Translations:
- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)


The surah that opens with the command to highly exalt God, the Divine One who is The Most Exalted, far above all that is unworthy that people wrongly attribute to Him. It is named after "the Most Exalted" (al-aʿlā), mentioned in verse 1. The surah reassures the Prophet Muḥammad that God will help him and urging him to continue with his mission. The temporary nature of this world is highlighted through mention of the short life of green pasture (cf. verse 10:24 and verse 18:45).
The surah is also known as: Glory to Lord in the Highest, The Highest, The Most High.
