The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Recite in the name of your Lord Who created, (1) Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood). (2) Read and your Lord is Most Honorable, (3) who, by the pen, taught the human being: (4) Taught man what he knew not. (5) Nay, surely man transgresses; (6) for he thinks himself self-sufficient. (7) Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Bethinkest thou him who forbiddeth, (9) A servant when he prays? (10) Have you seen if he is upon guidance (11) or bade to godfearing -- (12) Have you considered if he gives the lie to the truth and turns (his) back? (13) Knoweth he not that Allah beholdeth? (14) No indeed; surely, if he gives not over, We shall seize him by the forelock, (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) So let him now call his gang! (17) We shall summon the guards of Hell. (18) No! Do not obey him. But prostrate and draw near [to Allah]. ۩ (19)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
