Which had weighed upon your back
For indeed, with hardship [will be] ease.
Indeed, with hardship [will be] ease.
So when you have finished [your duties], then stand up [for worship].
Taught man that which he knew not.
No! [But] indeed, man transgresses
Because he sees himself self-sufficient.
So what yet causes you to deny the Recompense?
Is not Allah the most just of judges?
Recite in the name of your Lord who created -
Created man from a clinging substance.
Recite, and your Lord is the most Generous -
Who taught by the pen -
Have you seen if he is upon guidance
And raised high for you your repute.
And to your Lord direct [your] longing.
By the fig and the olive
And [by] Mount Sinai
And [by] this secure city [Makkah],
Indeed, to your Lord is the return.
Have you seen the one who forbids
A servant when he prays?
Or enjoins righteousness?
We have certainly created man in the best of stature;
Then We return him to the lowest of the low,
Except for those who believe and do righteous deeds, for they will have a reward uninterrupted.
