The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, (1) created man from a clot of congealed blood. (2) Recite, and your Lord is the most Generous - (3) Who hath taught mankind by the pen (4) taught the human what he did not know. (5) No indeed; surely Man waxes insolent, (6) because he thinks that he is independent. (7) Surely to your Lord is your return. (8) What thinkest thou? He who forbids (9) a servant (of Allah) when he prays? (10) Have you seen if he is upon guidance (11) Or enjoins piety? (12) What thinkest thou? If he cries lies, and turns away - (13) Does he not know that God sees? (14) Yes certainly, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock. (15) a lying, sinful forelock. (16) Then let him summon his council, (17) We will now call the guards! (18) By no means! Obey not thou him. Continue to adore, and continue to draw nigh. ۩ (19)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
