1Praise the name of thy Lord the Most High,
2Who createth, then disposeth;
3Who measureth, then guideth;
4Who bringeth forth the pasturage,
5Then turneth it to russet stubble.
6We shall make thee read (O Muhammad) so that thou shalt not forget
7Save that which Allah willeth. Lo! He knoweth the disclosed and that which still is hidden;
8And We shall ease thy way unto the state of ease.
9Therefor remind (men), for of use is the reminder.
10He will heed who feareth,
11But the most hapless will flout it,
12He who will be flung to the great Fire
13Wherein he will neither die nor live.
14He is successful who groweth,
15And remembereth the name of his Lord, so prayeth,
16But ye prefer the life of the world
17Although the Hereafter is better and more lasting.
18Lo! This is in the former scrolls.
19The Books of Abraham and Moses.
