Read in the Name of your Lord who created!
He created man from a clinging substance.
Read! Your Lord is the Most Generous,
Who taught by the pen,
Teaching man which he knew not.
Nay! Indeed man transgresses
When he sees himself becoming self-sufficient.
Indeed to your Lord, (O' man), is the return.
Have you seen the one who forbids
A servant when he intends to pray?
Did you see him whether he was on the right path or not
Or advocating piety?
Did you see when he had denied and averted?
Did he not know that Allâh sees?
Nay! If he does not give up, We will surely drag him by the forelock,
Lying, sinful forelock!
Then let him call his associates.
We will call the ‘Angels of Hellfire’.
Nay! Obey him not, but prostrate and draw near!
