96:1  Read in the name of your Lord who creates —
96:2  Creates man from a clinging substance
96:3  Read and your Lord is most Liberal
96:4  Who taught by the pen —
96:5  Taught mankind what it knew not.h
96:6  Man, on the other hand, is certainly indeed prone to transgression
96:7  As he sees himself independent of any divine help
96:8  Indeed, to your Lord is the return
96:9  Have you seen him who forbid
96:10  A devotee when he prays
96:11  Do you see if he [the devotee] is on the right guidance
96:12  Or enjoins piety
96:13  [And] do you see if he [who forbids the devotee from praying] denies [Guidance] and turns away [from it]
96:14  Does he not know that Allah does indeed see [his wickedness]
96:15  Nay! If he does not desist, We will drag him by the forelock —
96:16  A lying, sinning forelock
96:17  Then let him call those who would help him
96:18  We will call the guardians of Hell
96:19  Nay! Obey him not, but prostrate and get near (to Allah)
