96:1  READ with the Name of your Rabb (with the knowledge that comprises your being) who created.
96:2  Created man from alaq (a clot of blood; genetic composition).
96:3  READ! For your Rabb is Akram (most generous).
96:4  Who taught (programmed the genes and the essential qualities) by the Pen.
96:5  Taught man that which he knew not.
96:6  No (it is not like what they think)! Indeed, man transgresses (pursues and indulges in his desires when he lives cocooned from his essence);
96:7  Because he sees himself as self-sufficient (the veil of his ego makes him think he is not in need of the reality).
96:8  Indeed, to your Rabb is the return!
96:9  Did you see the one who prevents,
96:10  A servant at prayer!
96:11  Did you see (have a think)! What if he is living the reality?
96:12  Or demands protection!
96:13  Have a think! What if he denied (his essence) and turned away?
96:14  Does he not know that Allah sees?
96:15  No (it is not like what they think)! Indeed, if he does not desist, We will drag him by his forehead (brain)!
96:16  A lying, mistaken (driven by corporeality) forehead (brain)!
96:17  Then let him call his council!
96:18  And We shall call the keepers of Hell (the degenerating forces of Fire)!
96:19  No, do not! Do not obey him! Prostrate and draw near! (This is a verse of prostration.)
