96:1  RECITE thou, in the name of thy Lord who created;
96:2  Created man from CLOTS OF BLOOD:
96:3  Recite thou! For thy Lord is the most Beneficent
96:4  Who hath taught the use of the pen;
96:5  Hath taught Man that which he knoweth not
96:6  Nay, verily, Man is insolent
96:7  Because he seeth himself possessed of riches
96:8  Verily, to thy Lord is the return of all
96:9  What thinkest thou of him that holdeth bac
96:10  A servant of God when he prayeth
96:11  What thinkest thou? Hath he followed the true Guidance
96:12  or enjoined Piety
96:13  What thinkest thou? Hath he treated the truth as a lie and turned his back
96:14  What! doth he not know how that God seeth
96:15  Nay, verily, if he desist not, We shall seize him by the forelock
96:16  The lying sinful forelock
96:17  Then let him summon his associates
96:18  We too will summon the guards of Hell
96:19  Nay! obey him not; but adore, and draw nigh to God
