Invitation to a beautiful recitation from the Quran

I invite you to listen to this beautiful recitation of the Quran, the Final Testament. This is the 87th chapter of the Quran. One of my most favorite chapter. The original language of Quran is Arabic. This recitation is accompanied by english translation.

I mention the translation below (although the Quran being divine revelation can not be translated exactly to its mystical meanings. The language in which it is originally inspired is unparallel)

The Quran, Chapater 87:: AL-ALA (Glory to your Lord, the Most High)

In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.

Glorify the name of your Lord, the Most High,

Who creates, then makes complete,

And Who makes (things) according to a measure, then guides (them to their goal)

And Who brings forth herbage,

Then makes it dried up, dust-colored.

We will make you recite so you shall not forget,

Except what Allah pleases, surely He knows the manifest, and what is hidden.

And We will make your way smooth to a state of ease.

Therefore do remind, surely reminding does profit.

He who awes will mind,

And the most unfortunate one will avoid it,

Who shall enter the great fire;

Then therein he shall neither live nor die.

He indeed shall be successful who purifies himself,

And magnifies the name of his Lord and prays.

Nay! you prefer the life of this world,

While the hereafter is better and more lasting.

Most surely this is in the earlier scripture.

The scriptures of Ibrahim and Musa.
