The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Read (Prophet Muhammad) in the Name of your Lord who created, (1) Created man from a clinging substance. (2) Recite! Your Lord is the most Honorable One, (3) The One Who taught to write with the pen. (4) Teacheth man that which he knew not. (5) Nay, surely man transgresses; (6) That he thinketh himself independent! (7) Surely your returning is to your Lord. (8) HAST THOU ever considered him who tries to prevent (9) A slave when he prayeth? (10) Did you consider: what if he is on the Right Way, (11) Or enjoineth piety? (12) What do you think? Have you seen if he belies and turns away, (13) Does he not know that God observes all things? (14) Nay! If he (Abu Jahl) ceases not, We will catch him by the forelock, (15) A lying, sinful forehead. (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We will call the guards of hell. (18) No indeed! Do not obey him, but prostrate yourself and come closer to God. ۩ (19)
