The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
Recite in the name of your Lord Who created, (1) created the human from a (blood) clot. (2) Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) who, by the pen, taught the human being: (4) Taught man that which he knew not. (5) Indeed, surely the human is very insolent (6) Because he considers himself self-sufficient. (7) Indeed, to your Lord is the returning. (8) What thinkest thou? He who forbids (9) a servant [of God] from praying? (10) Seest thou if he is on (the road of) Guidance?- (11) Or had enjoined piety, (it would have been better)? (12) Did you consider: what if he gives the lie (to the Truth) and turns away (from it)? (13) does he not know that Allah sees? (14) Nay, but if he cease not We will seize him by the forelock - (15) A lying, sinning forelock. (16) So let him call on his concourse! (17) We shall call on the guards of Hell. (18) Beware! Do not obey him, but bow in adoration and draw near (to your Lord). ۩ (19)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
