In the Name of Allh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


[096:001] Read! In the Name of your Lord Who has created (all that exists).


[096:002] He has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood).


[096:003] Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous.


[096:004] Who has taught (the writing) by the pen.


[096:005] He has taught man that which he knew not.


[096:006] Nay! Verily, man does transgress (in disbelief and evil deed).


[096:007] Because he considers himself self-sufficient.


[096:008] Surely, to your Lord is the return.


[096:009] Have you (O Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) seen him (i.e. Ab Jahl) who prevents


[096:010] A slave (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) when he prays?


[096:011] Have you seen if he (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) is on the guidance (of Allh)


[096:012] Or enjoins piety?


[096:013] Have you seen if he (Ab Jahl) denies (the truth, i.e. this Qur'n) and turns away?


[096:014] Knows he not that Allh sees (what he does)?


[096:015] Nay! If he (Ab Jahl) ceases not, We will catch him by the forelock


[096:016] A lying, sinful forelock!


[096:017] Then let him call upon his council (of helpers).


[096:018] We will call out the guards of Hell (to deal with him)!


[096:019] Nay! (O Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam])! Do not obey him (Ab Jahl). Fall prostrate and draw near (to Allh)!




* (V.96:19) Prostration (see the List of Prostration Places at the end).
