87:1Praise the Name of your Lord, the Most High.

87:2He who creates and regulates.

87:3He who measures and guides.

87:4He who produces the pasture.

87:5And then turns it into light debris.

87:6We will make you read, so do not forget.

87:7Except what God wills. He knows what is declared, and what is hidden.

87:8We will ease you into the Easy Way.

87:9So remind, if reminding helps.

87:10The reverent will remember.

87:11But the wretched will avoid it.

87:12He who will enter the Gigantic Fire.

87:13Where he will neither die, nor live.

87:14Successful is he who purifies himself.

87:15And mentions the name of his Lord, and prays.

87:16But you prefer the present life.

87:17Though the Hereafter is better, and more lasting.

87:18This is in the former scriptures.

87:19The Scriptures of Abraham and Moses.
