N J Dawood (2014) rendition of Surah The Clot, Read(al-`Alaq)
96:1 READ IN the name of your Lord who created ―
96:2 created Man from clots of blood.
96:3 Read! Your Lord is the Most Bountiful One,
96:4 who by the pen taught
96:5 Man what he did not know.
96:6 No! Man transgresses
96:7 in thinking himself his own master:²
96:8 for to your Lord shall all return.
96:9 Consider the man who rebukes
96:10 Our servant when he prays.
96:11 Consider: does he follow the right guidance
96:12 or enjoin true piety?
96:13 Do but consider: if he denies the Truth and pays no heed,
96:14 does he not realize that God sees all?
96:15 No! Let him desist, or We will drag him by the forelock,
96:16 his lying, sinful forelock.
96:17 Then let him call his helpmates:
96:18 We will call the guards of Hell.
96:19 No, never obey him! Prostrate yourself and come nearer.
