The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Read (Prophet Muhammad) in the Name of your Lord who created, (1) created man from a clot of congealed blood. (2) Recite, and your Lord is the most Generous - (3) who taught by the Pen, (4) Taught man that which he knew not. (5) No indeed; surely Man waxes insolent, (6) because he thinks himself self-sufficient: (7) Indeed towards your Lord only is the return. (8) Seest thou one who forbids- (9) A votary when he turns to his devotions? (10) Have you seen if he was upon guidance (11) Or he commandeth piety? (12) Hast thou seen if he denieth (Allah's guidance) and is froward? (13) Does he not know that God sees? (14) Let him beware! If he does not desist, We will drag him by the forelock -- (15) by the lying forelock steeped in sin. (16) Then, let him call (for help) to his council (of comrades): (17) We too would summon the braves of the army. (18) No, not at all. Never obey him. But prostrate yourself and become nigh (to your Lord). ۩ (19)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
