1.  *     Have We not opened your breast for you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him))?
2.  *     And removed from you your burden,
3.  *     Which weighed down your back?
4.  *     And raised high your fame?
5.  *     So verily, with the hardship, there is relief,
6.  *     Verily, with the hardship, there is relief (i.e. there is one hardship with two reliefs, so one hardship cannot overcome two reliefs).
7.  *     So when you have finished (from your occupation), then stand up for Allahs worship (i.e. stand up for prayer).
8.  *     And to your Lord (Alone) turn (all your intentions and hopes and) your invocations.
