1
Read, ˹O Prophet,˺ in the Name of your Lord Who created—
2
created humans from a clinging clot.1
3
Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous,
4
Who taught by the pen—
5
taught humanity what they knew not.1 
6
Most certainly, one exceeds all bounds
7
once they think they are self-sufficient.
8
˹But˺ surely to your Lord is the return ˹of all˺.
9
Have you seen the man who prevents
10
a servant ˹of Ours˺ from praying?1
11
What if this ˹servant˺ is ˹rightly˺ guided,
12
or encourages righteousness?
13
What if that ˹man˺ persists in denial and turns away?
14
Does he not know that Allah sees ˹all˺?
15
But no! If he does not desist, We will certainly drag him by the forelock—
16
a lying, sinful forelock.1
17
So let him call his associates.
18
We will call the wardens of Hell.
19
Again, no! Never obey him ˹O Prophet˺! Rather, ˹continue to˺ prostrate and draw near ˹to Allah˺.
