed will scorn it—
even he who will roast in the great fire,
again, neither dying in it nor living.
He, surely, prospered, he who purified himself,
and remembered the Name of his Lord and invoked blessings.
Nay! You hold this present life in greater favor,
yet the world to come is better, and one that endures.
Truly, this is in the previous scrolls,
the scrolls of Abraham and Moses.
