The Holy Qur'an (Maulana Muhammad Ali)/94. The Expansion
94. The Expansion (Al-Inshirah)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
1 Have We not expanded for thee thy breast,
2 And removed from thee thy burden,
3 Which weighed down thy back,
4 And exalted for thee thy mention?
5 Surely with difficulty is ease,
6 With difficulty is surely ease:
7 So when thou art free (from anxiety), work hard,
8 And make thy Lord thy exclusive object.
