The Clear Quran, Dr. Mustafa Khattab rendition of Surah The Clot, Read(al-`Alaq)
96:1 Read, ˹O Prophet,˺ in the Name of your Lord Who created—
96:2 created humans from a clinging clot.
96:3 Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous,
96:4 Who taught by the pen—
96:5 taught humanity what they knew not.
96:6 Most certainly, one exceeds all bounds
96:7 once they think they are self-sufficient.
96:8 ˹But˺ surely to your Lord is the return ˹of all˺.
96:9 Have you seen the man who prevents
96:10 a servant ˹of Ours˺ from praying?
96:11 What if this ˹servant˺ is ˹rightly˺ guided,
96:12 or encourages righteousness?
96:13 What if that ˹man˺ persists in denial and turns away?
96:14 Does he not know that Allah sees ˹all˺?
96:15 But no! If he does not desist, We will certainly drag him by the forelock—
96:16 a lying, sinful forelock.
96:17 So let him call his associates.
96:18 We will call the wardens of Hell.
96:19 Again, no! Never obey him ˹O Prophet˺! Rather, ˹continue to˺ prostrate and draw near ˹to Allah˺.
