The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Recite in the name of your Lord who created - (1) He created man from a clot. (2) Read and your Lord is Most Honorable, (3) who, by the pen, taught the human being: (4) Hath taught man that which he knew not. (5) And yet, but yet man is rebellious, (6) As he considers himself independent! (7) Surely to your Lord is your return. (8) Have you seen the one who forbids (9) a servant when he prays -- (10) Bethinkest thou, if he is himself guided, (11) or if he commands others to maintain piety!? (12) Do you see how he has denied the truth and turned away from it? (13) Does he not know that God sees? (14) Nay, but if he cease not We will seize him by the forelock - (15) A forelock, lying, sinning. (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) [the while] We shall summon the forces of heavenly chastisement! (18) (Muhammad), never yield to him! Prostrate yourself and try to come closer to God. ۩ (19)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
