( The Clot )
In the Name of Allah—the Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.
ﭻ ﭼ ﭽ ﭾ ﭿ ﮀ
Read, ˹O Prophet,˺ in the Name of your Lord Who created—
ﮁ ﮂ ﮃ ﮄ ﮅ
created humans from a clinging clot.
ﮆ ﮇ ﮈ ﮉ
Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous,
ﮊ ﮋ ﮌ ﮍ
Who taught by the pen—
ﮎ ﮏ ﮐ ﮑ ﮒ ﮓ
taught humanity what they knew not.
ﮔ ﮕ ﮖ ﮗ ﮘ
Most certainly, one exceeds all bounds
ﮙ ﮚ ﮛ ﮜ
once they think they are self-sufficient.
ﮝ ﮞ ﮟ ﮠ ﮡ
˹But˺ surely to your Lord is the return ˹of all˺.
ﮢ ﮣ ﮤ ﮥ
Have you seen the man who prevents
ﮦ ﮧ ﮨ ﮩ
a servant ˹of Ours˺ from praying?
ﮪ ﮫ ﮬ ﮭ ﮮ ﮯ
What if this ˹servant˺ is ˹rightly˺ guided,
ﮰ ﮱ ﯓ ﯔ
or encourages righteousness?
ﯕ ﯖ ﯗ ﯘ ﯙ
What if that ˹man˺ persists in denial and turns away?
ﯚ ﯛ ﯜ ﯝ ﯞ ﯟ
Does he not know that Allah sees ˹all˺?
ﯠ ﯡ ﯢ ﯣ ﯤ ﯥ ﯦ
But no! If he does not desist, We will certainly drag him by the forelock—
ﯧ ﯨ ﯩ ﯪ
a lying, sinful forelock.
ﯫ ﯬ ﯭ
So let him call his associates.
ﯮ ﯯ ﯰ
We will call the wardens of Hell.
ﯱ ﯲ ﯳ ﯴ ﯵ ﯶ ﯷ
Again, no! Never obey him ˹O Prophet˺! Rather, ˹continue to˺ prostrate and draw near ˹to Allah˺.
