The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
Read! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists), (1) created man from a clot [of blood]. (2) Read - for thy Sustainer is the Most Bountiful One (3) who taught by the pen, (4) taught man what he did not know! (5) Yet man behaves arrogantly, (6) That he thinketh himself independent! (7) Verily, to thy Lord is the return (of all). (8) What is your opinion – regarding him who forbids – (9) a servant [of God] from praying? (10) Have you seen if he is upon guidance (11) Or enjoineth piety? (12) What thinkest thou? If he cries lies, and turns away - (13) Does he not know that Allah does see? (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 too would summon the braves of the army. (18) No, indeed; do not obey him! Prostrate and come nearer (to Allah). ۩ (19)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
