96 THE BLOOD-CLOT (1 – 19)

In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

Recite: In the Name of thy Lord who created, created Man of a blood-clot. Recite: And thy Lord is the Most Generous, who taught by the Pen, 5taught Man that he knew not.

No indeed; surely Man waxes insolent, for he thinks himself self-sufficient. Surely unto thy Lord is the Returning.

What thinkest thou? He who forbids 10a servant when he prays— What thinkest thou? If he were upon guidance or bade to godfearing— What thinkest thou? If he cries lies, and turns away— Did he not know that God sees?

15No indeed; surely, if he gives not over, We shall seize him by the forelock, a lying, sinful forelock. So let him call on his concourse! We shall call on the guards of Hell.

No indeed; do thou not obey him, and bow thyself, and draw nigh.
