SURAH AL-A’LA (THE HIGHEST)

MECCAN PERIOD

Division: 20

1-5Purify the sublime name of your Rabb Who formed and proportioned then measured and guided, Who brought out the pastures then made it a pitch-black flood remnant, thrown away.40

6-8Hereafter We will render in you a knowledgebase and make it to be conveyed to the others and you will not forget/abandon. Except what Allah wills. Indeed, He knows what is disclosed and what is hidden. And We will ease for you “The Easiest”/that which will make you happy the most.

9,10Therefore remind immediately, if the reminder benefits/will benefit; the one who is respectful will be reminded. 11And the one who will be the unhappiest will avoid it. 12That one will burn in the greatest fire. 13Then, he will neither die nor live therein.

14-17The one who purifies himself, who fulfills Salah; supports others financially and spiritually; strives to enlighten the community mentioning the name of his Rabb will definitely save himself. But you prefer that simple worldly life. Yet, Akhirat [Afterlife] is better and ever lasting.

18,19Indeed, this recipe of salvation was in the former scriptures; scriptures of Abraham and Moses.

(8/87, Al-A’la/1-19)
