Holy Quran 96


1READ IN THE name of your Lord who created,
2Created man from an embryo;
3Read, for your Lord is most beneficent,
4Who taught by the pen,
5Taught man what he did not know.
6And yet, but yet man is rebellious,
7For he thinks he is sufficient in himself.
8Surely your returning is to your Lord.
9Have you seen him who restrains
10A votary when he turns to his devotions?
11Have you thought, if he had been on guidance
12Or had enjoined piety, (it would have been better)?
13Have you thought that if he denies and turns away,
14Does he not know that God sees?
15And yet indeed if he does not desist We shall drag him by the forelock,
16By the lying, the sinful forelock.
17So let him call his associates,
18We shall call the guards of Hell.
19Beware! Do not obey him, but bow in adoration and draw near (to your Lord).
