George Sale rendition of Surah The Clot, Read(al-`Alaq)
96:1 Read, in the name of thy Lord, Who hath created all things;
96:2 who hath created man of congealed blood.
96:3 Read, by thy most beneficent Lord;
96:4 Who taught the use of the pen;
96:5 Who teacheth man that which he knoweth not.
96:6 Assuredly. Verily man becometh insolent,
96:7 because he seeth himself abound in riches.
96:8 Verily unto thy Lord shall be the return of all.
96:9 What thinkest thou as to him
96:10 who forbiddeth our servant, when he prayeth?
96:11 What thinkest thou; if he follow the right direction;
96:12 or command piety?
96:13 What thinkest thou; if he accuse the divine revelations of falsehood, and turn his back?
96:14 Doth he not know that God seeth?
96:15 Assuredly. Verily, if he forbear not, We will drag him by the forelock,
96:16 the lying, sinful forelock.
96:17 And let him call his council to his assistance:
96:18 We also will call the infernal guards to cast him into hell.
96:19 Assuredly. Obey him not: But continue to adore God; and draw nigh unto Him.
