Arthur John Arberry rendition of Surah The Clot, Read(al-`Alaq)
96:1 Recite: In the Name of thy Lord who created,
96:2 created Man of a blood-clot.
96:3 Recite: And thy Lord is the Most Generous,
96:4 who taught by the Pen,
96:5 taught Man that he knew not.
96:6 No indeed; surely Man waxes insolent,
96:7 for he thinks himself self-sufficient.
96:8 Surely unto thy Lord is the Returning.
96:9 What thinkest thou? He who forbids
96:10 a servant when he prays --
96:11 What thinkest thou? If he were upon guidance
96:12 or bade to godfearing --
96:13 What thinkest thou? If he cries lies, and turns away -
96:14 Did he not know that God sees?
96:15 No indeed; surely, if he gives not over, We shall seize him by the forelock,
96:16 a lying, sinful forelock.
96:17 So let him call on his concourse!
96:18 We shall call on the guards of Hell.
96:19 No indeed; do thou not obey him, and bow thyself, and draw nigh.
