14.

أَلَمْ يَعْلَمْ بِأَنَّ اللَّهَ يَرَى

Knows he not that Allāh does see (what he does)?

15.

كَلَّا لَئِنْ لَمْ يَنْتَهِ لَنَسْفَعًا بِالنَّاصِيَةِ

Nay! If he (Abū Jahl) ceases not, We will catch him by the forelock,

نَاصِيَةٍ كَاذِبَةٍ خَاطِئَةٍ

A lying, sinful forelock!

فَلْيَدْعُ نَادِيَهُ

Then, let him call upon his council (of helpers),

18.

سَنَدْعُ الزَّبَانِيَةَ

We will call the guards of Hell (to deal with him)!

كَلَّا لَا تُطِعْهُ وَاسْجُدْ وَاقْتَرِبْ  ۩

Nay! (O Muhammad SAW)! Do not obey him (Abū Jahl).

Fall prostrate and draw near to Allāh!
