Glorify the name of your Lord, the All-Highest,
Who has created and fashioned,
Who has proportioned and guided,
Who brings forth pasturage,
then turns it into weather-beaten stubble.
We shall make you recite, so do not forget [anything]
except whatever God may wish; He knows the obvious and what is hidden.
We will make it easy for you to take the easy way,
so remind [men], if reminding will benefit [anyone].
Anyone who feels afraid will be reminded
while the unluckiest,
the one who will roast in the greatest Fire, shunts it aside;
then he will neither die in it, nor yet live there.
Anyone who purifies himself,
mentions his Lord´s name and prays, will prosper.
Instead you prefer worldly life
whereas the Hereafter is better and more enduring.
This has been [written] on the earliest scrolls,
the scriptures of Abraham and Moses.
