Sayyid Qutb rendition of Surah The Clot, Read(al-`Alaq)
96:1 Read in the name of your Lord who has created
96:2 created man out of a germ- cell.
96:3 Read for your Lord is the most Bountiful One,
96:4 who has taught the use of the pen,
96:5 taught man what he did not know.
96:6 Indeed, man becomes grossly overweening,
96:7 once he thinks himself self- sufficient.
96:8 Surely to your L rd all must return.
96:9 Look at the one who tries to prevent
96:10 a servant of God from praying!
96:11 Think: does he follow the right guidance
96:12 and enjoin [others to be] God-fearing?
96:13 Think: if he denies the truth and turns his back,
96:14 does he not realize that God sees all?
96:15 Nay, if he does not desist, We will most certainly drag him by his forelock,
96:16 his lying, sinful forelock.
96:17 Then let him call his henchmen.
96:18 We will call the guards of hell.
96:19 No, pay no heed to him, but prostrate yourself and draw closer to God.
