87:4  who brings forth the green pasture
87:5  then turns it to withered grass
87:6  We shall make you read, so that you shall never forge
87:7  except as God pleases. He has knowledge of the manifest, and the hidden
87:8  We shall guide you to the smoothest path
87:9  Therefore admonish, if admonishment will avail
87:10  He that fears God will pay heed
87:11  but the wretched sinner will flout it
87:12  He shall burn in the gigantic Fire
87:13  wherein shall he then neither die nor live
87:14  Happy shall be he that keeps himself pure
87:15  that remembers the name of his Lord and prays
