96:1  Read, ˹O Prophet,˺ in the Name of your Lord Who created—
96:2  created humans from a clinging clot.
96:3  Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous,
96:4  Who taught by the pen—
96:5  taught humanity what they knew not.
96:6  Most certainly, one exceeds all bounds
96:7  once they think they are self-sufficient.
96:8  ˹But˺ surely to your Lord is the return ˹of all˺.
96:9  Have you seen the man who prevents
96:10  a servant ˹of Ours˺ from praying?
96:11  What if this ˹servant˺ is ˹rightly˺ guided,
96:12  or encourages righteousness?
96:13  What if that ˹man˺ persists in denial and turns away?
96:14  Does he not know that Allah sees ˹all˺?
96:15  But no! If he does not desist, We will certainly drag him by the forelock—
96:16  a lying, sinful forelock.
96:17  So let him call his associates.
96:18  We will call the wardens of Hell.
96:19  Again, no! Never obey him ˹O Prophet˺! Rather, ˹continue to˺ prostrate and draw near ˹to Allah˺.
