To thee by stages.

With constancy to the Command

Of thy Lord morning
And evening,

And glorify Him
A long night through.

The fleeting life,
And put away behind them
A Day (that will be) hard.

But, when We will,
We can substitute
The like of them
By a complete change.

Whosoever will, let him
Take a (straight) Path
To his Lord.

Except as God wills;
For God is full of
Knowledge and Wisdom.

To His Mercy Whom He will;
But the wrong-doers,—
For them has He prepared
A grievous Penalty.
