1Recite: In the Name of thy Lord who created,
2created Man of a blood-clot.
3Recite: And thy Lord is the Most Generous,
4who taught by the Pen,
5taught Man that he knew not.
6No indeed; surely Man waxes insolent,
7for he thinks himself self-sufficient.
8Surely unto thy Lord is the Returning.
9What thinkest thou? He who forbids
10a servant when he prays --
11What thinkest thou? If he were upon guidance
12or bade to godfearing --
13What thinkest thou? If he cries lies, and turns away -
14Did he not know that God sees?
15No indeed; surely, if he gives not over, We shall seize him by the forelock,
16a lying, sinful forelock.
17So let him call on his concourse!
18We shall call on the guards of Hell.
19No indeed; do thou not obey him, and bow thyself, and draw nigh.
