سورة الشرح

Sura Ash-Sharh

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ أَلَمْ نَشْرَحْ لَكَ صَدْرَكَ
[94:1]
Have We not expanded for you your breast,
Have We not expanded thee thy breast?-
Have We not caused thy bosom to dilate,
وَوَضَعْنَا عَنكَ وِزْرَكَ
[94:2]
And taken off from you your burden,
And removed from thee thy burden
And eased thee of the burden
الَّذِي أَنقَضَ ظَهْرَكَ
[94:3]
Which pressed heavily upon your back,
The which did gall thy back?-
Which weighed down thy back;
وَرَفَعْنَا لَكَ ذِكْرَكَ
[94:4]
And exalted for you your esteem?
And raised high the esteem (in which) thou (art held)?
And exalted thy fame?
فَإِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا
[94:5]
Surely with difficulty is ease.
So, verily, with every difficulty, there is relief:
But lo! with hardship goeth ease,
إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا
[94:6]
With difficulty is surely ease.
Verily, with every difficulty there is relief.
Lo! with hardship goeth ease;
فَإِذَا فَرَغْتَ فَانصَبْ
[94:7]
So when you are free, nominate.
Therefore, when thou art free (from thine immediate task), still labour hard,
So when thou art relieved, still toil
وَإِلَى رَبِّكَ فَارْغَبْ
[94:8]
And make your Lord your exclusive object.
And to thy Lord turn (all) thy attention.
And strive to please thy Lord.
