Surah Al-A'la: The Most High
Revealed at Makkah
With the name of Allah, most Gracious, most Rewarding
GLORIFY the name of your Rabb, the most High,
Who creates, then He perfects;
and Who measures, and guides;
and Who brings forth herbage,
then renders it dried up, gray-colored.
We shall soon make you recite, so you will not forget—
except whatever Allah please. He indeed knows the manifest, and what is hidden.
And We shall ease for you with easing.
Therefore go on reminding; surely the Reminder brings benefit.
He will soon mind who fears,
but the evil-minded will avoid it,
who will undergo roasting in the great Fire.
And then he will not die in it, nor will he live.
He indeed succeeds who purifies himself,
and remembers the name of his Rabb, and performs Salat.
In fact, you prefer the life of this world,
while the Hereafter is better and more lasting.
Surely this is in the earlier Scrolls—
the Scrolls of Ibrahim and Musa.
