(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.
