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, for your Lord is most beneficent, (3) Who teacheth by the pen, (4) Taught man that which he knew not. (5) Yet man behaves arrogantly, (6) Because he sees himself self-sufficient. (7) Surely your returning is to your Lord. (8) What thinkest thou? He who forbids (9) a servant of Ours from prayer? (10) Bethinkest thou, if he is himself guided, (11) Or had enjoined piety, (it would have been better)? (12) Do you see how he has denied the truth and turned away from it? (13) Does he, then, not know that God sees [all]? (14) And yet indeed if he does not desist We shall drag him by the forelock, (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) Then let him call upon his henchmen! (17) We shall call the guards of Hell. (18) Beware! Do not obey him, but bow in adoration and draw near (to your Lord). ۩ (19)
Almighty God's Truth.
