Did you notice?
87:1  Glorify the name of your Lord, the All-Highest,
87:2  Who has created and fashioned,
87:3  Who has proportioned and guided,
87:4  Who brings forth pasturage,
87:5  then turns it into weather-beaten stubble.
87:6  We shall make you recite, so do not forget [anything]
87:7  except whatever God may wish; He knows the obvious and what is hidden.
87:8  We will make it easy for you to take the easy way,
87:9  so remind [men], if reminding will benefit [anyone].
87:10  Anyone who feels afraid will be reminded
87:11  while the unluckiest,
87:12  the one who will roast in the greatest Fire, shunts it aside;
87:13  then he will neither die in it, nor yet live there.
87:14  Anyone who purifies himself,
87:15  mentions his Lord´s name and prays, will prosper.
87:16  Instead you prefer worldly life
87:17  whereas the Hereafter is better and more enduring.
87:18  This has been [written] on the earliest scrolls,
87:19  the scriptures of Abraham and Moses.
