بِسۡمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
أَلَمۡ نَشۡرَحۡ لَكَ صَدۡرَكَ1 1
Have We not opened your breast (i.e. heart) for you [O Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)!]? (Also see Surah Al-Anam:125).
فَإِنَّ مَعَ ٱلۡعُسۡرِ يُسۡرًا5 5
(Just like We gave you spiritual comfort, there shall be worldly comfort for you too). So, indeed, along with every hardship there is relief.
إِنَّ مَعَ ٱلۡعُسۡرِ يُسۡرٗا6 6
(Since hardships are of many kinds. Hence, this assurance is repeated.) Indeed, along with every hardship there is relief.
فَإِذَا فَرَغۡتَ فَٱنصَبۡ7 7
Hence, when you are free, then put great effort in worshipping (i.e. in Salat, supplication, propagation of Islam, Jihad etc.) till you feel tired. (Hence, Islamic preachers should also engage themselves in remembrance of Allah in private hours. Just preaching others is not enough).
