Sūra XCIV.

Inshirāḥ, or The Expansion.

In the name of God, Most Gracious,
Most Merciful.

1. Have We not
Expanded thee thy breast?—

2. And removed from thee
Thy burden

3. The which did gall
Thy back?—

4. And raised high the esteem
(In which) thou (art held)?

With every difficulty,
There is relief:

6. Verily, with every difficulty
There is relief.

Free (from thine immediate task),
Still labour hard,

8. And to thy Lord
Turn (all) thy attention.
