(The Most High) LXXXVII
In the Name of Allâh,
the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
1. Glorify the Name of your Lord, the Most High,
2. Who has created (everything), and then proportioned it.
3. And Who has measured (preordainments for everything even to be blessed or wretched); and then guided (i.e. showed mankind the right as well as the wrong paths, and guided the animals to pasture).
4. And Who brings out the pasturage,
5. And then makes it dark stubble.
6. We shall make you to recite (the Qur’ân), so you (O Muhammad ) shall not forget (it),
7. Except what Allâh may will. He knows what is apparent and what is hidden.
8. And We shall make easy for you (O Muhammad ) the easy way (i.e. the doing of righteous deeds).
9. Therefore remind (men) in case the reminder profits (them).
10. The reminder will be received by him who fears (Allâh),
11. But it will be avoided by the wretched,
12. Who will enter the great Fire (and will be made to taste its burning).
13. There he will neither die (to be in rest) nor live (a good living).
14. Indeed whosoever purifies himself (by avoiding polytheism and accepting Islâmic Monotheism) shall achieve success,
15. And remembers (glorifies) the Name of his Lord (worships none but Allâh), and prays (five compulsory prayers and Nawâfil – additional prayers).
16. Nay, you prefer the life of this world,
17. Although the Hereafter is better and more lasting.
18. Verily, this is in the former Scriptures –
19. The Scriptures of Ibrâhîm (Abraham) and Mûsâ (Moses) ( ).
a) Whoever intended to do a good deed or a bad deed:.
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbâs : The Prophet narrating about his Lord said, “Allâh ordered (the appointed angels over you) that the good and the bad deeds be written, and He then showed (the way) how (to write). If somebody intends to do a good deed and he does not do it, then Allâh will write for him a full good deed (in his account with Him); and if he intends to do a good deed and actually does it, then Allâh will write for him (in his account) with Him (its reward equal) from ten to seven hundred times, to many more times; and if somebody intends to do a bad deed and he does not do it, then Allâh will write a full good deed (in his account) with Him, and if he intends to do it (a bad deed) and actually does it, then Allâh will write one bad deed (in his account).” (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol.8, Hadith No.498)
b) Narrated Abu Hurairah The Prophet said: “Angels come (to you) in succession by night and day, and all of them get together at the time of the Fajr and ‘Asr prayers. Then those who have stayed with you overnight, ascend unto Allâh, Who asks them (and He knows the answer better than they): “How have you left My slaves?” They reply, “We left them while they were praying and we came to them while they were praying.” The Prophet added: “If anyone of you says Amîn (during the prayer at the end of the recitation of Sûrat Al-Fâtihah ), and the angels in heaven say the same, and the two sayings coincide, all his past sins will be forgiven.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol.4, Hadith No. 446).
