Al-Alaq ("The Clot")
(96:0) In the name of God, the Gracious, the Compassionate.
(96:1) Read in the name of your Lord who has created.
(96:2) He created the human being from an embryo.
(96:3) Read, and your Lord is the Generous One.
(96:4) The One who taught by the pen.
(96:5) He taught the human being what he did not know.
(96:6) Alas, the human being is bound to transgress.
(96:7) When he achieves, he no longer has need!
(96:8) To your Lord is the return.
(96:9) Have you seen the one who deters,
(96:10) A servant from being supportive?
(96:11) Have you seen if he was being guided,
(96:12) Or he ordered righteousness?
(96:13) Have you seen if he lied and turned away?
(96:14) Did he not know that God can see?
(96:15) Alas, if he does not cease, we will strike the frontal lobe.
(96:16) A frontal lobe which lies and errs.
(96:17) So let him call on his supporter.
(96:18) We will call on the guardians.
(96:19) So do not obey him, prostrate and come near.
