Quran & Tafseer, The Noble Quran / Thursday, April 9th, 2009

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

سَبِّحْ اسْمَ رَبِّكَ الأَعْلَى (1)

[87:1] Pronounce the purity of the name of your most exalted Lord,

الَّذِي خَلَقَ فَسَوَّى (2)

[87:2] who created (everything), then made (it) well,

وَالَّذِي قَدَّرَ فَهَدَى (3)

[87:3] and who determined a measure (for everything), then guided (it),

وَالَّذِي أَخْرَجَ الْمَرْعَى (4)

[87:4] and who brought forth pasturage,

فَجَعَلَهُ غُثَاءً أَحْوَى (5)

[87:5] then turned it into a blackening stubble.

سَنُقْرِئُكَ فَلا تَنسَى (6)

[87:6] We will make you recite, then you will not forget

إِلاَّ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ إِنَّهُ يَعْلَمُ الْجَهْرَ وَمَا يَخْفَى (7)

[87:7] except that which Allah wills. Indeed He knows what is manifest and what is hidden.

وَنُيَسِّرُكَ لِلْيُسْرَى (8)

[87:8] And We will facilitate for you (to reach) the easiest way.

فَذَكِّرْ إِنْ نَفَعَتْ الذِّكْرَى (9)

[87:9] So, extend advice (to people) if advice is useful.

سَيَذَّكَّرُ مَنْ يَخْشَى (10)

[87:10] The one who fears (Allah) will observe the advice,

وَيَتَجَنَّبُهَا الأَشْقَى (11)

[87:11] and it will be avoided by the most wretched one

الَّذِي يَصْلَى النَّارَ الْكُبْرَى (12)

[87:12] who will enter the Biggest Fire,

ثُمَّ لا يَمُوتُ فِيهَا وَلا يَحْيَا (13)

[87:13] then he will neither die therein, nor live (a desirable life).

قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَنْ تَزَكَّى (14)

[87:14] Success is surely achieved by him who purifies himself,

وَذَكَرَ اسْمَ رَبِّهِ فَصَلَّى (15)

[87:15] and pronounces the name of his Lord, then offers prayer.

بَلْ تُؤْثِرُونَ الْحَيَاةَ الدُّنْيَا (16)

[87:16] But you prefer the worldly life,

وَالآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ وَأَبْقَى (17)

[87:17] while the Hereafter is much better and much more durable.

إِنَّ هَذَا لَفِي الصُّحُفِ الأُولَى (18)

[87:18] Indeed this is (written) in the earlier divine scripts,

صُحُفِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَمُوسَى (19)

[87:19] the scripts of Ibrāhīm and Mūsā.
