Did you notice?
96:1  Recite in the name of your Lord Who created
96:2  created man from a clot of congealed blood
96:3  Recite: and your Lord is Most Generous
96:4  Who taught by the pen
96:5  taught man what he did not know
96:6  Nay, surely man transgresses
96:7  for he believes himself to be self-sufficient
96:8  Surely to your Lord is your return
96:9  Did you see him who forbid
96:10  a servant (of Allah) when he prays
96:11  Did you consider: what if he is on the Right Way
96:12  and enjoins piety
96:13  Did you consider: what if he gives the lie (to the Truth) and turns away (from it)
96:14  Does he not know that Allah sees everything
96:15  No indeed; if he does not desist, We shall drag him by the forelock
96:16  by the lying forelock steeped in sin
96:17  So let him summon his helpmates
96:18  We too shall summon the guards of Hell
96:19  No, not at all. Never obey him. But prostrate yourself and become nigh (to your Lord)
