087 – Al A’laa – The Most High

This is the shortest of the Musabbihat; the seven suwer that begin with the glorification of Allah. It forms a hymn in praise of Allah. It is the first verse of this sura that the Prophet (pbuh) recommended to be used in the sajda of Salaa. Success is stated as purification of the soul and the sura ends with a mention of the same message in the earlier Scriptures; as well as the Scriptures of Prophets Ibrahim (pbuh) and Musa (pbuh).
