The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Read! In the name of your Lord, who created: 1 created man from a clot [of blood]. 2 Proclaim! And thy Lord is Most Bountiful,- 3 The One Who taught to write with the pen. 4 taught Man that he knew not. 5 Indeed, surely the human is very insolent 6 For he thinks he is sufficient in himself. 7 Indeed towards your Lord only is the return. 8 Have you seen the one who forbids 9 a servant (of Allah) when he prays? 10 Have you seen if he is upon guidance 11 He would enjoin piety, so how good it would be! 12 What will happen if the prohibiting rejects the Truth and turns away from it!? 13 Did he not know that God sees? 14 No! If he does not desist, We will surely drag him by the forelock - 15 A lying, sinning forelock. 16 So, let him call upon his way! 17 We will call the guards of hell. 18 Nay! (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him))! Do not obey him (Abu Jahl). Fall prostrate and draw near to Allah! ۩ 19
True are the words of God the Almighty.
