The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
Read (Prophet Muhammad) in the Name of your Lord who created, (1) created man from a clot [of blood]. (2) Recite! Your Lord is the most Honorable One, (3) Who taught by the pen - (4) Has taught man that which he knew not. (5) By no means: Verily man exorbitateth. (6) That he thinketh himself independent! (7) Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (8) What thinkest thou? He who forbids (9) A servant when he prays? (10) What will happen if the praying person is rightly guided (11) Or he commandeth piety? (12) Did you consider: what if he gives the lie (to the Truth) and turns away (from it)? (13) Knoweth he not that Allah beholdeth? (14) Yes certainly, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock. (15) his lying sinful forelock. (16) Then, let him call upon his council (of helpers), (17) We will call on the angels of punishment (to deal with him)! (18) By no means! Obey not thou him. Continue to adore, and continue to draw nigh. ۩ (19)
