IN THE NAME OF GOD, THE MOST GRACIOUS, THE DISPENSER OF GRACE:
Read in the name of Allah, Who created man and taught him by the pen and Those who forbid from the worship of Allah will be dragged to hell by their forelock
1 READ1 in the name of thy Sustainer, who has created -
2 created man out of a germ-cell!2
3 Read - for thy Sustainer is the Most Bountiful One
4 who has taught [man] the use of the pen -
5 taught man what he did not know!3
6 Nay, verily, man becomes grossly overweening
7 whenever he believes himself to be self-sufficient:
8 for, behold, unto thy Sustainer all must return.4
9 HAST THOU ever considered him who tries to prevent
10 a servant [of God] from praying?5
11 Hast thou considered whether he is on the right way,
12 or is concerned with God-consciousness?6
13 Hast thou considered whether he may [not] be giving the lie to the truth and turning his back [upon it]?7
14 Does he, then, not know that God sees [all]?
15 Nay, if he desist not, We shall most surely drag him down upon his forehead -8
16 the lying, rebellious, forehead! -
17 and then let him summon [to his aid] the counsels of his own [spurious] wisdom,9
18 [the while] We shall summon the forces of heavenly chastisement!
19 Nay, pay thou no heed to him, but prostrate thyself [before God] and draw close [unto Him]!
