The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
(Muhammad), read in the name of your Lord who created (all things). (1) Created man from a clinging substance. (2) Read - for thy Sustainer is the Most Bountiful One (3) Who taught by the pen, (4) Taught man what he knew not. (5) Nay, but man doth transgress all bounds, (6) For he thinks he is sufficient in himself. (7) Surely unto thy Lord is the Returning. (8) Did you see him who forbids (9) a servant [of God] from praying? (10) Hast thou seen if he relieth on the guidance (of Allah) (11) or if he commands others to maintain piety!? (12) Have you seen if he denies and turns away - (13) Does he not realize that God sees him? (14) Indeed, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock, (15) the lying, rebellious forehead! (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We will call the guards of hell. (18) No indeed; do thou not obey him, and bow thyself, and draw nigh. ۩ (19)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
