In charity, nor
Did he pray!—

He rejected Truth
And turned away!

To his family
In full conceit!

34. Awla laka faawla

(O man!, yea, woe!

(O man!), yea, woe!

That he will be left
Uncontrolled, (without purpose)?

Of sperm emitted
(In lowly form)?

38. Thumma kana AAalaqatan fakhalaqa fasawwa

38. Then did he become
A leech-like clot;
Then did (God) make
And fashion (him)
In due proportion.

39. FajaAAala minhu alzzawjayni alththakara waal-ontha

39. And of him He made
Two sexes, male
And female.

The power to give life
To the dead?
