The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
Recite in the name of your Lord Who created, (1) Hath created man from a clot! (2) Recite! Your Lord is the most Honorable One, (3) Who hath taught mankind by the pen (4) Taught man that which he knew not. (5) Nay! man is most surely inordinate, (6) Because he sees himself free from want. (7) Surely to your Lord is your return. (8) Have you seen him who restrains (9) a worshiper when he prays. (10) Hast thou considered whether he is on the right way, (11) Or enjoined guarding (against evil)? (12) What thinkest thou? If he cries lies, and turns away - (13) Does he not know that Allah sees? (14) Nay! If he (Abu Jahl) ceases not, We will catch him by the forelock, (15) a lying, sinful forelock. (16) So let him summon his helpmates; (17) We will call the guards of hell. (18) No, indeed; do not obey him! Prostrate and come nearer (to Allah). ۩ (19)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
