Glorify the name of thy Guardian-Lord, Most High,

2.

ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ فَسَوَّىٰ

3.

وَٱلَّذِى قَدَّرَ فَهَدَىٰ 

Who hath ordained laws. And granted guidance;

4.

وَٱلَّذِىٓ أَخۡرَجَ ٱلۡمَرۡعَىٰ   

And Who bringeth out the (green and luscious) pasture.

5.

فَجَعَلَهُ ۥ غُثَآءً أَحۡوَىٰ   

And then doth make it (but) swarthy stubble.

6.

سَنُقۡرِئُكَ فَلَا تَنسَىٰٓ   

By degrees shall We teach thee to declare (the Message), so thou shalt not forget,

7.

إِلَّا مَا شَآءَ ٱللَّهُ‌ۚ

Except as Allah wills:

إِنَّهُ ۥ يَعۡلَمُ ٱلۡجَهۡرَ وَمَا يَخۡفَىٰ

وَنُيَسِّرُكَ لِلۡيُسۡرَىٰ   

And We will make it easy for thee (to follow) the simple (Path).

9.

فَذَكِّرۡ إِن نَّفَعَتِ ٱلذِّكۡرَىٰ   

Therefore give admonition in case the admonition profits (the hearer).

10.

سَيَذَّكَّرُ مَن يَخۡشَىٰ   

The admonition will be received by those who fear (Allah):

11.

وَيَتَجَنَّبُہَا ٱلۡأَشۡقَى   

But it will be avoided by those most unfortunate ones.

12.

ٱلَّذِى يَصۡلَى ٱلنَّارَ ٱلۡكُبۡرَىٰ   

Who will enter the Great Fire,

13.

ثُمَّ لَا يَمُوتُ فِيہَا وَلَا يَحۡيَىٰ   

In which they will then neither die nor live.

14.

قَدۡ أَفۡلَحَ مَن تَزَكَّىٰ  

But those will prosper who purify themselves.

15.

وَذَكَرَ ٱسۡمَ رَبِّهِۦ فَصَلَّىٰ   

And glorify the name of their Guardian-Lord, and (lift their hearts) in Prayer.

16.

بَلۡ تُؤۡثِرُونَ ٱلۡحَيَوٰةَ ٱلدُّنۡيَا 

Nay (behold), ye prefer the life of this world;

17.

وَٱلۡأَخِرَةُ خَيۡرٌ۬ وَأَبۡقَىٰٓ   

But the Hereafter is better and more enduring.

18.

إِنَّ هَـٰذَا لَفِى ٱلصُّحُفِ ٱلۡأُولَىٰ   

And this is in the Books of the earliest (Revelations) --

19.

صُحُفِ إِبۡرَٲهِيمَ وَمُوسَىٰ   

The Books of Abraham and Moses.
