96:1  Recite: In the Name of your Lord who created,
96:2  created man from clots of blood.
96:3  Recite: And your Lord is the Most Generous,
96:4  He who taught by the pen,
96:5  taught man what he did not know.
96:6  No indeed! Truly man is unbridled
96:7  seeing himself as self-sufficient.
96:8  Truly it is to your Lord that you will return.
96:9  Have you seen him who prevents
96:10  a slave when he goes to pray?
96:11  Do you think he is rightly guided
96:12  or commands taqwa?
96:13  Or do you see how he has denied and turned away?
96:14  Does he not know that Allah sees?
96:15  No indeed! If he does not desist, We will grab him by the forelock,
96:16  a lying, sinful forelock.
96:17  Let him call his attendants;
96:18  We will call the Guards of Hell!
96:19  No indeed! Do not obey him, but prostrate and draw near.
