The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Proclaim! (or read!) in the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created- (1) Created man from an embryo; (2) Recite: and your Lord is Most Generous, (3) who taught by the pen, (4) taught man what he did not know! (5) Indeed, surely the human is very insolent (6) As he bethinkest himself selfsufficient. (7) Verily, to thy Lord is the return (of all). (8) What is your opinion – regarding him who forbids – (9) a worshipper from praying? (10) Have you seen if he is upon guidance (11) Or enjoins Righteousness? (12) Did you consider: what if he gives the lie (to the Truth) and turns away (from it)? (13) Does he not know that God observes all things? (14) Indeed, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock, (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We will call on the angels of punishment (to deal with him)! (18) No indeed! Do not obey him, but prostrate yourself and come closer to God. ۩ (19)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
