The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Recite in the name of your Lord who created - (1) Created man from a clinging substance. (2) Recite: and your Lord is Most Generous, (3) who, by the pen, taught the human being: (4) Taught man what he did not know. (5) Nay, but verily man is rebellious (6) That he thinketh himself independent! (7) Surely! Unto your Lord is the return. (8) Have you seen one who prevents (9) A votary when he turns to his devotions? (10) Have you seen if he was upon guidance (11) Or enjoineth piety? (12) Did you consider: what if he gives the lie (to the Truth) and turns away (from it)? (13) Is he then unaware that Allah seeth? (14) Nay! If he (Abu Jahl) ceases not, We will catch him by the forelock, (15) The lying, sinful forelock - (16) Then let him summon his council, (17) We also shall call the infernal guards. (18) No! Do not obey him. But prostrate and draw near [to Allah]. ۩ (19)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
