Did you notice?
96:1  Recite in the Name of thy Lord Who created
96:2  created man from a blood clot
96:3  Recite! Thy Lord is most noble
96:4  Who taught by the Pen
96:5  taught man that which he knew not
96:6  Nay, truly man is rebelliou
96:7  in that he considers himself beyond need
96:8  Truly unto thy Lord is the return
96:9  Hast thou seen him who prohibit
96:10  a slave when he prays
96:11  Hast thou seen if he does so out of guidance
96:12  or to enjoin reverence
96:13  Hast thou seen if he denied and turned away
96:14  Does he not know that God sees
96:15  Nay, but if he ceases not, We shall surely seize him by the forelock
96:16  a lying, iniquitous forelock
96:17  So let him call his cohorts
96:18  We shall call the guards of Hell
96:19  Nay! Obey him not! But prostrate and draw nigh
