Edward Henry Palmer rendition of Surah The Clot, Read(al-`Alaq)
96:1 READ, in the name of thy Lord!
96:2 Who created man from congealed blood!
96:3 Read, for thy Lord is most generous!
96:4 Who taught the pen!
96:5 Taught man what he did not know!
96:6 Nay, verily, man is indeed outrageous
96:7 at seeing himself get rich!
96:8 Verily, unto thy Lord is the return!
96:9 Hast thou considered him who forbids
96:10 a servant when he prays?
96:11 Hast thou considered if he were in guidance
96:12 or bade piety?
96:13 Hast thou considered if he said it was a lie, and turned his back?
96:14 Did he not know that God can see?
96:15 Nay, surely, if he do not desist we will drag him by the forelock!-
96:16 the lying sinful forelock!
96:17 So let him call his counsel:
96:18 we will call the guards of hell!
96:19 Nay, obey him not, but adore and draw nigh!
