Surah Al-A'la: The Most High

Revealed at Makkah



With the name of Allah, most Gracious, most Rewarding


87:1
GLORIFY the name of your Rabb, the most High,


87:2
Who creates, then He perfects;


87:3
and Who measures, and guides;


87:4
and Who brings forth herbage,


87:5
then renders it dried up, gray-colored.


87:6
We shall soon make you recite, so you will not forget—


87:7
except whatever Allah please. He indeed knows the manifest, and what is hidden.


87:8
And We shall ease for you with easing.


87:9
Therefore go on reminding; surely the Reminder brings benefit.


87:10
He will soon mind who fears,


87:11
but the evil-minded will avoid it,


87:12
who will undergo roasting in the great Fire.


87:13
And then he will not die in it, nor will he live.


87:14
He indeed succeeds who purifies himself,


87:15
and remembers the name of his Rabb, and performs Salat.


87:16
In fact, you prefer the life of this world,


87:17
while the Hereafter is better and more lasting.


87:18
Surely this is in the earlier Scrolls—


87:19
the Scrolls of Ibrahim and Musa.
