Recite in the name of your Lord who created -
He created man from a clot.
Recite, and your Lord is the most Generous -
Who taught by the pen -
Taught man what he knew not.
No! [But] indeed, man transgresses
Because he sees himself free from want.
Indeed, to your Lord is the return.
Have you seen the one who forbids
A servant when he prays?
Have you considered if he were on the right way,
Or enjoins righteousness?
Have you seen if he denies and turns away
Does he not know that Allah sees?
Let him beware! If he desist not, We will drag him by the forelock,-
A lying, sinful forelock!
Then let him call his associates;
We will call the guards of hell.
No! Do not obey him. But prostrate and draw near [to Allah ].
