096.001 Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth,
096.002 Createth man from a clot.
096.003 Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous,
096.004 Who teacheth by the pen,
096.005 Teacheth man that which he knew not.
096.006 Nay, but verily man is rebellious
096.007 That he thinketh himself independent!
096.008 Lo! unto thy Lord is the return.
096.009 Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth
096.010 A slave when he prayeth ?
096.011 Hast thou seen if he relieth on the guidance (of Allah)
096.012 Or enjoineth piety ?
096.013 Hast thou seen if he denieth (Allah's guidance) and is froward ?
096.014 Is he then unaware that Allah seeth ?
096.015 Nay, but if he cease not We will seize him by the forelock -
096.016 The lying, sinful forelock -
096.017 Then let him call upon his henchmen!
096.018 We will call the guards of hell.
096.019 Nay, Obey not thou him. But prostrate thyself, and draw near (unto Allah).
