96:1  Read in the name of thy Lord who creates -
96:2  Creates man from a clot
96:3  Read and thy Lord is most Generous
96:4  Who taught by the pen
96:5  Taught man what he knew not
96:6  Nay, man is surely inordinate
96:7  Because he looks upon himself as self-sufficient
96:8  Surely to thy Lord is the return
96:9  Hast thou seen him who forbid
96:10  A servant when he prays
96:11  Seest thou is he is on the right way
96:12  Or enjoins observance of duty
96:13  Seest thou if he denies and turns away
96:14  Knows he not that Allah sees
96:15  Nay, if he desist not, We will seize him by the forelock -
96:16  A lying, sinful forelock
96:17  Then let him summon his council
96:18  We will summon the braves of the army
96:19  Nay! Obey him not, but prostrate thyself, and draw nigh (to Allah)
