John Medows Rodwell rendition of Surah The Clot, Read(al-`Alaq)
96:1 RECITE thou, in the name of thy Lord who created; -
96:2 Created man from CLOTS OF BLOOD: -
96:3 Recite thou! For thy Lord is the most Beneficent,
96:4 Who hath taught the use of the pen; -
96:5 Hath taught Man that which he knoweth not.
96:6 Nay, verily, Man is insolent,
96:7 Because he seeth himself possessed of riches.
96:8 Verily, to thy Lord is the return of all.
96:9 What thinkest thou of him that holdeth back
96:10 A servant of God when he prayeth?
96:11 What thinkest thou? Hath he followed the true Guidance,
96:12 or enjoined Piety?
96:13 What thinkest thou? Hath he treated the truth as a lie and turned his back?
96:14 What! doth he not know how that God seeth?
96:15 Nay, verily, if he desist not, We shall seize him by the forelock,
96:16 The lying sinful forelock!
96:17 Then let him summon his associates;
96:18 We too will summon the guards of Hell:
96:19 Nay! obey him not; but adore, and draw nigh to God.
