Surah Info

١

Read, ˹O Prophet,˺ in the Name of your Lord Who created—
٢
created humans from a clinging clot.1
٣
Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous,
٤
Who taught by the pen—
٥
taught humanity what they knew not.1 
٦
Most certainly, one exceeds all bounds
٧
once they think they are self-sufficient.
٨
˹But˺ surely to your Lord is the return ˹of all˺.
٩
Have you seen the man who prevents
١٠
a servant ˹of Ours˺ from praying?1
١١
What if this ˹servant˺ is ˹rightly˺ guided,
١٢
or encourages righteousness?
١٣
What if that ˹man˺ persists in denial and turns away?
١٤
Does he not know that Allah sees ˹all˺?
١٥
But no! If he does not desist, We will certainly drag him by the forelock—
١٦
a lying, sinful forelock.1
١٧
So let him call his associates.
١٨
We will call the wardens of Hell.
١٩
Again, no! Never obey him ˹O Prophet˺! Rather, ˹continue to˺ prostrate and draw near ˹to Allah˺.
