The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, 1 created man from a clot [of blood]. 2 Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, 3 who has taught [man] the use of the pen 4 taught Man that he knew not. 5 No indeed; surely Man waxes insolent, 6 because he thinks himself self-sufficient: 7 Surely your returning is to your Lord. 8 Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth 9 A servant when he prays? 10 Do you think he is rightly guided, 11 Or enjoins righteousness? 12 Have you seen if he denies and turns away - 13 Does he not know that Allah does see? 14 Let him beware! If he does not desist, We will drag him by the forelock -- 15 his lying sinful forelock. 16 So let him summon his helpmates; 17 [the while] We shall summon the forces of heavenly chastisement! 18 No, not at all. Never obey him. But prostrate yourself and become nigh (to your Lord). ۩ 19
Almighty God's Truth.
