Qur'an - Translation
The Clot

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

[96.1] Read in the name of your Lord Who created.

[96.2] He created man from a clot.

[96.3] Read and your Lord is Most Honorable,

[96.4] Who taught (to write) with the pen,

[96.5] Taught man what he knew not.

[96.6] Nay! man is most surely inordinate,

[96.7] Because he sees himself free from want.

[96.8] Surely to your Lord is the return.

[96.9] Have you seen him who forbids

[96.10] A servant when he prays?

[96.11] Have you considered if he were on the right way,

[96.12] Or enjoined guarding (against evil)?

[96.13] Have you considered if he gives the lie to the truth and turns (his) back?

[96.14] Does he not know that Allah does see?

[96.15] Nay! if he desists not, We would certainly smite his forehead,

[96.16] A lying, sinful forehead.

[96.17] Then let him summon his council,

[96.18] We too would summon the braves of the army.

[96.19] Nay! obey him not, and make obeisance and draw nigh (to Allah).
