Surah 87

THE MOST HIGH (Al-A'ala)

We'll make you read, Muhammad
Absurdity 87:1-11

1 Praise the name of thy Lord the Most High,

2 Who createth, then disposeth;

3 Who measureth, then guideth;

4 Who bringeth forth the pasturage,

5 Then turneth it to russet stubble.

6 We shall make thee read (O Muhammad) so that thou shalt not forget

7 Save that which Allah willeth. Lo! He knoweth the disclosed and that which still is hidden;

8 And We shall ease thy way unto the state of ease.

9 Therefor remind (men), for of use is the reminder.

10 He will heed who feareth,

11 But the most hapless will flout it,

We [Allah] will make you (Muhammad) read, [1]

so you won't forget.

Those in the great Fire neither live nor die
Cruelty Injustice 87:12-17

12 He who will be flung to the great Fire

13 Wherein he will neither die nor live.

14 He is successful who groweth,

15 And remembereth the name of his Lord, so prayeth,

16 But ye prefer the life of the world

17 Although the Hereafter is better and more lasting.

Those who are flung into the great Fire

will neither live nor die.
