Did you notice?
96:1  Read with the name of your Lord who created (every thing)
96:2  He created man from a clot of blood
96:3  Read, and your Lord is the most gracious
96:4  who imparted knowledge by means of the pen
96:5  He taught man what he did not know
96:6  In fact, man crosses the limits
96:7  because he deems himself to be free of need
96:8  Surely to your Lord is the return
96:9  Have you seen him who forbid
96:10  a servant of Allah when he prays
96:11  Tell me, if he is on the right path
96:12  or bids piety, (would the former still forbid him?
96:13  Tell me, if he rejects (the true faith) and turns away
96:14  does he not know that Allah is watching (him)
96:15  No! If he does not desist, We will certainly drag (him) by forelock
96:16  a lying, sinful forelock
96:17  So let him call the men of his council
96:18  We will call the soldiers of the Hell
96:19  No! Never obey him, and bow down in sajdah, and come close to Me
