Ali Quli Qarai, The Qur’ān with a Phrase-by-Phrase English Translation (2005)

2 and relieve you of your burden
3 which [almost] broke your back?
4 Did We not exalt your name?
5 Indeed ease accompanies hardship.
6 Indeed ease accompanies hardship.
7 So when you are done, appoint,1
8 and turn eagerly to your Lord.

95. Sūrat al-Tīn 2

In the Name of Allah,
the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.

1 By the fig and the olive,
2 by Mount Sinai,
3 by this secure town:3
4 We certainly created man
in the best of forms;
5 then We relegated him to the lowest of the low,
6 except those who have faith and do righteous deeds.
There will be an everlasting reward for them.
7 So what makes you deny the Retribution?
8 Is not Allah the fairest of all judges?

1 Or ‘when you are finished [with prayer], exert yourself [in supplicating to Allah].’

2 Named after ‘the fig’ (tīn) mentioned in verse 1.

3 That is, the holy city of Makkah.
