Did you notice?
96:1  (O Beloved!) Read (commencing) with the Name of Allah, Who has created (everything)
96:2  He created man from a hanging mass (clinging) like a leech (to the mother’s womb)
96:3  Read, and your Lord is Most Generous
96:4  Who taught man (reading and writing) by the pen
96:5  Who (besides that) taught man (all that) which he did not know. Or Who imparted to (the most eminent of) mankind (the chosen Prophet Muhammad [blessings and peace be upon him] without using any pen) the whole knowledge that he was not aware of before
96:6  (But) the fact is that (the disobedient) man rebels
96:7  For the reason that (apparently) he finds himself self-sufficient (in the world)
96:8  Surely, (every man) has to return to your Lord
96:9  Have you seen him who prevents
96:10  The servant (of Allah) when he prays? Or The (beloved and the exalted) servant of Allah (Muhammad [blessings and peace be upon him]) when he offers Prayers
96:11  Well, imagine! If he had been rightly guided
96:12  Or if he had commanded (the people) to be pious (how beneficial it would have been)
96:13  But see now when he has rejected (the true Din [Religion]) and has turned away (from you, what torment is he going to face?
96:14  Does he not know that Allah monitors (minutely all his conduct)
96:15  Beware! If he does not desist (from the denigration of the Holy Prophet [blessings and peace be upon him] and antagonism against the true Din [Religion]), We shall certainly grab his forehead and drag him by the forelock
96:16  His lying (and) sinful forehead
96:17  Then let him call his companions (for help)
96:18  We too shall soon call (Our) guards (the angels appointed to inflict the punishment of Hell)
96:19  No indeed! Do not pay any heed to his doings and, (O Esteemed Beloved,) persist in prostration and keep drawing near (to Us more and more)
