96 Al-'Alaq | The Clot
Read in the name of your Lord who has created.
He created the human being from an embryo.
Read, and your Lord is the Generous One.
The One who taught by the pen.
He taught the human being what he did not know.
Alas, the human being is bound to transgress.
When he achieves, he no longer has need!
To your Lord is the return.
Have you seen the one who deters,
A servant from being supportive?
Have you seen if he was being guided,
Or he ordered righteousness?
Have you seen if he lied and turned away?
Did he not know that God can see?
Alas, if he does not cease, we will strike the frontal lobe.
A frontal lobe which lies and errs.
So let him call on his assembly.
We will call on the guardians.
So do not obey him, prostrate and come near.
