The Most High (Al-Alâ)

In the name of Allah, Gracious, Merciful.

1Glorify the name of your guardian Lord, most high

2Who has created and further given order and proportion;

3Who has ordained laws, and granted guidance;

4And who brings out the pasture.

5And then does make it swarthy stubble.

6By degrees shall We teach you to declare so you shall not forget1

7Except as Allah wills: For He knows what is manifest and what is hidden.

8And We will make it easy for you the simple path.

9Therefore give admonition in case the admonition profits.

10The admonition will be received by those who fear Allah:

11But it will be avoided by those most unfortunate ones.

12Who will enter the great fire

13In which they will then neither die nor live.

14But those will prosper who purify themselves.

15And glorify the name of their Lord in prayer.

16No, you prefer the life of this world;

17But the hereafter is better and more enduring.

18And this is in the books of the earliest revelations.

19The books of Abraham and Moses.2

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim

1Sabihisma rabikal ala

2Alazi halaqa la sawa

3Walazi qadara fa hada

4Wal lazi akhrajal mara

5Fa jaalahu gasa an ahwa

6Sanuqri ula fala tansa

7Ila ma sya allah innahu yalamul jahra wa ma yakhfa

8Wa nuyasiruka lil yusra

9Fazakir innafaatiz zikra

10Sayaz zakaru mayasa

11Wa yatajan nabuhal asqa

12Alazi yaslan naral kubra

13Summa la yamutu fiha wa la yahya

14Qad aflaha man tazaka

15Wa zakarasma rabihi fasala

16Bal tusirunal hayatad dunya

17Wal akhiratu hairu wa abqa

18Inna haza lafis suhufil ula

19Suhufi Ibrahima wa Musa

1. For forgotten passages of the Qur’an, please refer to Qur’an 4:82.

[Commentary continues below.]
















2. One of the six articles of faith is “Belief in the Scriptures”. The belief further teaches that there are 104 Books revealed by God to mankind. Of these 104 Books, Adam brought 10, Seth brought 50, Enoch brought 30 and Abraham brought 10. These however are all lost and only four remain. These four are the Torah of Moses, the Zabura of David, the Injil of Jesus and the Qur’an of Muhammad. It is further claimed that the Qur’an is the Superior of the remaining four and whose contents must be believed above all the other Scriptures. What the Qur’an does not distinguish is that the Psalms were not all the work of David: 73 are ascribed to David, 12 were written by Asaph, 12 by the sons of Korah, two by Solomon, one by Moses, one by Ethan and 49 are by anonymous authors. So to ascribe the authorship of the Psalms to solely to David is totally wrong.
