Did you notice?

96:1  Read in the name of your Lord who has created.
96:2  He created man from an embryo.
96:3  Read, and your Lord is the Generous One.
96:4  The One who taught by the pen.
96:5  He taught man what he did not know.
96:6  Alas, man is bound to transgress.
96:7  When he achieves, he no longer has need
96:8  To your Lord is the return.
96:9  Have you seen the one who prohibits,
96:10  A servant from making the contact?
96:11  Have you seen if he was being guided,
96:12  Or he ordered righteousness?
96:13  Have you seen if he lied and turned away?
96:14  Did he not know that God can see?
96:15  Alas, if he does not cease, We will strike the forelock.
96:16  A forelock which lies and errs.
96:17  So let him call on his supporter.
96:18  We will call on the guardians.
96:19  So do not obey him, prostrate and come near.
