أَلَمْ نَشْرَحْ لَكَ صَدْرَكَ
HAVE WE NOT opened up thy heart, (1)
وَوَضَعْنَا عَنْكَ وِزْرَكَ
and lifted from thee the burden (2)
الَّذِي أَنْقَضَ ظَهْرَكَ
that had weighed so heavily on thy back? (3)
وَرَفَعْنَا لَكَ ذِكْرَكَ
And [have We not] raised thee high in dignity? (4)
فَإِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا
And, behold, with every hardship comes ease: (5)
إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا
verily, with every hardship comes ease! (6)
فَإِذَا فَرَغْتَ فَانْصَبْ
Hence, when thou art freed [from distress], remain steadfast, (7)
وَإِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ فَارْغَبْ
and unto thy Sustainer turn with love. (8)
