Did you notice?
96:1  Read! In the name of your Lord, who created
96:2  created man from a clot [of blood]
96:3  Read! Your Lord is the Most Bountiful On
96:4  who taught by the pen
96:5  taught man what he did not know
96:6  Yet man behaves arrogantly
96:7  because he thinks himself self-sufficient
96:8  truly, all will return to your Lord
96:9  Have you seen one who prevent
96:10  a worshipper from praying
96:11  Do you think he is rightly guided
96:12  or enjoins true piety
96:13  Do you see how he has denied the truth and turned away from it
96:14  Does he not know that God observes all things
96:15  Let him beware! If he does not desist, We will drag him by the foreloc
96:16  his lying, sinful forelock
96:17  Then let him call his associates
96:18  We shall summon the guards of Hell
96:19  No indeed! Do not obey him, but prostrate yourself and come closer to God
