.Sura 94 | The Expansion |
    Yusuf Ali Pickthal Shakir  
  1 Have We not expanded thee thy breast?- Have We not caused thy bosom to dilate, Have We not expanded for you your breast,  
  2 And removed from thee thy burden And eased thee of the burden And taken off from you your burden,  
  3 The which did gall thy back?- Which weighed down thy back; Which pressed heavily upon your back,  
  4 And raised high the esteem (in which) thou (art held)? And exalted thy fame? And exalted for you your esteem?  
  5 So, verily, with every difficulty, there is relief: But lo! with hardship goeth ease, Surely with difficulty is ease.  
  6 Verily, with every difficulty there is relief. Lo! with hardship goeth ease; With difficulty is surely ease.  
  7 Therefore, when thou art free (from thine immediate task), still labour hard, So when thou art relieved, still toil So when you are free, nominate.  
  8 And to thy Lord turn (all) thy attention. And strive to please thy Lord. And make your Lord your exclusive object.
