96:1  Read in the name of your Lord who has created
96:2  created man out of a germ- cell.
96:3  Read for your Lord is the most Bountiful One,
96:4  who has taught the use of the pen,
96:5  taught man what he did not know.
96:6  Indeed, man becomes grossly overweening,
96:7  once he thinks himself self- sufficient.
96:8  Surely to your L rd all must return.
96:9  Look at the one who tries to prevent
96:10  a servant of God from praying!
96:11  Think: does he follow the right guidance
96:12  and enjoin [others to be] God-fearing?
96:13  Think: if he denies the truth and turns his back,
96:14  does he not realize that God sees all?
96:15  Nay, if he does not desist, We will most certainly drag him by his forelock,
96:16  his lying, sinful forelock.
96:17  Then let him call his henchmen.
96:18  We will call the guards of hell.
96:19  No, pay no heed to him, but prostrate yourself and draw closer to God.
