Did you notice?
96:1  Read with the name of your Lord Who created
96:2  Created man from a clot
96:3  Read, and your Lord only is the Most Beneficent
96:4  The One Who taught to write with the pen
96:5  The One Who taught man all what he did not know
96:6  Yes indeed, man is surely rebellious
96:7  As he considers himself independent
96:8  Indeed towards your Lord only is the return
96:9  What is your opinion – regarding him who forbids
96:10  A bondman when he offers the prayer
96:11  What is your opinion – if he were upon guidance
96:12  He would enjoin piety, so how good it would be
96:13  What is your opinion – if he denies and turns away, how wretched will be his state
96:14  Did he not realise that Allah is watching
96:15  Yes certainly, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock
96:16  A forelock that lies, is sinful
96:17  So let him now call his gang
96:18  We will now call the guards
96:19  Yes indeed; do not listen to him - and prostrate, and become close to Us. (Command of Prostration # 14
