Surah Al-A'la ( The Most High )


Surah Al-A'la ( The Most High ) - Aya count 19

سَبِّحِ ٱسْمَ رَبِّكَ ٱلْأَعْلَى ﴿١﴾

Exalt the name of your Lord, the Most High,

ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ فَسَوَّىٰ ﴿٢﴾

Who created and proportioned

وَٱلَّذِى قَدَّرَ فَهَدَىٰ ﴿٣﴾

And who destined and [then] guided

وَٱلَّذِىٓ أَخْرَجَ ٱلْمَرْعَىٰ ﴿٤﴾

And who brings out the pasture

فَجَعَلَهُۥ غُثَآءً أَحْوَىٰ ﴿٥﴾

And [then] makes it black stubble.

سَنُقْرِئُكَ فَلَا تَنسَىٰٓ ﴿٦﴾

We will make you recite, [O Muhammad], and you will not forget,

إِلَّا مَا شَآءَ ٱللَّهُ ۚ إِنَّهُۥ يَعْلَمُ ٱلْجَهْرَ وَمَا يَخْفَىٰ ﴿٧﴾

Except what Allah should will. Indeed, He knows what is declared and what is hidden.

وَنُيَسِّرُكَ لِلْيُسْرَىٰ ﴿٨﴾

And We will ease you toward ease.

فَذَكِّرْ إِن نَّفَعَتِ ٱلذِّكْرَىٰ ﴿٩﴾

So remind, if the reminder should benefit;

سَيَذَّكَّرُ مَن يَخْشَىٰ ﴿١٠﴾

He who fears [Allah] will be reminded.

وَيَتَجَنَّبُهَا ٱلْأَشْقَى ﴿١١﴾

But the wretched one will avoid it -

ٱلَّذِى يَصْلَى ٱلنَّارَ ٱلْكُبْرَىٰ ﴿١٢﴾

[He] who will [enter and] burn in the greatest Fire,

ثُمَّ لَا يَمُوتُ فِيهَا وَلَا يَحْيَىٰ ﴿١٣﴾

Neither dying therein nor living.

قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَن تَزَكَّىٰ ﴿١٤﴾

He has certainly succeeded who purifies himself

وَذَكَرَ ٱسْمَ رَبِّهِۦ فَصَلَّىٰ ﴿١٥﴾

And mentions the name of his Lord and prays.

بَلْ تُؤْثِرُونَ ٱلْحَيَوٰةَ ٱلدُّنْيَا ﴿١٦﴾

But you prefer the worldly life,

وَٱلْءَاخِرَةُ خَيْرٌۭ وَأَبْقَىٰٓ ﴿١٧﴾

While the Hereafter is better and more enduring.

إِنَّ هَٰذَا لَفِى ٱلصُّحُفِ ٱلْأُولَىٰ ﴿١٨﴾

Indeed, this is in the former scriptures,

صُحُفِ إِبْرَٰهِيمَ وَمُوسَىٰ ﴿١٩﴾

The scriptures of Abraham and Moses.
